Our 2018 weddings are just blowing us out of the water! We returned to the lovely Royal Park Hotel for David and Lauren’s wedding late last month. It’s one of our favorite Metro Detroit wedding venues (read why we love it here!), and every time we photograph a wedding or event here, we love how the photos come out. Royal Park Hotel wedding photography is not only lovely and elegant, but the little touches that this venue provides as well as the beautiful grounds make it the perfect spot for a romantic wedding.
We started this warm spring day in Lauren’s bridal suite. She and her bridesmaids finished up getting ready, and our stunning bride slipped into her mermaid style lace dress and cathedral veil. Her entire bridal look was soft and romantic – and absolutely breathtaking! After their sweet first look, we took David and Lauren around the grounds of the hotel, taking photos of the two of them as we went. The weather felt more like July than May, but we were able to get some amazing portraits! We also took some photos with Lauren’s son; these three make an adorable family! One of our favorite parts of the day was seeing how well David got along with Lauren’s son – for a minute we thought we had gotten it wrong and he was David’s son! Either way, we loved how much David and Lauren involved him in the day, from the ceremony and vows, down to the first dance and cake cutting!
Take a look at some of these photos from the first part of the day!
It’s time to get married! The conservatory is one of our absolute favorite wedding ceremony venues. The glass walls and ceiling provide natural light, and the chandelier, fountain, and soft curtains make the room cozy and welcoming. These two had the sweetest ceremony and a beautiful huppah! All their decor choices made for a truly beautiful wedding ceremony.
As we move to the reception, the day only gets better. We can’t even describe how beautiful the ballroom was – just take a look at the photos! One thing we love about Royal Park Hotel Wedding photography is that the ballroom can transform into any vision. We have seen this very room be everything from hot pink, to an icy blue, to soft yellows. Lauren and David created a romantic wonderland with wild greenery, pastel florals, and gold touches lit by candlelight. Everything was beautifully done!
Thank you for such and amazing day, you two!
