Real Brides: Erin

My husband (Patrick) and I got married on August 20th 2016. We got married at Gesu Catholic Church in Detroit Michigan. We choose this church because it is associated with University of Detroit Mercy, which is where we met while in Nursing school. We are now both back in school at Wayne State University getting our Doctorates (DNP). Detroit is the city we met, fell in love, and have spent a lot of time over the past 6 years making amazing memories. We took photos all around Detroit starting at the church, then went to the Detroit Public Library, then the DIA (Detroit Institute of Art). Both of those locations are right by Wayne State where we attend class. We also went to a newer area in Detroit called The Belt which is an alley that has popped up with new little hidden bars and decorated in graffiti work done by artists and twinkle lights hanging that make for a perfect summer hangout. Our reception was located at Andiamo in Warren. I was so happy with my dress I can't even begin to explain it. I had gone to one bridal shop to try on dresses... tried on probably over 20 and didn't like a single dress. I went to B.Ella Bridal in Plymouth Michigan. I walked around the entire store and looked through every single rack myself in search of THE dress. This dress was the only dress I even felt willing to try on. When I saw my mother and sister crying I knew it was the one! I got so many compliments on my dress, I truly felt like a princess! Photography: Studio 41 Photography Moonlight Style: H1287
