Alex and Alex’s wedding was a feast of color and a study in elegance. From the bright pop of pink and green in Alexandra’s bouquet to her amazing and festive reception, she went bold all the way. The day was filled with excitement, big smiles, and lots of laughter. I started the day at Alexandra’s mom’s house in Grosse Pointe where Alex’s dress was magnificently displayed in the living room. Meanwhile, Andy was with our groom as he prepared for their wedding at St. Paul on the Lake.
I LOVE the expressions in these processional shots. Especially Alexandra’s dad.
Alexandra’s parents were also married at St. Paul on the Lake and have a portrait in their home from in front of the church, so we had to be sure to get a similar shot to add to their family’s history. From the church, we headed downtown for some more portraits with the bridal party before going to the reception.
This shot below cracked me up. It’s not the type of image I normally blog, but I love the spontaneity of this moment. It’s not uncommon to run into other brides when we are hitting landmark sites on a Saturday. (One previous time we were at the Fox there was, no kidding, FIVE other bridal parties there at the same time for photos!) But usually the brides never get close enough to do anything other than shout “congratulations” at each other from a distance. A bridal high-five in the middle of Woodward? That’s pretty rad!
The reception was held at Lakeland Banquet & Event Centre in St. Clair Shores. The room was completely transformed with up-lights and accent lighting, bathing the entire room in a pink glow. It was really a stunning reception, and a lot of fun to photograph!
I’m still catching up on my wedding blogging, but I have to say, it’s been such fun going back and looking at these images from our earlier events. I still have a LOT more weddings to get through, so stay tuned! Big thanks to Alex + Alex for letting us be a part of your amazing wedding. :)
