OK YES! I’m so excited to be writing about this wedding today. You might remember these two from their amazing engagement shoot posted earlier last year here. Holy heck that was a fun day. These two have killer personalities and I feel so lucky to have spent their wedding day with them among family and friends.
The entire wedding and reception took place at Tartan Fields, a stunning country club with landscapes that would make you weep. Ok, not really- but it was really quite perfect.
Their ceremony took place indoors in a beautiful room that had lots of natural light and towering ceilings. It felt like the room was giving you a hug. The front altar was adorned with white sheer drapes that were uplit a soft pink. Colleen’s Trousseau gown had layers and layers of magical perfection that floated away from her as she walked. My favorite part of the service was their commitment ceremony. Instead of just lighting a unity candle, they had everyone hold an individual candle- a beautiful way to include the guests in their commitment to one another.
The reception was held in a grand tent on the back lawn. When you walked in, the first thing you would probably notice was the opulent flower chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Petals & Leaves florist really outdid themselves with this one. The cake table was a site for sore eyes if you’re either a Michigan or an Ohio State fan, as this is a house divided and both were represented in their full glory with cakes from Alice’s Piece of Cake. As speeches were given, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. And then the real fun started- what an amazing party this was, including but not limited to Andy’s incredible garter lap-dance. Lol! I wish I could have just moved my stuff into this tent Billy Madison style and lived in it- it was SO beautiful. Colleen and Andy, a heartfelt thank you for having me with you on your wedding day.
