While I live in Howell, most of my weddings are in Metro Detroit. I made it my mission to research the best and brightest wedding vendors that are local to me. Livingston and Washtenaw County have amazing talent, and I was blown away by my hometown vendors. Teresa did the hair and makeup from Mi Amore Beauty in Howell. I can honestly say she is the very best in the business. Her makeup photographs flawlessly. Sandi from Ruby Slipper Design, Howell, created the most amazing floral decor that I have ever worked with. Her wreath, centerpiece, and boutique were like works of art. Kelly from Serradella Vintage, Howell, has the most mind-blowing collection of vintage pieces that you can imagine. Sandi and her have a new warehouse in Downtown Howell that is bursting at the seams with antique props, furniture, and tablescapes. She is a true game-changer in the industry, as are all of the vendors who participated. Lastly, Laura and Dan from Cottonwood Barn have restored the most beautiful barn in the country. It literally takes your breath away. They painstakingly rebuilt every piece of the historic barn and added beautiful antique elements. The chandelier alone is from a turn of the century ballroom in Miami!
Needless to say, I am so thankful for all of their help, whether it be with products, service, or simply their words of encouragement. I highly recommend collaborating with these incredibly talented and passionate professionals…they are seriously the best in the biz! I also have to give a big heartfelt THANK YOU to my models, Joel and Sarah Sherrard. They have been my photography muses for years. They truly understand how to be themselves in front of a camera, and Sarah trusts me when I coach her posing. They are both naturals and all around fantastic human beings:).
