What’s better than Christmas time in Michigan? We’ll tell you! WEDDINGS DURING CHRISTMAS TIME! Just 2 days before Christmas, we provided Andrew and Tamika with beautiful Colony Club wedding photography. Not only is the Colony Club one of our favorite Detroit wedding venues, but Andrew and Tamika are some of our favorite people ever! These two are just simply hilarious to be around. When you’re around two people as in love as these two, our job becomes not only easy, but so enjoyable. Spending the day with this couple and their family in this beautiful venue that they styled so perfectly… it was like a Christmas present to us! ;) We started our day at the Marriott Renaissance, where the bridal party prepped for the big day. Tamika is the winter bride of our DREAMS in her beaded lace drop waist gown and fur shawl. As soon as she got in that gown she started dancing, and she didn’t stop dancing until the reception ended! She and Andrew were so excited to get married, it was a sweet atmosphere before the ceremony. And as U of M fans here in the Arising Images office, we loved the Wolverine pride in her garter! Such a cute touch.
Since it is December in Michigan, by default that means – INDOOR wedding photography. Most photographers would take that as a challenge – we say bring it on! We LOVE the photos we took with Andrew and Tamika inside the Colony Club. These two are so fun and adventurous, they were up for anything! Of course, we got some beautiful photos of Andrew twirling his bride, as well as a totally dreamy shot of them in their stunning ballroom. Their photos are romantic with a touch of drama, and we’re head over heels for them.
Speaking of their reception… *heart eyes*! What a beautiful winter style – dark, luxurious purple mixed with sparkly, shimmery silver. We feel so blessed to work with so many incredibly talented and creative vendors who make rooms like this happen. It keeps us inspired and helps us love what we do. And once this party started, it really started. What could we expect from this couple other than MORE DANCING?! And dance they did. We’ve been to a lot of great parties, but this reception topped the list.
Congratulations to Andrew and Tamika on their big day, and thank you so much for trusting us with your Colony Club wedding photography!
We loved the opportunity to work with you two, and hope to work for you again in the future!
