Colleen & Michael’s wedding at St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox Livonia & Shenandoah Country Club MI Wedding Reception West Bloomfield MI


Michael & Colleen’s wedding photos from St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox in Livonia & Shenandoah Golf & Country Club West Bloomfield MI

Michael & Colleen’s wedding was held at St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox in Livonia. We photographed the wedding reception at the Shenandoah Country Club MI.  The club is in West Bloomfield.  This was a beautiful wedding in a lot of ways with a special shout out to our new friend Douglas Ceuninck from Designs by Douglas who pulled together a gorgeous room for the event.

We started at the bride’s house for getting ready shots.  One of use with the bride, one of us with the groom’s family.  After some time at the homes everyone loaded up and headed for the church.

The service at St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox in Livonia…

This is one of the most beautiful churches in the area.  Without doubt, one of the best!  The service was held mid afternoon by one of our favorite priests.  I remember very well the first wedding I every shot with him performing the service.  He was great and so polite to everyone.  We all felt so comfortable with him.  The Orthodox Church contains some of the oldest sacred traditions.  The service is about an hour long. After that we took some family photos before we headed over to Shenandoah Country Club MI.

The party was on and we had a great time with the couple.  We can’t wait for our next golf club wedding!
