Alycia and Eric are married!

Eric and Alycia’s wedding day was grey and chilly… a perfect backdrop for capturing the blazing autumn colors and the snuggling that goes on when a groom tries to keep his bride warm! Alycia and her ladies held strong against the biting wind, and I was beyond impressed at how they gritted their teeth and smiled through the goosebumps. Pure Michigan!

It was worth it though, their outdoor portraits were so gorgeous. After the ceremony at St. Peter’s Macomb Lutheran Church, the wedding party boarded the big blue bus for some outside shots and from there it was off to Zuccaro’s for the reception. Alycia and Eric put a lot of DIY work into bringing their wedding vision to life, and it was  stunning! Copper, navy blue, succulents and greenery… with lots of shimmer and candlelight. Very autumn, very classy, and very romantic.

Alycia was bridal perfection, with her long, flowing veil and the intricate lacework on her dress. Her jewelry added a touch of sparkle, but the dazzling smile she wore all night was the only accessory she really needed!  While we all know DJ Derek Hall can keep the party going, I’ve never seen a couple have so much fun together on the dance floor, as you’ll see at the the bottom of the post. It was such a joy working with these two, so laid-back, fun and completely smitten with each other. Here’s some favorites from the day… 

I really need to point out how amazing it was that I had three Clicking Through Life brides in the same wedding! Look at these gorgeous ladies, I love this job!

Congratulations, Alycia and Eric!

Nicole and Norman are married!

Nicole and Norman had classic Michigan fall weather – wait five minutes, and it will change! We were dodging rain drops on the way to church, but nothing could wipe the that smile off Nicole’s face. She was laughing and beaming with her bridesmaids, so excited that the big day was finally here. Her blush and ivory ballgown was so beautifully detailed with lace and beading, and those SHOES!  Speaking of excited… Norman’s face when he saw his gorgeous bride coming down the aisle is one of my favorite groom reactions ever! Who can blame him? Nicole was an absolutely stunning bride, and when she smiles at him you can see the stars in his eyes. Thankfully, Mother Nature was kind enough to allow us a window of time after the ceremony with no rain and moody skies, perfect for some portraits on a rooftop! We explored a few places in downtown Detroit before heading back to the Polish Cultural Center for their reception. A live band AND some good Polish food? Yes please! The dance floor stayed packed all night and it was a great celebration for the happy couple. Wszystkiego najlepszego! (All the best!)

 

Congratulations, Nicole and Norman!

Amber and Jason are Engaged!

Amber and Jason wanted their engagement session to reflect things that were really important to them – Jason’s job as the Ira fire chief, time spent together out in nature, and of course, Little League with their kids! We spent a chilly fall afternoon exploring the fire station and the adjoining fields, and these two couldn’t stop smiling and laughing with each other. The poses came naturally as Jason wrapped Amber up in his arms to keep her warm! Can’t wait to see these two again this summer, June can’t get here soon enough!

Art Party 2017 at the Anton Art Center

Had a blast at the Art Party this year in Mt. Clemens! The Anton Art Center hosts Art Party as their main fundraiser every year, and it was a great time. Over 30 local restaurants participated, and as much as we tried to taste it all, it wasn’t in the cards. I’m not even sure if it was humanly possible. Everything was fantastic though, shout out to El Charros especially, that sangria is dangerously delicious. There was a silent auction, raffles, live art demonstrations, and a special presentation of a Gloria Goedekke print to Public Works Commissioner Candice S. Miller for her ongoing support of the arts.  The dueling pianos were so much fun, people couldn’t help but dance! This year the Art Party broke their previous record for fundraising, and the event raised almost $40,000 to further their mission of bringing art programming and opportunities to the community. Definitely a good night out for a great cause, and we’re always up for supporting the arts! Here’s some favorite shots from the night…

Sebastion turns two!

Sebastion took a wander around the gardens for his birthday portraits… and while the balloons were super fun, they weren’t nearly as much fun as being in mom’s arms. 🙂 That smile! Aly is an awesome photographer, one of my former brides AND one of my favorite people on the planet, and it’s always fantastic to see her. Some favorites from the day…
