Heather & Steve Samples Wedding
Heather and I have been internet friends for many years so when Steve proposed to her after an 8 year courtship, I was OVER THE MOON that they entrusted in me to document their biggest day ever! It was so fun for me to occasionally check in with Heather on her wedding planning, seeing her beautiful gown, hearing about the secrets (see dinosaur entrance into the reception) and just see their happiness bubble over the top!
I flew up to Detroit the night before the wedding and saw the couple exchange gifts the night before (which was incredibly fun, honestly!!). It was incredibly cute and funny to see the gifts they each gave. It was obvious how much thought they put into the gifts and the sweet cards they made for each other 🙂
Saturday morning rolled around and though the forecast was rain with a side of rain, we were blessed with a mostly overcast day which allowed us to take advantage of the beautiful scenery The Henry Ford venue offered. Steve and the guys wanted photos in the auto museum which I happily obliged, the trains and vintage cars added a cool and masculine touch to their photos! While the girls got to utilize the Ginger Meyer Gardens for their photos, it was full of pretty florals, vines and stonework that had my heart going pitter patter!
The wedding took place in Lovett Hall, a beautiful all white area with gorgeous touches of their white florals and greenery… to say it was heavenly is an understatement. They decided not to do a first look but embrace the moment she walks down the aisle, so of course I had my eyes on Steve when he saw her. Yup.. worth it! He was smiling and tearing up and even giggling. MELT MY DANG OL’ HEART!!!! Their ceremony went perfectly and their first kiss turned into a couple first kisses because why not!?
The rest of the evening was filled with so many friends and family moments, dancing, cake cutting, running around in a dinosaur suit and sipping champagne on the balcony. Ahhh, it was just so fun! So please check out the photos below! xoxo
