2011. The year Carmie, her family, and I became fast friends. It started with Peter and Carmie’s engagement session. And then came along the engagement session of her sister, Theresa and her love, Chris. We moved on to Carmie’s gorgeous wedding shower. And finally, we ended the year with Carmie and Peters UH-MAZING wedding. Oh, and did I mention I will be seeing them all again next year for Chris and Theresa’s wedding?
The point is that I have met them, photographed their very special times, and am in love with this family. They are wonderful people and I knew Peter and Carmie’s day was going to be so beautiful and special. Turned out I was right…times ten. The day was perfect and I am so happy to have crossed paths with this beautiful family.
Congrats Carmie and Peter!!!
My favorite shot of the day. At St. Hugo in Bloomfield Hills…the site of the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we headed to to Oakland Hills Country Club for a cocktail hour. Adore this shot of the groomsmen.
December brings a chilly, slightly eerie, but COMPLETELY romantic feel when shooting outdoors. The colors, lights, everything is just lovely. I SO love these shots of them outdoors and ESPECIALLY the shot on the left of Carmie, taken by Travis.
And last, we ended up at Andiamo in Warren for their reception. Sheesh…words do not describe the transformation from an already elegant and beautiful venue into a sparkling, magical reception site.
