When Bess and I first chatted about the barn wedding she and Alex would be having, I was struck by her contagious joy. Aside from being a genuinely happy and excited bride, she was also an incredibly trusting one! She told me that their day would reflect them as a couple. In her words, “a little bit redneck, but still classy and elevated — and of course, full of love.” Thanks to their beautiful photos from Inly, let’s relive their barn wedding day!
When I asked Sara and Alex what was important to them in their relationship, they immediately both jumped to say their pets. Their pets were their babies, and their life – for them, that was what was most important. Their goal for the wedding was to incorporate their pets as part of the day, in as many elements as they could. For me, I took that and ran with it. From a crest with their dog and cat on it at the top of their wedding invitation, to the signature drinks being named for each fur baby, to their sweet dog in an amazing floral wreath making a cameo appearance, Sara and Alex’s Misty Farm wedding is sure to give you lots of amazing pets wedding ideas.
Gillian and Daniel had an epic, farmhouse chic affair at Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, located just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The couple resides in New York City but the lovely bride grew up here in metro Detroit. It was always a treat to connect with her when she was back in town for planning trips. Gillian’s mom Wendy first came to me to assist with the envelope addressing for their gorgeous invitations. These stunners were french blue and bronze, letterpress, monogrammed, modern script goodness, created by Joann Nosan of Invitation Station (dear family friends of the bride, which I love). It was an honor to help put the cherry on top for this stationery. Then, for the day of the wedding, it was such a treat to help with the paper goods and mirrored seating chart for this special couple. They had a picture perfect day, full of details that came together seamlessly from all vendors. The result? A seemingly effortless affair – this was one for the books, featured nationally on Brides!
