Check out these beautiful photos taken by Gravity Photo Co. of David & Brittney's beautiful wedding ceremony this past Sunday in our South Garden and reception in our Miller Room!

Congrats again to David & Brittney! 🎉💍🌊

David and Brittany had big wedding plans that started even before we photographed their engagement in 2017, but when COVID hit they had to change not only the date of their wedding but also the venue. Still, they were determined to celebrate their love and ended up moving the now more intimate affair to Coast, right by where we originally took their engagement photos over three years ago.

In the end, the weather was superb, the venue excellent, and they got married without a hitch. Thanks so much to David, Brittany, and their families, as well as the many vendors who came together to make sure they had a fun and safe celebration.

Thanks to the following vendors:

Venue: Coast Restaurant @ Zilli Lake & Gardens
H/MUA: Ashleigh Wegner
Bride's Dress: Evermore Bridal
Bridesmaids Dresses: David's Bridal
Officiant: Judge Derek Moseley
Cake: The Gingerbread House

How stunning are these photos by Vital Image of Hannah & Corbin's big day last weekend? 😍🌊🎉
From their outdoor wedding ceremony in ZLG's North Gardens overlooking Lake Michigan, to their cocktail hour in Coast and reception in the Miller Room, we had a blast being part of their day and in serving their custom Zilli Hospitality Group Pizza & Flatbread Buffet Menu! 🍕

Hannah & Corbin tied the knot last Friday in a picturesque setting off Lake Michigan. These were one of the most adorable couples we have had the pleasure of working with. Everyone could tell how in love they were with each other every time they looked into each other's eyes. It was true love beyond words. Trish, Sean, Kevin, Laura, & Rich were honored to witness every special moment.
