André & Jen's Detroit Yacht Wedding

I can’t say enough of how much I love this couple! Seeing these two surrounded, supported, and celebrated by their family and friends gave me goosebumps! They make each other laugh so much and have stuck together through thick and thin. Before I even knew how amazing their day was going to be, I just knew I had to be a part of it.

Their beautiful day began at the Greektown Casino Hotel where they had their first look and hopped in a limo to catch the soft cloud covered light surrounding Detroit’s Belle Isle. It is simply gorgeous there! Following their sunny ceremony on the dock everyone boarded the yacht and set sail for the Ambassador bridge.

The captain and crew for the Infinity & Ovation Yacht Charter were absolutely wonderful! The whole party flowed seamlessly and the Captain even let Jen and André steer the boat! Their day was so much fun! Everyone danced and the party ended with everyone surrounding the couple, dancing with drinks in hand, all singing the words together!

Congratulations André and Jen! You are so wonderful together! It was a true joy to celebrating you with your amazing family and friends! Wishing you lots and lots of love! ~Lindsay

Chris & Jessica's Black Barn Vineyard Wedding

Chris and Jessica's day was blessed with sunshine, family and friends from all over the states, and so much to entertain! It was the perfect day!

When we arrived the Barn was absolutely stunning and the girls were all dressed in matching flannel shirts.!They were so cute laughing, getting emotional, and doting all over Jessica. It was adorable to see how close they all were! 

Growing up their families attended church together and it was at this very church where they first met each other. So prior to the ceremony, tucked away without seeing each other they took a moment to pray. And as guests were seated upstairs you could feel the excitement and joy of the two families ready to come together. 

At Black Barn Vineyard (BBV) everywhere we we went was picturesque! While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party explored the grounds and we made our way into the vineyards. 

Dinner was so delicious! The speeches were hilarious (including the best man's who couldn't be there but gave his via live video chat courtesy of the DJ), everyone enjoyed the sunset while playing lawn games, and talked into the night on the open bar patio. As the sky grew dark everyone filled the dance floor and the photo booth.

And before anyone could get tired (With exception of the little people), the S'more Bar was lit and everyone enjoyed sweet treats from The Oak Tree Lounge. Everyone stayed until the end of the night when it was time to say farewell and Chris and Jessica ran off into a flurry of bubbles to their honeymoon!  

Chris & Jess, it was such an honor to be a part of capturing your day!  You are truly blessed with so much love surrounding you and I'm so glad to know that you have God as your center. Much love and God bless you in your new life together! 

And last but not least, THANK YOUS!

Sweet Little Family

So excited to share favorites from last Sunday's session with the Haroff family! Their love for each other is so sweet! Their youngest just turned two and he is an absolutely precious wide eyed explorer. And their oldest is so caring, kind, and patient. I love these guys! Aren't they adorable?!
