michael and ann marie | grosse pointe war memorial wedding

When I met these two at their engagement shoot, I knew I could expect an incredibly amazing wedding day. And of course, they did deliver.  Over the top.  I mean really…fedora hats and parasols?  Horse drawn carriage? A gorgeous dress with an even more gorgeous bride inside of it?  A handsome groom with a killer personality?  Some of of the most beautiful locations in Michigan?  And on top of it all, they have the sweetest love for one another and I was thrilled beyond words to be apart of their day. Enjoy their day at the lovely Grosse Pointe War Memorial and Edsel and Eleanor Ford House.

XOXO! Congratulations Ann Marie and Michael!

    Jean, you have truly outdone yourself on this wedding!! I want to get married all over again just to have you shooting the wedding. Love, love, love the one of the bride laughing with the bridesmaids, the poses of the (HUGE!) wedding party with parasols on the breakwater (or whatever that is) and the one of the bride outside with her veil a-flying!! Gorgeous all!!

  3. Kristin Barbieri says:
