Katrina and Nelson invited many guests from out of town who had never been to Detroit, so they wanted their wedding to show friends and family some of the history and culture of the city where they fell in love. This fun and casual wedding at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit was filled with warm-colored lanterns hanging from ceilings, a Detroit bus ride, and beautiful modern architecture, which perfectly represented the couple’s trendy style. Talented photographer Julie Pepin captured the stunning new moments the couple spent as husband and wife.
Katrina and Nelson
Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Detroit, Michigan
A lot of guests came from out of town and had never been to Detroit, so we used the wedding as a chance to show off some of the culture and history of the city. We wanted a wedding that was beautiful, but also fun and a little casual so our guests would feel comfortable to kick back and celebrate with us.
The walk down the aisle. We did a first look before the ceremony, but it didn’t take away from how emotional it was to see each other at the alter in front of all our loved ones.
The Couple Recommends:
The highlights of our wedding were our photographer and the band. Both were amazing and so professional to work with. In different ways, they were so important in creating and capturing the memories that we will never forget. We’re in love with our wedding photos and our guests still can’t stop talking about how much fun they had dancing the night away with the band.
