Hello, my name is Shauna and I have a ‘posting too many images within my blog’ problem. But when I photograph a wedding that is SO romantic, SO fun, and filled with SO much joy, how can I NOT want to post every. single. one?!?
This is the case with Ryan and Rachel’s wedding last month. My goodness, friends. Even though the rain poured down during their portrait time, bringing strong winds and big changes in our plans, that couldn’t wipe the smile from my face (or theirs). Their wedding day was one for the books and these two will always hold such a special place in my heart. Ryan and Rachel are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, and I am honored they chose me to capture their beautiful day.
Rachel and Ryan had gifts for each other to open before the ceremony. Rachel didn’t want Ryan to figure out what his gift was ahead of time, so she wrapped a small box and hid his real present. After he opened the box, there was a note that his real present was much bigger. That’s when her brother gave him the hidden gift.
Rachel sewed a piece of material from Ryan’s police uniform into her dress, in the shape of heart, with his name on it.
Before Rachel left for the ceremony, she was given Ryan’s gift.
Their ceremony was held at the beautiful Our Lady of the Scapular in Wyandotte, MI.
Mr. & Mrs. Scott!!!
As their ceremony ended, the wind and rain came (its good luck!) so we changed our plans and headed downtown Detroit for their portraits.
We headed to downtown Wyandotte for a few more shots after the rain stopped.
Such an awesome bridal party!
We then headed to their reception at Orlando’s Banquet Center in Riverview, MI
Then it was time to party!
Congratulations Ryan & Rachel! I am so happy for you both!!
