The Wedding of Sarah and Patrick – December 31, 2012

I’m going to have to apologize in advance for the length of this post  – it’s going to be SUPER long!

Silly me, seems I forgot to blog this lovely couple’s engagement session and I’m just now getting around to blogging their wedding – so here it goes – a SUPER DUPER TWOFER!

Sarah and Patrick were so awesome! They were a blast to photograph and their wedding was not only absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful, it was so much fun. Since it was held on New Years Eve how could it not be fun, right?!

But here I go again, getting ahead of myself! Before their big day, we got together in early November to take some engagement photos at Van Hoosen Farm in Rochester Hills. Awesome location by the way 🙂

Now, on to the wedding!

Both the ceremony and reception were held at 30 North in downtown Pontiac. OMG is all I can say. Built in the historic era of the roaring twenties, 30 North has long been associated with the banking and financial industry. Many of its historic architectural characteristics and details were all preserved: the wall mounted Community National Bank logo, original marble-top banking tables and floors, original vault and safety deposit boxes, even the President’s office upstairs with its original cork flooring. Gorgeous.

The wedding details themselves were unique and one-of-a-kind as well. Sarah was a true do-it-yourselfer. Everything from her centerpieces, guest cards, decorations, programs, and other goodies – she made herself. Even her wedding dress was an updated version of her mother’s gown, which was worn in the 1970s.

  • Reception/Ceremony location: 30 North, Pontiac
  • Dress: handmade
  • Tuxes: Macy’s Department Store
