Outdoor Wedding at the Historic Cranbrook Gardens

Congratulations to Jackie and John on their wedding by the wishing well of Cranbrook House in Bloomfield Hills. It was a beautiful day for an outdoor wedding and the Cranbrook House provides for a gorgeous setting along with the helpful assistance of Jayne Hammond, wedding coordinator for the facility. The House and Gardens stands as a centerpiece of Cranbrook’s 319-acre National Historic Landmark campus. Originally designed by George Booth, the 40 acres of gardens that surround Cranbrook House entice visitors to savor the serenity of the spring and summer months. From the symmetry of the Sunken Garden to the scent of the herbaceous garden to the casual beauty of the bog garden, there is something to capture everyone’s interest. Sculpture, fountains and architectural fragments enhance the setting with spacious lawns, specimen trees, and a lake stretching out beyond the fieldstone walls. Jackie and John chose a variety of music including Jesu, Joy , All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera and the fun “When I’m 64” by the Beatles. The bride processed with both her parents to the traditional Bridal Chorus and following the service led by Reverend Larry Brayboy from Ann Arbor, the new couple recessed to the well known Finale from Handel’s Watermusic Suite. Congratulations to the new couple!
