Romance can sometimes bloom in the most unlikely of places – like your dissection lab during your first year in dental school. Such was the case for Elizabeth and Sam, who found themselves a little over four years later, again standing across from each other….except this time they were reciting vows. Funny how things work out like that sometimes, eh?
We began the day at Tresses in the Village and then on to Elizabeth’s house. These are some of my favorite bride prep images all year. The morning was full of smiles and laughter and everyone in the house was brimming with excitement. I witnessed so many touching moments between Elizabeth and her mom and sister. This is another long blog post, so get ready!
The handsome groom:
Gorgeous, summery bouquet from Thrifty Florist. They knocked it out of the park again.
Elizabeth’s sister did her make-up in a tiny bathroom with amazing light. Love these shots.
Grandma’s ring made a fitting “something blue”.
We took a trolly to St. Paul’s on the Lake. How adorable is this girl?
Down the aisle! That’s one proud papa right there!
It’s recessional images like this that make me love my job.
From St. Paul’s on the Lake, we headed over the the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club for the reception. I should mention that the weather was so wonderful this day….this whole wedding was storybook perfect.
These dentists were kind enough to include a subtle reminder to brush!
Elizabeth and Sam had the most entertaining guests…..we got so many great candids of everyone having a wonderful time. It was hard to narrow it down to just a few images to show – but the guy below definitely earned the right to be in this post. :)
We snuck outside just after sunset for a few more shots outside the Yacht Club.
Elizabeth & Sam, THANK YOU. We had such a wonderful time working with you and we are thrilled you’re living just a few blocks away now. Howdy neighbors! We hope to see you again soon!
