The day may have been gloomy for this wedding, but this couple was not! Koiya and Brian had a beautiful and fabulous October wedding. Their reception, held at Sycamore Hills, was beautiful! We love this venue with its open dance floor and large windows surrounding the whole room! And the best part of the day was photographing at the Sterling Heights Fire Station where Brian works! It was such a cute location for these two!
To begin the day, Koiya got ready with her bridal party at Hyatt Place Hotel in Utica. Her mom and sister were by her side the whole time helping her get all her details in place. Even her adorable Goddaughter was there! It got a little crazy with the whole bridal party in one room, but Koiya stayed calm and collected the whole time! She ROCKED! Brian got ready at their home in Macomb. He had a relaxed time getting ready with all his groomsmen. We even had a chance to snap a couple photos of him and his super cute pooches!
After everyone was done getting fabulous we headed over to the church. Their ceremony was held at St. Clement of Rome Catholic Church in Romeo, Michigan. It was a beautiful ceremony filled with lots of love and emotion. It was SO precious to witness! When it was over, we were off to the reception hall!
The reception at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Macomb turned out to be the perfect location for the day! While the wedding day was beautiful, the weather was not! The awning into the building provided the perfect cover from the rain while we photographed the fun bridal party! This bridal party was one of the funnest I’ve photographed and you could tell they were having a blast all day! After the photos we all hopped on the bus to head to our next destination!
We arrived at the fire station and I was getting SO excited to photograph these two! It was a first for me, so I was super pumped! Since Brian is a fireman this was a significant location for them and it made for some pretty adorable photos! Koiya and Brian looked freaking awesome in front of the big red fire truck! TOO cute! Then we were back on the bus to go back to the reception! While the bus consisted of lots of laughter and fun, there was one really precious and special moment. Brian played a special song and it made Koiya tear up. It was so sweet!
At the reception, the love and laughter continued! The reception was beautifully decorated and Elite Entertainment did a great job as DJ for the evening. The guests enjoyed the dance floor but they also had fun in the photobooth provided by Infinity Photobooth. It was a super fun reception and their adorable dogs even made a brief appearance! We left the happy on the dance floor, literately!
Here is a preview of Koiya and Brian’s amazing day!
