Here is a look inside our lakeside wedding, I can't believe it's been 6 years! Our wedding vision was beachy, romantic and most of all we wanted to our guest to have fun! We found the perfect secluded location on the shores of Lake Huron. We personalized the wedding details to follow our love story, which included the catered menu reflecting our first date of Italian food, our favorite signature drinks, and our wedding favors were a donation to St. Jude.
Hope you enjoyed!

Wishing a very happy 1st anniversary to our Mitten Weddings couple Janelle and Matt! The couple tied the knot at Riverside Receptions in Centerville, Michigan. It rained all morning long and we had been watching the weather radar hoping it would clear up in time for the ceremony. They were calling for rain all day and we had prepared to move the ceremony under a pavilion. Literally 4 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start, the skies opened and the sun began to shine! With the help of the venue team, we quickly moved the ceremony next to the river and Janelle and Matt had their dream ceremony. We love working with the super talented photographers from The DeLauras based out of California. Scroll down to view this gorgeous Michigan riverside wedding and a lavender toss.
Cheers to Friday! Here is one of my all time favorite mules!

Not into whiskey? Try Valentine Vodka to keep it Michigan. Moscow Mule mugs also make great wedding favors with a custom wedding logo!

The weekend is finally here! Shannon and Mark are tying the knot! These two met in Detroit when Mark was on duty and the rest was history. I love how Detroit details they are including in their special day. There two are seriously the sweetest and I've never had a group of wedding vendors so excited to see their wedding day come together. Here are a few of their epic engagement photo's taken by Lars at Detroit Photo Company.
Lindsey and Clay had a classic blush and gold black tie wedding at The Baronette Renaissance Detroit Novi Hotel. The first look took place outside of the hotel and Clay’s reaction was priceless. I, seriously just love first looks!
The wedding party took pictures all over Detroit and they tied the knot at Sweetest Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church. This church is absolutely stunning from the stained glass windows to the delicate details in the ceiling. This church actually holds the record for the longest aisle in Michigan!
I had so much fun getting to know Lindsey who is a fellow boss lady helping people all across the US reach their health goals. Scroll below to fall in love with this timeless wedding captured by Detroit Photo Company.

Caitlyn and Scott's gorgeous lakefront wedding had a fresh, feminine color palette of blush, ivory and navy. Their classic Michigan waterfront wedding took place at Bay Pointe Inn in Shelbyville. Every detail from flowers to the bar sign was a glimpse of the couples fun personalities. I had an incredibly hard time narrowing down the photo's taken by the talented Weddings by Adrienne & Amber. We had so much fun working with Caitlyn! She is a school teacher turned successful realtor agent , buying and selling home with The Perna Team, Keller Williams Realty team!
2016 has been a wonderful year, God has blessed me with many opportunities, a growing family, and genuine relationships. As the year comes to an end I wanted to share a few of my favorite Michigan weddings! I love looking back at all of our Mitten Couples and I'm so thankful they selected us to be a part of their wedding day.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but how do you find time to get those wedding to-do’s checked off your list between holiday parties and wrapping presents? Here a few easy steps to make the holidays less stressful.
2. Guest list- Use your holiday card list as a starting point for your wedding invites or even guest list. Make a note of which addresses you’re missing and at family gatherings ask for the ones you need.
3. Hair and makeup trial run- Schedule a trial run for hair and makeup on a day you have a holiday party! So many brides schedule a trial of their hair and makeup styles for the big day, but few plan what they’ll do after they get all dolled up. Don’t waste that gorg updo on a trip to the grocery store or house chores!
4. Plan for rest and relaxation- It’s your first time enjoying the holidays as an engaged couple! Seasonal stress, wedding planning and your busy schedule you may be feeling run down and sick. Set time set aside time in your to relax with your partner and loved ones.
