In the Beginning…

We shot a fun wedding a couple of weeks back for Nicole & Craig at Crystal Gardens Howell, A Banquet Hall in Howell MI.  The wedding was held outside under the pavilion.  The weather was cool and comfortable under the pavilion which made for a beautiful wedding.  I don’t think I have ever seen an orange tux before at a wedding but was told it was part of a “Dumb & Dumber” movie theme.  The ushers seemed to have a great time with this!  After the wedding ceremony we took a few family photos and took off into the reception.

The Party…

Their grand entrance was very festive with a trivia game of who knows more about the other.  They were pretty closely matched and had lots of fun.  The party came off without a hitch, the food was good and everyone had a great time!  I ran into a couple at the wedding that I photographed back in ’03 and had fun catching up on their lives.  It is amazing how time flies.

Night Shots…

The couple wanted to get some night shots and with a big parking lot all the way around the building it was a fun challenge!  I really like what we were able to achieve for them.   Our best goes out to them for a wonderful life together.

We can’t wait for our next Crystal Gardens wedding!
