Last Saturday, March 17th, my son Timothy and Becky Winka got married. We had been looking forward to this special day for a very long time. Becky is a fantastic person and fits perfectly into our family.
We started off the festivities with the Rehearsal Dinner at Maggie’s Lunch Box. Maggies is located in the heart of Fenton’s industrial and business center. This adorable cafe/bakery outdid themselves on the food. The food was absolutely delicious. We played an adorable slide show of Timothy and Becky growing up that always brings tears to a mom’s eyes.
Saturday the skies opened up and let loose with a ferocious rain storm. I have not seen rain like that in a long time. I knew right away that our wedding photographer, Susan Jackson, would not be able to take the wedding party anywhere for outdoor photos. So off to Andre’s West everyone headed for indoor photos. We were very pleased with Susan. Not only is she a fantastic photographer but she is also a good friend. She was so kind and nice to everyone and a trooper for putting up with all the Nordmanns.
Andre’s West was very accommodating. The reception hall was beautiful. And Becky’s table decorations added a nice personal touch. The hostess of the evening was very gratuitous and helpful. And you can always count on Andre’s for a good meal. My husband John was Timothy’s best man and outdid himself with a beautiful toast to the bride and groom.
Millenium Productions was the DJ service for the evening. The music was terrific and was enjoyed by everyone. The dance floor was always filled with guests partying the night away. I will say that my grandson Cameron was the best dancer of the evening.
Nordmann Productions was the videographer. That is Timothy’s videography company specializing in weddings, corporate and sporting events. Phil Betts was the videographer, filling in for Timothy who was busy getting married. Phil was so kind to be around and was very unobtrusive. We appreciated that he did not use any blaring lights. We haven’t seen the video yet but I know it will be amazing.
If you are interested in viewing all of the images of the evening go Nordmann Photography’s web site. Go to Client Log In and the Event is Nordmann and the password is BT. I am warning you there are a lot of photos to view. Here are a few of my favorites.Read More »
I am so overwhelmed with social media. It has taken over my life. Facebook is all consuming but I love to keep up with my friends, family and customers to see what they are up to. I don’t post much on my personal Facebook page – just when inspired to do so – but will comment or “like” other friends comments. But our business pages – now that is another story. We have our business page Nordmann Photography that has to be attended to daily for our high school senior photography. We have another Facebook page Nordmann Portraits reserved mainly for children’s photography and family portraiture. Then we have Nordmann Weddings dedicated to all of our future and past brides. For the people wanting video we have Nordmann Video. Ok and I know this is getting ridiculous but how can we forget about our Sports Photography – Nordmann Sports. Oh and we can’t forget our latest endeavor and recent facebook site for the women who want to bring the sexy back into their lives Boudoir Black Diamond.
So I think I created a monster with all of these different pages but my justification is that we do have different audiences. I never want to bore people with Boudoir Photography if they were just interested in High School Senior Photography. Would a bride be interested in sports photography over wedding photography? So not only am I a photographer but also a social media designer and writer. Wait – I never signed up for this job as a social media guru. All I ever wanted to be was a photographer.
Stay tuned for tomorrows blog. I will be talking more about social media and time wasters such as Twitter, Instagram and now Pinterest. And guess who is wasting her time with all the above?Read More »
