Elegant Rustic Barn Wedding in Michigan

From Janelle, the photographer: 

“Amanda’s mom played cupid and introduced her to her co-worker, Alex. They fell in love shortly after and live with their sweet Golden Doodle, Finley, who made an appearance during their portraits!

The Bride and Groom wanted to keep the day elegant and true to themselves, despite being at a barn venue so there are no mason jars and tractors here. They spent so much time DIY’ing many elements like the gorgeous wooden bridal table and the signs. They even created the bridesmaids’ bouquets out of lavender and arranged eucalyptus over the tables. The bride shared a first look with her bridesmaids, then her adoring groom, and finally with her grandpa (who also walked her down the aisle and proudly danced with her). The wedding landed on what would have been the bride’s great grandma’s 100th birthday and she carried a borrowed blue floral handkerchief with her in loving memory.”
