Ovation Yacht Wedding | Nicole & Durell

So many AMAZING summer and fall weddings, so little time! I’ve made it a priority this past season to get my client’s images to them asap. That, along with shooting almost every weekend and several times during the week has left me behind on blogging, which is so unfortunate, because I am DYING to show all of these amazing weddings to you! Now that my wedding season is slowly coming to an end, I’m gearing up to feature all of my gorgeous clients in the next few weeks. Starting with Nicole and Durell’s stunning St. Clair Shores wedding.

When I think of Nicole and Durell’s wedding this past summer, I think of one thing… Fun. They held an elegant ceremony alongside the shores of Lake St. Clair on a beautiful, sunny summer day. After they were officially Mr. & Mrs., they hosted a luxurious reception with their family and closest friends as we sailed away on the Ovation Yacht. So much laughter. So much dancing. So much FUN.

Congratulation Nicole and Durell! I enjoyed photographing every second of your beautiful day!

The bride started her day in Detroit, along with her bridesmaids and flower girl. Nicole’s niece Lanie looked adorable trying on her aunt’s shoes.

Nicole had a special surprise pendant made for Durell. Outside representing his time serving in the Marines and inside pictures of his mother who passed away.

Durell’s sister Lakesha surprised him with Nicole’s gift before the ceremony.

The bride and groom were invited into the control room by the Captain to sound the ship’s horn!

They shared their first dance as a married couple just as the Detroit skyline came into view.

After Nicole danced with her father, Durell had a special dance with his sister that was full of so much joy! I love photographing it.
