Today’s classic glam wedding from Blaine Siesser Photography and The China Closet is a feast for the eyes! Every detail speaks to Shainna and John’s sweet romance and beautiful taste, from the delicate palette of white and blush, to the stunning reception at The Henry Ford. Shainna looked stunning in a two piece wedding dress in ivory silk, with a sparkling sweetheart bustier and a gorgeous pick up skirt. She chose accessories that echoed the sparkle of the crystal chandeliers at Lovett Hall, from the teardrops on her earrings and the crystals on her shoes – not to mention her stunning pear cut engagement ring! They heralded their wedding with a classic letter press invitation embossed with delicate gold scrollwork, but added a fun twist to their rehearsal dinner invite with a blush and gray color scheme and a blocky font paired with delicate script.
Shainna and John’s wedding festivities started at Saints Peter and Paul Jesuit Church in Detroit. The soaring basilica in the post-classical cathedral could not have been a more perfect place for them to say their vows. Their post-ceremony portraits beautifully captured the elegance of their bridal party – the gentlemen in black tie and the bridesmaids in floor -length blush gowns with delicate bouquets from Bellisario Florist. The flower girls looked equally charming in dresses embellished with flowers and pomanders of ivory flowers! The reception at historic Lovett Hall captured the timeless elegance of their wedding day, with vaulted ceilings and teak floors, crystal chandeliers glittering overhead. Their reception decor tied beautifully in to the colors of the ballroom, with soft ivory linens and florals, with dark Chiavari chairs against the floors. Pale pink roses and strands of blush pearls adorning the layers of their cake added warmth to the soft palette. No matter how gorgeous and sophisticated the wedding, though, there’s nothing like a dance party to help everyone cut loose! The Simone Vitale Band got everyone on the floor in their black tie best!
