Cranbrook House in Birmingham Michigan Wedding Photography and Review

Cranbrook is an interesting venue because there are LOTS of great places on the grounds to have weddings ceremonies. Our favorite area is the backyard of the Cranbrook house overlooking the lake. What a beautiful setting. Cranbrook is a national historical landmark and the campus features the work of world-renowned architects which provide lots of fabulous places to create photos that combine architecture and nature. It is also not far from downtown Birmingham, MI which opens up a many more fun opportunities for us.

This shows a photo during the ceremony with Cranbrook lake in the background.

Right outside of the Cranbrook grounds is Christ Church Cranbrook which is a stunning old church for your ceremony if you don’t have it on the church grounds. If you go there, talk to Ed Mullins…he’s the reverend there and a great guy!!
