“Getting married at the Mill Race Village”, Sarah wrote, “And reception at Laurel Manor”, she added. It was exactly the first day of Summer when Sarah emailed that she was getting married on August 4 and she needed a photographer from 4:00 to 10:00 pm. It was a short-noticed correspondence but fortunately, I was open on that day.
After a couple of days, she responded to my email. ” I want to meet”, she wrote. I noticed from her work email that she was not too far from me so I suggested that we meet at Twelve Oaks. It’s easier to meet couples there than to explain where I lived.
From what I picked up during our conversation, they both had grown up children. They were looking for someone one who was laid back and just document their day. The next day, I became their wedding photographer!
Sarah plotted out my trek throughout the day. A Hampton Inn that was at the corner of Haggerty and Eight Mile Road was my first stop. She wanted me to capture her and her bridesmaids getting ready. Not long after that, we headed off to the Mill Race Village so that they can both see each other for the for time.
I don’t know how or when they met but from their emotional “first-look” photos, it felt like they were soulmate all along. Two souls who finally met and decided to spend the rest of their lives as one.
