What a way to start our 2021 wedding season — a beautiful and FUN out-state-wedding at the historic Packard Proving Grounds in Shelby Township, Michigan! It’s definitely “full-circle” that we started this season with Adam & Jenny’s wedding as they were the first ones to call us last spring to tell us they would be postponing their wedding to 2021. I remember being a bit shocked at the time as COVID was very much a new and unknown subject. These two, however, were ahead of many of us not only being employed in the medical field but also living in New York City at the time. Their call was our personal ‘light bulb’ moment of how the pandemic was going to greatly affect our business! Then, it seemed like SO LONG until their wedding day and yet somehow, just like that, here we are : ) Finally blogging the CELEBRATION that their day was!!!!!
Adam & Jenny hosted their day at Packard Proving Grounds which was such a unique and cool venue! We’ve never photographed a wedding anywhere like this before. It was the perfect spot for a wedding just outside of Motor City and only five minutes from Adam’s parent’s home! The amazing old buildings, history, and beautiful trees made the property something special and I’m really excited to share these images with you! If you like old cars, you are definitely in the right place : ) The Packard is staffed by mostly volunteers and it was SO awesome to be surrounded by people incredibly passionate about the venue …. it was enchanting really!
As much as we enjoyed photographing in such a new and different space, our fondest memories of the day (by far) are the interactions we were able to witness and document between Adam & Jenny. I can confidently say they shared as many laughs as they did happy tears … just SO overjoyed to finally be celebrating their marriage. I love how in-tune they each are, not only with their own emotions, but with the emotions of one another. They laughed, cried, and felt it all so fully and deeply. Completely unplanned, their vows nearly mirrored one another’s. And as the evening went on, they shared stories and danced the night away in a room filled with those they loved most : )
Enjoy some favorites from such a special day — I am beyond excited to continue sharing more weddings with you this year!!!!
