New Years Eve 2023 Wedding hosted with A Simple I Do
Hosting an intimate wedding or a simple signing with A Simple I Do, your local Justice of the Peace is a simple and stress free way to get married in southeast Michigan.
A Simple I Do Wedding Officiants celebrated the love on New Years day at our Pontiac Studio in the historic Riker Building. When two people share a love story so strong that you can actually physically see the love...that's pure magic!
With these two I kept noticing the way they looked at each other, it was so adoring and unconditional, all love. I felt honored to share in their wedding day.

New Years Eve 2023 - Wedding at Riker Building with A Simple I Do
Our intimate weddings at the Riker Building are a sweet and beautiful way to host a wedding for your closest people and not have to stress about all the details.
You're welcomed into the studio to take a few portraits with your photographer and then we can hide one spouse while the other welcomes your guests in and we get them seated. Next up is the wedding ceremony, and of course you can walk down the aisle to your favorite song! Nichole will perform the wedding ceremony in such a way as to draw in your guests all while getting the heck out of the way and leaving space for your love (and pictures without her in the background).
You'll walk back down the aisle married and then sign your marriage license and lastly is taking all those amazing photos with your loved ones.
Once done at the studio you can move on to a celebratory lunch brunch or dinner or keep it simple and wish everyone well and do your very own thing.

Intimate wedding in Pontiac Michigan
At A Simple I Do Wedding Officiants we look at intimate ceremonies as a way to truly highlight your love story. When you have an intimate wedding inviting your most important and special people you allow yourselves to truly melt into the time and space that is your wedding ceremony. Looking out to your guests at your intimate ceremony takes on a new look when each face you see is one you personally know and love.
The Riker building studio is a beautiful white walled space that allows you to host your intimate ceremony in a warm and inviting space. The studio can host up to 20 guests. At the studio we book ceremonies on the half hour and rent the space for a hour and 15 minute window. Here is the timeline we follow: Using 12:30 as an example ceremony start time:
12:15 doors open to couple and photographer for a first look or couple portraits
12:30 guests enter and are seated and ceremony begins
12:45 sign license and hugs to guests
12:55 to 1:15 group photos
1:15 guests exit studio and couple has last 15 minutes for just the two of them for intimate photos in studio.
1:30 couple and photographer exit studio
We suggest talking to your professional photographer about their desired timeline, pricing and offerings. You can do an extended photo shoot using the roof, lobby and outdoors to take additional photos.
The officiants at A Simple I Do welcome all couples to celebrate their love and host intimate ceremonies at the Riker Studio.
Details of the studio:
20 guests or less
one hour and 15 minute rental time
seating for 15 guests (rest will stand)
