Krista & Matt's Holy Family Church Wedding

posted on: May 27, 2008

Could these two be any more beautiful together?! Seriously!

Krista started off the day getting her hair and makeup done at home along with her family and friends. I think this next image captures that feeling of being wrapped up in the day...

I just love the next image of her and her father in the limo as they're getting ready to go to the church...

Can't you just feel Matt's anticipation as he tries to see his bride at the end of the aisle?

The ceremony was held at the beautiful and historic Holy Family Church in downtown Detroit, where names from several generations of Krista's family were literally carved into the church's history.

At the end of the ceremony, the priest said, "Photographer! Come here!" For a minute I had that "who me?" look, but quickly made my way to the front, feeling pretty nervous! Turns out he just wanted me to take a picture up close of the couple with their marriage license! How funny! Since I was there, I also happened to grab this moment when he thought I was done taking the picture he wanted me to take... which of course, I like even more. ;-) That's the first time I've seen the priest kiss the groom!

These next photos sum up the trip between the ceremony and the reception... at least the PG-13 parts...

The reception was held at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Macomb, MI and showcased details of rust, orange, and red roses, as well as many hand-crafted details made by none other than the groom himself, whose family is known for their custom carpentry and craftsmanship. Each table was named after a specific type of tree and included a stand that showcased that particular wood. Check out the beautiful frame on that seating chart too! So, as a shameless plug, if you're looking for custom carpentry in the Detroit area, definitely call Zuckero & Sons. ;-)

There are a few things you can count on at pretty much every wedding, and one of them is someone asking for a look at the bride's ring!

While guests were enjoying cocktails inside, we went for a little joy ride around the golf course...

When I first met Matt, he was the best man for Kelly & Brian's wedding and quite the prankster! I have to say, in Matt's role as the groom, he was definitely the tamest I've ever seen him! It was Brian's turn to be the best man, and even though he's not one to speak in front of large groups of people, he gave a very moving speech.

... but the tears didn't stop there...

Mmmm..... bananas foster and fire....

What I love, love, love about this picture is the couple in the foreground and both sets of parents in the background, from youngest to eldest couple...

We had a gorgeous sunset!

I love playing with light, and I loved being able to photograph Krista & Matt's wedding! Thank you so much!!! I'm going to miss this group of friends!!
