“The Mike Staff team was nothing but amazing. From contacting us leading up to our big day, to getting all of our wedding photos and video back to us in a timely manner – we would highly recommend Mike Staff Productions to anyone! Everyone we met and came in contact with super nice and always friendly. We appreciate it all!” – Abby Haugh.

About Abby & Brett

“I’ve been a hairstylist at Andrew Marke salon for 10 years. Brett works at a company called H.H. Barnum as a account manager. We Have a 2 1/2 year old little boy named Easton who we both adore. We enjoy spending time with our families and watching how fast our little boy truly grows.”

“Brett and I met at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in downtown Detroit and the rest was history. Brett proposed on our son’s 1st birthdays “smash cake” photo shoot. The ring was in the middle of the cake in a box. The plan was for Easton to smash the cake and find it, but of course he wanted nothing to do with the cake and eventually Brett had to dig the ring out himself. It still was perfect and I wouldn’t change it for the world!”  (That ring sure cleaned up nice!)

Most Important Wedding Detail for Me Was…

“Growing up in my house, my family video taped everything. Every song and dance we learned, every holiday, every milestone we hit. One of my favorite pastimes it to look back on those videos from my childhood and relive those memories, hear my loved ones voices that have passed, and see the joy on everyone’s face. It was very important for me to have a Wedding Videographer capture our day. Rocky and the entire Mike Staff Productions team went above and beyond. Watching the video makes me so happy to see our special day once again. Also, there was so much I didn’t see throughout my day and I am so happy I got to experience all of the little details and moments I had missed.”

Our Wedding Vision

“The day was a fairytale. I had a vision for a wedding that portrayed rustic elegance and I was so happy with the end result. Hint, hint: Pinterest was a lot of help! The feel & look of our venue was everything I hoped for. One detail that truly gave our reception a special touch, the uplighting we booked from Mike Staff Productions! It was beautiful and really set the mood once the sun set.”

Our Reception

“Every moment was perfect but what we enjoyed most was dancing with family and friends. Everyone was there to celebrate us, our love and commitment to one another and having everyone together just brought us the greatest joy. When it came to our first dance, Brett & I had to compromise on which song to choose! See, my husband is a big country fan, me – not so much. We ultimately went with ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ but with a twist! The song is originally performed by Brett Young, but we had our Mike Staff Productions Wedding DJ, Mike, play the Boyce Avenue version. The lyrics were perfect.”

“DJ Mike had the dance floor packed all night. One moment that was a big hit and got everyone out of their seats was when my cousin Scott got on the microphone and sang and danced to ‘Baby Got Back’. It’s a family tradition that he does this performance at all the family weddings. He use to win Karaoke contests all the time doing that number. The photos are priceless.”

Our Wedding Photography

“Our wedding photographer, Craig was great all day long. He made all of us feel comfortable and relaxed. We all got to be ourselves and he just captured the moments as they happened naturally. Brett and almost all of his groomsman played college hockey together at Oakland University and they even got to fool around with there hockey sticks and have a good time during there photoshoot.”
