Fall weddings will always be a favorite of mine! There is their certain cozy and intimate feel about fall weddings that I’ll never get tired of, and Gabby and Derek’s wedding was just that. They were married a couple weeks ago, on which what seemed like one of the rainiest days in months. The rain didn’t even phase Gabby and Derek! They both were just so happy to be getting married and that they were spending the day with all of their family and friends. It actually worked out perfectly, as soon as we stepped outside for their portraits at the Detroit Institute of Arts the rained stopped!! We had the perfect window of no rain, and we were able to capture all of the images that we needed without an umbrella. Like I said, it was perfect!
Gabby and Derek were one of the first couples to book me for their 2017 wedding, so I’ve been eagerly anticipating their wedding for over a year! Truthfully, I can’t even believe it’s already over, but I’m so excited for these two. Gabby and Derek are two of the sweetest people, and they were complete dream clients to work with over the last year and a half (see their engagement session here)! Before the reception, they even had us take a little detour to their house so that they could take a few pictures with their puppy!! SO cute!
One of my favorite moments from their wedding day was the moment the church doors opened, and Gabby walked down the aisle with her father. The Sweetest Heart of Mary is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Detroit, and the moment those doors opened and the music played it felt so majestic and emotional. Gabby took everyone’s breath away!
Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, I hope you two are loving married life! Your wedding was nothing short of amazing, and I’m so grateful that I was able to be a part of it. Thank you for making me feel like family, that truly means so much to me. Enjoy these photos! I hope they help you relive their wedding day!!
