Heading south of Detroit to Southgate, Michigan for Joshua & Emily’s wedding at The Grecian Center this past Friday, I knew that it was going to be an extraordinarily special day. This wonderful, incredibly in-love couple have known each other since they were kids and start dating around 4-and-a-half years ago. A trip to Northern Michigan sealed the deal where Joshua asked Emily to marry him. From that moment, they planned a sweet, outdoor wedding ceremony and a fun, swing dancing reception afterward!
Walking into the salon where Emily’s hair was pinned up in curls, I saw their wedding details and, I couldn’t help but notice the vow books Emily had set aside were FULL. Every single page, front and back, were full of sweet words, hopes for the future, and lovely-Dovey little things. I’m obviously not going to share what they wrote but this led to more and more of those little details popping out all day long.
One of those being that Joshua built the arch they would use for their ceremony. You’ll notice that it perfectly frames them in photos! What you won’t see though is me laughing because I could hear the wedding party practicing the line dance while I would taking Family Portraits. All of this added up to a beautiful wedding day.
Speaking of swing dancing, you might notice a super cool Swing Dancing Grand Entrance, a First Dance that involved sparklers, Emily dress flowing perfectly in any photo (great choice btw!) and so much fun and celebration that this couples deserves!
So for now, please enjoy seeing a few photos from Joshua & Emily’s wedding day at The Grecian Center and congratulations again Joshua & Emily!
Congratulations again Emily & Joshua! I’m so happy that I was the one who got to photograph your wedding day!!!
