Blue Dress Barn Wedding in Michigan

The first barn wedding takes place at the gorgeous Blues Dress Barn in Millburg, MI. It features Amber and Nate and was photographed this past September by Amanda from Arrae Photography.

From Amber (the Bride)- “Amy at the barn was super nice, friendly, laid back. The rental of the barn included tables and linens and napkins, the paper lanterns & chandelier decorations and some other stuff that made planning a lot easier. We also had a fire pit & we had S’mores which I hear were awesome, I did not have any. The wedding was supposed to be outside, but a sudden downpour at 4 made us move it inside. I really didn’t mind, the pictures are great, we love the barn and I was just happy the weather cleared up right after so our guests could enjoy being outside. The wedding was truly wonderful – a great big party just like we had hoped. The barn was beautiful, the food was great, the kids were adorable, the karaoke was super fun and hilarious, the DJ was great – everything was perfect.

And THE DRESS – I bought a dress in March, and two weeks before the wedding I realized I didn’t like it. I didn’t want to go through the whole drama of dress shopping, and frankly two weeks before the wedding I didn’t have time, so I just casually scoured craigslist for a short dress, which seemed like a lost cause, then BEHOLD – the dress was there. I drove about an hour to see it, bought it for $200 and promptly returned the original dress the next day. Everyone loved the dress, including me – it was great and the best impulse decision I could have made. The designer is Ronit Zilkha – she is a british designer & the dress was called Degas Roses (I guess – that’s what the craigslist ad said anyway). I added an additional crinoline. LOVED IT. Shoes were Nanette Lepore, found them in Chicago – and I really really love the shoes. I was sad to switch to flip flops but they were straight up killing me.”

This wedding looked like a fun time! I love the bride’s shoes and hair piece (which was by Twigs and Honey which we featured a few days ago!) – Congrats to the happy couple!
