Atheneum Hotel Wedding Detroit

      They were standing at the point on Belle Isle with the Detroit Skyline in the background. Kyle handed Jessica a viewmaster. You know one of those old school photo viewers where the photos are on a disk and you look through the device to see the images. Kyle used a service called Image3D to make a custom reel. The last image on the reel said “Take my hand and walk with me unto the edge of nothing no matter where we go or what we see or who we meet together we’ll be until the end of time….Marry Me” 

      Jessica began the wedding day at the home she and Kyle would soon be sharing. A sign on the shelf said “Marry the one who gives you the same feeling you get when you see food coming at a restaurant” and I knew this couple was for real. Kyle and his guys got ready at the Atheneum hotel in Detroit which was also the location of their reception that would take place later in the day. 

      A first look was planned for behind the church and we had to pull an audible on the day of because it was too muddy. We settled for a location that I had scouted the week prior in Eastern Market and I’m so glad we did because the mirrored wall was the perfect backdrop for it. It also gave us time to take some bridal party photos in front of it before the ceremony began. 
      St. Josaphat Catholic Church, wow what an angelic location for a wedding. The long aisle, the architecture, the sound. It was wonderful witnessing Jessica and Kyle become husband and wife on that alter. 
      We took the bridal party back to the location where Kyle proposed on Belle Isle to capture some portraits and to remember the moment.  The reception was held at the Atheneum Hotel in downtown Detroit where the reception was lit warmly with string lights which made it feel like we were in an outdoor venue in the middle of November.
