We had perfect weather on Saturday for Michael and Christine’s ceremony at St. Hugo’s Chapel and reception at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Michael and Christine looked like they stepped right out of a magazine. They are the perfect couple and had the perfect wedding day. We shot Christine’s sister Lauren’s wedding a couple years ago, so it was really nice to reconnect with such a warm and wonderful family.
Michael and Christine’s wedding ceremony was held at St. Hugo of the Hills. This is a beautiful Catholic church full of character and amazing architecture.
Their reception was held in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan at Oakland Hills Country Club. Oakland Hills’ South golf course was designed by Donald Ross, the foremost golf course architect of his day.
Founded in 1916, Oakland Hills Country Club has, and will continue to play a significant role in the history of golf in the United States. Walter Hagen, five time PGA Champion, was the club’s first head professional. The South Course has played host to 16 Major Championships including: six U.S. Opens; two U.S. Senior Opens; U.S. Women’s Amateur; U.S. Men’s Amateur; Western Open; the Carling World Open; the 35th Ryder Cup in 2004; and three PGA Championships — including the 90th PGA Championship in 2008. Some of the greatest players ever to play the game including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Ben Hogan have competed and won on the famed South Course, also known as “The Monster”. The membership is proud of the heritage of their club and consider themselves stewards of a national golf treasure.
Michael and Christine are both University of Michigan graduates… which explains the picture below! GO BLUE!
I also want to give props to videographer Lee Thomas! We always enjoy working side by side with Lee and Lisa!!
