Beth and Daniel had a gorgeous August wedding in Detroit this year and I am so happy I was able to be there to capture this gorgeous and joyful wedding. The two met while working on immigrant economic development initiatives at a meeting hosted by Beth’s work. While the two were out at an international music dance party with their other team members at the Garden Theater, Beth and Daniel officially met. No surprise, these two talked and danced all night – and the rest was history! Last October, after a camping trip, Daniel snuck off to their favorite coffee shops to set up a romantic proposal. He walked Beth down to the patio of the coffee shop afterwards where he proposed and then performed one of Beth’s favorite songs on the piano. Of course, she said yes!
It wasn’t long before the two began planning their special wedding day in Downtown Detroit. They chose to be married at the Eastern, a warehouse inspired venue downtown. Beth was incredibly detailed and organized while planning, which made their wedding day a dream for all of the vendors working!!! The newlyweds chose to have a first look to start their day together – and their bridal party joined them about 10 minutes later. We spent time walking around Downtown Detroit for portraits – and we even hopped on the People Mover!! The Cadillac Stop was perfect for a few portraits so we had a great time posing there.
Beth and Dan created a very bright, colorful and fun day for their guests. I loved that their bridal party was dressed in a variety of colors and their reception décor was also really colorful. The entire day just screamed “fun”! One of the cool things about their wedding day was the band. The Gabriel Brass Band introduced the bride into the ceremony and escorted them out of the ceremony. We all even had a little dance party in the parking lot! When I reviewed Beth and Dan’s questionnaire before their big day, it was clear they really just wanted their friends and family to have a great evening celebrating. During the reception, I’m not sure I ever saw Beth and Dan off the dance floor!! They picked an upbeat song for their first dance and spent weeks learning the dance in a class together. How sweet is that!?
Beth and Dan, congratulations! Your wedding day was truly so much fun and I had a great time celebrating you both! I wish you so much love and happiness! Your day was amazing and I hope it was everything you dreamed of!
