I can’t say enough about Heather Saunders.  She’s simply amazing.  I truly believe in chemistry with your wedding vendors and as soon as I met Heather in her quaint little Royal Oak, Mich., studio I KNEW she was the ONE.  It was like knowing which wedding dress was THE ONE when you tried it on!  She just FIT! 

She is incredibly talented.  Geniune.  Fun.  And we LOVE LOVE LOVE her.

I believe in True Love.  I believe it’s possible to fall in love with the same person over and over again. 

I believe you need to have good times and bad times.   I believe you have to fail at some things to understand how to suceed at other things.

I believe in taking the time to dance with your partner in your living room on a week night for no reason at all.  

I believe in having time away from one another.  I believe in making time for each other, even when it seems impossible.

I believe in tears of joy.  And, I believe in lifelong love.  I don’t believe it to be easy.  But I believe it’s possible if you both believe it to be possible. 

I believe getting married to an incredible man has turned me into a teary-eyed, joyous wreck.

Introducing… Amy and Steve

Amy and Steve met, fell in love, and then got engaged in downtown Detroit.   The engagement included an elaborate scheme that had Amy thinking she was having dinner with Tiger’s head coach Jim Leyland.  So, it only made sense when planning their wedding to have it Detroit.  They are both huge supporters of downtown and wanted their friends and family to share in the love and pride they have for a city some people have a not-so-favorable opinion of… They think it’s a big mission accomplished! 

Amy and Steve had their ceremony at the amazingly beautiful Old St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greektown.  After they said I DO, the couple went back to the place where it all began… an old time Detroit favorite…  Garden Bowl , America’s oldest active bowling alley, which is located inside the Majestic Cafe on Woodward Avenue for some fun shots. 

Before heading to the Roostertail for the reception, Amy and Steve stopped by at their favorite local watering hole, Foran’s Grand Trunk Pub at Woodward and Congress, for some local Michigan MIcrobrews. 

Amy and Steve incorporated the Detroit skyline into their save the dates, wedding invitations and menus which was inspired by the view from the room at the Roostertail.  Giving proper recognition to Detroit’s historical music scene, Amy and Steve asked that only Motown music be played during cocktails and dinner and the bridal party entered the room to Sam Roberts Band’s “Detroit ‘67.”

I don’t know two other people who love Detroit more than Bob and Sara.  So, it’s fitting that they are my first real Detroit wedding couple. 

Bob took Sara to the Tiger’s game on their first date… and about a year or so later, he proposed to her at Comerica Park.  They love the Tiger’s, love the City, and love each other.  They were married downtown and had their reception at the Greektown Casino-Hotel.  What a beautiful celebration!  From an old English “D” ice sculpture and groom’s cake (D, not only represents Detroit, but Bob and Sara’s last initial), to props on the dance floor, they got down in the D!

It was a perfect day and a stellar party.   All images are from J.S Photography.  Here are some of my favorites.  Enjoy.
