A spring garden wedding at the war memorial

May 20, 2024

A romantic springtime inspired garden wedding at the war memorial. Inspire by all the hues of spring and the beauty of spring. Adding some classic and vintage touches with a champagne colored vintage 1937 packard. This day was filled with lots of beauty and inspiration, romance and elegance. Starting with the a ceremony outside on war memorial’s lakeside lawn. The large inviting centerpieces welcome you as you walk down the floral lined aisle to take your seat. The arbor filled with thousands of beautiful spring colored roses of hues of peach, pink, yellow, and blue. Set an elegant and romantic backdrop for the ceremony along with the stairs and the war memorial building. The war memorial is an exceptional place like no other, with charming and elegant accommodations. The enchanting grounds and gardens at the war memorial are just one of my favorite spots for photos.This particular time of year there was a beautiful blooming tree where the couple sat to eat. The tablescape was placed with the blooming tree in back of it which enhanced the magic of these photos. The table filled with colorful flowers and dinnerware, of blue and tan tones. If your looking to elevate your wedding day into a luxury gathering, the war memorial venue would be the perfect place. It adds so much classic and timeless features and tons of splendor and comfort.

Our gorgeous bride wore a satin high slit and sexy off the shoulder gown with loose curls with half back for a romantic style. A Soft natural makeup look and pearl earing to pull the look together. The groom wore a soft tan spring colored suit with soft blue accents. The couple sat for some champagne and then danced through the blooming trees, before being whisked away in the vintage 1937 packard a classic for this area. Packards are well known in the Detroit area because they were built gere back in the day. This packard was like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It was the most beautiful color of Champagne with bright orange rims. It sparkled from a mile away. Definitely the best looking getaway car I have ever seen. If your thinking of getting married at The War memorial have a look below at all the inspiration. I highly recommend the War memorial venue at this time of year. Spring is perfect for all those blooms and flowers popping up. But I’m sure this venue looks good all summer long. Your dream wedding is waiting and I’d love to photograph it.
