Alyssa & Alex’s Wedding at Packard Proving Grounds

Our Real Detroit Wedding: June 30, 2018

We absolutely will recommend Mike Staff Productions to our friends and family that are looking for video, photo, or other entertainment needs! Everyone that we spoke with was professional, helpful, and very kind. We communicated with our videographer, Tyler, a few days before our wedding, and he was easy to contact, quick to respond, and was very personable and friendly! He was fun and energetic on our wedding day, even in the 100 degree heat, and captured great footage of our day! – Happy Bride, Alyssa 

Our Love Story

Alex and I met in high school and started dating when we were 16 years old!! After graduating high school, we went to Albion College and graduated in 2014. After graduating from Albion College, we moved back to Metro Detroit, so Alex could attend Wayne State School of Medicine and I could pursue a nursing degree at Oakland University.
We knew that we wanted to get married, but I wasn’t quite sure when it would happen. Alex and I are both very active and adventurous. I was training for a long race, and Alex decided to join me for my last training run. We were approaching a big hill and Alex wanted to run up the hill, but I wanted to run around it. Being tired and stubborn, I didn’t listen to Alex and went my own way. He met up with me and pleaded with me to run up the hill, telling me that there was something I needed to see. I finally listened and followed him. When we got to the top of the hill, I saw that Alex had decorated the gazebo with beautiful tulle, lights, and flowers. There was even a tv set up that was playing a slideshow of pictures! He proposed, and I said yes!  

Our Wedding Video

To be totally honest, we weren’t sure that we were going to get a professional wedding videographer in the beginning of our wedding planning process. We weren’t sure we had room in the budget and I wasn’t sure that I would ever watch a video of our wedding. A lot of our friends and families encouraged us to look into a videographer, and after much thinking, we decided that we would like our ceremony and some footage getting ready and from the reception.
We started looking for someone for the job and I am so glad that we found Mike Staff Productions. We have beautiful video that shows so many of the details from our day. All the excitement and celebration of our wedding day made the day pass by so quickly- the video captured will always remind us of how perfect the day was from start to finish! We can watch our ceremony, listen to our vows, and see so many our of family and friends sharing in our special day. I love the amount of detail that the video incorporates! From views of the church, to Alex and the groomsmen getting ready, to the details on my dress, and all of the dancing at the reception, I felt like I was reliving our wedding day!

Our Wedding Memories

I wanted our wedding to be simple, romantic, and beautiful. My floral arrangements and bouquets had lots of greenery with light pink and blush flowers. The bridesmaids wore blush color dresses, and the groomsmen wore light grey suits.
Walking down the aisle, then hearing our vows were some of our favorite moments and taking pictures and video on the Dequindre Cut in Detroit! Even in the crazy heat (it was 100 degrees!), it was so fun to be with our best friends and enjoying the day!  Of course, dancing! Our dance floor was full the entire night!
