On a warm summer day in August at St. Hugo of the Hills Chapel in West Bloomfield, Michigan, Kevin and Quinn said I do. It was standing room only as 250 of their closest family and friends filled the chapel with love. After the ceremony, the newlyweds took off in a vintage cherry red Ford pickup and guests headed to the reception at Royal Oak Farmers Market. They were greeted with incredible appetizers, including coconut shrimp and braised short rib tacos. The bar featured signature cocktails named after their fur babies, Opie and Matey. The reception space was filled with bright, bold flowers in blue and white vintage vases, soft candlelight, and beautiful hand drawn table numbers. As cocktail hour came to a close, parents, wedding party members, and our newlyweds made their grand entrance and Kevin and Quinn shared their first dance as husband and wife. To kick off dinner, Kevin and Quinn’s family and friends shared toasts with wonderful memories and so much excitement for their new life together. Holiday Market catering took over the evening with the most delicious stationed buffets including a salad station, mashed potato bar, and “Little Italy”. Multiple trips were taken and bellies were full!
After dinner, it was time to get the party started and dance under the lights. Kevin and Quinn paid so much attention to details and wanted their guests to really enjoy the party, including all of the children, with activity baskets filled with toys, treats, and a custom coloring book. Once everyone had room for dessert, they were in for a real treat! Holiday Market cut the cake and put out a huge spread of miniature desserts and Bomb Shell Treat Bar arrived where guests could customize their own ice cream bar with chocolate or lemonade dip, salted caramel or raspberry drizzle and assorted toppings. It was a huge hit! Friends and family partied the night away while making memories in the photo booth and enjoying the beautiful summer evening on the patio, lounging on white leather sofas. It was such a perfect day for Kevin and Quinn and such a joy to be a part of. Congratulations!
