Wedding at Shrine of the Little Flower

Congratulations to Lisa and T.J. on their wedding at Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak. This historic church, dedicated to St. Therese of Lisieux who was known as “The Little Flower”, provided an elegant setting for the wedding ceremony. The bridal party wore lovely coral dresses and carried bouquets of coral and white roses interspersed with delicate purple iris. Monsignor Easton conducted communion while church vocalist Gracie, sang a beautiful rendition of “I Will Be Here” by Steven Curtis Chapman accompanied by our quartet.
Constructed in 1929 with Massachusetts granite and Indiana limestone, a striking feature of the church is the 104-foot Charity Crucifixion Tower that overlooks the intersection of Twelve Mile Road and Woodward Avenue. Additionally, the Alter is a solid block of Carrara marble, the most pure white marble in the world. It is the largest monolith in the United States and weighs eighteen tons. The couple’s appreciation for history was evident again in their choice of Lovett Hall at Greenfield Village in Dearborn for their reception. The cocktail hour was held in the Lovett Lobby; a chic 1930’s setting with marble flooring and fourteen foot ceilings. Our quartet performed many classical selections including Vivaldi’s Spring, Strauss’ Fledermaus Waltz and Brandenburg Concerto just to name a few. The elegant and glamour of the Lovett Ballroom was the site of the couples dinner and reception.
The obvious appreciation for history and elegance created a memorable evening for the newly wedded couple and guests alike. Our best wishes to T.J. and Lisa as they begin their life together.
