Where we started…

This was a beautiful wedding at the Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak, with the reception at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham.  What a beautiful Bride!  And our groom and his groomsmen were up to taking some very fun shots!  They got ready at the beautiful Townsend Hotel, with their world-class sophistication and distinction in Birmingham, it was the perfect beginning to a fantastic day. 

The Service…

The wedding ceremony was held at the National Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak,.  It is one of the most beautiful churches in the Detroit Metropolitan Area.  The wedding mass is an very old tradition in the Catholic Church.  One that is full of meaning and symbolization.  I have listened to many over the years and every time I get some new insight into the deep meaning of the sacrament.  After Family photos, everyone headed back to the Townsend for the reception. 

The Party…

The family brought in Arabic Dancers. The couple entered the room under a canopy of swords and great fanfare. Lots of great toasts, touching dances, and lots of fun finished out the day! I love the dancing shots, the room was set up so well for the party. Her father shared some very personal and meaningful words in his toast. Everyone was mesmerized by the event! Thank you for the opportunity to photograph such a fantastic wedding.  None other than the outstanding Charles Horn Videography & DJ referred this couple to us.  We know him as Chuck Horn.

We can’t wait for our next Shrine of the Little Flower wedding!
