Beautiful wedding at The Westin with Brandon and Laura

This past weekend we had the pleasure of photographing Brandon and Laura’s beautiful wedding at The Westin Southfield Detroit. We absolutely loved photographing Brandon and Laura’s engagement session, so we were really excited to capture some more pictures of them on their big day! Laura was absolutely glowing and we loved her stunning Winnie Couture dress from Sposa Bella. Devawn from Vinnie & June did an amazing job on her makeup! She couldn’t have been a more beautiful bride. With Brandon by her side, these two looked like they stepped right out of a fairy tale.

Brandon and Laura’s ceremony was at the amazing St. Hugo of the Hills church. They had a beautiful ceremony and were so sweet and endearing with each other. We loved photographing it!

Afterwards, we took the newlyweds and their bridal party to the Cranbrook Art Museum to capture some awesome photos of them. Cranbrook is one of the best locations for photo sessions. Between the beautiful grounds and all the unique architecture, the possibilities are endless. We are so glad to be one of their approved photographers! Aside from the beautiful location, it’s pretty ridiculous how beautiful this couple is too! We felt like we were photographing celebrities! The weather was absolutely perfect too and all their photos turned out amazing.

For Brandon and Laura’s reception, we headed back to The Westin where their friends and family celebrated and danced the night away! They had the most beautiful and elegant centerpieces which were provided by Della’s Maple Lane Florist and they were a perfect match with their charger plates from Linens & Beyond. The linens from Marturo Events went perfectly with the rest of the decor and the chivari chairs from Affairs to Remember a perfect touch as well! Their wedding cake was very classic and simple, but with a touch of flowers and sparkle. Faithful Little Cupcake, who is a family friend of the couple, did an amazing job designing it! We love how it turned out! We also had the pleasure of working alongside Zara Creative as they were their videographers for the evening. Once it was time for the dancing to begin, Bluewater Kings did an awesome job providing some high energy and great music!

We are so grateful to have been able to be a part of this special day. We wish Brandon and Laura nothing but the best in their futures together!
