Michigan Barn Yard Wedding

Alexa and Nathan were married in Troy, MI where her and her family attended church. The cross in the church was hand carved in honor of Alexa’s father who passed away a few years back. After the ceremony, the guests drove about an hour to The Huntsman Hunt Club. Since it was such a far drive, the bride made handmade goodie bags filled with with water and cookies. She stamped it with her own personalized bird stamp. Read on to learn more about this Michigan wedding shoot by Veldman Photo .

The groom, Nathan, is from Montana, but bride, Alexa, was from the Michigan area. She decided to decorate her reception hall as though they were in Montana. They were both really big readers. Their centerpieces were set up with mason jars, country flowers, and a few of their favorite classic books that they enjoyed. They had their place cards as book marks with the guests name and table number included on them. The favors included a DIY goodie bag with trail mix, nuts, and candy in wooden bins.

Their friend made them a sign that said their names and wedding date, along with a hand carved rocker.
