Happy Tuesday to everyone!! There’s nothing like combining my favorite time of year, a gorgeous DIY wedding and an amazing couple. Today’s wedding has all of these and then some and it’s all beautifully chronicled by Sarah Amelia Photography, LLC.
From the Photographer: Leslie and Jason’s wedding day was full of love, DIY, glitter, and lots of family and friends celebrating two people who truly are each other’s missing piece. They took a journey to find one another, and it was obvious that the time had all been worth it. The bride and groom had amazing personalized details everywhere on their wedding day, I was in heaven photographing it all! They had their ceremony at Saints Helen and Constantine Greek Orthodox Church in Westland Michigan, and the reception next door at The Hellenic Cultural Center in Westland. The groom surprised his bride by catching her off guard when they were supposed to have their first dance, and sat down at his keyboard and played and sang their song, “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds. At times Jason was nervous and was having a hard time remembering the notes and words. Seeing this Leslie stepped in and took over the vocals as they finished the song together. I had tears in my eyes. They make a wonderful team. Congratulations to you both Leslie and Jason, it was such a pleasure being there to witness and photograph your wedding day. And though our sunflower field wasn’t quite what we needed it to be as it was for your engagement pictures, we still found some blooming flowers and a small field of sunflowers for you two. As I was photographing details earlier in the day I noticed the groom’s band was engraved with the words, “come what may”. Happiness always you two! May you always laugh together and make each other smile each and every day.
