My darling LBBers, you’ll definitely be happy you tuned in on this lovely Autumnal Saturday. Because boy, oh boy, do we have a special wedding for you to enjoy all weekend long. Epic Motion sent over the wedding trailer from this Michigan wedding, and their work had us begging for more. Cue the amazing images, from our favorites over at Jess + Nate Studios, of this fairy tale affair, planned and designed by the fabulous Flourish Event Design. We were all head over heels. And now it’s you’re turn to fall in love. So check out the stunning wedding (and click here for the full image gallery) and then enjoy the fabulous highlights from Epic Motion!
And after that decadent warm up, we’ve got the amazing highlight film from Epic Motion. Enjoy!
Nearly a decade ago, our story began. John and I met in high school through our mutual group of friends. Even though we were always with the same group of people during the four years of high school it took three years for John to get the courage to ask me on a date (I’m pretty sure this started his procrastination with the other milestones him and I have shared together). It was completely worth the wait because after our first date to the annual Schultz firework extravaganza, John and I have been together ever since. John and I have essentially watched and helped each other grow into the people we are today. We are each other’s person and I’m thankful (even after waiting nearly a decade) that we can now begin a new chapter together.
When John and I started planning our wedding we decided we wanted to go a route that we haven’t seen before. I am what John describes as old fashion, simple, timeless, and romantic. We wanted to try to capture as many of those characteristics as possible. When our wedding planner, Lindsey Nartker, of Flourish Event Design, got hold of what we wanted she immediately suggested The Colony Club in Detroit Michigan. Once we saw it we were sold. The antique look of the venue was perfect. It has all our characteristics tied fabulously into one venue. Once we determined our venue the rest just fell into place. We decided to keep with gold, white, and blush pink colors to help keep the wedding soft and elegant.
From the beginning or our wedding day to the end everything was perfect, a fairy tale almost. The venue was everything we had worked so hard to create. It was amazing. We find it difficult to pick our most vivid memory. If we had to choose just one moment, we both would say our first look! A time where the world stopped and it was just John and I. We shared such a special moment right there in the middle of Detroit. With such awesome photography and videography that one moment will be remembered forever. By far a day that John and I will remember forever.
