Heléne & Alex met in New York City but recently started a new adventure together in Detroit, MI. They got ready at the Inn on Ferry Street before their wedding. A ceremony was held on Wayne State’s campus inside the Mcgregor Center which was designed by world famous architect Minoru Yamasaki. That evening a reception was held at the historic Ford Model-T plant on Piquette St. It was a pleasure working with the team from Viva La Diva Events on this wedding.

Detroit Waterfront Wedding from Turquoise & Palm Photography

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!

Detroit Wedding from Heather Saunders Photography + Parsonage Events

When you have my job, you just have to deal with the fact that night in and night out, you are going to be dreaming of gorgeous weddings (not that it’s a bad thing). The moment I laid eyes on the first image of this soiree from Heather Saunders Photography, I was smitten, and knew I was in for a night or two of dreaming. But then I realized Parsonage Events was behind the absolutely stunning design (um, those flowers? I could die) AND TwoFoot Creative was the planner. Not to mention the beautiful sweets table from Sweet Heather Anne, because that would just be too much pretty. I think we’re all in for an afternoon of gallery perusing, and at least three weeks of wedded dreaming!

From the designer … As an event and floral designer, Naseem Ramin was a dream client come true. She came to our first meeting with a a stack of photos showing gorgeous, unconstructed bouquets and centerpieces. Other than her desire for big open blooms and a color palette of silver, raspberry, blush and hints of dark blue, she left the entire design up to Parsonage Events.

Because she was having her wedding and reception at The Whitney, one of Detroit’s beautiful and historical landmarks, we felt it appropriate to design with the age and style of the building in mind. The reception space spanned many rooms so we decided to use an eclectic mix of vintage or vintage style vessels. We used milk glass, pressed glass and an abundance of silver and gold mercury glass. Each arrangement was different but when you looked at the design together, it coordinated perfectly.

Parsonage Events used a beautiful mix of flowers including dahlias, garden roses, ranunculus and foliage like dusty miller and geranium leaves. Each of the boutonnieres were made up of a different floral element and the attendant’s bouquets were wrapped with different fabrics including grey and white chevron, raw silk and burlap.

Candle light was also very important to Nasseem. Parsonage Events filled every ledge and little nook with different shaped candle holders.

Lastly, Nasseem explained the importance of the pomegranate to her Middle Eastern culture. We incorporated full and sliced pomegranates in the long centerpiece of her beautiful head table.
