Hudson + Natalie
After the romantic ceremony, the bridal party, my second shooter, Kristy, and I headed outside to what was the golden end to our Michigan fall. In Law Quad at University of Michigan, the colors were on full display. By this time of year, the autumnal reds and oranges among the trees are long gone, but the last colors to fade are these beautiful yellows!
Aren't they stunning? Just classic.
Gotta shout out to Kristy for this shoe shot (and many others)!
Natalie's bridesmaids were so fun and effortlessly beautiful to photograph.
You gotta love the guys, when its post ceremony and their just starting to get goofy.
Now, if I had a study spot like THIS on my college campus, I probably would have studied more. Maybe... Its just breathtaking!
The crew was treated well and had loads of their favorites on playlist - we are pumped up to get the celebrating started! ( partybusdetroit.com )
Reception took place inside the beautiful, historic UMMA (this portion built in 1910). It was such a neat concept to have a reception here. Guests were able to wander to many areas to view collections on display. It also served as the perfect venue for a surprise that was up the FOB's sleeve!
Kristy and I weren't totally expecting this (along with a few others) shot, but their reaction to Two Foot Creative's design and implementation of their reception, was PRICELESS. As the walked into the UMMA, they were truly in awe and so pleased with what came of all their planning! It was a very sweet request of theirs to be the first to see it all, before everyone came into the reception area. I hope more couples plan time to do this, more often.
The rich golds from outside and the girls accents, were tied in with the purpley-maroons in the flowers. It all tied together so seamlessly. Plus, you can't get a more stunning display, then from the balcony of in the main hall.
After I pulled them away for a few more minutes, they found some alone time....
The area that began as cocktail hour, was conveniently transformed into a late night bite to eat.
Party time! Their friends and family showed up in full force to celebrate these two!
I have to admit I had a blast!
See? As I said in Part 1 of this blog, these three are just adorable.
What a fun, beautiful, memorable evening to celebrate Hudson + Natalie. Thank you again for allowing me to have a part in your wedding day. From your dress, to details, to graciousness of everyone, and most of all - YOU TWO - it made my job that day so easy.
Thank you to Two Foot Creative for pulling this all together beautifully.
Hudson + Natalie, I hope your images are a treasure for you and your families for a lifetime.
God bless you on your journey together!
