Dave & Sam's Adrian College Wedding

I can’t remember the last time I was at Adrian College, but it sure is cute! They got married in the school’s chapel which is about 10 times bigger that MSUs! The nasty weather held off, everybody had a blast and we got to watch two EMS ers tie the knot. They ended the evening with a sparkler send off into the night.

Jeff & Sarah!

Okay, so for those who have been reading the blog for a while... remember the really, really cool save the date card I posted a few months back? That was for Jeff and Sarah’s wedding. He’s an artist and handmade each of those pop-up cards. So I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a long time. Both of them are super enthusiastic about life, about photography and about having me as their photographer. They got ready at a dinky little church in Ferndale which also happened to be a super cute dinky little church. Really nice priest (and a woman at that!), Claire and I loved the ambiance the church provided. Everything went off without a hitch and we were able to get a couple of very Fall photos in at a park just down the street. I love Jeff’s friend’s van that was vinyled all over one side with the American Flag (that Jeff created, of course!). He (along with just about half the guests) is a fellow photographer. It was interesting to see how all these different professional photographers from lots of genres handled shooting the wedding along side of me. “Only” two others actually shoot weddings. I call them free back up! The reception was in Warren at St. Josaphat (used to be Saint Joseph fat until phat became hip), and the bride and groom provided lots of good food and entertainment with a very cool break dance floor show. Not only did the groom and some of his buddies take to the floor, so did one of the three year olds who showed a lot of promise! Jeff made wooden squirrels as their cake topper. I just loved all their personalizations and as a couple, they’re the sort of people who you feel like you’re one of their closest friends within about two minutes of meeting them!

Brian & Bridget's White House Wedding Chapel Wedding

Bridget and Brian get my super trouper award for indulging Brian's boss during their wedding reception at Andiamo's in Sterling Heights. He's Swiss German and wanted to share his wedding tradition by having the couple saw a log together with an old fashioned saw to show how things work better if you have team work. Nice thought... too bad he didn't bring a log, but a really big TREE. They worked and sweated through a very labor intensive 20 minutes before the finally got through it. I'm very impressed that they were able to stick with it (probably got some major blisters along the way too) and I'm thinking Brian's either due for a nice raise or at least a bonus!

Jonathan & Sarah's DAC Wedding

Sarah & Jonathan held their dream wedding in the shadow's of one of the Tiger's last games at the Detroit Athletic Club. Both are musically inclined and had their choir group sing at their wedding, which was a super treat since I LOVE choral music. Great location, fun and relaxed crowd.

Christine & John's St. Johns Inn Wedding

It just now dawned on me that John got married at St. John's! Okay, a little slow on the uptake, I'll agree! What I'll remember most about this wedding is how goofy the guys were. I think they were WAY more excited about taking photos before hand than I've ever seen any other group. I don't usually do many posed photos before hand for a large variety of reasons, but these guys requested it, we had plenty of time and the guys were hilarious! Check out my other blog at to see the rest of their antics! A lot of fun, great families.
