This September was a busy one for me; hence the fact I have not updated this blog in nearly 2 months! hahaha. So Like I was saying it was a busy September full of weddings and love! I was booked with a wedding a weekend for the first three weeks. One weekend "off" which I used to attend the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk in Ann Arbor Michigan with Jamie MacDonald of Olympus (http://jmacdonaldphoto.com) was our group leader. We'll talk about that day in another post though, this one is about weddings and all that good lovey dovey stuff ;) So lets kick this off!!!!!!
Brett & CathyThe love and friendship these two have will carry them throughout their marriage for years to come. ©2015 Sethingtons Creations That SmileThat smile, that dress, that wonderful moment. ©2015 Sethingtons Creations
This is Brett & Cathy. Brett and I go way back, we met from mutual friends years ago. I had not gotten the pleasure of meeting Cathy until the day of the wedding but I like her better than Brett ;) (sorry buddy she's cuter!) I took more of a documentry approach to this wedding and think I'm going to continue this approach because it was so much fun, I get to capture a ton of great moments and it is very similar to street photography. In the essences of street I decided to do this wedding in black and white, which is a little out of the norm but this wedding, the people in it and of course the bride and groom, all fit great for black and white.

Thank you Brett & Cathy in including me in your special day!
Chris & Ginjer had this wonderful outdoor wedding on waterfront (you'll see below) and roaring 20's themed to boot! The above image is from the Michigan Theater in Jackson Michigan (http://www.michigantheatre.org). This wedding was extra fun because I teamed up with Ashley Smith of Mashed media (http://www.mashedmedia.net).
Tears of JoyBy far one of my personal favorites of the year, not only in my wedding photography but over all! Thank you Ginjer! ©2015 Sethingtons Creations All These Pretty Ladies!Not only did these ladies looked gorgeous in their dresses but also their hair was rocking it! My lovely wife Aynee did the hair and make up for these lovely ladies. ©2015 Sethingtons Creations
Chris & Ginjers wedding was so cool being themed like it was and even the guests dressed up to theme as well!!!!! Speaking of themes another one is that Ashley and I also shot the next wedding together below!
Kayla & Christian's ceremony was celebrated on the grounds at Cascades Manor House (http://cascadesmanor.com) in Jackson Michigan on a warm sunny Saturday. This wedding boasted vintage cars, waterfront overlooking Cascades Park and fun people all in one location!!!!

Last but not least (these are actually in order of appearance) is Abigail & Nate! I thought I had all my weddings in the books for the year but a long time friend of mine Mike contacted me about his sisters wedding and were a bit jammed up on their wedding photographer. So not knowing anything going into it was slightly stressful but man I'm glad I said yes. Not only was the entire wedding party a blast but the wedding was so beautiful and in a church (Cascades Baptist church - http://www.cascadeschurch.com) I've never done a wedding in . Mark Miller of MMphotography (http://www.markmillerphotography1.com) assisted during the ceremony with me (Thanks brother!) and might I add he did a wonderful job! I'll share his awesome wide shot first :)
Ok let me introduce Abigail & Nate :) This beautiful couple was a blast to photograph! Their reception was held also at Cascades Manor house and was quite the party! :) On to some more images from their wedding day

So this wraps up my weddings of 2015 and I could honestly say I can't pick a favorite wedding!!! Thank you to all the brides & grooms (mostly the brides cause you know how guys are... lol ) for allowing me to capture your special day for you. May you all have long loving marriages with lots of laughs and memorable moments! Cheers.
Oh oh oh I can't forget to show you whats already coming next year right? Dj & Krystal will be getting married next year!!! Here's a couple from their engagement shoot. We did these in the far back of the Dalhem Center this late summer/fall.
Ok that's it for now!!!! Below are the links to all the locations for the venues and the other photographers I mentioned in this post. Winter is here so my creative projects will be kicking back up and this year is going to be AWESOME! Thanks again, Until next time. ~ Sethington.
