Jon & Emily's Waldenwoods Wedding

I photographed Emily and Jon in Chicago for their engagement session a few months back and it was so much fun. They are so very sweet and in love and their wedding day totally reflected that. Emily and Jon love nature, so we explored the Waldenwoods grounds to get the look they wanted. Emily did such an amazing job picking out the most beautiful and vibrant colors for the cake accents, table arrangements, and bridal party attire. It all went together perfectly for a warm and intimate Waldenwoods reception. And wow, Emily was such a stunning bride! I know Jon truly appreciates Emily and I know they will live a happy life together. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Goslow!

Mark & Katie's Grand Rapids McKay Tower Wedding

You'll remember Katie and Mark from their rad Chicago engagement session a few months back. Their Grand Rapids wedding was just as awesome! I got the chance to photograph the beautiful ceremony at Mayflower Congregational, then we headed to the Aquinas campus- a favorite spot of the bride and groom- and downtown Grand Rapids for photos. As a Grand Valley State alumni, I really enjoyed doing photos in one of my favorite cities. Katie and Mark then swept in from our downtown photos to an elegant reception in the heart of town at the McKay Tower Ballroom, where they laughed and danced the night away. It was a beautiful day! Congratulations, Katie and Mark, and thank you for asking me to be a part of such a special time in your lives!

Mike & Meghan's Oakhurst Country Club Wedding

Mike and Meghan are a sweet couple who I photographed last fall at MSU Tollgate Farms. What a nice pair! The two had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Oakhurst Golf & Country Club surrounded by family and friends. The day was full of simple, delicate and romantic details, like the group blessing of the rings during the ceremony as they were passed from guest to guest in a little pouch made with lace from Meghan's mother's wedding dress, the darling shade of blue flowers in the bouquets, or the beautiful floral arrangements on the birch arbor where Meghan and Mike said "I do". It was an honor to be a part of this special day. Congratulations, Mike and Meghan!

Laura & Scott's Inner Circle Estate Wedding

I just love Laura and Scott! You may remember their good lookin' faces from their Plymouth engagement session this past winter. Scott was so wowed by Laura when she first walked into his work last year, he said to his coworker that if he does one thing today, it'll be to get her phone number. Well, he did, they went out, and in less than two months, Scott proposed and Laura said yes! I loved being a part of their emotional and amazing day at the gorgeous and one of a kind Inner Circle Estate. They truly are incredible people and a perfect match! Enjoy several of my favorites. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Pluff!

Danielle & Jack's Detroit Blessed Sacrament Wedding

Jack's expression during the first look says it all. Danielle is a stunner and these two are so very in love. I had such a wonderful time photographing them recently at one of Detroit's most breath-taking churches, Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and the lovely Italian American Banquet Center. We had stunning weather and Danielle and Jack were just so great in allowing me the room to get some fabulous photos of them together. The whole day was so lighthearted and fun and it was really a pleasure to be a part of it. As the photographer, you know the bride and groom are awesome when you almost can't leave at the end of the night! I wish the new Mr. and Mrs. Oliver all the best as they start their new lives together!
