Joanna and Corey decided to come back from their warm weather home for a November wedding in Detroit Michigan. It made sense to come back for their wedding since both of their families live in Michigan. A November wedding in Michigan is always a risk. One day you can get sunshine and color. The next day you can get rain, snow, wind, sleet and who knows what else!
Our day started out early at the Westin Hotel in Southfield. This was our first ‘getting ready’ site and the site of the reception. The ladies had a nice suite to get ready in. The room had a lot of nice features, the best being a large bin of JimmyJohns sandwiches!
Corey and the guys were already done getting ready when I arrived. We went outside for a few shots including some shots of the groom in the Westin lobby. Then it was on to the church.
The wedding was at Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in downtown Detroit. This is one of the most beautiful churches in Detroit. The grounds are nearly as beautiful as the early 1900s architecture.
I’d be remiss in forgetting the great old watering hole/sports bar that we went to, The Old Shillelagh. This is an old neighborhood bar that we’ve been to 3 or 4 times to take photos.
Joanna and Corey had a great day at some superb locations. The great friends and family of the couple really made the day. Chris and I really enjoyed spending the day with this group. They were fun are really knew how to party. I hope you guys enjoy your photos. We enjoyed taking them!
