Esra & Jerry's wedding was to be our first of the year for the 2017 season. We had learned that the couple first met a few years earlier, working as extras on the set of the Detroit filmed Batman movie "Justice League." We were honored that they commissioned us to photograph their continuing love story on their wedding day which included various personal touches that made their day very unique.  The couple included their beloved Akita dog "Gus" to walk down the aisle during the ceremony.  They even commemorated their first meeting by posing as Batman as they were introduced to their guests at dinner. 

The day began for Esra and the girls at the Antonino Salon in Birmingham, Michigan, just down the street from The Barber Pole, where Jerry was getting a fresh shave with the groomsmen. The ceremony and reception took place at the Planterra of West Bloomfield. Mike Staff Productions provided DJ and entertainment services and their beautiful wedding cake was crafted by Patisserie Parmentier.
