Follow us to the heart of downtown Detroit, a neighborhood in the middle of a revitalization. With our affinity for historical details and raw event spaces, we couldn’t help but fall for the Belle Isle Boat House, formerly known as the Detroit Boat Club. Styled Shoots Across America put together a beautiful waterside shoot here, scroll through to see it all…
Who could ask for a more beautiful location that the Belle Isle Boat Club? With its original details (just look at those moldings!) and patio with a water view, it might literally be the perfect place for a wedding. And those sun-drenched interiors really set the perfect scene for a lounge area. Especially if said lounge area is made up of tufted pink velvet pieces from Event Theory.
Let’s pop back outside to the patio, because why dine indoors when you could be outside? With views of the Detroit river and right onto downtown, this really has a great vantage point. Heather Benge Events set the table with our Chambray Dalusio linen, bringing in the bright blue skies to the tabletop. We love how the pattern is both ikat-inspired and has a Baroque feel to it – blending old and new, much like the venue itself. The tabletop decor, including our Flax Diana Lace Napkins, was kept subtle with coordinating blue glassware and traditional flatware, really giving the floral arrangement from Intrigue Designs space to bloom! We love the spectrum of pink hues, from light blush to bold fuchsia, that brought this table to life.
And all of the details tied in just beautifully! Our favorite piece? That delicious cake from The Dulce Experience. Set in a shade of blue that matched the tabletop, it was lightly brushed for artist effect and adorned with lovely flowers. We say, let them eat cake and then some!
