On a cold winter Saturday, we were honored to be a part of the wedding of David + Karen. The entire celebration was held at the beautifully renovated Westin Book Cadillac in downtown Detroit. Many pieces of this day were not typical – the bride wore a stunning royal blue dress, the bride + groom’s children stood as their only bridal party members and the ceremony was officiated by the bride’s high school prom date! It was a day of reminiscing and new beginnings – a day full of excitement, anticipation and joy.
David + Karen met in high school. They were in choir together and shared many mutual friends. College plans took these two separate ways for years. They lived in different states, pursued separate professions and each had a few amazing children. It wasn’t until fate (or their high school homecoming game) brought them back together… And it was love at second sight ;) For the past three years, they have dated across state lines, but it was clear that they were meant to be. Last month, in a stellar venue, with their family and friends next to them; they committed the rest of their lives to each other. The ceremony was simple, but full of grace and love (and a few embarrassing stories from the high school friend who officiated ;)). Jonathan and I couldn’t stop talking about how awesome this day was through and through. David + Karen – THANK-YOU for inviting us into your story and allowing us to be a part of such a wonderful occasion. We are excited for this new chapter for you and wish you nothing but the best! Enjoy the preview of your AWESOME Detroit wedding!
