Once upon a time, this was my dream wedding. Modern yet romantic, black, white and gold. Waterfront in downtown Detroit. A stunning, all white floral design from PassionFlower. And then I started my job at SMP. And I ran into so many pretty weddings (vintage, destination, glam, elopements)  day after day, that my dream wedding changed hourly. But thanks to Alli McWhinney Photography, my first true love has been brought back into the picture, and I realize now I was a fool to leave my first love behind. You’ll see why it’s so stinking special in the full gallery, right here!

From the photographer… The couple, Chanae and George were married last summer on the waterfront in Detroit.  They wanted a very elegant and modern feel to their wedding day and chose a beautiful color pallet of black, white, and gold.  Chanae’s gorgeous Lazaro dress and Valentino shoes perfectly captured the feel of their day.  There were tons of glamorous details including lots of white florals, gold place settings and silverware, and of course gold couches in their custom lounge area.  The late night snacks and personalized wedding favors of individual bottles of Moet & Chandon for each guest really ended the night on a high note!
