DESIGN / atmosphere / Visionthis formal wedding at the Country Club in Detroit gave life to a unique garden party inspired by the concept of English estates. The day offered a timeless feeling as the soft colors of sky blue and bright Orange crossed its color history. Originally from Detroit, Christine wanted to make sure she incorporated historical elements of the city on her wedding day. They opted for a traditional Catholic ceremony in a prominent cathedral in the city center. The Gothic Revival-style architecture offered elegant checkered marble tiles for the procession, as well as plenty of space for the couple to pose for photos afterwards. A simple tower of champagne opened the reception on a blue tablecloth. Whimsical floral motifs cascade along the tables, the aisles and around the entrance to the reception tent in a sea of Orange. The evening was airy and bright, with sheets, chairs and decor all worked together in neutral cream tones reminiscent of an afternoon in the English countryside.

Proposal story John and Christine first saw each other on the other side of the Bar during a night out in Chicago. The two struck up a conversation by shouting over the house music. That evening, they exchanged numbers to arrange their first official date a few weeks after. As their relationship blossomed, John and Christine went on vacation to Miami, a break from the Chicago winter. John proposed on this trip to the beach at sunset.

Christine and John also gave a toast to their guests with a tower of champagne. After dinner, they served espresso Martinis.

Flowers and decor “we were inspired by the grounds of the Detroit Country Club, the gardens and the greenery that make nature so beautiful. Christine and John loved the idea of a romantic, garden-centric, whimsical and classic outdoor party. They were inspired by many English country/estate weddings and classic and timeless weddings that they have seen before. Originally from Grosse Pointe, MICHIGAN, Christine wanted to incorporate historical Detroit elements into the wedding celebrations, including the cathedral, the classic car, the venue, the welcome party venue, the rehearsal dinner venue and much more. The flowers were awesome, creating the perfect romantic and warm garden-style atmosphere that matched the bride and groom’s dreams.”

Wedding cake Christian and John served a tiered vanilla cake with a lemon and raspberry mousse. The cake was decorated with fresh flowers and the couple’s monogram. The cake was provided by the Country Club of Detroit.
