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.
Love stories are my passion
