There’s something so lovely and personal about a small wedding. Being surrounded by your closest friends and family is so very special.

Chelsea and Dustin had exactly that. They exchanged their vows overlooking the Detroit river, at the house Chelsea grew up in. With an ice cream bar, a bonfire, and spectacular views – they celebrated the night away with their closest and dearest. It was a perfect day.

Congrats again Chelsea and Dustin!

It was the rainiest and windiest June day I can remember. The rain didn’t stop all day. Not for a minute.

But as I walked into the Caesers hotel room where Anita was getting ready, I felt nothing but excitement. She wasn’t worried. Plus, her navy Hunter boots were perfectly ready for the occasion.

Surrounded by their family and friends, Anita and Adam exchanged vows in the beautiful Sprucewood Shores.  And as the raindrops fell on the windows of the winery, they sealed it with a kiss.

Anita and Adam, it has been such a pleasure to get to know you, and document your engagement and wedding story.  Watching you on your wedding day made the words of this quote completely come alive,

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

Clearly, you know how to do that. My hope is that you continue to dance through life’s storms together.  And Anita – do it in your navy Hunter boots. Every-single-time.  Big hugs…

Anita and her bridesmaids relaxed and got ready at Caesar’s Windsor.

Her stunning Hayley Paige gown and blue Manolo Blahnik pumps were patiently waiting to be put on.

Ok, off topic a bit but if these beauties look familiar, it’s because Carrie Bradshaw wore them when she married Mr. Big in Sex and the City.

Classic. I don’t think they’ll ever go out of style.
