Sweet people well loved by family host a beautiful wedding at Grand Belle in Holly, Michigan
Sarah and Justin gathered their closest family and friends to host their wedding at the Grand Belle in Holly, Michigan. The groom wore the best grey converse and the bride had on her perfect white sneakers. Sarah's lace covered wedding dress suited the venue perfectly.
The venue the Grand Belle just outside of downtown Holly, Michigan is a beautiful refurbished barn and grounds. The ceremony takes place just in front of the barn on the grass lawn. With the wedding party entering the ceremony from the huge barn doors and then taking a walk down the grass covered aisle to land at the perfect spot just under the big maple trees.
One of my absolute favorite things about their wedding was their grandmothers who served as their flower girls. Let me repeat that...GRANDMOTHERS AS FLOWERGIRLS! As a person who just adored my own grandmother I would relish the opportunity to relive my wedding and have her be my flower girl, she would have loved that!
The lesson here is to hold your family front and center can be a beautiful thing, creating the most amazing memories of your wedding day, not just for the two of you, but for your family as well. Support from your community whether it be family by blood or your choosing is nothing we take for granted.
Congrats to Sarah and Justin! Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding day Officiant.
Intimate wedding in Ann Arbor Studio Space
They landed at a beautiful space in Ann Arbor called Studio Studio where the serene white walls and elegant atmosphere lended itself beautifully as the backdrop for their intimate wedding day. As close family and friends gathered and were seated we began their ceremony, sharing bits of their love story along the way.
The great part of having a intimate wedding is being able to see and hear everyone's reaction to their wedding ceremony. I could see the smiles and tears of joy, the emotion family and friends had for their love was a beautiful sight.
And can we talk a moment about the wonderful wedding party they created to stand with them on their wedding day? They gathered their best people and asked them to stand with them. Remember, traditional roles no longer exist...do what serves you best on your wedding day.
To stand with a couple on their wedding day is an honor, one I never take lightly. When hired as your professional wedding Officiant it is my job to command your wedding ceremony, to take charge of the moment so you can truly relax and enjoy your wedding ceremony. I do this commanding and taking charge gently and always with a warm smile. Rest assured your family and friends will be left wondering how long we've known each other because it will feel like a lifetime. Makenzie and Ryan were no exception. As I greeted their community on their wedding day I knew just how loved the two of them were and how wonderful their wedding day was going to be.
Ryan and Mackenzie, congratulations to the both of you on handling all the changes of your wedding day plans with grace and smiles. I'm sure there were plenty of rough patches but you certainly did not let them deter your love and your happily ever after!

Italian inspired Michigan intimate backyard wedding - filled with so much darn love!
Nicole and Harry celebrated their wedding ceremony at their Nona's home in Michigan. When I pulled into the tree lined drive I was taken aback by how it felt as though I was driving in the Italian countryside. And this was just the beginning of what would be one of the most love filled intimate wedding ceremonies I would take part in that summer.
When I arrived I was greeted by a very welcoming family who were all just so excited to be with each other and to celebrate Nicole and Harry. The groom, Harry walked me to the ceremony location and we reviewed the protocols on where everyone would be standing for the wedding ceremony. I was then able to say hello to Nicole before we began the wedding ceremony. Nicole is the kind of person that when you see her you feel welcome, you feel invited and seen. On her wedding day Nicole was all beauty and grace and the reflection of her families love.
When the time came we all took our places in front of the trees for the ceremony. Nicole and her dad made their way down the aisle and together Nicole and Harry stood ready to begin their married lives.
We moved through their wedding ceremony sharing little bits of their love story along the way. They made the choice to write their own wedding vows, which I always encourage! And man were they good! They invoked their own love for each other and their hopes for their future is a beautiful way.
That sunny and warm summer afternoon Nicole and Harry gathered under a tent with their families and celebrated their nuptials.
Planning a intimate wedding in your own backyard offers so many wonderful options. you get to customize every aspect. And when keeping the guest count lower you can spend a little more on some of the things that matter most to you, be it flowers, food or decor or attire. Anything goes because it truly is your wedding day done your way.
Congratulations to the happy couple and their beloved family.
