The Colony Club is a gorgeous downtown Detroit wedding venue. With 4 floors to work with, you can have everything in one place without anyone getting bored! The gold accents make this space such an elegant choice, made better by the complimentary gold Chiavari chairs! Melissa & Ken had a wonderfully fun wedding day last summer. Enjoy!
Westin Book Cadillac
The couple got ready at the Westin Book Cadillac in downtown Detroit. I helped get everything in order for the first look, and then the wedding party set off with BAM Photo for pictures around Detroit!
Parsonage Events florals
The flowers were provided by Parsonage Events, and captured Melissa’s vision perfectly! She had handed us a photo that was meant for inspiration of the entire wedding design, and it truly came to life that day! She also had her bouquet preserved by CurlyArt, and the painting turned out beautifully.
Melissa & Ken opted to have the ceremony and reception both on the second floor – so we set tables on the opposite side of the room from the ceremony. Ceremony arrangements were later moved into different vases and reused for the reception tables. We flipped the space during cocktail hour, at which point guests all headed downstairs to the main floor.
Back up in the ballroom, guests found their escort cards and were seated at their tables for the grand entrance.
Melissa and I caught a sneak peak of the ballroom before anyone was allowed in. She was so happy with everything!
Later that night, a salsa instructor came to teach the crowd some dance moves. It was a packed floor all night! The Colony Club staff was fabulous to work with throughout. This absolutely remains a favorite downtown Detroit wedding venue. Congratulations Melissa & Ken!
