If you’re looking at Ann Arbor wedding venues for a summer wedding, the Ann Arbor City Club is such a laid back, beautiful setting.
Andrea and Kyle had a first look near Andrea’s parents’ house to leave time for wedding party portraits in downtown Ann Arbor and group photos before the wedding ceremony on the lawn of the Ann Arbor City Club.
Since their photos were out of the way by that point, they were able to enjoy a relaxed private dinner together while their guests had cocktail hour outside. This gave them time to be together without the normal stresses of the wedding day, and by the time the reception began, they were ready to greet their guests, pose for photos with friends, and get out on the dance floor.
It’s an approach that I don’t get to see every day, but it was such a nice way to create a relaxed schedule for everyone, and Andrea and Kyle’s guests loved that I was there to take photos of them looking their best during cocktail hour.
This is a great example of a single photographer wedding—we put together a schedule that made it easy for me to take all of the photos without a second photographer.
