This winter wedding downtown Plymouth has easily become on of my most favorite. Not because of the decor, or details, or dresses, but because of the wonderful people I was able to work with. When I first met Steve and Brynn for their engagement session downtown Detroit last spring, I felt immediately connected. They were both so easy to get a long with, both had great personalities, and we shared lots of laughs. We have many small personal connections that we found like Steve and I are both teachers and Brynn swam at the University of Buffalo, where we have a personal connection to the men’s basketball coach. I could tell then, that Steve and Brynn had hearts of gold and were truly wonderful people. I also saw that on their wedding day as I met their wonderful families and spent the day laughing and crying with them.
It was during the reception though when I was truly humbled by how my business lets me connect with people I value and cherish so much. Steve’s best man shared a story about how Steve teaches elementary school and he had a student who was feeling alone and even picked on because of her hobby, ribbon dancing. So Steve, in order to help his student, learned a routine and performed it in front of his students. All of the other students wanted to be a part of this and were now going to the young girl and asking her about her hobby. I know I am missing larger details in the story, but as I was photographing this speech with tears in my eyes because I know exactly why Steve did what he did, I was just so thankful to have been a part of this day. To be a part of a day where I got to meet their family, photograph their first kiss, first dance, and capture their love story. Thank you Brynn and Steve for asking me to document your beautiful winter wedding, and the first day of your new lives together. I am so thankful to have become connected; congratulations again Mr. and Mrs. Bruestle.
