Detroit Institute of Arts Wedding

Lizzy and Tigist’s fusion wedding was a beautiful celebration of love, blending cultures and traditions in a way that was uniquely theirs. As an LGBTQ+ couple, their wedding was not only a union of two people but also a powerful testament to love’s diversity and inclusivity.

The day started with Lizzy getting glammed up at Detroit Barber Co., while Tigist looked dashing in a sharp tux. After both brides were picture-perfect, they shared an emotional first look on the grand staircase of the Westin Book Cadillac.

We ventured into downtown Detroit, capturing stunning rooftop shots and celebrating their love against the city’s iconic backdrop. Back at the Westin, the couple participated in the tisch and ketubah signing, leading up to their heartfelt ceremony under the chuppah.

Golden hour provided the perfect backdrop as we whisked Lizzy and Tigist to the Detroit Institute of Arts for some breathtaking sunset photos on the iconic staircase. The couple made a grand entrance at the cocktail hour, showcasing traditional Ethiopian attire that left everyone in awe.

The celebration continued in the Great Hall, where Lizzy and Tigist cut into a cake masterfully crafted by Sweet Heather Anne to resemble a woven Ethiopian basket. As the night progressed, the energy soared with the lively beats of The Hora in the Rivera Court, marking the beginning of an unforgettable dance party.

Capturing the love and joy that Lizzy and Tigist radiated throughout their special day was an absolute honor. Their wedding was a beautiful reminder that love knows no bounds and that every love story is worth celebrating. We’re thrilled to have been part of their journey and can’t wait to see what the future holds for this incredible couple!

HOW DID YOU MEET? Tigist: During law school at UC Berkeley, I visited a friend at Harvard. We hit up Zuzu’s, a local queer night, where I met Lizzy. We clicked instantly, but with me in California and Lizzy in Cambridge, it seemed complicated. Fate intervened when I got stuck in Boston due to Winter Storm Marcus. Stranded together, we realized we were both moving to Brooklyn soon. So, we took the plunge and made it official!
