Kris + Craig both worked at Kellogg Company when they met in the summer of 2015... and their wedding venue is so special because the first time they had a conversation, it was at the W.K. Kellogg Manor. Over the next 18 months the two worked on various projects together, and became friends... before long the two started dating, and fell in love in January 2017.
The day was full of gorgeous decor, beautiful moments, and surprise weather (uhm, hello Tornado), and through it all these two were just so happy to be surrounded by family and friends celebrating their love. We can't wait to share their film with you!
We arrived to Kris and Craig's home while the two got ready together, and though nontraditional, we adored this footage so much, it was so sweet and intimate, and such a unique way for them to sneak in time alone on the big day. Cheeky Strut did a phenomenal job with Kris' hair and make up and we loved how stunning she looked in her gown. Kelly Sweet Photography snapped a few photos, and then the two were off to W.K. Kellogg Manor in style thanks to Detroit Classic Cars.
These two had the rain clear up just in time for their outdoor ceremony overlooking Gull Lake, and after vowing to love one another the rest of their days in front of their children, family, and friends, they were off to enjoy cocktail hour! But just after we captured all of the beautiful details put in place by A Day in May Event Planning & Design, and all of the fabulous flowers by Damsel Floral, everyone was rushed into the basement because a tornado had just touched down across the lake!
That doesn't mean anything to the girls at A Day in May though, they stood through the rain making sure the reception space stayed clear, then they sent the musicians, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres to the basement with the guests, and luckily everything was missed by the windy storm!
Once our shooters, Josh and Jon, helped wipe down chairs and relight candles, all the guests came upstairs so that Kris and Craig could cut their amazing Cakabakery cake, hear toasts from loved ones, and then dance the night away with all their favorite people to the sounds provided by 2Bays DJs.
It was such an eventful day, and seeing Kris and Craig's cool, collected, calm, overflowing love was such an amazing thing to get to be a part of. We're so thankful you chose us to capture your big day. Congratulations on a lifetime together, you two!
