Casual Elegance Defines Wedding at Tam-O-Shanter in West Bloomfield

IMG_2464Sophisticated and reflecting casual elegance, Tam-O-Shanter Country Club has a rich history in our community that extends back to 1925 when a group of wealthy Detroit industrialists leased the 160-acre tract of rolling wooded land in West Bloomfield.  Known for its beautiful vista of the golf course, the Club House is of English architecture and masonry construction.  Jodi and Ethan chose this premier venue for their wedding day and exchanged vows overlooking the country club’s 18-hole Championship course.  One of the days highlights was the humor that Noah brought to the wedding ceremony in his role as officiant.  Ethan’s brother and Jodi’s good friend since the 6th grade, Noah wove the story of their relationship and unique qualities into the wedding vows.  The warmth and laughter shared by family and friends alike reflected the kind and generous nature of this couple.

Over the months of conversations, interactions and the process of music selection, we often develop an impression of the couple.  It was clear that Ethan and Jodi have a appreciation for tradition and an enjoyment of current trends. For their wedding ceremony, they chose classics such as the Beatles “In My Life” and “Build Me Up Buttercup” by the Foundations.  Yet they followed it with Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” and “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars.

Following the ceremony, we played a wide array of music for the cocktail hour and had couples dancing, Dads and their daughters bouncing and swaying while others sang along to “I’m A Believer”, “Don’t Stop Believing” just to name a few. Tam-o-Shanter is known for its fine dining and the aroma of lamb chops and other delectable hor’doeurves were mouth watering while The “red coat” ladies from Party Assurance had everything running on time with their usual efficiency right up to the end with dinner and dancing provided by a top area band.  Congratulations to Jodi and Ethan and best wishes for a lifetime of happiness.
