the inn at st. john's wedding: Sara & Matt

5.31.18 - weddings by Kristin G.

I love the excitement about the details that my brides share before their wedding day, and in Sara’s case, it was all about the dress. I mean, I get it. The dress is a huge deal and, in my opinion, it epitomizes the bride’s personality and totally sets the tone for the day. So, when I saw this gown hanging in the getting ready room, I then truly understood what all the commotion was about. Not only was this dress stunning (the layers, the print, the back beadwork!), but on Sara it was absolutely gorgeous. She met her very handsome groom for their first look not long afterwards and it was the perfect start to this already-incredible May wedding day. It does not seem like it’s that big of a deal, but with perfect Spring weather, outdoor portraits are so enjoyable and while I say this often, I truly could have held Sara + Matt hostage for hours (not to mention their killer wedding party and I adored the varying colors of the bridesmaids' dresses!). It was then time to head to the chapel for the heartfelt words that were spoken, as Matt’s childhood friend officiated their ceremony. There were smiles and a lot of laughter during the service and I do not say this often about a Catholic ceremony! The reception room inside the Atrium did not disappoint as Sara’s vision came to fruition with gorgeous florals by Roses are Red Events, greenery, a lovely cake by Kasi's Cakes, linens and gold details. Then, as a kicker, the always rocking Dan Rafferty Band had the dance floor packed even before the wedding party was introduced. I’m told this is common on the east coast, but we do not see this style often in Detroit, so I was all smiles as the energy in the room went through the roof as Sara + Matt made their grand entrance. As you can imagine, the night continued on with laughs during the toasts and I could barely make my way through that dance floor. It was a day to remember! A huge congrats goes out to this super fun bride+groom! xo
