Real Weddings: Elise + Bill

I’m over the moon today to share Elise and Bill’s beyond gorgeous Michigan wedding!  Elise is the sister of my dear friend Natalie (the mastermind behind Pemberley Events), and her wedding was infused with so many charming handmade details and the most amazing organic, lush florals from Petal Play Design. The Blue Dress Barn in Benton Harbor, Michigan has such a quaint, rustic feel, and it was the perfect setting for Elise and Bill’s “kind of quirky, eclectic, vintage” wedding.  The wedding was a true labor of love for the family.  Natalie planned and designed the event, Elise’s father made the wooden flower boxes with chalk sides for the centerpieces, Bill made the cake topper, and Elise’s mother sewed the flower girl dress and even made the wedding cake! Elise and Bill have been together since high school, and their love and joy is so palpable in these beautiful images from Harrison Studio!

    1. It is so fun to see her wedding on your blog, thank you! It really was a labor of love- and my mom did A LOT more than make the cake and my daughter’s dress. She is a crafting inspiration! :)

      I love the center pieces with the chalked numbers. Where did she find them?
