A Romantic Ballroom Wedding at The Durant in Flint, Michigan

Justine Simmonds (27 and a polysomnographic technologist) and Devin Sierra (25 and a patient access coordinator) met in middle school.  Dusty-blue velvet accents, muted florals and gold-flecked details brought the couple’s romantic-vintage vision to life.  Justine paired her go-to color of gold with Devin’s favorite shade of blue for a seriously chic color combo that played up their historic venue. “The Durant is one of Flint’s most beautiful spaces,” she says of the former hotel. For her walk down the aisle, Justine slipped into a pair of embellished heels and accessorized her tulle gown with her great-grandmother’s ivory pearl necklace. Blue tapered candles and mercury glass votives topped the tablescapes, while sequined linens and towering centerpieces added an element of glitz to the overall design.
