Super nice couple and great wedding party… especially the ever helpful best man, Prashanth. Their wedding day was full of coincidences… I drove past my brideâ€™s house from the previous Saturday (Iâ€™d addressed the envelope earlier in the day) and since itâ€™s in the middle of nowhere, I thought that was interesting. Then Nikole had a succulent flower in her bouquet (which strongly resembles a little artichoke). Iâ€™d never seen that flower before, except that my bride from the previous evening had given out potted versions of the same plant as their thank you gift to guests! Shouldâ€™ve played the lottery that day, I guess! Their florist, by the way, was the most professionally dressed florist I’ve encountered and I loved the bouquet she created for Nicole. She’s Janet from Floral Verde, so check her out.We took photos in what Nikole described as â€œa swampâ€ which was a lovely nature center in Novi. I couldnâ€™t help but to refer to Eric and Nikole as Fiona and Shrek as I took photos in what was truly a swampy bog! Good sports and speaking of good sports… all the wedding party was pretty happy and fired up since UM beat Notre Dame. It was a true blue wedding… right down to the subtle wedding party colors. I got to work with one of my favorite DJâ€™s, Sara Gharacheh from Platinum Mix. I also have to give a shout out to the two little ring bearers. Not only were they cute (weâ€™re talking mini Brad Pitt cute!), they were sweet, well behaved, funny little guys who had everyone at that party mesmerized. Totally adorable. I give 90% of the credit to good parenting. They were funny little angels all night long and their dance floor moves created more great crowd shots that anything Iâ€™ve seen before. Are they for hire, perhaps??? Looking to see more photos from this wedding? Try my other blog at www.themichiganweddingphotographer.blogspot.com.
