A Special Moment in Time with Eliza and Mario
I first got to know the couple at one of their friend’s weddings in the Dearborn area. They were part of the bridal party to Dana and Tavi’s wedding and were a lot of fun to work with. I knew when they called me that we’d be a perfect fit.
The day started out really nice. The groomsmen got ready at the Sheraton Novi on Haggerty Road and the ladies got ready at Eliza’s parents’ home in Famington Hills. The groom and groomsmen were helping each other put on a tie and getting ready to go to the bride’s location. As the bride got ready, she was more than happy to show off her wedding dress and take a few shots with the girls. The ladies all wore light pink long gown dresses and the bride wore a beautiful white dress with visible lacing in the back.
When the men arrived at the home, it was a sentimental moment for everyone because this was the place where the couple first laid eyes on each other. The moment everybody was ready and dressed, they went into a limo together and were excited to have a Pentecostal wedding, in the Detroit area. It was a very big wedding with a lot of family and friends attending. The ceremony lasted about three hours and then everybody was invited to continue the wedding at Hellenic Cultural Center.
The reception actually was pretty short in comparison and by around 4pm most of their friends and family had left. The couple was actually happy about this, because it meant that the bridal party could go to the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House to celebrate with each other even more. This was the perfect chance to take some beautiful photos of everyone and to have a great photo session.
To give you an idea, the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House is a mansion located on 1100 Lake Shore Drive in Grosse Pointe Shores and is a beautiful location, especially for a recently married couple. The wedding florist, Emanuela Candrianu, actually went the extra mile and brought the couple a bunch of brightly colored balloons for the party. I can’t thank her enough for adding an extra visual appeal to the photographs and it really tied together the entire evening with everyone.
We had a lot of fun taking pictures of the bridal party outside and the ladies absolutely loved posing for the camera.
