The biggest lesson I have learned as a wedding photographer is that humans are so much more alike than they are different. Every human, no matter race, religion, or ethnicity, wants to love and be loved. Every human wants to share special moments with family and loved ones. Having the honor of photographing beautiful weddings around the world of Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu and non-religious couples reconfirms these truths time and time again. I am blessed to witness the warmth of love and compassion between humans of all kinds on such an intimate and beautiful day - the wedding day.
I have photographed MANY weddings and have seen a lot of beautiful ceremonies and receptions, but there are very few that literally stop me in my tracks. As I entered Maheen and Adil's reception ballroom at the historic Dearborn Inn in Michigan, my jaw literally dropped. The elegant space was beautifully adorned with chiffon drapery and raised, enormous hydrangea floral arrangements. Cherry blossoms were beautifully placed between the florals.
No detail was spared - from the brides (two pairs) of Bagdley Mischka heels, to her jewelry which belonged to her grandmother, the day(s) were beyond stunning! One the first day of celebrations, the bride wore gold and ivory, with a gorgeous veil dreams are made of. On the second day, she wore ruby and gold and her happiness was contagious! The food was truly a cut-above and included a warm donut stand and desserts for days.
We are so blessed to capture the happiest day of people's lives and are so thankful to be graciously included by the family and friends of our lovely couples. Thank you Maheen and Adil for allowing us to capture your most precious and beautiful day! Enjoy this sneak peek!
