We are excited to share this edgy Detroit styled shoot. When coming up for the concept for the shoot, Gabriella Ammiano of V Agency of Events wanted to do something that was modern, edgy and would appeal to young, trendy brides.   At 22, Gabriella knew that her fresh view on the industry would help to create something that Detroit wedding professionals aren’t used to.    Her design quickly evolved into a wedding concept for the bad-ass couple; people who live their lives outside the lines and have their own unique style.    Gabriella got inspiration by thinking about what kind of wedding she and her friends would have if we were getting married tomorrow.    This is how she came up with the idea to do a wedding based on the color black and incorporate edgy and minimal design elements.

The venue of choice was Castle Hall, which has been standing since 1899. It has seen the best and worst of times. The grittiness and imperfections of the building coordinated perfectly for this edgy shoot. Besides, there are not many castles in the United States. Bad-ass bride or not, who wouldn’t want to be married in a castl

Detroit has resilience like nowhere else. We know how to take multiple punches and get up every single time. I wanted the vibe and couple for this shoot to reflect that. The dark, edgy concept of the shoot was well balanced with love and romantic touches sprinkled throughout the design. We added unique elements such as a DIY neon sign, charcoal as wedding favors, and posing the models on a fire escape for some truly amazing shots. –
