Upon arriving at the Hotel St. Regis Detroit, I went straight to the room where the groom and his groomsmen were supposed to be getting ready. After a bit of knocking on the door, I realized that these guys weren’t actually there!
Ahead of schedule, the groom and his groomsmen loosened up with a drink before the wedding ceremony.
Meanwhile, up in a club level suite at the Hotel St. Regis Detroit, the bride was just about ready to get into her wedding dress.
The groom’s mother and the nearest bridesmaid laced the bride into her wedding dress from The Dress Shop.
The groom’s sister stood nearby hoping to snap an Instax worthy moment of her soon to be sister-in-law.
In the lobby, the bride and groom wanted to say ‘hello’ before departing to say ‘I do’ at their wedding ceremony.
Things got emotional with the groom’s sister!
The bride and her bridesmaids arrived to the lakeside ceremony site in Saint Clair Shores, MI.
Shaded by a private wooden gazebo, the bride and her bridesmaids took in the lakeside summer air of Lake St. Clair.
With the bride tucked out of sight, the groom and his groomsmen arrived and were pinned with flowers by Emerald City Designs.
A lakeside wedding ceremony on Lake St. Clair was planned by Infinity and Ovation Yacht Charters.
The captain officiated the lakeside wedding ceremony with admiral efficiency.
The bride and groom were the last to board the Ovation Yacht for their wedding reception.
The Ovation Yacht departed on Lake St. Clair for a four hour wedding cruise reception.
An open bar on the mid-level of the Ovation Yacht had a gorgeous view.
The sun lowered as the bride casually greeted her friends and family.
Late summer evening views while cruising the Detroit River were breathtaking.
As the bride and groom shared their first dance, the Ovation Yacht cruised under the Ambassador Bride.
Once everyone earned their sea legs, the DJ had a little fun with the newlyweds.
Back at dockside, a friend who didn’t make the departure time dropped by with a wedding gift.
Out for the night, the bride and groom boarded the shuttle headed for the Hotel St. Regis Detroit.
