Christine and Jim
Ahhh. The last weekend in November- just two days after Thanksgiving. Christina and James were married at St Joan of Arc church, which just so happens to be the location I began my day at.
I arrived a few minutes before the bride, and got all of my stuff set up. The church was beautiful and reminds of St. Mary's Orchard Lake- gotta love stained glass for photos!
Christine was a tad bit nervous so instead of pushing her to get the photos of her and each of the girls individually ahead of time, I let her relax and didn't bother her- I really wanted her to have a calm aura during her vows!
After the ceremony and the formal family photographs, we headed over to Wahby Park (Blossom Heath) for some outdoor photos. After November 1st, you do not need a reservation at the Park to take photos- you just have to be careful not to get in the way of any other couples who happen to be having their wedding at Blossom heath- they get first dibbs.
After Wahby, we headed over to Metro Beach for more outdoor photos- what a magical evening we had for photos that ended with a phenomenal sunset!
I headed over to the reception hall- The Concorde Inn- while the bridal party utilized their limo time and drove around and had some drinks.
What more can I say about the rest of the evening? Good food, good friends and an amazing party!
Congrats you guys! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
