O my Lord have mercy do we love these two…
Nicole and Jeff are mega in love and everyone knows it. Being around them is like being around a reminder of what it looks like to be enamored with one another while being completely comfortable with who you are together. Its just right you guys. Just right. We had been looking forward to this wedding since before Nicole had even met Jeff. No lie. We adored Nicole and hoped that one day when she met the truly amazing man that she would eventually marry, that we would be there to witness and photograph it. Dreams do come true!
The wedding took place at the Metropolitan Building in Queens, NY. It’s a huge funky loft space that is what NYC wedding dreams are made of. Views of the Queens, and lots of cool old furniture were everywhere. During the ceremony, they joked about Tinder and guests coming ALL THE WAY from Manhattan, and before you knew it, they were official. Drinks, toasts, dinner, and dancing were up next… including a first dance that honestly made me cry, (which rarely happens during a first dance). Moon River and Close Slow Snuggly Dancing apparently gets me. <3
One very important detail to point out: They are BOTH redheads. Dan wanted me to point that out.

Dan and Becky went to school together and she’s kept up with us ever since we started our business in 2010. When she and Kevin got engaged, she wrote us and asked us to be a part of her wedding day. We were super excited to say the least. We love to photograph friends weddings PLUS this one was a destination wedding so we were all in.
The couple got ready at a hotel outside of Detroit and then we all headed to the historic Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, where the first Model T was conceived and developed by Henry Ford himself. Cool right? The setting was so beautiful in our photographer eyes: gorgeous natural light pouring in the huge windows, brick, steel, chipping paint. We also took them to a mural in the city just a couple blocks away. It was so incredible and colorful and a dream to photograph. We were in heaven.
The ceremony took place surrounded by historic Ford cars and family and friends. With a dozen children in her family alone, there were A LOT of family members in attendance. Afterwards, we went outside for a few more portraits and then it was time for the party. They served some out of control BBQ and Coca cola and sweet Tea for dinner along with a dessert table that I salivated after as I edited the photos weeks later. After dinner, Becky’s dad performed a song he had written for her which was beyond precious. Dancing began and it was a laid back, sweet, snuggly evening. Since it was the last wedding of the season and we were feeling spunky, we even hit up the after party at the hotel later that night. All in all…. an incredible exclamation point to end our 2016 season!
