Graduate Hotel Ann Arbor Wedding


Graduate Hotel Ann Arbor Wedding

The Graduate Hotel Ann Arbor was the perfect wedding location for Aiwen and Valentine. Aiwen was born in China and Valentine is from Russia. The two classically trained saxophonists met while studying at the prestigious Paris Conservatory. Despite the challenges of distance and travel restrictions, their wedding at the Graduate Hotel in Ann Arbor celebrated their love for each other.

The RED PHONE – COVID travel restrictions prevented Valentine’s family from physically attending the wedding. However, they were able to be a part of the entire wedding process, from preparation to dinner, via FaceTime. A red phone may seem insignificant to some on the surface, but when given context it’s a beautiful and large part of their wedding story that I hope continues to be told.

The intimate ceremony was officiated by Aiwen’s stepfather, adding a personal touch to the proceedings.

The Graduate Hotel in Ann Arbor provided the perfect backdrop for Aiwen and Valentine’s wedding. This iconic venue boasts a unique blend of modern style and vintage charm, making it an ideal location for a romantic celebration. The hotel’s sophisticated ambiance and elegant decor perfectly complemented the couple’s refined taste and love for classical music.

After the ceremony, a small dinner was held at the Allen Rumsey Cocktail Lounge, located in the Graduate Hotel. The cozy and intimate atmosphere of the lounge provided a perfect setting for toasting to the newlyweds with champagne and indulging in a delectable wedding cake.

As an Ann Arbor wedding photographer, I strive to capture the unique personalities and love stories of every couple I work with. Aiwen and Valentine’s wedding was a true reflection of their love for each other, and it was a privilege to document their special day.

Congratulations to Aiwen and Valentine on their wedding, and may their love continue to create beautiful music together!
