Sarah and Teddy’s Michigan backyard wedding is a true family affair! Held at Sarah’s aunt and uncle’s farm in Sawyer, their vision was a garden party feel with rustic elements and a bit of DIY flair. Nearly all of their nearest and dearest helped with the day’s details. Sarah’s younger sister created the stationery, her older sister played during their ceremony, and her father lit the reception tent. Teddy is a cellist and composed the song that played during the bridesmaids’ processional, and his father created beautiful pottery vases for the cocktail tables. Sarah’s mother is a photographer and created photo escort cards, while Teddy’s mother handmade a beautiful quilt for the couple featuring family wedding photos. The couple even created favors of pickled cucumbers and peppers from their garden! Stella Event Design designed arrangements in shades of blush and pink to complement the lush gardens on the property, which not only played host to the festivities of the day but also housed many guests who chose to camp out in “Tent Village”. This day couldn’t be more of a perfect labor of love, and we adore the beautiful way it was captured in the gorgeous images from Jen Lynne Photography!
