It’s so evident how much Ashlee and Michael adore each other! After you see the way these two look at each other in these photos, you’ll definitely agree. I remember when I first saw these two together at the engagement session, I just knew that they’d be incredible to work with and I was right. Being able to capture their love was so sweet and their wedding day was filled with so much emotion! Ashlee and Michael’s Downtown Detroit wedding at the Colony Club was so beautiful and perfect in every way. Choosing a favorite moment from a wedding day is always impossible, but if I had to choose a couple favorite moments from Ashlee and Michael’s wedding it would be these:
The morning of the wedding, Ashlee wanted to give her grandmother a gift. Ashlee’s grandfather sadly passed away, so Ashlee had a piece of one of his shirts sewn into her dress and made into a handkerchief for her grandmother. She wanted to have a small time set aside that morning to giver her grandmother that gift, and that moment will bring tears to your eyes!
Ashlee and Michael decided to put their own spin on their first look and it couldn’t have been more perfect. A couple hours before the ceremony, Ashlee and Michael met up at the church for their first look! It was just the two of them in the cathedral and Michael was waiting for Ashlee at the altar. Soon after they saw each other, they sat in the pews together and read their promises to each other! There were lots of tears and laughs and it was one of the sweetest first looks I’ve been able to witness.
To the newlyweds, I hope you two are soaking up all the sun on your honeymoon (please bring some warmth back to Michigan)! Thank you for the bottom of my heart for choosing me to capture your wedding day. It was so amazing and I cannot wait for you to see these photos!!
