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.
Here is what the back lawn looks like. The late afternoon light on the area is just spectacular.
Here’s just a casual photo of the bridal party all together on the back lawn.
There are plenty of amazing photographic opportunities so you need to make sure enough time is scheduled to take pictures all around the grounds at Cranbrook.
Near the art museum is an open lawn space that is perfect for a large tent wedding.
Hiring a professional florist and tent designer can be key to personalizing the event.
The grounds around the Cranbrook Art Museum have beautiful flowers, sculptures and fountains.
The art museum has a lot of wide open space which is perfect for the cocktail hour
Their are also a lot of great places for photos right around the Cranbrook Art Museum
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!!
