The Grosse Pointe Yacht Club is one of Detroit’s most extraordinary locations for a wedding. Sitting on the edge of Lake St. Claire, the views are breathtaking everywhere you look. A thoughtful couple like Ryan and Ashley deserved nothing short of this elegant place to tie the knot! Before their wedding, we talked about what was most important to them in regards to their wedding. Without hesitation, they both agreed they just wanted to spend as much time with their friends and family as they could.
On the morning of the wedding, the girls got ready at Detroit Foundation Hotel, and the guys prepared for the day at their home.
The ceremony took place at Saint Clare of Montefalco Parish. Both Ashley and Ryan carried details that represented family members that are dear to their hearts. Afterward, guests traveled a few miles to the Yacht Club.
Cocktail hour took place on the water which allowed for a sweet breeze from the lake. Ashley and Ryan attended cocktail hour (a great way to make sure that they got to have meaningful conversations with loved ones and guests). The atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable. We snuck out for a few more photos after dinner, and that was SO worth it. These two are just simply beautiful.
Later that evening, The Jerry Ross band kicked off their first dance. This group took advantage of the dance floor and showed off ALL the moves.
Congratulations, Ryan and Ashley!
