Suzanne & Chris – An Ovation Yacht Wedding

Suzanne & Chris had a very laid back wedding, just themselves, a Maid of Honor, and a Best Man.

Getting around Detroit for some cool wedding photography was a lot easier with such a small group. Once we had completed that part of the day, we met the families at the dock for some nice images.

An unusual wedding is always a good thing, and it doesn’t get any more unusual than having your wedding reception on a yacht. In this case the Ovation Yacht out of St Clair Shores.

Everyone gathered on the waterfront, and then the rain started to come. It was into my car for the bride, bridesmaid and a friend. Fortunately, it didn’t take too long for the weather to behave itself, and the ceremony proceeded as planned. In fact, the rainy weather made for a very dramatic sky.

The ceremony finished and right on cue, the rain started again. And again, it didn’t last too long, so we set off on the Ovation for the reception party. Happily, it was smooth sailing (pun fully intended!) all the way.

Sunset on the Ovation yacht – so romantic.

Here are just a few images from the wedding of Suzanne & Chris. And here are some more wedding images.
