Vineyard Wedding: Jake & Kaitlin

Vineyard Wedding: Jake & Kaitlin


Jake and Kaitlin were married on September 16, 2017. The following photo collection describes many of their choices on this day.



The Ceremony began at 4:00pm in the orchard.



Their arch was from The Rental Company in Holland, MI. They chose to have petals sprinkled down the aisle to brighten up the grass. The florals were all done by Flower Girl Floral & Events, also based out of Holland. Kaitlin was escorted by her Dad.



Nine bridesmaids and nine groomsman were included in the lineup. The blush colored dresses and the navy colored suits reflected their chosen wedding colors of blush, navy, and gold. The ladies’ dresses were the same hue but were all different cuts and styles.



The chalkboard was placed behind the last row of chairs. It was a 1928 Planning Co. rental.


This budget friendly sign was simple to make (just stain a pallet board and paint your welcome message with white paint) and adds a rustic touch to their cocktail space.


These elegant handouts made sure every guest was included on what was occuring during the ceremony.


The loveseat at their sweetheart table is a 1928 Planning Co. rental.



They chose a plated package through CK Catering. The gold chargers were also selected from CK Catering. The gold color is also seen with the candle-lantern in the centerpiece. The tables were labeled with wine bottles, rather than numbered.



Guests picked up this gold bordered name card made from a wine cork that indicated which table to sit at.



This three tiered white wedding cake was created by C’est La Vie Cakes, based out of South Bend, IN. Notice the elegant pillars that hold up each layer.



Having large floral chandeliers that hung from the peak of the tent frame added to the beauty of the outdoor setting. The lighting decor was done by Schades of Light. Schades can be booked through 1928 Planning Co.


Just outside the tent is the full set of lounge furniture that was rented through 1928 Planning Company. Their cocktail tables had blush pink linens, cinched with a strip of greenery and decorated with a photo in memory of their loved ones who were married before them. The cafe bulbs that are strung in between the two trees will be sufficient light for their guests to continue to enjoy this area after the sun has set.



As the guests begin to hit the dancefloor, the cafe bulbs that were strung by Schades of Light are lighting up the tent beautifully now that night is upon them. Their chosen DJ was from Kaleidoscope Events.



This is perhaps one of the most unique photobooths you can book. This husband and wife duo will travel to you, bringing their vintage van filled with photobooth props to have an extra special take home piece for your guests. For more information visit .



Creating a wedding hashtag was a great way to ensure Jake and Kaitin will be able to find all the pictures their guests had taken at their wedding.



This unique bar sign stayed on theme. All liquor and bartenders were provided by Beverage Specialists of Southwest Michigan.



This napa table and easel were also from 1928 Planning Co. They left a message for their guests to leave them some words for them to read on their anniversary.

We want to thank Jake and Kaitlin for choosing our venue to begin their future together. What a lovely wedding!

Sarah + Ryan’s Natural Vineyard Wedding

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.

Michigan Vineyard Weddings: Nikki + Chris

Vineyard Wedding

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?
