DAC Wedding

Detroit Athletic Club DAC Wedding

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

If Ianna and Cameron look familiar, it is probably because you have seen them sprinkled throughout my website.  Sure, they are both aesthetically pleasing, but that isn’t what makes them attractive.  The instant chemistry that occurs when they are in each other’s presence makes these two so photogenic. Toss in some of Detroit’s best wedding venues, and they are guaranteed to have a beautiful wedding experience.  Ianna had a DAC wedding. 

Cameron and Ianna had one of the most fun, elegant, and memorable weddings of the season so far.  Their day started off in the suites of the Detroit Athletic Club, where Ianna’s mermaid Vera Wang dress hung like a masterpiece of art.  Ianna excitedly got dressed and ready for her first look with some help from her bridal party and family.  At the same time, Cameron and his groomsmen got ready for their DAC wedding in an executive suite.  With the Olympics on in the background and jokes and jabs flying between them, Cameron donned a tailored tuxedo the Rolex and bowtie his grandfather wore on his wedding day.  These two articles have been passed down generation to generation for the groom to wear on his wedding day.


Cameron was waiting for Ianna in the Reading Room.  Their first look was soft and intimate.  The golden wallpaper and framed art served as the perfect backdrop for classic portraiture of Cameron and Ianna. Following their First Look, we took the entire bridal party to the Casino on Detroit’s Belle Isle.  Belle Isle is quickly becoming one of Detroit’s hottest locations for wedding photography.  With a clear view of the Detroit skyline on the south end of the island and various pieces of architecture to use as backdrops, Belle Isle has a lot of offer in terms of wedding photography.

After Belle Isle, was drove into downtown where guests were arriving at St. Peter and Paul’s Catholic Church.  Personally, this is my favorite church in Detroit to photograph in.  The long center aisle is illuminated by rows of tall windows, offering me an opportunity to create a series of shots as the father-of-the-bride and the bride herself walk down the aisle.  True to form, Ianna and Cameron shared some laughable moments even during their ceremony.  (The priest did crack a memorable joke on Ianna’s behalf.)

Guests were christened with live music, memorable toasts, and the collaborative love of family and friends following the ceremony.  You couldn’t ask for a better day.  BTW Photography specializes in DAC weddings
