Natalie and Adam were married at the Gross Point Academy Chapel, an old brick academy right alongside a river. They chose to have a nautical theme for their wedding, with the idea of “tying the knot.”

Very fittingly, the reception was held at the Detroit Yacht Club, right on the water. The amazing photography is by one of our favorites, Heather and Grayson of Jagger Photography!

The gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres were are all made of fabric and tied with rope! Adam’s ring had a rope design on it as well.

We are pretty much in love with these boutonnieres.

These two could seriously be models, don’t you think? Natalie’s eyes are so striking.

Instead of wedding cake, they had Boston Coolers–vanilla ice cream and Vernor’s Ginger Ale. Sounds yummy and looks adorable as well!
