You couldn’t ask for a more unique soiree – a New Year’s Eve wedding inside of the Henry Ford Museum. Guests in black tie attire, dancing under the Spirit of St Louis, & mingling throughout a plethora of antique cars. A perfect evening topped off with a perfect kiss at midnight.
The whole day was a classy & beautiful affair. The bride & her bridesmaids got ready at the established Townsend Hotel in Downtown Birmingham, arguable Metro Detroit’s finest hotel. The bridal party looked like they walked off of a runway; they were all gorgeous. Donning simple black dresses, the served as the perfect compliment to Melissa’s stunning white dress.
Melissa & Matt were highschool sweethearts, having been together for over 10 years. Melissa, a salon owner & stylist, made sure that no detail was overlooked. They got married at Our Holy Name, another landmark of Birmingham Michigan. Their black-tie reception was held at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. A unique venue where guests can sample gourmet meats & hors d’oeuvres while roaming through a collection of American artifacts & classic cars. The dining area was located at the main atrium & was christened with a 40 foot Christmas tree. Candlelight gently illuminated the room & highlighted the warmth of the decor. The first dances had the perfect backdrop – The Spirit of St. Louis – dangling overhead. The guests partied until midnight, when many of them enthusiastically shared a kiss. At the clock struck 12:00, Matt & Melissa dipped, sharing a passionate embrace, which was frozen in time with a series of photos. Overall, it was one of the most elegant & memorable weddings I have ever shot.
