Suburban Collection Showplace Wedding
The bridal suite was a buzz of excitement and nervousness for the day ahead. The girls were getting their hair did and makeup done and laughing and talking about the day to come. Kristi and Nick were getting married and everyone was excited. Including me. From the first time I met them I knew I wanted to be the one to document their wedding day story. I fell in love with them during their engagement session and how genuine they were towards each other.
When I was looking around for a place to photograph the dress I kept thinking about the ball room where Kristi and Nicks parents had planned a surprise gift to decorate the ceiling and backdrop for them. I had to bring the dress there to photograph it before the day. There it was, centered on the dance floor, where hours later it would be worn by Kristi and dancing with her groom for the first time as husband and wife.
The ceremony was at St Joseph Church in South Lyon. Before the wedding we had enough time for Kristi and Nick to exchange gifts without seeing each other. Moments later I was up at the alter witnessing Nick see his bride for the first time. The smile on his face…….wow he was happy.
After the ceremony and the family formals I brought the bridal party to Kensington park for some portraits and fun on the swing set.
The reception was a beautifuly decorated room at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi. We danced…… A lot.
I didn’t want to leave. At the end of the evening I sat in my car with a smile and thought, “wow I really love this job.” Thank you Nick and Kristi for having me as your wedding photographer. It was a complete honor. The images below are just part of the story that was captured.
