Photographer: Rosy & Shaun Wedding Photography

 

THE RECEPTION

"We had a cocktail reception on the fifth floor and the main reception was on the rooftop, and we could see into Comerica Park and watch the Tigers game that was happening! We opted out of a seated dinner – we wanted our wedding to be more of a party – and this venue was absolutely perfect for creating that vibe. Guests helped themselves to a buffet via designated stations and mingled throughout the night."

THE BRIDESMAIDS

"The girls wore a two-piece look. I picked the skirt from Revelry and gave them the option of choosing a top. Turns out, they all loved this lace one from Express, and it was only $15. A super steal! My maid of honor – my sister – wore a sparkly belt from Etsy to set her apart."

THE FAVORS

"We set up a candy bar with our favorites: Starburst, licorice, caramel creams and Smarties. The sign read, 'Thank you for making our day so sweet, please take a bag and fill it with treats.'"

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT

"After the reception, the wedding party, my husband and I were walking back to Greektown Hotel when we came upon some street performers jamming out on buckets. We stopped and they cleared out a space for us to dance. It was so fun!" Check out the happy couple's full photo gallery below:
