After the ceremony, family and friends enjoyed a picnic-themed luncheon and delicious wedding cake and desserts (check out the giraffe cake topper and tower of doughnuts – YUM!) In true Michigan spirit, Kim and Colin showed Detroit pride with Faygo pop, paired with crowd-pleasers like peanuts, popcorn, and cotton candy.
