Garden Wedding at The Cranbrook House

Congratulations to Julie and Kurt on their wedding at the Cranbrook House in Bloomfield Hills. The ceremony was held in Ellen’s Garden, named in honor of Cranbrook’s co-founder Ellen Scripps Booth.

Designed by noted Detroit architect Albert Kahn in 1908, the English Arts and Crafts-style home of Cranbrook founders George Gough Booth and Ellen Scripps Booth is the oldest surviving manor home in metro Detroit. The Booths commissioned the finest artisans, craftsmen and studios of the period to furnish the house with handcrafted furniture, tapestries, tiles, stained and leaded glass, and other works of fine and decorative art.

For Julie and Kurt, the scenic garden provided a beautiful backdrop for their wedding. Julie wore a gorgeous contemporary gown and processed to Prelude from Te Deum by Charpentier. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the lawn while we played a variety of nostalgic, classical and contemporary selections. Our thanks to Jayne Hammond, wedding coordinator for Cranbrook House, for her assistance that day. We wish Julie and Kurt the very best as they begin married life together.
