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.

Amy and Josh’s Capen House Wedding in Winter Park

Amy and Josh’s Intimate wedding at the Capen House in Winter Park was simply stunning. There are few backdrops as gorgeous as the beautiful lake osceola in Winter park. The lake, fluffy clouds and soft lighting created the perfect athmosphere for gorgeous wedding pictures. Amy wore a beautiful off white (peachy) colored wedding dress and Josh’s wore a Navy blue suite which complimented her dress perfectly. Her wedding train was super dreamy and long! Amy and Josh’s wedding theme traditional with a hint of rustic and vintage detailing. 

 

Capen house is a historic landmark in the middle of the Prestigeous Winter Park area. It is a boutique style venue with a rustic feel. The venue’s original architecture includes gorgeous 1885 heart pine floors throughout. The Capen house is the historic estate of sculptor Albin Polasek. The home is very inviting, bright and airy.

 

Their wedding ceremony was held in the backyard which is landscaped with lush greenery and flowers and nestled amongst some of Albin’s famous sculptures. The reception and dinner was held inside the Capen House.

 

I’m so in love with how their wedding images came out and excited to share them with you!

 

Lauren and Tom's Wedding at the Reserve

Meeting Lauren while photographing her client's wedding a year ago was such a joy. Lauren is an amazing wedding planner! Fast forward a year and I'm on a flight to Detroit to photograph her and Tom's wedding at The Reserve. in Bermingham  

Benjamin joined me as my second shooter and the day started at the beautiful Townsend Hotel for their getting ready pictures. The hotel is located adjacent to a beautiful park where we held their first look.

I loved working with Lauren and Tom. Lauren is the kindest perfectionist that you will meet. Her taste is elegant and it really shows in her selections for her own wedding decor. I loved the rich tones which complemented the classic venue. The Reserve was designed to reflect Meadow Brook Hall and other manors found in and around Birmingham and Bloomfield Hills. The hall features a gorgeous stone fireplace- perfect for family formals!

 

We want to wish Lauren and Tom huge congratulations on such a wonderful wedding!
