Are you ready for a BIG blog post!? I truthfully don’t even know where to begin with Ashleigh and Kevin’s amazing Meadow Brook wedding day. Their day was beyond perfect. Late October in Michigan is always a bit of a gamble, but it was in the 6os and sunny for their lovely Meadow Brook wedding. Ashleigh and Kevin are two of the kindest people I have ever met. HanI love these two so much. Their families and entire bridal party were so wonderful all day long. It honestly just doesn’t get any better!
Ashleigh and Kevin shared a sweet first look in front of the beautiful Meadow Brook Mansion before their ceremony. I say it all the time, but first looks are my favorite. It’s such a wonderful private moment for couples before the day really gets into full swing and those photos always end up being favorites! I love all of the photos we took of these two and their awesome bridal party in front of the mansion! Their Meadow Brook wedding was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever witnessed. It was so thoughtful and heartfelt. Ashleigh’s mom spoke so beautifully during the ceremony!
After their Meadow Brook wedding, we stopped by Ashleigh and Kevin’s house on the lake before heading to their Royal Park hotel reception. Ashleigh and Kevin love their dog so much (I can relate!) and really wanted a few pictures with their sweet boy, Charlie. When we got there, Charlie stood up and HUGGED Kevin. It was the cutest thing ever and one of my favorite photos! The photos on the lake dock with the sun shining in the background and beautiful Fall colors were just perfect.
The Royal Park Hotel was the perfect setting to really get the party started! Their reception was so much fun. I absolutely loved the bridal party entrances! In a nod to Friends, the entire bridal party entered with bright umbrellas and the Friends theme song played. I was seriously jumping for joy behind my camera. I love that they love Friends and I loved the nod to their new married last name together! I could go on and on about these two, but I think all of these photos really speak for themselves. These two are wonderful individuals and even better together.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Chandler!! It was such an honor to photograph your wedding day and I am so grateful you chose me! I hope you guys love these photos as much as I do!!
