In honor of the upcoming memorial day, we are featuring this Grosse Pointe War Memorial wedding inspiration shoot. The mansion was originally a home, but now serves as a memorial to honor war veterans and the service they have provided to the United States of America. The building’s rich history and beauty influenced each element of the design of this styled shoot.
“The time period especially was taken into consideration with the attire and vintage elements of the table design. Even the hair style was influenced with a beautiful soft up do.
After the location was selected, the color scheme of burgundy, peach and greens were chosen because of their classic yet modern romance feel. The outdoor space with a view of Lake St. Clare, lush gardens and green lawn acted as the perfect backdrop.
With its intricate details, the table used is an original piece that belongs to the memorial. The solid wood table displayed the peach table runner and unique table settings and crystal goblets filled with wine. To put the finishing touches on the table a centerpiece of flowers with crushed glitter ribbon that spills out over the side and two bouquets on the ends. Adoring the sides of the table are these natural wood cross back chairs.
One of my favorite elements was the flowers and especially the bride’s bouquet! With succulents and bold colors this bouquet is a show stopper! This elegant gown with its sweet heart neckline and long dramatic train was complemented by a long flowing peach bridesmaid dress with a key hole neck line and lace. After all of the elements were put together it created this spectacular styled shoot.” – Jenny May Photography
