Detroit Institute of Arts Wedding | Beatrice & Eli | Amanda Dumouchelle Photography
Beatrice and Eli’s DIA wedding was a true representation of the couple’s style―that is to say, it was sophisticated and undeniably beautiful! The ceremony took place at the colorful Rivera Court, where the workers of the Detroit Industry Murals surrounded the guests. “The Detroit Institute of Arts has always been one of my favorite places to visit with my mother,” Beatrice said about the elegant venue, “I couldn’t imagine a more perfect, timeless place to get married. It checked all of our boxes and was the perfect fit for us. How many people can brag that they got married literally feet away from a Van Gogh!”
The couple decided to not have a bridal party. With such a big, vibrant, and lively wedding, having a time just between them instead of with a whole bridal party meant that they could take the time to savor each special moment together. However, that did not mean that they weren’t surrounded by friends and family throughout the day. When we arrived for the “getting ready” photos, Eli was hanging out with his friends. Beatrice was at her mother’s house, and the whole house was filled with chatter and laughter from aunts and girlfriends.
We had a lot of fun going to different locations around Detroit. We lucked out at the Zlot with the roof being empty! Beatrice and Eli shared their “first dance” on the rooftop lot, surrounded by the open Detroit skyline. But of course, nothing beat taking photos in the iconic museum!
Beatrice and Eli will be heading to Italy and France for their honeymoon! Having just returned from Paris and having spent two months in Europe last year, we are very excited for the couple to see the beautiful sights of the city of love. After the trip, their next adventure will be starting a premium gift box company called Open Me When. We already know it’s going to be a huge hit!
Congratulations on your wedding, Beatrice and Eli! Thank you for letting us be a part of such a special day. Here are some of our favorite moments.
