Jessica and Michael’s Wedding at Pelister Park

Our Wedding at Pelister Park: April 23, 2022

“Our overall experience was fantastic. They photographer and videographer were commutative and able to think quickly of a new location for wedding pictures. I will definitely recommend Mike Staff to others.” – Happy bride, Jessica

Our Love Story

On November 27, 2020, Michael proposed while at home with our kids. Michael had put the ring around our daughter’s necklace. It was such a special moment for our whole family!

We have known each other for many years through mutual friends. We actually dated for a short time many years ago before finding one another again. On April 23, 2015 we ran into each other at a Detroit Tigers baseball game. We always say it was God’s way of bringing us back together. From that day forward we were always talking if not together. Even with living in different cities and states we were always able to find a way to make things work.

Our Wedding Memories

I knew I wanted a romantic wedding with dark colors but with some sparkle. Our favorite moment from our wedding day was when we both looked at each other during dinner and said how nice it was having all of our favorite people all in one place. We simply loved our venue in Dearborn, MI.

Our Wedding Videography

Having a wedding video was very important to us because we wanted to relive our wedding day. I really love hearing the speeches again and seeing the happiness on everyone’s face.

Our Wedding Photography

My experience with our professional wedding photographers was wonderful. I would definitely recommend both ladies again. Having pictures was very important to us, especially having our 3 kids with us for some. The day goes by so quickly I want memories that last a lifetime through the pictures.

Wedding Advice for Future Couples

Look for the venue and all your vendors early it’s way less stressful. Remember you’re not alone in this so ask for help through the preparation process from family and friends. I hired a day of coordinator because I didn’t want to worry about how everything would turn out on the big day. I knew it was being taken care of.
