Finally, the second half of Lauren and Derek’s gorgeous summer wedding! I’ve had a bit of a break from blogging while caring for my littlest one following surgery. Pretty much everything has shifted to the background while she recovers. But… I’m so glad to be able to share Lauren and Derek’s reception details with you, at last! Their wedding at Hawk Hollow was so timeless and Lauren picked the perfect combination of light colors to compliment the décor and surroundings. Blush pink and gold were so fresh and beautiful together! You can view their ceremony in the post here.
We had time for a quick tour of Michigan State University’s campus, as Lauren and Derek are lifelong Spartans. Campus is stunning any time of year and offers an impeccable Lansing wedding photography backdrop. The landscape flows beautifully, with the dorms and halls offering timeless architecture. Their reception took place at none other than the Huntington Club in Spartan Stadium, overlooking the football field. It was so fitting for these two who began their life together at MSU! And the room… my goodness, it was absolutely breathtaking. The space generally has a very “Spartan” feel to it, which is the point if you are hosting your event there. However, most couples also want the room to feel true to their personality and in line with their wedding style. This was accomplished flawlessly with décor styling and floral details by Jamie and Emily of All Grand Events- you can find more of their amazing work here. Lauren and Derek’s reception felt very light, sophisticated and chic, thanks to All Grand Events. It was a joy to photograph.
Their guests were incredibly fun and their celebration of Lauren and Derek’s love was one that will not be forgotten! Their friends and family packed the floor for the entire evening and the energy was through the roof. Leaving that dancefloor was not recommended! 😉
This wedding was a true treat to capture and I wish Lauren and Derek every happiness in the world! To see more Lansing wedding photography, click here for our website! See you soon!
