Sarah + Pat | Eclectic Southern Michigan Wedding
This is a wedding that I will never forget - partially because Sarah is a friend of mine and my favorite makeup artist (look up Dollface Bridal Beauty and Designs), and also simply because this wedding was seriously cool. Sarah has a fabulous sense of style and pulled off an amazing wedding in Jackson.
I met Sarah at her house for detail photos and getting ready - and these details do not disappoint. I mean, seriously??? Ps. The florals were done by my favorite florist - Erin from Sage Green Events. Just perfection. And Sarah's dress? A custom combination of a dress, a beaded shawl, and belt beautifully put together by House of Devaughn in Jackson.
One of my favorite moments of the day was the first look with the bride and her son - who upon seeing his mom as a bride, ran into the house, closed the door behind him and yelled out YESSSSSS before coming back out for a hug. How priceless is that?
On the way to the ceremony, Sarah shared a few minutes via Facetime with her dad who was hospitalized shortly before her wedding and was not able to attend. Hold your loved ones close, friends. You never know how important a simple Facetime chat could be.
Sarah and Pat were married at Celebrations Wedding Chapel in Horton (a favorite of mine), and this place was the most packed I have ever seen it haha.
Portraits followed in downtown Jackson - unfortunately, the Bright Walls were taken over by high school dance photo takers, so we opted for an old favorite and the awesome floral one by Grand River Brewery.
Of course, I had to get a photo of Sarah and I being extra AND I saw the Jackson peregrine falcon out flying around and obviously freaked out and too this terrible photo of her....don't be alarmed by my fabulous skills.
The reception was at Forty-nine South in Jackson with a stunning cake by the Blue Julep and just about Sarah's entire house was dumped into the front room to create a chill lounge area. The long tables were littered with an eclectic collection of colored glass, gold candlesticks, assorted bold colored candles and fruit mixed with geometrics and navy and gold accents. Basically perfection. Sarah spent the year leading up to her wedding gathering all of her decor and glass wear and even the rattan dessert stand from various thrift stores, and it paid off big time. And can we talk about the amazing pampas grass crescent moon floral backdrop piece that Erin created on the spot?
Of course, Sarah had a second after dinner look with a new hair style and different, easier to dance in dress. Because why not?
