WEDDING: Blake and EB

Northport, Michigan

When I pulled up to the scenic Northport farm where Blake and EB were to get married, I found a guy wearing a straw hat working on getting all the details in place. It was Blake. Right then I figured if the groom was in hot August heat working to get things just so, that this was going to be good. And it was.

Even though Blake and EB now live in Wisconsin, the two chose the farm to get married because it overlooked the Manitou Islands – – the place where they were engaged. The couple said they wanted to share with their closest friends and relatives all the things that they loved about Michigan. They paid special attention to using local food and drink. Their invitation was crafted by a childhood friend of EB’s. The cake made by another and stored in the cellar to stay cool until it was time to cut it.

Before the ceremony, Blake and EB reached through a door to cut off symbolic bracelets they had worn for years – – the bracelets were to be replaced with wedding rings. (Even though EB put the wedding ring on the wrong finger during the ceremony!) The evening was a perfect ending to a perfect day–with a crackling bonfire, people lounging in hammocks and more laughter and hugs then I could count.

    I loved all the details… from the flowers and the glowing lights, to the little buttons down the side of the bride’s dress… magically beautiful!
