Abby and Alkin’s Pine Knob Mansion wedding pivoted, like many others in 2020. What was going to be a full day at the Pine Knob Mansion turned into a part day there and the reception elsewhere!
I’ve known Abby a long time – we go way back to playing rec softball together when we were like 10! It was an absolute honor to be asked to shoot her and Alkin’s wedding. These two met at work at a bowling alley, which sounds like an absolutely fun place to start a romance. Their dog Ollie join us for their winter downtown Detroit engagement session. These two are so fun and so down to earth. I loved working with them!
It was truly the perfect September day for a Pine Knob Mansion wedding! The last weekend of September usually brings the last beautiful summer weather, and it’s one of my favorite weekends for a wedding.
What I loved most about the change of pace of this day was the small wedding party, small ceremony, and just overall intimate, laid back vibes. There’s something to be said about smaller weddings and how you can truly enjoy your day that way.
Best moment? Surely Abby’s first look with her dad. She is an only child and this was a special moment for their family.
