A wonderful summer wedding. We started the day at the bride’s brother’s house where the bride and bridesmaids all got their hair and makeup done. My associate photographer met the guys at the groom’s house and did the typical pre-ceremony shots there. The ceremony was the the beautiful and majestic St Paul Catholic Church in Grosse Pointe Farms. After the ceremony the couple made time to go to a handful of locations before heading to the reception. We started at the DIA, Detroit Institute of Arts where we went to the east side and shot the bridal party on the steps. We then photographed the bride and groom together on the steps and at the gold doors. We had time for a nice relaxed session and I got some portraits of just the bride and some of the details. I Have a favorite area of the old warehouse district east of downtown where we found an old building painted red with concrete pillars and old garage doors. The wedding party were fantastic to work with and is seemed all had fun. From Detroit we went to the reception location, MacRay in Harrison Township, MI. We had a little bit of time before the reception where we took the bridal party to the lakefront for some final group shots. The upstairs room at MacRay was decorated beautifully and the Daddy daughter dance was a touching moment.
