Cecilia + Grant | Howell Opera House Wedding | Metro Detroit Wedding Photographer


Howell Opera House Wedding. Photographed by Nicole Leanne Photography

Cecilia and Grant's wedding at Howell Opera House was historic and stunning. Even though they were married privately last year, it was finally their time to celebrate with family and friends. Their charming chapel ceremony at All Saints Church in Howell was the perfect venue for all of those closest to them. It is also a historical site, which Grant is a major history buff and studied History in college, so it was fun for them to incorporate two historical sites into their special day. Cecilia looked so elegant in her beautiful dress. I loved the button detailing down the back. She even did all of the florals for her own wedding, which were the epitome of classic elegance and so impressive! Cecilia's sister walked her down the aisle to meet her groom and Grant's sister officiated. A sweet and classic ceremony for Cecilia and Grant, which was very special to have their siblings a part of.


Once the couple exchanged vows, everyone headed to the Howell Opera House. Conveniently, it is located right across the street so we were able to enjoy the crisp fall day on our way over. The Howell Opera House is another historical site in town, which Grant was able to share his best anecdotes about. The upstairs is rustic and partially restored but 100% beautiful. Cecilia's maid of honor and Grant's best man joined us as we captured them all among fine details and history. Coincidentally, the colors of the stage coordinated perfectly with the teal jewel-toned dress her maid of honor wore. Once Cecilia and Grant joined their guests back downstairs, they enjoyed hilarious speeches by Grant's dad and Cecilia's friend along with some delicious cake and dancing. A beautiful day for a wonderful couple!

Wishing Cecilia and Grant a lifetime of happiness together and a love story that's one for the history books!

All my love,
