Maddie and Phil chose the Blissful Barn in Three Oaks, Michigan for their stylish rustic wedding. The day started with an outdoor ceremony on the venue’s expansive grounds. Maddie was all smiles as she made her way down the aisle to Phil who was waiting beside the arched arbor that served as their wedding altar. After their first kiss as husband and wife, this laid-back couple had a blast posing for portraits with their wedding party. The joy was evident as Maddie, Phil and their crew played to the camera, striking fun and funny poses and taking the time to include their adorable dogs in the photo fun. And the barn’s antiqued siding provided a backdrop as unique as this totally chill couple!
Maddie was radiant in her fitted lace gown with its sweetheart neckline and court train. She finished her look with burgundy lace pumps and a bold red lip that matched the red roses in her bouquet. Her bridesmaids were chic in burgundy lace cocktail dresses, carrying bouquets of white florals with berry and eucalyptus accents and Phil and his guys were dashing in gray suits. Phil paired his with a white vest and tie while his guys rocked burgundy accessories to coordinate with the ladies.
At the reception, the wooden, farmhouse-style head table was set with a burgundy runner and rose petals and the bridal bouquets were repurposed as centerpieces. Guest tables were draped in crisp white linens and large hurricane candles were surrounded by red rose petals to create the centerpieces. Sheer white fabric was draped from the barn’s ceiling and vintage-inspired chandeliers cast a romantic glow over the space. Signature cocktails included homemade moonshine and on one side of the room, a special remembrance was set up to honor Phil’s dad. As the sun set outside the barn, Maddie and Phil got the party started with their first dance as husband and wife and after dinner guests were treated to a dessert buffet complete with donuts! Congratulations Maddie and Phil!
