We had a wonderful day for a wedding that started at the beautiful church at Orchard Lake St. Mary’s in Orchard Lake, MI.  The ceremony and reception were a heartfelt blend of Catholic and Indian traditions.  The reception was held at Plantera in West Bloomfield where we had time for romantics and bridal party shots before the reception started.  The sun lighting all the plants and flowers in the room was stunning.  We later went outside for sunset bridal portraits.
