Winter Shinola Hotel Wedding in Downtown Detroit, Michigan provided by Kari Dawson, top-rated Detroit wedding photographer, and her team.
If you want to the insider secret on all things Detroit: cocktails, food, entertainment, etc. then Mike and Bailey are the go to for recommendations. Hosting their wedding at the Shinola Hotel in downtown Detroit was the perfect fit for them. They used their wedding website to inform all of their location and traveling guests on the best spaces and places to visit while in town.
Their wedding itself was simple yet oh so glamorous and truly magazine worthy. In 2021 my team and I fell in love with black floor length bridesmaid dresses which is exactly what Bailey’s sisters wore. The bond of these lovely ladies is fierce and makes me so excited as my family wanders into the weeds of wedding planning this year and next. Mike and his two best guys were looking perfect buttoned up in classic black tuxedos. The florals were unstructured with a pop of color and the perfect final touch.
You might remember Mike and Bailey’s story from their Engagement Session. Bailey and Mike met for their first date. Scratch that. Bailey met Mike at BESA for a job interview. The job interview turned first date. Turned first kiss. Turned she got the job but turned it down and has been with Mike ever since. Their secret? The never ending abundance of laughter they share together. The way they look at each other will make your heart melt. And to make their day even better… Roger. Roger is the handsomest pup who absolutely stole the show.
Thank you Bailey and Mike for inviting me along the journey and trusting me with your memories! xoxo
