Melissa and Matt had a beautiful New Years Eve Dearborn, MI wedding at the Henry Ford Museum. It is a fabulous paradigm of an elegant wedding in the winter utilizing a gorgeous venue for the backdrop instead of braving the frigid Midwest winter temperatures to be outdoors for photographs.
“You couldn’t ask for a more unique soiree – a New Year’s Eve wedding inside of the Henry Ford Museum. Guests in black tie attire, dancing under the Spirit of St Louis, and mingling throughout a plethora of antique cars. A perfect evening topped off with a perfect kiss at midnight.
The whole day was a classy and beautiful affair. The bride and her bridesmaids got ready at the established Townsend Hotel in Downtown Birmingham, arguable Metro Detroit’s finest hotel. The bridal party looked like they walked off of a runway; they were all gorgeous. Donning simple black dresses, the served as the perfect compliment to Melissa’s stunning white dress.
Melissa and Matt were high school sweethearts, having been together for over 10 years. Melissa, a salon owner and stylist, made sure that no detail was overlooked. They got married at Our Holy Name, another landmark of Birmingham Michigan. Their black-tie reception was held at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. A unique venue where guests can sample gourmet meats and hors d’oeuvres while roaming through a collection of American artifacts and classic cars. The dining area was located at the main atrium and was christened with a 40 foot Christmas tree. Candlelight gently illuminated the room and highlighted the warmth of the decor. The first dances had the perfect backdrop – The Spirit of St. Louis – dangling overhead. The guests partied until midnight, when many of them enthusiastically shared a kiss. At the clock struck 12:00, Matt and Melissa dipped, sharing a passionate embrace, which was frozen in time with a series of photos. Overall, it was one of the most elegant and memorable weddings I have ever shot.” – Photos By: BTW Photography
