What an absolutely gorgeous wedding day for Karen and Scott! Jen did an outstanding job capturing all the fun, emotion and love of the day! One of the reasons we love taking wedding pictures at St. Hugo of the Hills is the historic stone chapel. Check out some of our favorite images below!
In Jen’s own words:
“You are my happily ever after…” The sentiment that had been carefully etched onto Karen and Scott’s champagne flutes said it perfectly. Theirs was a wedding day that couldn’t have gone more perfect, and it was obvious to anyone with eyes that these two were, quite simply put, just meant to be.
It was an absolutely gorgeous summer day in late June. The sun was out and there were a few clouds scattering the sky. You couldn’t have asked for better weather for Karen and Scott’s wedding day.
Karen started the day of getting ready at the Bloomfield Hills Country Club, where they were having their reception later that evening. When I arrived, the girls were getting their hair done and enjoying each other’s company. Karen was a picture of grace and didn’t seem nervous at all. One of the most memorable moments from that morning occurred right before Karen got dressed, while she sat with her mother and bridesmaids on the couch, about to start getting dressed. Karen was given a compiled book of memories, aptly titled “Letters to the Bride,” with pictures, letters, inside jokes, etc. spanning the many years of their friendships that her girls had put together for her in an album. Let me tell you…I think that everyone got teary-eyed at that point. It was such a lovely, touching and thoughtful gift that I know will be cherished forever.
Once dressed and after some family photographs on the golf course, everyone gathered at the historic St. Hugo of the Hills for their wedding ceremony. The joyful tears and the smiles on their guests’ faces made one thing obviously clear…Karen and Scott are so very loved by their friends and family. It was a perfect, intimate ceremony, and before I knew it, they were officially husband and wife.
Once back at the country club, we were able to sneak Karen and Scott away for a few minutes to capture some more intimate moments between the two of them before they headed in to be announced and to cut their wedding cake. After the speeches were made and dinner was finished, Karen and Scott had their first dance to Ellie Goulding. After that, light-up bracelets, glasses and foam sticks were handed out and everyone started tearing up the dance floor. It was definitely a night to remember and Aaron and I couldn’t have had a more enjoyable time spending such a special day with these two and their friends and families. Congratulations on your new life together! We’re so happy for you both!
