So I've been waiting years to shoot at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. When you only do about 20 weddings a year and often times they are out of Metro Detroit there ends up just being so many places to have a wedding. The War Memorial really lived up to the expectation as well. The space yielded beautiful light during the ceremony and reception. The catering and service was wonderful, and it ended up to be just a great place to have a wedding in general. Wedding & Reception: The Grosse Pointe War Memorial Coordinator: Cheryl Armijo with the GPWM. Florist: Viviano Flower Shop String Quartet & DJ: Panache They did a great Job btw. Cake: Cakes our Specailty Rentals: Chiavari Chair Rentals Pre Ceremony: The Book Cadillac Detroit
So before the Ceremony Heather & Michael each got each a little something. Michael hooked it up with SONIC for all the girls and a new necklace for Heather. Note the sonic image below. Heather got michael an amazing watch. Lisa if you are reading this feel free to buy me one like this as well :)
More Gators fans! Seriously. Enough said. Heather also got each of bridesmaids custom pink flasks and they drank raspberry vodka to get the party started in the morning.
So this was the weekend of the Electronic music festival in Detroit and there was just all kinds of people roaming the streets. These guys gave Michael some marriage tips.
Spying on the guests fromt he 3rd floor at the GPWM.
Sequences are so nice.
After the wedding we did family pictures. I used those stacked chairs to get a little height. I just thought the scene was telling and interesting looking.
The way the shapes move your eye through this image is just amazing. It has such a strong color palette too. One of my favorites from the wedding for sure.
