Downtown Detroit was the backdrop for Robin + Michael's fabulous October wedding. From their preps at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel (where they also had their first look...), to the DIA for their photo/cinema session, to the Colony Club for their ceremony and reception - it was definitely a "Made in Detroit" wedding. The CC is one of our favorites and the ballroom looked absolutely beautiful with bursts of oranges, yellows, and reds - perfect for Robin + Michael's fall wedding! It was fun to work with our pals Jess + Nate from Jess + Nate Studios, as well as planner Pat Blackwell (who always does an amazing job!), and the band Chateau, who rocked the reception 'til it was time to go home! Congrats Robin + Michael, we had a blast hanging out with you on your special day! Here's the trailer for their upcoming film...
Robin and Michael wrote: "We have already watched it several times and it exceeded our expectations! We are so happy! The song choice was perfect - that was 'our song' while we were dating!! We can't wait to see the whole film. Thank you so much! It's so nice to see this as the day was a HUGE blur!"
The Mother of the Bride wrote: "The trailer is PERFECT!"
After receiving their finished film, R+M wrote: "Hi Lee and Lisa, we just finished watching the film...TWICE! It's exactly what we hoped for and more! Thank you for capturing our wedding day in such an amazing way! There were things in there we had no idea even happened! We love the music choices. We can't wait to show this to our kids many years from now. Thanks again - you were both a pleasure to work with!"
The Mother of the Bride also wrote: "WOW! I knew you would do an amazing job and that you did! It is perfect! What a very special keepsake for all of us. If you ever need a recommendation - not that your work doesn't speak for itself - please feel free to use me as one. Many, many thanks..."
