Stefan and Gretchen.

It's widely known that rain on a wedding day means "good luck".  So when the severe storm came on Sunday afternoon, 15 minutes before Stefan and Gretchen were to walk down the aisle of their outdoor wedding, Stefan and a group of guys quickly moved everything inside.  Surprisingly, the ceremony started only a few minutes behind!  The whole time, Gretchen and Stefan were calm and collected-something you wouldn't normally see from a bride and groom during a last-minute change of plans.  But that's why these two are so perfect for each other.  They rolled with the punches and still delivered an amazing ceremony for their guests.

Stefan and Gretchen did a "reveal" before the ceremony (which I'm a huge fan of) so we had plenty of time for photos and they had plenty of time to mingle with their guests afterwards.  Plus, I was able to get all of their portraits done before the nasty storm hit.

Since they live off Lake St. Clair, it only made sense to use that location.  When they saw each other, it was pure magic!

After the reveal, we took the party to the ceremony location, Sycamore Hills Golf Club, for formal photos.

It was a lot of fun to spend the day with these two and I wish them them the very best.  They're an great couple and show their strong love through both actions and words.
