(Please ignore the “quality” of photos in this post – they’re from my camera phone. I wasn’t going to include them but the wedding was so amazing that I wanted my readers to get a visual of what I was seeing!)
This past Saturday I had the privilege of being involved as day-of coordinator for the wedding of an old friend from high school, Stephanie. What an AMAZING event it was!
Stephanie and her husband Sean were married in the historic Masonic Temple in Detroit. The venue was incredibly romantic, featuring rich colors, dark woods and the unmistakable feeling of a historic atmosphere. The décor of the ceremony was simple – white kissing balls on tall glass vases and an aisle highlighted by white petals. Let’s face it…when you’re in Masonic, you don’t NEED anything else!
The couple held their reception at the beautiful Roostertail, also in Detroit. The wedding was one of the more unique ones I’ve done because the couple had the entire building upstairs and down. They began the evening with drinks and appetizers upstairs, music from Elite Entertainment’s DJ George Munger, followed by an amazing dinner served by the Roostertail staff.
After dinner, the party moved downstairs to the lower area that was setup with a nightclub feel. George went downstairs with all of us, but there was also a full 9 piece band waiting to entertain guests! The band and DJ rotated playing music throughout the night and kept the dance floor hopping!
The bride and groom started the dancing with a very touching dance to Etta James’ At Last, highlighted by the floor raising up during their first dance (if you haven’t been to Roostertail, it’s a really cool feature on the downstairs dance floor!). The evening was full of fun, dancing and the AMAZING dessert table provided by the facility. Guests also enjoyed using Elite’s Photobooth to capture fun memories from the night.
So on this, almost one-week anniversary, I’d like to wish the new couple all the best! May you have years and years of a loving marriage and be very blessed in everything you do!
