The day started at St. Peter Catholic Church in Mt. Clemens. St Peter’s is a beautiful church with a long aisle and plenty of stained glass. Capturing the ceremony was very important to Betsy and Michael, and I think some of the sweet in-between moments are some of my favorite.
After the ceremony, we took a few photos at the Mt. Clements Train Depot, which is one of my favorite spots on that side of town, and then stopped by Mike and Betsy’s home to say hi to their black lab Leia.
What I think I loved most about this Andiamo’s wedding was that Mike and Betsy spent essentially the whole day together. There wasn’t a first look or anything (the walk down the aisle wasn’t any less emotional for sure!) and from before the ceremony through the reception, they were around each other. I think it really adds to your memories of the day when you can both spend it together.
We arrived at Andiamo Banquet Center in Warren for the reception. It had been many many years since I had been inside at Andiamo Warren Banquet Center and it had recently been renovated — I was impressed with both the atmosphere and the food! The large round dance floor was filled with dancing guests as the night continued.
Mike and Betsy’s guests were so lovely. I had a great time photographing them, especially on the dance floor! We were treated to some polka dancing by the bride and her brothers, which was fabulous. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone polka in a long time! I was super impressed because polka dancing is hard!
This Andiamo’s wedding was full of fun, family, and so much joy. I don’t think Betsy stopped smiling! It was a beautiful wedding to end my fall season with.
