The Rustic Wedding Style of Your Dreams
Every sweet detail of Heather and Phil’s wedding day reflected the love they have for each other and their families. The intimate wedding allowed their nearest and dearest to travel to Michigan to celebrate on the secluded farmstead at Millcreek Wilde. The elegant country surroundings inspired much of their wedding day decor, from the whimsical floral decor by Andylous Flowers to the lanterns and twinkle lights decorating their charming barn reception. Their soft color palette of peach and green beautifully suited Heather’s classic A-line wedding dress with an illusion neckline adorned with floral lace! The bridesmaids dazzled in silver and peach tea length dresses, while gray suits struck the perfect balance between formal and relaxed for the groom and his groomsmen!
The couple shared an intimate first look moment on the West Michigan sand dunes, allowing them a private moment to take in the excitement of the day (not to mention capture some stunning portraits)! They exchanged vows under the venue’s vintage whitewashed arbor, with a colorful sand ceremony to symbolize their unity. Guests indulged in lawn games and cocktails before finding their seats with the bride’s calligraphy escort cards. They kept entertained with photos of the couple’s parents and grandparents in their heirloom wedding attire, and a guest book of locations the world traveling duo had visited together! After heartfelt toasts and a truly spectacular dessert display, they got things started on the dance floor! An epic glow stick send off added a colorful finish to their incredible wedding day!
