What a better place for a vintage lover to get married at than an old Ford plant? This sweet summer wedding captured by Jill DeVries Photography was filled with charming old world details. We love how the paper goods floral print coordinated with the cake!
Megan grew up attending school at Academy of the Sacred Heart. The chapel at Academy of the Sacred Heart is very special to Megan as her parents were also married there. It was a dream to be married in a chapel with so many years of memories. We both love the city of Detroit, Will loves history, and Megan loves antiques and vintage details. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is the perfect Detroit Antique. It is filled with history and is an absolutely breathtaking space. We loved it instantly. Our favorite color is blue and we worked that in as often as possible. Our wedding planner named our wedding, “Blue Bells at Piquette”.
Years ago, when Will and I met, I fell in love with the Arlo Gown by Hayley Paige. When we got engaged, Bridal Couture of Birmingham had the dress for me to try on. It was the first dress I tried and I was in love with it. The dress was everything I had hoped it would be after looking at pictures for years. Will admired Daniel Day-Lewis’ tuxedo at the 2013 Oscars the moment he saw it. When the time came to celebrate his own wedding, Will worked with Ali, The Birmingham Tailor, to create a perfect, custom tuxedo drawing inspiration from the tuxedo he had seen years prior. An oversized Tom Ford bowtie completed the ensemble .
The most important part of the planning process was arranging a space that reflected the history of Detroit while blending in our favorite details. We wanted a memorable party for our loved ones! We splurged on our attire and honeymoon. We wanted to be sure we had ample time to come down from the high of the wedding so we chose to spend two weeks in France right after we got married, We skipped wedding favors as we rarely take them from the wedding we attend.
I love Cafe au Lait Dahlias and Anemones, which were the focal point of our bouquets and centerpieces. We also tried to bring in as much blue as possible, which was incorporated with Delphinium and Blue Thistle. The centerpieces were varied and included vintage glass bottles and milk glass with vintage books as well as larger round centerpieces on alternating tables.
Will and Megan loved seeing each other for the first time as Megan walked down the aisle with her dad. Having not done a first look, we were so happy to finally be able to see each other. Another favorite part of the day was going on the roof of the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant during the golden hour. We were able to dance and be together without the crowd of people. The view of the city of Detroit was magical. It was a special moment for both of us.

Stonepine Estate is a diverse 400 acre property in the heart of Carmel Valley, California. There are multiple venues on the estate, including a Chateau, equestrian center, vineyard, and garden. It was the Paddock House that provided the perfect charming location for our English Garden theme. Our design inspiration began with the mixture of dried & pressed flowers with fresh flowers to give multi layer dimension of the garden aspect. The billowing fabrics added texture to the soft and elegant designs. Gorgeous vintage rentals added to the eclectic mix of old world with new design.
