Allie and Greg’s wedding ceremony and reception took place at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan. This is a fabulous venue, tucked away about a mile from downtown Rochester, and offers a surprisingly serene and picturesque location along side of the Paint Creek River. It was a reunion of sorts for Allie, Greg and I because we had just photographed their engagement session at the same location during the middle of the winter months. It is always great to see the couple before their wedding and get to know them a little. As the wedding day approached, and knowing their personalities, I knew that it was going to be special!
Among the quality vendors that were selected for the wedding, Allie and Greg enlisted the multi-talented Emerald City Designs Team for their floral design, planning, coordinating, and decor rentals for both the beautifully decorated tent ceremony and reception. It was my first time working with Ann McQueen, who kept the day moving perfectly on schedule. For Allie’s hair and makeup, Allie selected the very popular Todd Skog of Birmingham’s Todd’s Room. For videography, it was terrific to be teamed up with Don and Joanne Pham, owners of one of Michigan’s finest video production company’s, Take One Productions.
