To loyal Pursuit followers this groom is likely to be a familiar face. We met Tremaine a few years back when he modeled Pursuit gear in the Ohio State Moritz College of Law Fashion Show and he became a loyal supporter we have tapped on multiple occasions to make us look good. We were so excited to outfit Tremaine and his groomsmen and to get to know his wonderful bride Andria during the process. We really appreciate photographer Steve Gabrail of Studio 41 Photography sharing these amazing photos of the day with us.
The wedding was held at the Waterview Lofts Port Detroit; the happy couple are from the state up north. Their wedding party was scattered geographically too but Tremaine knew Pursuit well enough to know we'd take care of all the guys, whether they could make it to our shop or not.
The couple selected blue suit separates (plus vest for the groom), white shirts, and slim blue ties from the Pursuit Wedding Collection which provided the perfect compliment to the vibrant fuschia Francesca Maestrales bridesmaids dresses from Nuova Vita. Andrea's elegant lace gown was Pronovias Praci from Piera's Bridal Couture. Tying the colors together were beautiful arrangements from Emerald City Designs and Mancuso's Florist.
The couple cited personal service and style as two big reasons for choosing Pursuit. They also felt that being able to have their groomsmen buy affordable, well-fitting suits instead of a "lumpy rental suit or tux" at a comparable price was key. We tend to agree! We also think it's pretty cool Tremaine got married in a suit that he models on our website as it's important to us that our models are actual customers!
Andria and Tremaine offered some advice to those planning a wedding. One key is to not sweat the small stuff. Certain things won't go to plan but that's to be expected. The couple laughed about never actually setting foot in their party bus due to a miscommunication during wedding photos that sent the bridesmaids and groomsmen off in the bus without them. After seeing how amazing the photos turned out, we can see why that is easy to laugh off. The couple also advised that others give small responsibilities to family members to keep tabs on important items like rings, marriage certificates, and other mementos so you aren't worrying about them.
With the wedding behind them the couple is excited to settle into their new home in Cincinnati. We wish them the best and thank them for including Pursuit in the wedding. If you know someone who would like our help outfitting their wedding, fill out the very brief form and we'll be in touch.
