February proved a perfect month to photograph a wedding in Livonia Michigan despite the polar vortex!
It was a delightful day to celebrate two new friends of ours–Crystall and John Rumbell. We began with Crystall at Christ Our Savior Church in Farmington and photographed the bride getting ready. All the preparations were creatively captured by Cheryl: photos with wonderful emotion and beautiful bridal portraits. The guys were next. Candid storytelling and handsome portraiture are best when combined with spontaneous moments. John obliged by demonstrating his eerie powers as he “Vaders” one of the groomsmen!
An incredibly special time for everyone was when we visited Crystall’s Grandparents’ house in Livonia. We photographed Grandpa viewing the wedding dress since he couldn’t attend the ceremony. He was so pleased to see her and they had some truly priceless moments together. Then we moved the wedding party on to Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth, MI, where we photographed the delightful bride and groom with their entertaining party. I think this might be a Northstar Photography and Design’s first wedding snowball fight!
Finally we headed to the beautiful reception at the Italian American Banquet Center in Livonia, MI. Both John and his Dad play trombone and Crystall is a singer, so it was only fitting that the reception had a musical theme. Crystall sang beautifully for her new husband, accompanied by the great Tim Hewitt Group. Dad sat in on trombone to make Crystall and John’s first dance even more memorable. Everyone enjoyed the day and we photographed lots of priceless wedding moments and many romantic images. One of our most favorite photographs is of the bride and groom by the piano- what a gorgeous wedding photo for their album!
Crystall and John: We hope you love your wedding images as much as we loved being with you on your special day. Thanks! John & Cheryl from Northstar Photography & Design
