Adam & Aleesha | FireKeepers Casino Wedding | Battle Creek, Michigan
Adam & Aleesha got married at FireKeepers Casino in Battle Creek, Michigan. Sometimes the best part of being a Michigan Wedding Photographer is getting to go to fun locations that are iconic in this state! FireKeepers Casino was a blast to work at! The atmosphere was fun and exciting. The staff was so great to accommodate the last minute location change. Aleesha & Adam were supposed to get married elsewhere & have the reception at FireKeepers Casino, but when that didn't work out, they just had the whole day there!
Aleesha got ready in the BEAUTIFUL FireKeepers Casino Hotel. Her daughter, the maid of honor, was so sweet & helpful throughout the day. I loved Aleesha's classic, simple style. Her stunning shoes & pearls were beautiful accents to her lace dress.
Adam got ready at their home with his groomsmen & son. Adam is a quiet man, but seeing these photos, speak so much. He was so happy & smiling while my 2nd shooter captured him getting himself & son ready. Adam & Aleesha had gorgeous property to take some portraits on as well.
FireKeepers Casino was definitely busy on a Saturday! But it was so fun to see everyone smiling as they checked in and headed off to the casino. The wedding party was so great moving around the giant flame so we could avoid lots of guests in the background lol. How cute is that wee baby girl they had as their flower girl. Auntie Aleesha was giving all the smooches for that cutie!
Aleesha & her beautiful daughters!
& it was time for the vows to be exchanged! It was so sweet to not only watch Adam get teary eyed with tears of joy watching Aleesha walk down the aisle, but to see her daughters & best friend watch too. Aleesha's youngest was so sweet seeing her mom. Those tears were so genuine. Aleesha's oldest daughter was keeping an eye on Adam, smiling so kindly at him. They make a beautiful family. It was moving to see both daughters so happy.
This is probably a favorite of mine from the day. Everyone so happy & grateful to be together. LOVE this one!
It was so much fun to do their couple portraits. We sadly weren't allowed to take portraits at the slots, due to their policy, but they let us go on the floor which gave us a few great options. They stopped at Smoke 'n Fire for a drink. We then explored the floor and made our way to the beautiful shimmer wall & Dacey's Taphouse to use the beautiful wrap stairs. I love that Aleesha & Adam were up to venture around. We used the paintings in the halloway, the elevator, & the giant iconic flames for portrait backdrops. It was fun to be able to push my creativity with how each situation provided different lighting.
These two had beautiful romantic centerpieces & a gorgeous cake! Everyone was so much fun & kept the dancing going!
Aleesha & Adam,
