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?
