Corinne and Jake’s Elegant Barn Wedding in Michigan

When Jake first met Corinne he thought to himself, “Wow, she’s such a babe!” Corinne and Jake first met while grabbing a drink with mutual friends. Corinne says, “We locked eyes and that was it. He got my number, I played hard to get for a few months, he sent me chocolate covered strawberries for my birthday and he won my heart.” They dated for a future months but then Jake moved to the Virgin Islands for six months. Corinne went to visit and ended up falling in love with the islands and Jake even more. The rest is history! When thinking about what she loves about Jake Corinne mentions his kind heart, his dimples and the way he knows her even better than she realizes. Jake also loves Corinne’s heart and how deeply she cares for her family and friends.

Their July wedding at Hidden Vineyard Barn in Berrien Springs, Michigan was beautiful and exactly what they had in mind for the most important day of their lives. When thinking about her wedding Corinne was most excited for the venue! They had both their ceremony and reception at the same place which was so convenient for the guests and really helped the evening flow. Their colors for the day were grey, white & eucalyptus green. This color scheme worked perfectly for their elegant barn wedding. With such a grand venue I love that the colors were understated and played off the colors of the barn and greenery on the property. Corrine and Jake had sentimental and fun personal touches through out their dream wedding such as the mother of the groom’s veil wrapped around the bride’s bouquet and their adorable donut bar. The day after their elegant barn wedding Corinne and Jake hopped on a place to Greece for their honeymoon; adding to their growing list of all the places they have visited together! Corinne says they are planning to see the rest of the world together. Cheers to life full of love, laughter and travel!

 I’m all about preserving those moments that tell your story.

Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,

The ones that move you. Bind you. Bring you together and keep you together long after the memory fades.
