Estate venues bring gravity and opulence to your special day. Especially if it’s the 110-room mansion of Matilda Dodge Wilson whose husband, yes, founded Dodge. The automotive industry is etched into the fabric of Detroit, so if you’re going to incorporate it, this is one classy way to do it. There’s a full gallery of lavish details like florals from Flourish Event Design, all through the lens of Blaine Siesser Photography.
