Purely Wedding: Michael & Kara

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! View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedWhen 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! View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedKara’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. View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedThey got married at the beautiful St. Thomas Parish in Ann Arbor!View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedTheir flowers were absolutely perfect by the amazing Maureen’s Designs in Saline.  I am such a sucker for succulents! View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedTheir exit was with lavender which made for a fun and scented afternoon 🙂 View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedKara really wanted some pictures downtown with the theaters and we were traffic stoppers!  View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedThis tree was *MAGICAL* View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedLike seriously, is this real life?View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedThis group was SO much fun!View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedAnd they battled the drizzle with grace, good humor and FUN! ❤ View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldeda beautiful ‘traditional’ shot featuring a gorgeous couple and stunning architecture.  #winning  View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedSo 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! View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedTheir reception was at Weber’s Inn in the Atrium Ballroom and it was stellar.  View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedThe 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!View More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfieldedView More: http://amandamaephotography.pass.us/karagetsfielded
