Sarah + Ryan
September 3, 2017
The Vineyard at 12 Corners
From the moment this couple shared their “first-look” at Sarett Nature Center to the final song that played, it was obvious they just wanted a natural, laid-back, and fun celebration with their family. It just happened to also be a beautiful ceremony and reception with well thought out details and a blush/navy color scheme that worked so well with the natural vineyard surrounding.
We don’t always get to comment on non-bride or bridesmaid attire – but this groom and his fantastic daughter were rocking the navy and gold details found elsewhere throughout the wedding. Polka dot tie, patterned handkerchief, baby’s breath flower crown, and gold sequins for the win!
Sarah & Ryan provided their own arch to serve as a focal point during their apple orchard ceremony. Bridesmaids added some color to the greenery with all shades of pink dresses and bouquets of wildflowers. Even the ring box took on the natural vineyard vibe.
Farmhouse tables, the most beautiful floral wreaths, a naked cake, and simple gold framed seating chart pulled in all of this couple’s natural style. Sarah & Ryan even left guests with a packet of wildflowers to “let love grow” long after the wedding ended.
All in all – this was just one of those weddings where you felt happy the whole way through. Such a lovely family and we were so honored to share this day with them!
If you want to get a better feel for Sarah & Ryan’s happy day – check out the video highlights from Voglewede Multimedia – this pretty much sums up how special their natural vineyard wedding was.

This past September, we had the pleasure of hosting one of the more eclectic Michigan vineyard weddings at The Vineyard at 12 Corners. We were so happy to have the opportunity to work with a couple who brought so much of their personality into creating a fun, unique, and memorable wedding experience for them and their guests! I loved seeing some bohemian and eclectic elements that work great for Michigan vineyard weddings, from the bride’s long flowing hairstyle and floral crown, to the couple’s creative tattoos!
What better way to personalize a wedding ceremony than to include a four-legged family member? Nicki and Chris chose to have their dog be the ring bearer, and stay for the party too! For more tips on how to create a personalized wedding ceremony, check out 1928 Planning Co.’s blog!
The ceremony was held in The Orchard, and the couple loves craft beer so they included a beer ritual!
At The Vineyard, we love hand-lettered signage! This couple added a personalized touch with DIY wedding decor, and these DIY signs were one of my favorites! They added a masculine element with the cigar bar, which had some great vintage finds as decor.
The color palette was a beautiful “Tiffany” blue and red. The couple had rustic and eclectic touches in their DIY decor, and I love how they infused their love for craft beer and wine in so many elements of the wedding! Craft beer and local wine is such a fun trend, and it truly makes Michigan vineyard weddings unique! You’ll see below that Nikki and Chris chose a favorite craft brew as their wedding favors, cleverly called “Summer Love”. If you need some color inspiration and you love craft beer or local wine, you may need to look no further than the label of one of your favorites!
One of the most unique touches to this wedding was the replacement of a traditional wedding cake with pies! Nikki and Chris had Hoosier Mama in Chicago bake the pies, which I think is such a great idea for Michigan vineyard weddings like this one. Doesn’t that look delicious?
