Grosse Pointe Academy Chapel Wedding and Grosse Pointe War Memorial Wedding Reception

I’m trying to keep my blogs to my very favorite shot of the day (along with a very select few). Here’s my favorite wedding photo from Ayesha and Karl’s wedding day. Their wedding took place at at the always beautiful Grosse Pointe Academy Chapel. Their reception was at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. We’re talking about a day that was planned out beautifully and which the weather didn’t cooperate (as often happens in winter months). So while we did see lots of limos pull up for photos, Ayesha and Karl were having their wedding reception in the main ballroom and we were able to shoot on the grounds and in the house as well (where it was a heck of a lot warmer). So if you’re planning a winter wedding and wondering where on earth you’ll go for wedding photos, consider the Grosse Pointe War Memorial… it’s pretty, it’s dry and it’s warm! I loved working with this warm, gracious couple. By the way… if you’re wondering what’s up with the photos of Karl’s Grandmother with her fingers in her ears, here’s the low down. For anyone  attending the wedding reception, it’s a great time to catch up with friends and family. But for some inexplicable reason, bands and DJs alike have decided that more is better in terms of volume. By here’s the thing. For anyone over, say 40 who started suffering from hearing loss thanks to over use of the Walkman in their teen years and/or anybody who’s starting to lose their hearing anyways, the increased volume is painful and will drive your guests away from the wedding reception faster than any other single reason! Many of the wedding guests are quite horse even after trying to talk over the volume of the noise in the reception venue generated by all the happy guests, let alone the “background” music many DJs want to blast! This wasn’t the case at this wedding, but as the band worked on adjusting their levels during their first few numbers, this was Grandma’s vote to turn it down!

    Why would a war memorial have wedding photography or even be considered a wedding venue? I don’t get it.ReplyCancel

    What i don’t understood is actually how you are not much more in demand for your wedding photography. You’re very intelligent and have unique photography styles.ReplyCancel
