June was a busy month for Sarah Kossuch Photography, specifically June 3rd. We had three weddings on the same day and the excitement couldn’t have been higher. We all went woke up Saturday morning knowing that three different stories were going to be told and captured uniquely by us. While I cannot speak for the other two, I can tell you that I absolutely loved capturing Christina and Josh’s special day. This Orchard Lake Country Club summer wedding was stunning as ever and I had the pleasure of documenting it all.
As I walked into Christina’s blush dressing room on the morning of, I could feel the excitement in the air. Christina and Josh got ready at their reception location, Orchard Lake Country Club. James, from Mitten Studios, captured Josh while I documented the sweet moments between Christina and her ladies. There was a beautiful sense of calm, yet the excitement started to flourish as Christina got ready for their first look.
Josh stood out on the lawn of Orchard Lake as James documented the quiet moments just before the two saw each other. This is ALWAYS one of my favorite moments to document. I absolutely love capturing the pure joy and amazement on their faces when they see each other for the first time. It’s pure bliss! Following their first look, we captured Christina and Josh along with their bridal party before they headed off to the ceremony.
Christina and Josh had this unbelievable loving chemistry. They calmed each other and made each other laugh. It was almost too easy to capture the love between these two. They melted into each other arms and always looked at each other with genuine happiness in their eyes. Their happiness and the day did not skip a beat, Christina smiled through it all. And I swear, Josh grinned from ear to ear most of the day.
These two wed at Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Shrine Chapel. It truly was a beautiful ceremony. Josh’s sisters even sang beautifully during the ceremony. There was an incredible amount of sentiment and joy packed into one ceremony. But the unique beauty of the day was only beginning.
Following Christina and Josh’s amazing speeches and dinner, these two had their first dance. And let me tell you, it was the BEST first dance ever. I’ve seen an immense amount of choreographed first dances, but none like this. Their song was unique and fun and their dance was performed with perfection. It was classy, yet modern.
The night continued with lots of dancing and I mean LOTS of dancing. Christina wasn’t afraid to dance as crazy as her guests. The energy filled the room and all the guests were hanging out on the dance floor. It’s always an awesome sight when the guests are living it up on the dance floor. I packed my photo equipment up at the end of the night knowing that these two were surrounded by the ones they loved.
I cannot wait to show you their amazing day! Take a look at the incredible Christina + Josh!
