They began their day at the picturesque Orchard Lake St. Mary Shrine Chapel, where anticipation and love filled the air. Courtney, a massage therapist, and Chris, one of her clients, found their way into each other’s hearts as friends who grew to love. Before the ceremony, Courtney shared a touching first look with her father and her adorable son, and then shared a tender first look with Chris. The emotions were evident, and the love between this family was truly heartwarming.
Chris and Courtney wore traditional golden crowns during the ceremony, symbolizing Chris’ Chaldean heritage. These ceremonial crowns signify their commitment and equality in their relationship, drawing parallels between their love and the union of Christ and the Church.
The couple reserved a 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V, which whisked them away in style after the ceremony. It added an extra layer of fun to their portraits. Following their marriage, they uncorked a bottle of bubbly, savoring a few sips with the vehicle as the enchanting backdrop. It truly felt like a moment plucked from a fairytale.
This wedding was a classic Chaldean affair overflowing with rich culture and tradition. As Chris and Courtney entered the reception at The Henry Dearborn, the atmosphere exploded with energy. After the couple entered, a zeffa, complete with drums and lively dancing, surrounded the impressive seven-layer cake, creating a memorable atmosphere.
Walking into the reception space was a jaw-dropping moment for everyone. One of the Dearborn wedding venues, The Henry, Autograph Collection, was adorned with stunning flowers gracing each table and magnificent floral arches and designs throughout the room, and the ambiance was electrifying with a live band and drummers. The joy and excitement were apparent as everyone joined in the celebration.
The Henry Autograph Collection served as the ideal scenery for this unforgettable day. With luxurious ballrooms accommodating 20 to 750 guests, the venue offered an exquisite setting for Chris and Courtney’s celebration. They offer a package with an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, a champagne toast, a three-course plated dinner, and even a suite for the newlyweds on their wedding night. The Henry, Autograph Collection has a dedicated staff that ensures every detail is perfectly executed, making dreams come true.
I’m grateful to Chris and Courtney for allowing me to be a part of their magical day. Their love story, rich in culture and tradition, will continue to be filled with happiness and cherished moments.
Words of love: “We cannot say enough good things about working with Kali for our wedding and engagement pictures. She was beyond helpful and fun to work with, every step of the way! She went above and beyond her role as the photographer. My husband and I are so happy with every single one of our wedding pictures. Can’t thank her enough!”
