Today's wedding was all about friends, old and new.

So, way back in the day (which was a Wednesday) I worked for a lawn care company with Kevin. He was a technician and I was in sales. That's where this story starts. He met this girl named Taryn and when they decided it was time to get married, they called me. And I'm glad they did.

Their wedding brought me back to Arnaldo's Banquet & Conference Center in Riverview. Mario and his crew took care of me (as usual). You can't ask for a better staff.

The bride and groom also decided to use Patrick Abel of Special Moments Photography as their photographer. I've worked with Patrick one other time over the years but we've run in to each other at various venues around Metro-Detroit. Friends, old and new.

This was a great event on such a weird day. The day was only weird because the weather came in and knocked out power to everyone around the venue...including the hotel where all of the guests were staying. So, there was that. But, I did my best to keep folks posted and informed about what was going on.

The room was awesome. Arnaldo's provided the uplighting for the event. The colors: pink & turquoise. It doesn't get more neon than that. Hey, it was a nice change of pace from the standard colors I run into all the time. They had a photo booth, as well. And of course I slipped in for one or two...or four.

The special music is as follows:

"Raise Your Glass", "Get the Party Started" - Pink

"Scene 1: James Dean and Audrey Hepburn" - Sleeping with Sirens

"Butterfly Kisses" - Bob Carlisle

"A Mothers Song" - T. Carter

"Stupid Girls" - Pink
