BOUTIQUE WEDDINGS

Maybe you found a beautiful quaint venue somewhere in the middle of Michigan and you can't wait to walk down the pine needle layered isle, lit with candles, witnessed by the closest circle of the most important people in your lives.

Priscilla & Jake

Priscilla and Jake married in their backyard on a chilly October evening surrounded by their closest circle. They decorated with bohemian accents, triangle ceremony altar and red and sage florals. Their table scapes were out of a dream. Their baby duck made a special appearance for a quick photo session with the newly wed couple.  

Becca & Adam

The majestic bookshelf served as a background for Becca and Adam’s living room elopement ceremony, while the couple zoomed their families to witness it from afar. Adam, the groom, made their wedding rings out of a piece of a fence from a hotel in Buffalo. The couple ordered their favorite ramen for everyone present, so we feasted on a perfectly nourishing meal while the Arctic front rolled into Detroit.  

Jayme & Peter

Jayme and Peter, two wanderlusts and adventurers got married in the a backyard of a log cabin in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, near Lake Michigamme. Jayme wore a gorgeous  silver BHLDN wedding dress that perfectly fit with her bohemian personality. The whimsical woodsy property was beautifully decorated with twinkle lights, candlesticks and rustic accents. The dinner was catered al fresco. 

Katina & Blake

Katina and Blake, two lovebirds with European roots, got married in the gorgeous setting of Bloomfield's Planterra Conservatory. The lush green space was beautifully decorated with candlesticks and flowers. They chose a dual Greek Orthodox and Jewish ceremony to honor their heritage, witnessed by a couple of hundred guests. 

Julie & Michael

Julie and Michael married in a gorgeous Greek Orthodox church in the Detroit suburbs. Michigan winter was in full effect, so we used their reception venue for elegant portrait session with a backdrop of a vintage car and mid-century design. Michael's Middle-Eastern roots brought some vibrant beats to the late night dancing.  

Mary & Brett

Mary and Brett said their vows under majestic trees at Red Riding Hood Stables in Holly, Michigan. The grounds of the local stables were tastefully decorated with wooden furniture, hanging glass chandeliers and vintage sofas. Their summer wedding was a perfect elegant event with unique touches.
