dante and olga

Here are some of my favorites from Dante and Olga's wedding. What an amazing day. I can't even begin to describe how much fun I had on this day. First it was one of my best friends (Ksenija) sisters getting married. BIG DAY! Second, it was in Detroit, a new place for me to shoot ... and around each corner was an awesome picture waiting to be taken.
Olga and Dante, thank you for including me in the celebration. It was such a joy to be a part of all the traditions and fun. You and your families sure know how to have a great time.

Isn't she gorgeous!!!

Here is Ksen, who had the best hair-do of the day! Loved it!

The Savic women. So beautiful!

Olga and her parents! Love you guys!

Mr. Dante Stella waiting patiently to see his bride!

Dante designed their invitations that had these very cool birds printed on them, which Olga had made into cuff links for her wedding gift to him. What an awesome idea.

What a beautiful church.

And the lovely couple. I love this one below. It is so them. So chill, so relaxed. Perfect.

And the Kolo, my favorite part! The Kolo is a traditional dance that takes place during the reception with Serbian music. Everyone dances around the room, hand in hand, in celebration of the new couple with songs of joy, praise, and love. It was my first Kolo, but not my last! It was hard for me not to dance while taking the pictures because it reminded me of the polka a little bit. And everyone knows how much I love a good polka dance!

Happy 100th Gram!!!!!!

HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What an awesome day. August 22nd marked my Grandma Reichert's 100th year! YIIIPPPPEEEEEEEE! She is an amazing woman and I am honored to be her granddaughter. We had a great time celebrating. My parents and my sister from Alaska came to Stevens Point to participate in the big day as well, which made it super fun.
We listened to loads of music from the accordian because Gram loves to sing and tap her toes to the beat! She wanted to dance with every hand she held!

Here are all my Grandma's kid! Julie, Dave, Joan, and Josile.

And my silly Dad!

Smiles and laughing all day!

And here is Gram with her 92 year old sister Tootie! What awesome genes, huh?! Hope I have some of their longevity coming my way.

Thank you Gram for being the best Grandmother ever. We are so lucky to have such an amazing lady like you in our lives. WE LOVE YOU!
