Eastern Market

Eastern Market, Detroit

“I wish I was a flame dancing in a candle
Lighting up your living room high on the mantle
I could bring some romance without any scandal
And then when you were done you’d just put me out”

Even as I write these words, I can hear the tune from the Avett Brothers gently rolling through the air.  Eastern Market was filled with all of Maria and Charlie’s friends and family when Charlie sang this sweet song to his new bride, and there were a million more little things that made the day incredibly special. The two have a deep respect for marriage, and so catching Charlie and Maria stealing adoring sideways glances at each other made the ceremony even more magical.  I imagine many in the room were reminiscing their own wedding day since it was just so sweet.  Or maybe that was just me.   And I can’t go one more line without obsessing some of the florals. Since Maria is one of Viviano’s own family members,  I expected nothing less than a jaw-dropping design.  But I don’t think I could ever have imagined something so perfectly matching Maria and Charlie.

Charlie and Maria, you are blessed, and I am honored to have photographed your beautiful day.
