Bright & Colorful Urban Detroit Elopement Inspiration

Detroit Z Deck Shoot

While it’s often the case, not all urban weddings have to be dark & grey (if that’s your style – by all means, you do you!). We’ve seen tropical rooftops, funky shipping container art galleries & now this colorful view of Detroit.

Using the colorful and graphic Z Deck Garage, this team of Detroit-based wedding vendors showed a brighter side of the Motor City. Posing our bride & groom dressed in a fun & stylish city hall-ready wardrobe in front of artful walls and in dreamy light, this garage scene is far from ‘grunge’.

Photographed by Nicole Janette, the shoot features local goods & wedding pros like The Dulce Experience, who crafted a very modern ‘painted’ wedding cake and Morheart Studio who designed bold city-chic invites to match.

Our inspiration was young elopement love in Urban Detroit, this shoot is about capturing an edgy, urban and eclectic downtown Detroit vibe. Using the graphical and bright Z Deck Garage and the trendy Belt alleyway as backdrops, this couple embodies the hip elopement an urban couple with love.

For our flowers we chose a large and contrasting black and white bouquet with minimal greenery, matching well with a black and white elopement dress.

Our cake was an artistic and abstract black and white cake with an edgy painted topper. This cake pushes the limits to a more modern and creative take on the standard wedding cake. Designed with urban downtown Detroit, Michigan in mind. The cake & invitations are sourced locally by Detroit vendors.

Our bride wore a modern, romantic and dramatic cocktail length wedding dress with intricate lace shoulders. This dress by Vici makes a stunning statement.
