Audrey absolutely spoiled me by having THE most organized wedding ever. I actually learned a number of new packing and labeling techniques from her and her Midtown Center Wedding in Holland.
I know it may sometimes come off as insincere when I say, “I know if the couple lived here, we would be friends,” but when I say it, it’s because it’s the truth! I’d like to formally submit my application to be Ashley and Michaela’s other sister.
I love when both couples both take part in the planning process and have things they want to share with each other, and their guests. From the moment we had our first call and shared our Chicago loves (hello Mariano’s!) I knew that Cali and Shane’s Michigan Barn Wedding would be one of my favorites.
Mountains, chair lifts & bears, oh my! For real…bears! Chelsea and Mike’s Michigan mountain wedding took the natural landscape of Crystal Mountain and instilled their own cultural and elegant elements all throughout the day.
If I ever need a custom woodworking job done, I know to call Ashley’s family. From their wood arbor, to the beer cooler, to the bar, all the carpentry details showed just how much love was put into their private estate wedding.
Pair the most glamorous old Hollywood bride with her steel fox beau, add the most well-behaved guest pup, and set it all up in an al fresco dinner on the shores of Saugatuck, and you get one of the most epic events of the decade.
Nothing says a Northern Michigan wedding like the lakeshore, bikes, kayaks and brews. Before Mikala and Jake even said their I do’s, they treated their entire bridal party to a rehearsal that was quintessential Traverse City.
With all of the intricacies that go into a wedding day’s timeline, try and imagine it with the katubah, the chuppah, the sheva b’rachot and even more Jewish customs tied in! Josh and Liz made sure that all of their traditions were upheld, while also enjoying every minute of their Northern Michigan Wedding. Mazel Tov!
