This wedding was one of epic proportion! The day started at the beautiful Fieldguide Farmhouse in Central Lake, MI. It’s around a 45-minute drive north of Traverse City, but the serenity and beauty is well worth it. The bride Megan and her bridesmaid Natalie were getting hair & makeup done by Onsite Bridal while Stacy of Juniper and Lace was putting together the final details under the tent. The groom Dan and his groomsmen Nate relaxed around the property and enjoyed the views of the lake across the lawn.
Once the ladies were ready to go they stepped into their stunning One Oak Bride dresses as the guys put the boutonnieres on their Craig Ryan suits. The first look for the couple was held on the long, tree lined driveway at Fieldguide Farmhouse. Afterward, the bridal party was photographed around the property before heading off to King Orchards down the road. We couldn’t have timed it more perfectly as the cherry blooms were perfectly in blossom. We completely understand why so many tourist flock to the area during the blooms, they are jaw-dropping gorgeous! The greenery theme of the wedding perfectly coordinated with the blooms, their unique rings from Miner’s North Jewelry, and floral.
Back at the ceremony & reception site, the crew from Taproot Cider’s were prepping the food as little donuts from Peace, Love, & Little Donuts were being hung on the donut wall. When the bridal party arrived back it was a whirlwind of events. Ceremony, dinner, donuts, dancing, and best of all–enjoying the peace and quiet that Central Lake has to offer. The day ended in true Northern Michigan style, with a bon fire. Instead of the typical s’mores on the fire the couple instead roasted cinnamon twists as their treat (recipe below).
We can not even begin to thank all the 20+ vendors, 4 models, & 1 assistant that came together to create this one-of-a-kind style shoot. It started with a small idea and grew with each vendor that came on board. You can see all the incredible vendors involved at the bottom of this posts. Without them this day woudn’t have been as magical! Thanks again and enjoy!
Completely in awe of how beautiful these invitations from Sable and Gray are!
