|Shannon is a bride after my own heart. I knew every detail of this day would be exquisite and I was right on! Our day began at the Shinola Hotell, where Shannon had reserved two of the best rooms in the building! One room was reserved for her getting ready with gorgeous open windows for tons of natural light and the other with an outdoor balcony where she and her bridesmaids could relax as they prepped for the day! I audibly gasped as I saw her details, including her beautiful gown with a lace bodice overlay. After she was ready and I finally made myself stop taking portraits in her hotel room, it was time for Shannon to see Cory, who looked ever-so-handsome, in the streets of Detroit. After some smiles, hugs and laughs, we shot portraits at the Detroit Public Library and then headed over to Sainte Anne parish de Detroit for the beautiful ceremony. One of my favorite moments of the day was between Shannon and her Dad for his own first look at his daughter at the church — there was not a dry eye in the room!
As if we already did not hit several amazing locations on this day, it was then time to head over to Meadow Brook hall for the reception. Some portraits of these two lovebirds (and their sweet pup!) and some group shots of a HUGE family took place in the front of the mansion prior to their grand entrance into the famous tent to celebrate with their family and friends. The room was set up to have an uber-swanky vibe, including an amazing floral backdrop made by the bride’s mother for the Photo Booth, which was one of my favorite details! I had the best time celebrating these two and wish them a lifetime of happiness.
Congrats, Shannon+Cory! xo
