So I am making a concerted effort (again) to try to blog with more regularity (check back with me in a week to see how thats going :p)
But I am excited to kick off blogging this 2016 season with my first 2016 wedding!
I knew Kara from when I lived with my parents, her mom lived a few houses down from my parents and we rode the bus together! When she approached me about photographing her wedding we started with an awesome downtown Ann Arbor engagement session! The love Michael and her had really made me excited to capture their wedding and without further ado check out this amazing and classic beauty! When Kara got ready she told me about a journal Michael began keeping for her after he bought her their engagement ring. It was absolutely romantic and perfect. This was that journal! Kara’s dress was just STUNNING and what made it more perfect was she added little details that made the dress completely original. Both the top and the belt were things she tracked down on her own! While she made the dress beautiful the details really brought everything together. They got married at the beautiful St. Thomas Parish in Ann Arbor!Their flowers were absolutely perfect by the amazing Maureen’s Designs in Saline. I am such a sucker for succulents! Their exit was with lavender which made for a fun and scented afternoon 🙂 Kara really wanted some pictures downtown with the theaters and we were traffic stoppers! This tree was *MAGICAL* Like seriously, is this real life?This group was SO much fun!And they battled the drizzle with grace, good humor and FUN! ❤ a beautiful ‘traditional’ shot featuring a gorgeous couple and stunning architecture. #winning So the rain dampened our plans but not our spirits. Kara and Michael decided to take their party to Jolly Pumpkin on main street and it was awesome! Their reception was at Weber’s Inn in the Atrium Ballroom and it was stellar. The toasts were spectacular, the music (By the Blue Water Kings Band ) was fabulous and the party was unstoppable! It was definitely a night to be remembered!
Thank you guys for choosing me to be a part of your day! I had a blast! ❤
run often, smile more!
