Sharing a beautiful wedding from last October. We loved working with Emily and Jake on there fall wedding in Michigan. Love all the rich colors and rustic/home-made details. A Special thanks to everyone who helped make their day great.


Just a little something from the Bride:
Jake and I met through mutual friends at a bonfire. I was reluctant to go to the bonfire, but I got convinced. His friends kept telling me we were perfect for each other, I really didn’t care. There was not enough chairs at the fire so i decided I would back my truck up to the fire and sit on the tailgate. Across the back of my truck it said ” I got my daddys money, and mommas good looks.” Jake immediately saw it and said OMG I have always wanted to meet the girl that drove that truck! I said well here I am. We talked all night, it was love instantly. We started dating a week after, and 3 years later he proposed on christmas day, after we spend the morning with both of our families. We had gotten home to relax, when he said there is another gift under the tree. I leaned down and said no there isn’t, he said look again. After 5 minutes crawling around under the tree i sat back and found it under a blanket on the quilt rack. A small box. He got down on one knee as i opened it and asked me to be his wife.

The feel of our wedding was laid back, and fun, we are outdoors people, so we knew it had to be outside, rain or shine! The day I had always known, and I had told jake when we got engaged. The day was my fathers birthday October 23. My father passed away, and this was my way of knowing he would be there, and a way to celebrate not only us but him on a special day. I am a very hands on person, I love crafts, I made many different elements of the wedding from the centerpieces to the cupcake table stands. My awesome neighbor from the cabin made an arbor for us made out of birch trees with mason jars hanging from it! Our wedding day was so much fun for both of us, meeting before the wedding made the day extra special we spent time together before all the craziness began, I would recommend this to every bride and groom.
