Uma and Nandini's Indian Wedding in Detroit, MI

I boarded a plane to head to Detroit to photograph Uma and Nandini's wedding when they announced on the speakers that is was going to be a bumpy ride! And boy was it a terrible flight. I thanked God when we landed and swore that I will drive to the next wedding, although I'm pretty sure that won't happen. But the flight quickly faded into a memory as the excitement of having the honor of photographing a beautiful friends wedding kicked in- Uma and her now husband Nandini. Uma is a fearless preacher and sincere friend who is liked by so many. The wedding was packed with family and friends literally from all over the world! From England to Africa and to iIndia- you name it and someone probably flew in from there. The most magical things is that the entire wedding was coordinated by her friends and Family! Uma showed some serious trust in the process, and the wedding came out beautifully. The wedding took place in the Ann Arbor Marriott at Eagle Crest. I loved that the ceremony site was situated amongst lush greenery including tall pine trees and open golf fields which was perfect for formals. Their Color scheme was Pink, Red and Gold with beautiful rose floral arrangements draping the mandap and reception hall.

 

Check out the beautiful Ceremony stage! We want to wish Nandini and Uma an amazing journey together as husband and wife

Sheerin and Naren's Romantic Indian Wedding at Holy Trinity Church Reception Center

Sheerin and Naren's wedding was absolutely stunning. The vibrant Hindu ceremony started before the break of dawn followed by a reception in the evening.  For their reception, Sheering chose a stunning gold embroidered maroon velvet lehenga skirt paired with a matching choli embellished with a gorgeous pink and gold dupatta. Naren wore a tuxedo with a matching bow.  I'm in love with their images and even more in love with them as a couple. They are truly the sweetest people that you will meet! The Trinity Church reception center was transformed into the most stunning space thanks to event designers at Dreams to Reality and their wedding planners with Anna Christine Events. The wedding was a feast for the eyes with an amazing reception to top it off. It took us one whole hour to photograph all of their wedding details from both the ceremony and reception. The festivities and choreographies performed during the reception kept the couple and guest entertained until the very end before being driven away in a blue antique Rolls Royce. I'm beyond excited to share their images today! I also want to wish Sheerin a very happy birthday- this sneak peel could not come at a better day! Please send all of your blessings to the lovely couple!

Kayli and William's Classic Southern Charm Wedding at Venue 1902 (Preservation hall)

Kayli and William's Classic Southern Charm Wedding at Venue 1902 (Preservation hall)

I'm so excited to share images from Kayli and William's beautiful Wedding which I had the honor of photographing 4 weeks ago.

I had never shot a wedding at their fairly new wedding venue, Venue 1902, before but had heard some great things about the space from other industry vendors.

Kayli and William's had a traditional classic wedding with a color scheme of black, white and Gold detailing. They also added a touch of Red and Pink roses amidst their white floral arrangements which were put together by the team at Country club flowers. 

Venue 1902 is a Southern Style venue with historic and rustic detailing- being the oldest school on Sandford, there is no lack of historic feels at the venue, adding to its charm.

Kayli and William are so fun to be around, kind hearted and down to earth. From our fun engagement session in their neighborhood to their wedding day and beyond, Its been my pleasure watching their love firsthand and seeing what a beautiful pair they make. I would like to thank the amazing vendors who worked so hard at making their wedding day so perfect.

Here is their sneak peek!

Emily and Thomas Southern Charm Wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House

I always love seeing when two best friends fall madly in love with each other. 

 

When Emily and Thomas look at each other, you know that there is an inner dialogue that only they know the language for. They Fell in love during summer camp and Thomas later proposed during an evening dinner joined by family.

After months of planning their wedding day with the loving help of Emily's beautiful mother Judy and their talented wedding planner Stephanie from Swanky I do's, I have to say that the wedding was simply stunning. There were lots of little meaningful details throughout the space such as family heirlooms. The ceremony space at Cypress Grove Estate house looks over lake Jessamine and was gorgeously decorated with flowers designed by Flowers by Lesley.

Some of my favourite details of the wedding include:

The bridal parties faux fur shawls to keep them warm

A table of family wedding pictures as you entered the house

a blanket station at the ceremony site to keep guest warms as the weather was a little chilly 

a amazing band called Bay King Band's performing during the reception and who got everybody dancing right away

I would like to take a moment to thank them both for allowing me to capture such a special day for them. Congratulations Emily and Thomas on your new venture as husband and wife!

Here is their sneak peek.
