I love weddings in all seasons, even when it’s cold, rainy, and windy like it was on Robert and Elizabeth’s Pier Park Grosse Pointe wedding last December 1st. The weird weather didn’t stop them from having literally the best day. In fact, from the first look to the sparkler exit, they couldn’t stop smiling!
After getting ready separately, they meet right on Lake St. Clair in a gazebo for a first look. Despite the crazy wind and Elizabeth’s veil blowing right off, it was an emotional moment to witness. They exchanged gifts after a few portraits, Elizabeth giving Robert a journal of letters she wrote to him while they were engaged and Robert giving her the necklace she would wear the rest of the day.
After some bridal party photos, we headed to the church for their candlelit ceremony. Is there anything more romantic than a candlelit ceremony? I’ve decided there isn’t. When the vows were exchanged and the license signed, everyone headed back to Pier Park for the reception.
Let me tell you, this Pier Park Grosse Pointe wedding was a PARTYYY. The dance floor was full all night long and I got some of my favorite dance floor photos ever. See below. The bride and groom did what I think brides and grooms should do: they partied with their people in the way they wanted to! The party was so intense, the bride’s hair went straight up into a top bun.
The night was capped off with a sparkler send-off and Robert told the guests that were left that it was the best day he’d ever had. That means you’re doing it right.
