Definitely a family affair.  Aunts, Uncles and Nephews all involved in varying degrees along with friends and loved ones celebrating, with Jeff and Laura at the center of it all.  It was a wonderfully momentous day as Jeff and Laura were joined together in marriage.  Fun and lightheartedness is evident in their relationship and the crowd loved it.
We all had a blast at this wedding and All Star Productions wants to thank you for inviting us along as part of the crew.  God bless you, Jeff and Laura as you travel thru this life together.  Enjoy.





This wedding was blended together with love. From the handwritten personal vows spoken from the heart to the father of the bride, who not only gave his daughter away but officiated Kato and Rahul's stylish wedding at the beautiful Blue Dress Barn.  Not to mention it was Kato's Aunt Patti who performed live for the wedding ceremony.   It was a very family friendly event.  Congratulations Kato and Rahul,  Dale and I wish you many, many years of happiness together.

Samantha+Michael





There is just something special about a wedding that includes a musician playing bagpipes during the recessional.  Hearing the music that comes from bagpipes is strong, beautiful and touches the soul.  I think the kind of love that Samantha and Michael share can be described the same way.  Congratulations,  Samantha and Michael...may God bless you and give you many, many wonderful years of happiness.

A lovely wedding ceremony complete with personal vows that were both delightfully funny and sincere at the same time.  Collin and Cynthia's family and friends surrounded them with love as they recited their marriage vows to one another.  There is nothing like a room full of ballroom dancers at the reception to make for a great celebration and a memorable video!  Collin and Cynthia, we wish you many wonderful years of love and happiness and thank you for allowing us to share in your special day!

Lauren+Tim





A perfect summer day for a beautiful outdoor, rustic but chic barn wedding.  Lots of family and friends stood beside Lauren and Tim as they expressed their love for each and became husband and wife.  Even their beloved dog joined in the fun and was a member of the wedding party.  We wish Tim and Lauren many, many happy years together as they begin their new journey together as a married couple.  Thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day!

A beautiful warm summer day filled with wonderful traditions.  Petals from the flower girl were from bouquets that Jim had given Janell.  The tying of a red ribbon symbolizes unity in the Potawatomi custom. Delicious home made food, topped off with shortcake served with sweet Michigan strawberries and ice cream.  Congratulations Jim and Janell, Dale and I wish you much love and happiness as you begin your new journey together as husband and wife.  Enjoy.
