glamorous Detroit Athletic Club wedding
August was the best month because it was Bridget + Andrew’s glamorous Detroit Athletic club wedding month! Everything was perfect. Like one of those days where everything aligns perfectly and it was just pure love and magic.
My favorite moments were their beautiful first look (Andrew was crying on the steps anticipating seeing his bride), Bridget’s parents surprising them with a vintage Packard Hugo to ride around in (I especially love it because it was from my favorites at Motor City Vintage Rentals), Bridget’s sister’s tearful toast and finally their choreographed first dance. Such a memorable and beautiful day – thank you both so much for having me! xo, e

Briget’s favorite memory of the day:
Seeing Andrew for the first time that day… he was so emotional and I am so glad we did a first look. I’ll never forget that moment!
Andrew’s favorite memory of the day:
Walking into our reception and doing our first dance in front of all our family and friends. We’d taken dance lessons and practiced for months.
Wedding planning advice for newly engaged couples:
Enjoy every moment! It can feel stressful at times, but it goes by so quickly. Pick a few things that matter most to you, and don’t worry about the rest. Let others help you, especially as you get closer to the big day!
