I officially got to meet Stephanie last week at her boudoir shoot the week before the wedding. She was surprising James with the photos and flew into Detroit early just so she could get these done in time for the wedding. Needless to say, I’ve never had a groom thank me for their wedding gift quite as profusely as James did! I hadn’t been back to the Whitney in downtown Detroit in several years since they’ve remodeled. I love the new brighter, non pepto bismol colored walls, but apparently many things remain antiquated; no working elevators, very inadequate air conditioning (it was over 90 degrees on the third floor where the ceremony took place) and their manager wasn’t responsive to the bride’s e-mails or calls and didn’t show up on the wedding day, much to their chagrin. That aside, the day of staff was very helpful and attentive and Stephanie was able to pull off her dream wedding which included a friend performing the ceremony who was ordained online and their wonderful place card markers which had a photo of every guest in a small photo holder/coaster. Very cool! Skye ran her photo booth in the “music room” and Stephanie and James provides a whole bunch of great hats and wigs to liven it up!
