This gorgeous couple had a glorious wedding day full of beauty, laughs, and happy tears. Rachel had everything organized down to the last detail and did a fabulous job making her dream wedding come to life! The bridal party was a great group of family & friends and everyone looked amazing in their navy blue gowns & grey suits... especially when the guys added their sunglasses on this bright fall day. I can't wait to share these moments with you, and I couldn't help but get caught up in Rachel's emotions as she walked down the aisle, listened to the speeches & toasts, danced with her dad, AND squealed with excitement when the DJ played her favorite song and she bounced to the dance floor.
After Michael & Rachel's ceremony at Saint Hugo's chapel, we headed to the equally picturesque Wyndgate Country Club in Rochester Hills, MI for their reception.
Michael & Rachel, you are such a lovely couple and your wedding day was so blessed by all of your friends & family who celebrated your marriage alongside you! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this amazing event; it was truly an honor to capture these moments for you!
