Rachel + Jake Wedding Day Portraits | Penna’s of Sterling Wedding Photography

They say rain on a wedding day is good luck…that is, if you’re the Bride and Groom. When a dark rainy day presents itself in a venue with very few windows, you’ve got to create the beautiful light you envision in your head. That’s just what we did the other week at Rachel and Jake’s wedding that I got to shoot at Penna’s of Sterling with my good friend Mike Peraino. Rachel and Jake looked awesome, they were ready for fun, we snapped into action and we captured sophisticated, elegant portraits for them on their wedding day. The rain even let up just before the reception allowing us to quickly create some great images outdoors just before evening set in on this early Spring wedding day in Michigan.

Heather + Rich’s Wedding Day Details | Strawberry Creek Wedding Photography

No detail was left unplanned for Heather and Rich’s Fall themed wedding.  All the details came together so smoothly in just a couple months thanks to Heather’s event planning skills and Rich’s willingness to be part of all the planning. The crisp, sunny fall day was a great backdrop to a personal and emotional ceremony. All the guests reconvened in the evening at the beautiful, new Club at Strawberry Creek for a warm and cozy reception, complete with crackling fire. Check out some of our favorite details and moments from the day.Wendy captured a beautiful moment of pure emotion while Heather and her Dad waited in anticipation to walk down the aisle to meet her Groom.The November Fall colors were emphasized by incredible handmade details including a wonderfully colorful candy buffet by Karolina Warren of Weddings by Karolina; it was really a hit at the party. We loved Heather’s elegant hair piece she switched out her veil for, for the evening’s festivities.My favorite shot of the day was a dramatic capture of a tender moment that came at the end of Heather and Rich’s first dance. Moments later, the dance floor came alive with family and friends and the party really got moving.
