Brian and Leanne's Winter Waldenwoods Wedding

Happy Friday and long weekend, everyone! I hope you all enjoy whatever special plans you have over the next 3 days. I’m excited to share my friend Leanne’s wedding feature on the blog this evening. Leanne and her love, Brian, who you may remember from their sunset Detroit Yacht Club engagement session (see it again HERE!), tied the knot at St. William’s church then had a fabulous elegant wintery wedding reception at the always lovely Waldenwoods Cromaine Lodge (it’s always a pleasure to shoot there any time of year!). Some of my favorite parts of the day were really the simple things, like Leanne’s always smiling face and her gorgeous green eyes, or Brian’s little moments with his son, William. Or the way Leanne looked so adoringly at her dad. I love it and it made me softly cry for sure, which won’t be a surprise to those who know me. I’ve never seen Leanne so happy and glowy and Brian clearly brings out the best in her, just what anyone would want for their friend! Leanne and Brian were troopers for their VERY chilly outdoor portraits and thankfully Leanne had thought ahead and had a gorgeous bridal wrap. I’m so glad they were willing to go outside because their day had the perfect winter wonderland scenery! Guests danced the night away to the DJing of Kurt Lewis, a personal favorite fellow vendor of mine. Congratulations, Brian and Leanne! I wish you a lifetime of wedded happiness. I hope you enjoy the photos. xoxo Venue: Respective homes, Saint William’s Catholic Church, and Waldenwoods Resort | Photography: Kate Saler Photography | Hair: Silvia at Salon Evo | Makeup: Erica Michon, talented bridesmaid | Bride's dress: Bombshell Bridal | Groom's attire: Brighton Tux Shop | Bridesmaid dresses: Allure Bridal | Cake - Pastry Palace | Flowers: Petals and Posies, LLC | DJ: Kurt Lewis | Contact Kate Saler Photography HERE
