Ford Piquette Avenue Plant

The Ford Piquette Plant was built in 1904 as Ford Motor Companies first purpose-built factory, meaning it was built for the sole purpose of building Ford vehicles. The Piquette Plant is located in the Milwaukee Junction neighborhood named for its railroad lines. The area was known as a hub of industry because of the swift and convenient railway transportation. In 1908 the Piquette Plant became the birthplace of the Model T, now it has been repurposed as a museum highlighting the great success of Ford Motor Company as well as a breathtaking event venue.

In late March a group of amazing Michigan based wedding creatives joined forces to create a beautiful bridal shoot showcasing the history and allure of the plant. The concept behind the was ballet in an effort to highlight the gorgeous handmade veils by KathrynAnn Bridal. Since the shoot was ballet themed it only seemed right to use all Pas de Deux gowns. Pas de Deux, literally meaning dance for two, is a bridal line that pulls its inspiration from ballet. The collection features delicate lace and light tulle as well as beautiful blush and dove gray hues. Here are some of our favorites from the shoot.

Bridesmaids Dresses

Oh, the joy of the bridesmaid’s dress. Who doesn't remember that iconic scene in 27 Dresses when all of Jane's friends are lined up at the altar in the awful gowns they had her wear in their weddings? Gone are the days of the unfortunate and uncomfortable bridesmaid dress. Who wants to stand in front of a gathering of your best friend’s extended family and friends feeling and looking as awkward as a kindergartner who forgot the words to her solo at the holiday concert? And no bride wants that for her best girls. Now are the days of the fabulous bridesmaid dress where everyone in the bridal party feels confident and fully ready to support their girl on one of the biggest days of her life.

Here are a few of our favorite trends for bridesmaids dresses: 

1. Women in White: We love the idea of all the women wearing white or ivory (ivory looks good on everyone) The whole squad is matching, but it is in such a chic way.

2. Mismatch, Match- In this trend, everyone is wearing the same dress, but some in print and some in solids. This is a fun way to mix it up and give your photos some variety.

3. Mix Up- Have all your bridesmaids wear whatever dress they want as long as it is all the same length and within the color scheme. This way everyone feels comfortable and can maybe show a little of their own personality.

4. Color Scheme Family- Everyone wearing colors that compliment each other, but different styles and different lengths. Gives a family photo kind of feel.

5. Same Color, Different Style- This trend is top of our list, maybe you have a color that you want everyone to wear, but some of your bridesmaids are bustier or bigger fans of the deep-v. With this trend, everyone can be uniform, yet comfortable and confident.

and the best part is that you can shorten it and wear it again!

Belle Isle Conservatory Shoot

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
Audrey Hepburn

 

The Belle Isle Conservatory has been an integral piece of Detroit’s fabric since the early 1800s. With its lush gardens, golden sand beaches, and timeless architectural structures Belle Isle was the perfect place to showcase the beauty of Stella York Style 6182.

 

Richelle of Richelle Marie Photography not only captured the beauty of Belle Isle Conservatory, but she also captured every lovely detail of Stella York Style 6182.
