From the Photographers: “Anna and Josh were married at the historic Grosse Pointe Academy in Grosse Pointe Farms, MI. Anna’s creativity and DIY spirit showed through in everything, from the personalized Jones Soda bottles to the bouquet she made of vintage brooches that she collected at antique stores and flea markets over the past year. Their tandem Schwinns were adorable- vintage green and blue bicycles built for two! The theme carried through to their cake topper and cute little charms on their favors. All of the details were colorful and fun, and really represented the couple’s unique style. The fantastic Sun Messengers played in the tent outside the Academy and had the whole crowd dancing all afternoon. Anna’s brother John played a solo of Dave Matthews song You & Me. The cake was delicious- made by Royal Oak’s Pronto! Restaurant. Everyone had a ball, and even the storm that came through later that afternoon didn’t get anybody down- Anna & Josh had a wonderful day and we are so happy we got to share it with them!” ~Tracy and Riva
Front the Photographer: “Kim and Kevin first saw eachother at a cafe in Northville- the rest of the story is too long to share here. Kevin proposed to Kim on their 10th anniversary on a beautiful secluded beach in Hawaii after a casual picnic. It was just the beginning of their charming romance! There is so much I ADORE about this wedding that looks like it is from the pages of the best in wedding magazines. From happy guests to gorgeous details, this wedding is everything a romantic girl dreams her wedding would be! Inspired by the Cotswolds of England, Kim and Kevin chose Meadowbrook Hall on the Campus of Oakland University in Rochester Hills, MI to exchange their vows. With rolling hills, gorgeous gardens, and a classic mansion it was the perfect location to fulfill their vision. The Parsonage created amazing centerpieces and bouquets that continued the theme of garden elegance throughout the event. The bridesmaids were stylish in their JCrew dresses and perfectly paired with the pashmina’s Kim gave each as a gift. The entire event was beautifully classic with just a hint of modern romance. Kim and Kevin danced the night away with a live orchestra band (Rhythm Society Orchestra) and everyone had an amazing, magical evening! Desserts were served in the mansion and it was an amazing candlelight spread in addition to their gorgeous cake. Everything about this wedding was perfection.” -Jennifer Grant
This couple’s photo session makes me smile! This couple has so much love and affection towards each other, and it shows in these photographs. Plus, when you can find a location as beautiful as this one, it adds to the amazing-ness. Thanks to Summer Jean Photography for sharing!
From the Photographer: “Karin and Jason got married just a few doors down from Karin’s family summer cottage – where she spent a quiet morning getting ready & relaxing with friends. This stunning couple chose a location that was near & dear to their hearts, and were surrounded by so many loved ones. Everything was personal, and reflected the fantastic couple they are – when the groom begs you to stay and have fun with them – you know they are just a solid couple, and very much in love. The details were fantastic, and perfectly blended with the brilliant blues & sandy beach that surrounded them.” -Lizzie Photo
We are extremely excited to share this wedding. Mostly because Amy Carroll’s photography is amazing, but also because this wedding is filled with perfect details great for inspiration. One of the best parts of the entire thing was the bride’s two pairs of shoes! White for the ceremony, and blue Badgley Mischka heels (a gift from a very generous friend!).
From the Photography: “First of all, Sara and Trevor have great vision and style and this wedding…definitely ranks high on my list of favorites for amazing weddings. Their ceremony…a traditional catholic ceremony in Ann Arbor…perfect in every way. Afterward heading to U of M’s campus for some group shots but then…off to the very rustically adorable Misty Farms. A newer venue complete with beautiful barns, chickens (much to my delight and more on that below!), horses and immaculate grounds. Even after the threat of rain had everyone scurrying to make the outdoor cocktail hour an indoor affair, the planner didn’t miss a beat. Sara and Trevor have a shared sense of humor and love for each other that I found refreshing and fun to work with. I was more than delighted that I had the honor of capturing this day, of being part of the fun, and seeing their vision come together.” -Amy Carroll Photography
