Johnny and Tara are Married!

So when you own a hop farm and someone contacts you about shooting a wedding at THEIR hop farm… it feels like the universe is giving you a smile. 🙂 Johnny and Tara own Grey’s Hops, and it was pretty awesome stepping onto their beautiful farm and seeing it all set up for the ceremony.

An intimate backyard ceremony with closest friends and family was the perfect celebration of love for these two. Tara was glowing all day, for more than one reason! And her long, flowing gown caught the sun just right, and made for some amazing portraits.  The way Johnny lights up around his bride was so sweet and touching, she is the center of his world and that was so very obvious when watching them together. That little smile they both get, whenever they touch the baby bump… it was such a pleasure to work with such fun, genuine, and loving people. Here’s some favorites from the day…

Congratulations to Tara and Johnny, and your ‘hoppy’ future together!

Megan & Thomas ~ Ann Arbor Engagement Session

Megan and Thomas met at the University of Michigan, so we took a trip to campus for their engagement session. Michigan spring is short but sweet, and we were lucky so many flowers were blooming! U of M has so many gorgeous spaces to pick from, so we just started wandering around… Ann Arbor,Engagment Session,

A sweet snuggle on a bench, this is one of my favorites!

We wandered around the park, stopping to smell the flowers and steal some kisses.

Found the cutest spaces tucked around, hidden from the casual eye. The campus is absolutely beautiful, but Thomas only had eyes for Megan. I love how they look at each other, the smiles are instant and genuine. So sweet!

They are so into each other and affectionate, which makes my job so much more fun!

We headed to the law quad where we danced and snuggled some more among the stunning architecture.

They laugh so easily together, you can’t help but smile around them.

It was only appropriate that we go to the place that they met and get out on that court! A great finish to the session, it was such a fun day walking around the school and strolling down memory lane.

What to wear while getting ready for your Michigan wedding

Michigan High School Senior Portraits

Want your perfect pictures of you and your girls getting ready for the big day? One of the first things I recommend thinking about is your comfort. It’s going to be a long day, and believe me you don’t want to start your day wearing uncomfortable clothes. Can you imagine sitting for hours in hair and make-up wearing jeans that are too tight? No thank you and ps – feeling uncomfortable will show in your pictures. You’ll never regret looking comfortable in your prep pictures. Here’s a few ideas to help you be comfortable and still look cute!

Comfortable can definitely be cute! The thing to consider is that you want something you can easily take off without disturbing your hair or smudging your makeup. Robes, button-down shirts and tank-tops are some great ideas that our previous brides wore to keep the morning low-stress and picture perfect!

Make sure to check out our Pinterest board for more inspiration on what to wear.

Robes are often a great choice. They’re cute, comfortable, and champagne poppin’ easy to move around in. Plus they are easy to get out of without messing your hair and make-up.

Button-down shirts are another great option.  Especially when planning a Michigan wedding. Layering a button down with a tank top will help transition from those chilly mornings to the hot beautiful days.

Patrick and Jessica ~ Packard Proving Grounds Wedding

Patrick and Jessica were married earlier this month on a Michigan Spring day that doesn’t get much better. They love the industrial history of Michigan, and really wanted to capture that in their wedding and they could not have picked a better wedding venue than the historic Packard Proving Grounds  to bring that flavor to their big day!

I cannot even tell you how may times I had tears in my eyes that day. From the moment Jessica’s dad sees her for the first time, Patrick and his mom’s faces when Jessica made her way down the aisle… To their vows, and even during the first dances. Their planner caught me a few times while Jessica was dancing with her dad. 🙂

These two are so cute together it’s endearing and we had so much fun working with them (and our favorite vendors!). Congratulations Jessica & Patrick!

Vendor Spotlight: Twigs & Branches Floral

In my nearly 10 years of being in the wedding industry there are some people that I just click with (pun totally intended). Some vendors are consistently top notch – always on their A-game, leaders in industry trends, always willing to push their creative boundaries and give their all to clients. All the while playing nicely with other vendors. Kevin Miller with Twigs & Branches Floral is one of those vendors. Twigs & Branches is a full event design company that strives to be out of the box and bring their clients visions to life. Kevin and his team have vision and a sharp creative intuition, but more importantly, his execution is flawless.

We asked Kevin to answer a few questions so we could feature him on our blog.

Tell us, why do you do what you do?

I love the creative outlet.  I have a passion for floral and design.  Seeing our clients reactions to an event is probably the most rewarding part.

Tell me some of your favorites about weddings.

I love how weddings have become so creative.  Even in the last 9 years I have been in business it has changed dramatically.  I love that it just keeps getting better every year.  Keep the designs coming!

What sets you apart?

I feel like our company strives to be out of the box for our clients.  We like to take their vision maybe add a little spin to it and make it their own.

Who is your ideal client?

My ideal client would be someone who lets me let loose on the event.  I do love a little direction of course to keep the client involved.  Once I have received that, let me do my thing!

What are your favorite wedding trends right now?

I am loving that color is coming back!  Bold and creative color combinations.

Tell us about your most memorable and fun wedding/event. Or just a favorite memory.

I feel like I have so many!!  Wether it is working with all my favorite vendors on a beautiful day.  The laughs and fun we have!  I also love seeing our clients reactions walking into the space we have designed or receiving their floral arrangements.

Tell us one thing we might not otherwise know about you.

I love to do handstands!  Anytime I go to a new city or country I take a pictures of me doing a handstand wherever I am at!  For example, when I went to China I took a picture of me doing a handstand on the Great Wall of China!

How can you not love this guy? Kevin it’s been so awesome getting to know you and growing our businesses together. Keep being awesome you.
