Stephanie + Jarrett, Manchester and Chelsea Michigan Wedding

Here’s a great wedding all the way from the Great Lakes State. Stephanie and Jarrett, both natives of the Michigan, met in college where they eventually decided to move to Chicago. Soon after, Jarrett proposed to Stephanie during a vacation in Guatemala. They both wanted to get married back home where they met.

The wedding ceremony was held at a church in Manchester, a small town south of Stephanie’s hometown, Chelsea. It is a nice historic church nestled in the middle of an old German town. After the ceremony, we took some photos outside the minister’s lovely house next to the church. We then drove back to Chelsea where the reception was being held. The big tent was situated in Stephanie’s enormous front yard. Being from Houston, I haven’t seen a more beautifully manicured piece of land fenced by perfectly aligned pine trees! I was impressed by their laid-back but very elegant front yard reception.

After the introductions, first dance, cake and bouquet rituals, everyone got on the dance floor. And boy do these guys know how to have fun. The festivities went on into the evening when the DJ finally shut it down. About 10 minutes later, I heard the microphone make that feedback noise and thumping “mic test” sound. Kevin, (the most awesome DJ I ever worked it) announced “Ladies and gentlemen, the afterparty has started.” And the music just kept going! Wow, I left with the newlyweds and their close friends still on the dance floor. Shooting for 16 hours straight, I was exhausted. But, I had a smile on my face. Stephanie and Jarrett just had their most memorable day, and I was gonna be the first to see all the awesome pictures.

Stephanie, Jarrett, my big congrats to both of you and I wish you all the best! ~Angel

Little note to Michigan brides: I have family in Chelsea, MI. If you are getting married anywhere near here, I can photograph your wedding with a substantial discount on travel costs! :)

Manchester, Michigan Wedding Preview

I’ll say it – I am weak and powerless. I cannot help but post my favorite picture so far from the Michigan wedding I did a couple weeks ago. A preview of what’s to come. This photo says it all. Rings on their fingers, and the smiles that say “we did it!”

Congratulations, Stephanie and Jarrett!

Ashley + Matt, Countryside Engagement

This was the quickest processing turnaround I’ve done in a while. That’s because Ashley is a very good friend of mine. And my good friend is getting married! Ashley and I went to college together and back then, I was dreaming up being a wedding photographer. She told me someday when she gets married she would have me photograph her wedding. I remember that conversation like it was yesterday. Fast-forward to grown-up life when my fiance and I were eating dinner I saw Ashley who then introduced me to Matt – and boom there you go. Now, I’m shooting their engagement photos! I couldn’t be more happy for both of them. And Matt, ever the awesome guy brought the props for the e-session and came up with a bunch of great suggestions. Ashley? Natural supermodel.

Anyway, I really thought it was gonna be hawwwt – this Texas weather. But, it cooled down and our rustic-themed, countryside session was actually quite pleasant. I love these pictures and I’m sure Ashley and Matt are gonna love them, too. Watch out for their wedding photos this September. Congrats guys!

yvette + alex, houston trevisio wedding

The famous Texas Medical Center is a massive cluster of world-renowned hospitals and is at the forefront of research and development in modern medicine. Within this fascinating complex of science and technology sits a really nice restaurant called the Trevisio. It can be found in the John P. McGovern Texas Medical Center Commons Building

So there, I showed up for Yvette and Alex’s wedding. The Trevisio is easily one of the nicest venues I’ve photographed. One side of this entire venue featured floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the urban life outside. Pair that up with a mesmerizing glass waterfall behind a very large bar and you’re set for a great night in the city. Yvette, taking one of the private rooms to get ready, was surrounded by loving friends and family where we took some great shots. Alex looked calm and sharp as he waited outside the room where the ceremony was to be held.

After the intimate wedding ceremony the party moved to the restaurant floor. The couple’s guests were welcomed with cocktails as they congratulated the newlyweds. The food was excellent! And yes, the cake was delicious. After that was some awesome dancing and celebrating with great friends and family. The fun went on through the night. What a great wedding!
