This Michigan wedding is just bursting with color and fun details, which were handmade by the crafty bride. We love the beautiful outdoor setting, all of the handmade signage, and the super fun paper and “Love” marquee backdrop for the bridal table.

From the Photographer: It was a beautiful Saturday in the woods when Anna married Travis, the man of her dreams. We were guided in by multiple signs pointing the way. Everything was decorated to perfection because Anna, ever the crafty bride, hand crafted all these amazing details. Anna was an absolutely stunning bride and was just beaming at the sight of her dashing groom, Travis. These two are madly in love and every stolen glance confirmed how much they adore each other. It was pretty clear to see that they fit together perfectly. It was a very special day and we were so privileged to be there.
We are loving the rustic elements of this wedding, like the birch arch, and the color palette of taupe with white and green flowers that compliments this northern Michigan setting. How gorgeous are their photos among the tall trees in the woods?

From their Photographer: Nestled between Lake Michigan on one side, and Lower Herring Lake on the other, The Watervale Inn truly is a gorgeous venue for a wedding. It is also a place that has been special to Alex’s side of the family for many years. I had always heard how gorgeous northern Michigan is, but I’d never been; it does not disappoint. The woods and lakes surrounding this quaint bed and breakfast, make for incredible photographic opportunities. Abby had the most beautiful bouquet I’ve ever seen, and all the details fit perfectly with the rustic vibe of Watervale. The tall trees, the sand dunes, the cottages; all of it so unique to Watervale, and in turn, helped make Abby & Alex’s day so special and unique. I was so thrilled to be a part of this one.
Our beautiful bride today grew up in the Boyne, Michigan area so she knew that’s where she wanted to have her wedding, on the beach, with the reception just steps away. Many of the cute details of this nautical themed wedding was handmade by the bride, her parents, and sister from the paper boat place settings to the wedding stationary. Read more about this wedding from the bride below and check out their beautiful photos by Valerie Ott Photography.

From the Bride: When we started to plan our wedding, we immediately knew that northern Michigan would be the perfect spot to say “I Do”. The bride grew up in Boyne City and we both love the area. We wanted a venue that we could get married on the beach and have the reception just a few short steps away. We found just that spot at the Sommerset Pointe Yacht Club in Boyne City. The venue boasted just the right look and feel that we wanted for our vintage nautical theme. Our vendors spanned from the Kalamazoo area (where we live) to Traverse City and up to Boyne City.
Every detail of our wedding had meaning because a majority of it was handmade by the Bride’s mother, father, and sister. The hand folded paper boat place settings, hand painted guest finger printed fish, folded napkins, floral arrangements on the tables, Shoe parking and ceremony guest seating sign, brides hand beaded sash belt, ceremony flower pots, and the wedding stationary/ceremony program fans/dinner menu/seating poster/bar menu were designed and printed by the bride.
We are loving all of the cute details from this Michigan wedding and what’s more is that it was mostly made by the bride. They had guests send a drawing of lovebirds with their RSVPs, printed them, and had them displayed at the venue. Their cake, which was made by a friend, also had lovebirds for the cake topper. This wedding is super adorable!
From their Photographer: Cristin is a DIY extraordinaire! She made all of her own centerpieces, her invitations, and her decorations. On her RSVP cards she had people draw a set of lovebirds and then had them printed on large canvases that hung around the venue, so there were hundreds of love birds everywhere. Her bouquet was made from material from her mom’s wedding dress. Her cake was made by one of her friends.
