Caitlin and Joey tell the story about after driving separately to meet me at my house, they called each other on the way home and said "Jay's our photographer!" We just hit it off. We had so much fun together that after our engagement session we went out to dinner, and here we are, a few months after their wedding and, recently, we went out to dinner again!
Both Caitlin and Joey got ready at the Detroit Athletic Club, where they are members. It was the perfect venue for them. It's classic, stately, and elegant, and that perfectly describes how Caitlin looked when I took her picture on the stairs!
Then we headed over to Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church for their beautiful ceremony. It is an incredible Cathedral and it reminds me of churches in England. I love shooting weddings in churches like this! Check out the pictures that Kathy took from the balcony of Caitlin being walked down the aisle by her Dad during the processional, and again during the recessional by her new husband. Just like the picture of Harry walking Meghan Markle down the aisle during their royal wedding!
Afterwards we drove to the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club for Caitlin and Joey's reception. I shot a wedding there years ago and if they had asked me where they should have their reception, that's where I would have suggested. It fit them perfectly! And the guests...man, they knew how to party. I was dancing right along with everyone when I was taking dancing pictures!
