This wonderful Lovett Hall summer wedding is near and dear to my heart. Not only are Katie and Matt extremely awesome people and I absolutely loved documenting their day, but I also worked alongside Amanda when we photographed her sister Rachel’s wedding in 2015. It was great to see the family again and witness Katie and Matt get married in the same church that Rachel and Bryon did just a couple years earlier! Katie and Matt wed at St. Hugo of the Hills and then celebrated the night away at Lovett Hall.
I knew when I met Katie and Matt in the fall for their engagement session that they were going to be an awesome couple to document! They were fun loving and extremely easy going. They had a blast with their engagements and it made me so excited to capture them on one of the most important days of their lives!
The day began at Katie’s parents house in Bloomfield Hills. She looked stunning as ever and there was an immense amount of positive energy in the house. All the bridesmaids were so excited for the day to begin! Before capturing Katie getting into her dress, the girls enjoyed some champagne in their beautiful backyard. While I was photographing all the joy at the family residence, Derek was capturing Matt and his groomsmen at Dearborn Inn.
It wasn’t long before we were off to St. Hugo of the Hills. Matt and the boys took a little detour on their way over to the ceremony and played a game of pool, because why not!? But it wasn’t long until all the guests were seated and the ceremony began. Their ceremony was traditional and oh so beautiful. It was awesome to witness these two get married because I know their love is genuine. From spending less than 10 hours with these two I can tell they truly and deeply love each other, and that’s special my friends!
Okay, enough gushing… It’s time for the fun part! We headed off to the Henry Ford Museum with storm clouds in the sky. The bridal party had quite the adventure on their way over! Just as the torrential downpour ended, they arrived! The rain made for some awesome photographs in the reflections. We documented Katie and Matt along with their bridal party outside of Lovett Hall.
I love shooting at Lovett Hall because it is incredibly stunning! There are beautiful backdrops everywhere! I could have taken a million shots, but Katie and Matt (like most couples) were ready for a break! They relaxed while we captured the stunning details inside of Lovett Hall. Their reception was just as beautiful as it was fun!
Katie and Matt entered with the bridal party and following dinner, the festivities began! The DJ played while the guests danced, mingled, and reminisced. I almost didn’t want to leave!
But enough said, these two are pretty awesome, and I can’t wait to share their day with you!
Cheers to Katie and Matt!
