Dax and Alexa – Detroit Institute of Arts Wedding

Dax and Alexa are about as “Detroit” as a couple from Chicago can get. I love Chicago, but I think it’s so cool this couple chose Detroit for their wedding, because they enjoy being in the D.
 
From the getting ready photos at the Crowne Plaza, to the guys hitting some highlights of the city before the wedding, to the beautiful ceremony at the DIA. Wow, what a whirlwind day and the best part was that the rain cleared out so we could capture it all.
 
Best wishes to a beautiful couple and their lifetime together!

Alexa and Dax are Chicago residents, but truly have a passion for Detroit. Their wedding will be in Detroit in 2016 and they came to “the D” for their e-session photos. We stopped at a few of their favorite spots in Detroit to do some photos. They are big fans of the Movement festival, so we had to stop by Hart Plaza for a few shots.

Stay tuned for more beautiful shots from their wedding day in 2016.

John and Jannine – Detroit and Troy Michigan Wedding Day

John and Jannine have been planning their big day for over a year. With a large family on both sides assisting and in attendance, their day turned out perfect.
 
We started the day at the Embassy Suites in Troy and then headed to Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Detroit. The ceremony was quick and beautiful and then the couple headed out to the streets of Detroit for some fun photos at Lafayette Coney Island and the Detroit Athletic Club.
 
The evenings festivities took place at San Marino Club in Troy. Jannine and John felt the love of thier families being sent their way as they progressed through the evening. Traditional Greek and Italian dances brought the celebrations full circle.
 
Best wishes John and Jannine!

Jennifer and Robert – Historic Trinity and Detroit Athletic Club Wedding

We last saw Jenny and Robert a couple months ago for their engagement session in Birmingham. The big day finally arrived and what a beautiful wedding they had.

The bride and groom both prepared for their day with their wedding party at the Detroit Athletic Club. It was then just down the street to Historic Trinity Lutheran Church for the beautiful ceremony. The church is another of Detroit’s hidden gems that everyone should visit at some point.

After the formalities were finished, it was off to the Detroit Riverwalk and Milliken State Park for some fun photos with the wedding party. A few more fun images were taken back at the beautiful Detroit Athletic Club prior to the celebration.

Great speeches and a great party helped the couple start their new lives together. The main dining room at the Detroit Athletic Club looked amazing for the party.

Best wishes to Robert and Jenny!

Kristen and Nick – Ann Arbor Marriott at Eagle Crest Wedding

It was a perfect day for an outdoor wedding. It definitely was a little warmer than when we last saw Nick and Kristen, in early December for their engagement session.
 
Kristen looked stunning walking down the aisle with her father, meeting a dapper looking Nick who had a huge smile on his face. The golf course, Eagle Crest, provided our backdrop for some fun and romantic photos of the happy couple. It was then off to the beautifully decorated tent for the evening celebration. Friends and family kept the dance floor full.
 
Congratulation Nick and Kristen!

Brandon and Kial – Engagement Session – Belle Isle Detroit

Trying to find a perfect day to photograph Brandon and Kial this winter hasn’t been the easiest. Snowstorms, cold and work schedules have all come into play. We finally picked a nice sunny day to meet up.

Our first stop was the Detroit Public Library. What a fantastic old structure that most people probably don’t even know about. After wandering the halls of the library, we headed out to Belle Isle for some outdoor fun.

Brandon and Kial are having their wedding reception at the Casino on the island, so we wanted to get some shots around the outside of the building. Although the sun was shining beautifully, the temps were down right frigid. I think we lasted about 1/2 hour outside before calling it a day.

I look forward to a beautiful fall setting on the island.

Scott and Heather’s Masonic Temple Wedding Day – Detroit

Scott and Heather chose Masonic Temple in Detroit for their wedding day. It’s such a fabulous building that still can host an elegant wedding. Both the bride and groom did their prep and getting ready at the historic structure. We then took each group around the building to get some unique backgrounds. It was then a 4:30 ceremony in the chapel at the Masonic. A beautiful reception in the ballroom then followed. A full dance floor capped off the evening. Best wishes to the happy couple.

Jason and Michelle – Belle Isle Engagment Session

Jason and Julie chose mid October and Belle Isle for their engagement session. The trees were amazingly beautiful, the sky could have cooperated a little more, but we still ended up with some wonderful images on a cool fall day. I can’t wait until their spring wedding for some more amazing images.

Julie and Ryan – Detroit Wedding | The Rattlesnake Club

Julie and Ryan live in Detroit and wanted a wedding that was based around what they love about the “D”. Julie got ready at the Marriott Ren Cen and had a room with a beautiful view of the river. What a relaxed and fun group of girls that were Julie’s bridesmaids.

We then travelled to the couple’s home in Corktown for the first look at some fun photos with Ryan and Julie. Everyone then headed to Dequindre Cut for a little more urban and rustic look with the entire wedding party.

Finally, The Rattlesnake Club became our final destination with some great images in the old Stroh’s complex around the Rattlesnake. Then at 5:00, Julie and Ryan became husband and wife and the party started.

We truly enjoyed our day with the happy couple. Best wishes and enjoy!

Julie and Jason – Dearborn and Detroit Wedding for the World Travellers

Julie and Jason met in Stuttgart, Germany a few years ago.  Jason is in the US Air Force and Julie was there working for the Department of Defense.  They made Dearborn and Detroit (Julie’s hometown) their home for the weekend to celebrate their wedding.  After a beautiful wedding at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Dearborn, we were off to do some fun photos around UM Dearborn’s campus, the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Riverwalk.  What a perfect day weather wise for the happy couple.  They then celebrated with friends and family into the evening at 707 East in the Greektown area.  Congratulations to the happy couple.
