A UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN STUDENT UNION WEDDING…
MEGAN and DAN’s University of Michigan wedding is somewhat misnamed as Megan is an MSU grad and Dan’s a University of Indiana grad! But they had their wedding in Ann Arbor, Michigan at St. Mary’s Student Parish and their reception at the Travis Pointe Country Club just outside Ann Arbor.
I’d met Megan and Dan two years ago at one of my favorite couple’s weddings. In fact you can see Megan in one of my photos on my facebook page! It’s always a bit easier when I’m working with couples who are not only familiar with my work, but have seen me work and know what they’re in for the day of their wedding.
The challenge for shooting a February wedding when couples want lots of outdoors shots is to find nice warm places so the rest of their wedding party won’t freeze to death. The bride and groom are usually fine with colder weather, but adrenaline only gets you so far! So with a lengthly list of “must have” locations and shots, we set off. We were able to take photos in the Nickels Arcade in Ann Arbor, The Michigan Union and a few at Conor O’Neill’s pub downtown.
At the reception hall, the Travis Pointe Country Club, my favorite DJ, Dan Nichols from Michigan-Wedding-DJ,arguably the best DJ in the Metro Detroit area.
I loved watching the joining of these two families. Almost all of the wedding party were relatives and they’re a close knit bunch!
Here are a couple of my favorite wedding photos from Megan & Dan’s Ann Arbor wedding…
