This Rattlesnake Club wedding was such a spectacular Detroit summer wedding. I had an absolute blast documenting it. Carolyn and Kyle’s day encompassed all the great Detroit vibes! We started out the day at The Westin Book Cadillac and ended at the Rattlesnake Club, with lots of awesome stops in between!
Carolyn and her bridesmaids got ready in the Grande Suite at the Westin Book Cadillac. While the guys were down the hall getting ready, I was soaking in all the wedding bliss with Carolyn. Everything was super adorable and sentimental! Carolyn wore her grandmother’s aquamarine ring as her “something blue.” It was the SWEETEST thing ever! And all of her sisters wore it on their wedding day as well. I always love little sentimental tidbits.
And the adorableness only continued to grow from there. During Carolyn and Kyle’s first look I could just feel the excitement bubbling over! They were both SO excited to see each other and it was awesome to document! First looks are one of my favorite times during the day because the couple has this incredibly special moment of meeting for the first time on their big day. They get to take a moment to breathe, to smile, to talk, to love. Their sweet first look was followed by frolocking through birds. It was hilarious!
Shift forward from funny to absolutely loving, these two were wed at the Rattlesnake Club in the outdoor courtyard. It was an outstanding outdoor ceremony with beautiful weather and even more beautiful people, inside and out!Between the ceremony and reception, the bridal party hopped on the trolley and the photographs continued! Carolyn and Kyle rocked their portraits; such a gorgeous couple! They looked stunning walking down the streets and just standing around with wind blown hair. Their windy photographs at the Illuminated mural and gorgeous portraits at the Detroit Institute of Arts are amazing! Oh and not to mention, that they had a hilarious bridal party! The groomsmen were TOO funny!
I could document the bridal party and couple all day long, just hanging out and loving on each other, but the day goes on. Their reception was held at the atrium in Rattlesnake Club. It was an enjoyable evening of beautiful toasts and fun dancing. Their family and friends loves dancing. It always makes wedding so much more fun when everyone is on the dance floor. They were surrounded by their loved ones on the dance floor all night long.
And these two fun loving souls just moved to Nashville! How COOL is that!?
Take a look at the totally rad Carolyn and Kyle!
