Kim and Dan hosted a beautifully minimal wedding at a local market by day turned wedding venue by night -The Rustbelt Market. Their style was modern and fresh with pops of bright red, orange and yellow. They kept the entire wedding day almost completely waste-free.
Dan works in product development at a modern furniture company, is a musician (saxophone, piano, and guitar) and loves jazz music and mid-century modern design. Kim is finishing up her master’s degree in environmental sustainability with the future goal of working to create healthy, vibrant, equitable urban areas. The couple loves discovering new places and booked a trip to Belize within months of knowing each other. "After getting stranded in Atlanta, finding out our Airbnb was lacking a bathroom door and air-conditioning, and having the most fun together we knew this was going to be a wonderful ride."
The couple chose to get ready at their house in Detroit. Kim's bridesmaids were given the choice of any dress they wanted as long as they fit into the colour scheme, the groomsmen hired suits from Menguin - where Dan also hired his suit. Kim wore a minimal, high neck BHLDN dress. The couple got ready with their bridal party at their home and the day was beautifully captured by husband and wife photographer duo Robyn and Finch.
Kim and Dan wanted their wedding to be representative of who they are as a couple and incorporated pieces of what they love about each other throughout the planning and design to make it uniquely theirs - modern with a low environmental impact. But their main desire was to eat, drink, dance, laugh and celebrate each other with the people they love the most.
Dan's father officiated the wedding, which added a beautiful touch to their ceremony. A small jazz band Cory Allen Jazz Trio played and was then followed by Good Music Gentlemen spinning vinyl to keep the party going late into the night.
