Irma and Dennis hired You’re The Bride on Valentine’s Day earlier this year for our Day-of Coordination service. Their wedding took place at St. Josaphat Catholic Church in Detroit. This is one of the most beautiful churches I have seen in a long time, probably because all of my weddings this summer have been outside. It has beautiful architecture and history! Jason from Ikonic Images filmed the ceremony for the couple. Irma kept Becca and I in suspense as she arrived later than she planned. Of course Dennis will never let her live that one down! Let me tell you she was worth the wait! Irma looked drop dead gorgeous when she stepped out of her limo. I was so excited to finally see her as a bride! Prior to the ceremony Becca, used her skills with a little dental floss from our emergency kit to tie the pew bows onto the pews. The pews were super thick and the clips that the florist supplied on the bows would just not fit around the pews. Weber’s Floral provided the beautiful flowers for the day.
It was a very windy day for a wedding but Irma and Dennis headed down to Belle Isle with Trillium Imaging after some shots at the church. A small luncheon reception of about 46 guests took place at TPC Michigan Golf Club in Dearborn. It was a lovely afternoon enjoyed by all guests. The food at this venue is amazing and we even had baked potatoes with all the fixings. They were delicious! I am keeping this place in mind as its the perfect setting for smaller weddings and showers.
The highlight of the afternoon was having singer Kimberly Fairchild serenade the guests while they enjoyed their lunch. I was able to arrange her services 2 days before the wedding. I am so glad she was available as she was definitely a special treat! The bride and groom are still singing her praises. We also can’t forget guitarist Tyler Vess. He is a dedicated vendor I must say as he went home twice before the reception started to get a better sound system.
