Wedding at Detroit’s Sweetest Heart of Mary
When I met with Ryan and Katelyn, Katelyn was stuck in traffic, leaving Ryan and I to make small talk. We quickly found common ground – both of us work in the field of education – and swapped stories over coffee. There was something unique in the way that Ryan and I clicked, yet neither of us could put our finger on it. Regardless, when Katelyn arrived, the topic turned to weddings, photography, and the details of their big day. Not only did Katelyn have the bigger things planned out – ceremony at Detroit’s Sweetest Heart of Mary, reception at Penna’s of Sterling – but she also had all of the color schemes, details, and unique elements of the wedding underway as well. Pinterest and Etsy were inspirations and everything she touched was personalized and glam. As the meeting wrapped up, I mentioned to Ryan, “Man, I feel like I know you from somewhere.” He agreed and moments later we made the connection…we went to high school together nearly 15 years ago. This kicked off a whole new round of talks, laughs, and reminiscing. Wedding at Detroit’s Sweetest Heart of Mary
The wedding day was perfect. Ryan and Katelyn were surrounded by friends and family both in their bridal party and at the ceremony and reception. Everyone who was there had a long history with them. Some of the groomsmen were friends from grade school, many from high school. One even serenaded them for their first dance. Katelyn’s girlfriends and family surrounded her throughout the day and even helped make all of the centerpieces and decorations for the day – from the handmade signs to the personalized champagne flutes. Overall, the day was beautiful, memorable, and truly a unique affair. Wedding at Detroit’s Sweetest Heart of Mary
