Jillian and Mike were happily married on Saturday June 11th and the University of Michigan’s Museum of Art (UMMA). With newly renovated features, the Museum of Art’s Apse provided an excellent setting for the both the ceremony and dinner reception for the couple and their families. Their photographer Nicole Haley took the above pictures – the rest are from us!
As the bridal party processional began, Panache Entertainment’s String Quartet sounds filled the room. The ceremony included poems and reading excerpts from friends and family followed by “Chemistry”, a song performed by Kaitlin and Tyler composed specially for the couple.
Cocktail Hour took off in the Museum’s Form with Panache Entertainment’s Jazz Trio creating a great ambiance for guests along with Forte Belanger’s Catering as the newly married couple shared a private space.
While guest enjoyed their cocktails and refreshments, TwoFoot Creative, Forte Belanger and Bill Hamilton Designs, transformed the Museum Apse from the wedding ceremonial space to a wonderful banquet and reception space with a sweetheart table for the happy couple.
Twelve tables were all named with “Love” in twelve different languages. Upon completing dinner, the sweetheart table gave way to open up the dance floor where DJ Zac from Panache Entertainment helped the couple and guests dance the night away.
Upon exiting, the happy couple was escorted out of the Museum to their sedan with an aisle of bright sparklers held by guests to light up the night sky. Their videographer, Jamie, from 3rd Street Films, was there to capture it all! A beautiful ending for a beautiful wedding.
