I have waited a long time for this particular blog and I am giddy with excitement to write it. If I had the opportunity for my own wedding re-do I would duplicate everything about this wedding….from the venue to the entertainment, the horse drawn carriage, to the smaller more intimate crowd…EVERYTHING!!! Even the cupcakes! From the moment I got to the church I felt so welcomed by everyone in the family. I truly felt like part of the event; part guest, part photographer, and part concert goer. The venue was at the Howell Opera House (one of my top fav venues..check it out www.theoperahouse.us) it’s cozy, romantic and a great location for photo opportunities – really…if you haven’t picked a venue it’s really cool! When I originally met with Jennifer she told me they were having a 17-18 piece band for the wedding and I’m not sure what I was thinking but nothing could have prepared me for the Rhythm Society Orchestra www.rhythmsociety.net . I know I’m going to sound like a dork but it brought me to tears (again probably not that big of a shocker since I cry at every wedding but this brought on goosebumps for the coolness factor as well). They were so amazing and the way the crowd reacted was something I’ll remember to the day I die, it made 70 year olds dance like they were 18 again, and introduced younger people to an era of music that is magical. The dance floor was packed the entire night. I sang, I photographed, I laughed, I applauded for an encore and I never wanted it to end!!!
