The Detroit Zoo~ Blair + Matthew ~ 6/10/2023

The Detroit Zoo was an incredible and different venue for Blair and Matthew to get married. They decided on the Penguin Conservatory for the ceremony as it held a very special memory for them. The sunny day created an opportunity for them to take beautiful pictures outside and a cooler ambiance for their ceremony with the penguins. 

The unusual event venue ended up looking absolutely gorgeous, thanks to all the creative decorations and special touches they included. Our personal favorites were adorable little penguin-themed details that were seamlessly woven into the wedding, bringing in a playful and one-of-a-kind vibe.

Their friends played a big part in making their wedding day even more magical. With their genuine enthusiasm and endless support, the whole atmosphere was like a swirl of enchantment. From sharing laughter to raising heartfelt toasts, their presence added an extra dose of happiness and turned the day into a memory that Blair and Matthew will forever hold dear.

Could you even dream up a more perfect setting for their special day? Surrounded by nature’s beauty, adorned with thoughtful details, and shared with cherished friends, their chosen venue truly set the stage for a wedding that will be talked about for years to come.

Their ceremony was incredibly special in the love and presence of their dearest friends and beloved family members. The collective warmth and joy in the air amplified the significance of the moment, creating a heartwarming atmosphere that encapsulated the true essence of togetherness and celebration.

We have a fond appreciation for intricate food shots that allow us to savor more of the delightful moments from this exquisite day.

Captured in this photograph are precious, intimate moments shared between the bride and groom. The sheer depth of their affection and boundless joy radiates, creating an image that vividly conveys the love they share.

Their exit with ribbon wands was a truly enchanting spectacle, it was a beautiful symbol of the couple’s journey into this new chapter of their lives, with the loving support of their family surrounding them every step of the way.
