I don’t know two other people who love Detroit more than Bob and Sara.  So, it’s fitting that they are my first real Detroit wedding couple. 

Bob took Sara to the Tiger’s game on their first date… and about a year or so later, he proposed to her at Comerica Park.  They love the Tiger’s, love the City, and love each other.  They were married downtown and had their reception at the Greektown Casino-Hotel.  What a beautiful celebration!  From an old English “D” ice sculpture and groom’s cake (D, not only represents Detroit, but Bob and Sara’s last initial), to props on the dance floor, they got down in the D!

It was a perfect day and a stellar party.   All images are from J.S Photography.  Here are some of my favorites.  Enjoy.

Nope.  Never ever considered a headtable backdrop until I looked at this pic.  This is where our headtable will be.  And, no, we don’t like the exit sign and doors.  Seriously, is it a big deal?  No.  But, will I look back and say I wish I would’ve spent the money to fix it.  Maybe. 

So, now I wonder how much does simple white drape cost?  And who can do this for us?  And, if it’s too expensive, can we do something ourselves? (I’m envisioning curtain rods and white drapes! Ha. )  We didn’t anticipate not liking the backdrop this much!   What do you think?  Worth the price of drape?  Help!

Oh, and this pic of the room doesn’t do it justice.  The ballroom is beautiful!

sorry for the censored chunk…backdrop

We want something simple like this white draping. 

Old Hollywood Glam –  I love that wedding theme.  It’s a perfect fit for a Detroit Casino reception!  Check out this AMAZING wedding gown a fellow soon-2-be Detroit Bride has chosen as The One!  I love it!  Miss L and I are both having our wedding receptions at the fabulous new Greektown Casino and Hotel one day apart!   And, we have very similar themes, but very different color schemes!  I can’t wait to steal a peek come mid-September!   Her and her beau were engaged on Christmas Day 2008!  Congrats.  And, I love the dress!  It’s so Audrey Hepburn, don’t ya think?

About Me

I love my guy. I love my town. I could have a torrid affair with every cake, cookie and cupcake I come across. I love sharing a good bottle wine with good people! And, I truly enjoy blogging about wedding finds. Which is why...

Change is Coming!
When planning my wedding I loved researching and stalking out Metro Detroit venues, vendors and other finds. Now that I'm married, I'd like to turn this blog into a Metro Detroit Wedding resource for all of you. So, change is coming soon!

Please share great venue, vendor and other finds with my by emailing me!
