Ali & Alex in Detroit, MI

The Bride Alexandra (Ali) Seger, 29, an English teacher at Fraser Public Schools The Groom Alexander (Alex) Cusmano, 29, a physician The Date July 30 Ali and Alex are both from the suburbs of Detroit, so they knew they wanted to celebrate locally, and the classic elegance of the Colony Club complemented their taste perfectly. The couple worked with a local event designer to anchor the formal affair in a soft palette of pewter and antique gold, and to weave in more modern details like an “AA” monogram (for their nearly identical first names) to make the overall look of the day feel fresh yet timeless.
