Loosely inspired by the royal wedding, this modern fairytale soiree was just as glamorous. The venue was the Grosse Pointe War Memorial, a mansion, built in 1910. Lots of natural light streamed in from the large windows, creating a bright and vivid atmosphere, reflecting the pink and rich mauve color palette. The bride was clothed in a traditional princess ball gown, inspired by the simplicity of the new duchess’ dress. Her bouquet was a beautiful cascading design featuring mauve, lavender, and ivory garden roses. Yellow gold accents, enhanced the soft blue of the Terrace Room where the ceremony was held. Softened even further with semi-circular end caps, the room appeared the shape of an oval. Gold wall sconces, chandeliers, and stunning herringbone wood floors brought elegant visions into a trendy and modern focus. The gardens and architecture overlooked Lake St. Clair which separates Michigan from Canada. Reception decor married traditional and modern pieces, making this elegant and simple venue design into a sparkling princess dream.
