From the beginning of the planning process Michelle & Aaron expressed how important it was for the two of them to have a laid back and beautiful celebration for their wedding day with their family and friends who were traveling from all over the states. Michelle & Aaron’s Wedding day took place at the elegant Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake on a hot July day. Throughout planning Michelle continuously expressed her love for flowers and the family importance behind them. As we discussed florals, Michelle knew she wanted a foraged and organic look with lots of greens and elegant lush white florals. We used the inspiration of organic florals and greens to help design Michelle & Aaron’s classic and romantic summer wedding.
The ceremony took place on the north lawn of The Osthoff Resort, with the beautiful lake as a backdrop. Two large olive branch urns framed Michelle & Aaron as they said their ‘I do’s’ in the presence of their nearest and dearest family and friends. Following cocktail hour on the lawn, guests headed inside for the reception festivities to begin, which were held in a beautiful ballroom within The Osthoff Resort. With a romantic yet sophisticated vision in mind, beautiful white linens draped the tables and gold chiavari chairs elevated the sophisticated and classic look that M&A hoped for. Daffodil Parker brought Michelle’s natural, organic vision to life with stunning floral arrangements and loose olive greens throughout the tablescape. Light grey napkins tied with silk ribbon, enclosed cloud grey taper candles, and a sprig of olive gave the tablescape an elegant and welcoming touch.
After a sophisticated candlelit dinner and a few incredibly heartfelt speeches, Michelle’s dad sang the couple’s first dance song live and there was not a dry eye in the room. Following first dances, Bluewater Kings Band brought everyone to the dance floor and kept the party going all night long.
Congratulations Michelle & Aaron! We are so incredibly happy for the two of you and feel so grateful to have been a part of your beautiful day!
