planterra wedding: kylie & mike

4.12.17 - weddings by Courtney

I pulled up to Kylie’s parents house on a cloud filled and rainy day, but I kid you not as soon as I walked into their beautiful home the day suddenly brightened. Their home was perfect for the ladies to get ready in. The master suite was turned into a beauty spa. The ladies had hair, makeup and refreshments all set up, but it wouldn’t have been complete without a girly movie playing (confessions of a shopaholic.) The ladies had on the prettiest matching robes before they got dressed for the day. Once they all put their dresses on (and looked fabulous) I heard someone say “okay… this is really happening!” I loved the excitement of the day and Mike looked fantastic (I loved the blue suits.) I think as each person arrived at Planterra they immediately thought, “wow.” The flowers by Planterra were stunning and absolutely popped against the white linens and the candlelight was so dreamy. All of the little details of the reception came together so beautifully! Since the rain had stopped the bridal party braved the outdoors and looked fabulous. Their ceremony had everyone tearing up as Kylie and Mike read the sweetest letters to each other. The words they wrote to one another were perfection. Speeches came next and were followed with the most amazing surprise performance from Kylie’s dad. He wrote a song just for her on her wedding day! As soon as the band began the dance floor was filled and the celebration went into the night. Congratulations to you both. I loved being a part of your special day and wish upon you a lifetime of happiness.

lovett hall wedding: jessica & ryan

4.12.17 - weddings by Courtney

Jessica and Ryan had the most amazing day for their wedding and it couldn’t have happened to a better couple. The original forecast was 90% chance of rain (all day long), but clearly the stars aligned and they got a beautiful unseasonably warm day. When I arrived the ladies were getting ready. They all looked stunning, even when the tears of joy started to flow (I promise there was much more laughter and smiles, than tears that day.) Jessica got ready and looked absolutely gorgeous. Her dress was beautiful with an amazing lace train. We took a few photos around the Dearborn Inn (I love that checkered floor) before heading over to Lovett Hall and the The Henry Ford Museum . We had a nice and relaxing afternoon hitting some of my favorite spots to photograph. Jessica and Ryan had a very sweet and intimate ceremony, and after we rode in the cutest horse drawn carriage around the village. The party continued upstairs in Lovett hall where the room was filled with joy, and laughter. Congratulations to you both!

ann arbor engagement session: Alex & Blair

4.5.17 - engagements by Kristin G.

I fell in love with these two the instant that we met at the law quad on U of M’s campus. Alex + Blair have such style, killer smiles and they are both so genuine that it was hard to not adore them immediately. The evening of their March session was the nicest day of the year thus far, which made me happy since these two were only in for the weekend from the east coast. Since it was the first real Spring day, campus was buzzing- as everyone was out enjoying the weather and these two were great sports as we’d wait until the coast was clear to shoot our portraits. As these two met on campus, they took me to some of their favorite spots and we shared lots of laughs, especially when Blair took charge at the end of our session and orchestrated their final poses. These two are super fun and it made me even more excited to shoot their wedding this July! xo

the inn at st. john's: christi & luke

4.5.17 - weddings by Kristin G.

As soon as I walked into the presidential suite at the Inn at St. John’s and felt the vibe of the bridal party, I knew today was going to be a good day. Not only is this couple absolutely stunning, but add in Christi’s not one, but two, wedding gowns and Luke’s Army officer uniform and these two were off the charts. One of my favorite moments of the day was the first look, as it included Christi’s sweet six-year-old son and, admittedly, my eyes welled behind the camera. The day flowed smoothly (thanks to Kristina Lambert) and before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony, which was extra special as it was officiated by Luke’s uncle. The entry of the b+g into their reception was another absolute fave, as they entered under a saber arch, where the password for entry was a kiss. It was such a fun moment and everyone cheered as they made their way into the room. The sweet's table was adorable, full of cupcakes and cake made by Zingerman's. The overall ambience at The Inn at St. Johns was gorgeous, but I’ll always be won over with gold metallic and amber lighting. A huge congratulations to the both of you! xo

birmingham engagement session: katie & nicholas

3.14.17 - engagements by Kristin G.

You know, if there is sunshine on a February evening in the mitten- I'll take the cold over milder, overcast temps any day! I met Katie + Nick in downtown Birmingham for their engagement shoot and adored them immediately. They are both so down-to-earth and I really enjoyed laughing with them and getting to know who they are as we walked around the city. You'd never know it was cold, as they absolutely rocked their session and I always enjoy when my couple trusts me enough to stop traffic for that perfect shot (gah! That light!)! It makes me super excited to shoot their fabulous wedding this summer! A huge congrats to the both of you! xo
