The Whitney Detroit Wedding | Douglas and Ebony’s Detroit wedding
I am feeling extra blessed on this Tuesday Morning as I sit and scroll though Ebony and Douglas’ photos. As I reflect on the relationship I have built with these two amazing people I am reminded how lucky I am to do what I love and be able to make a living.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ebony and Douglas about a year and half before their wedding. When I first met them I felt a unique connection with BOTH of them. They were thoughtful and kind but the connection I felt seemed to be a deeper level. We talked about everything from The Whitney Detroit where they would be getting married. To our love of the city and circled back to life goals. I swear I could talk with these two all day!
When I photographed their Detroit Engagement session they expressed that they often feel “camera shy” and they may look “awkward”. I always find it funny when couples perceive themselves to be something they are truly are not. As we walked around the Detroit Public library that day we laughed, we joked but best, and I think most important of all, we made stunning photos!
On their wedding day I arrived early to meet Ebony at 97 Winder, which if you’re looking for a great place to stay in Detroit I strongly suggest you check it out! Ebony’s details were stunning. That dress, her hair and makeup <3 Yes!!!
We arrived at the Whitney Detroit around 9:00 am for their ceremony. The garden there is a perfect oasis within the big city. Their closest friends and family listened while Douglas and Ebony shared their vows. They awed as they had their first kiss as husband and wife and they cheered as they walked down the aisle. We shared an intimate brunch which was simply amazing. At one time or another each guest stood to share a story about these two, things from their high school teachers recalling how Douglas would talk so fondly of Ebony, or how driven they both were.
We concluded our day together with my favorite part of any wedding, a stunning couples session. We made our way back to the Detroit Public Library (where we had been for their engagement session). I can honestly say I could not be happier with how these photos came out. I am still in awe of what great people I am able to service. Cheers to Ebony and Douglas enjoy the start of this new chapter!
