Here’s a beautiful rustic chic Michigan wedding you won’t want to miss! Ashley and Jonah tied the knot earlier this year at the Lawton Heritage Community Center. Their wedding had some amazing details all captured by Chelsea from Chelsea Brown Photography. Before you see the photographs the bride Ashley tells us, “The best part of our wedding day was focusing on the fact that we were getting married, because that is the most important part of the day! There is no need to worry about things going wrong on your wedding day, because at the end of the day you get to marry your best friend, and that will last far beyond all the decorations, flowers, and food. Our all cobblestone venue really inspired our rustic chic design for our wedding.” Click to see the photos…

Keri + Drew’s shabby chic wedding is absolutely stunning. Their Iowa shabby chic wedding has so many beautiful details including mason jars, weathered furniture, and flowery greenery that pops. Keri and Drew went out incorporating the color green into their wedding details from the brides shoes and table centerpieces to their delicious green candy table. Using more than just the color green, one of the most unique and creative ideas Keri and Drew used in their shabby chic wedding was the use of plants as guest favors. Photographing their Iowa wedding was Emily from Emily Crall Photography. Emily fills us in on some of the couple’s wedding day fun.
Emily tells us, “Keri and Drew were married in the hot, muggy Iowa summer, but no amount of heat could overshadow their beautiful day. Every little attention to detail was carefully created and crafted by their family and friends, who spent days and weeks preparing the grounds for this wedding. The groom’s mother owns Sisters’ Garden & Bloom, where the reception was held, and so there was an endless supply of unique vintage furniture, candles, antiquities, apothecary goods, tableware and chandeliers. Since the groom himself is a landscaper, he created a sort of sandy beach area as well as a gurgling tiny waterfall and stream in the backyard area. Keri and Drew had guests write their well-wishes on stones and Drew will use those to incorporate into a landscaping design at their home.”

Aubrey and David’s Washington DC wedding is stunning. The wedding greens, those beautiful poms, gorgeous dress, the elegant ceremony and reception setting … you’ll love this wedding! Their photographer, Stacey from Stacey Vaeth Photography, did an amazing job capturing this couple’s love for one another and the celebration. After a few words from this bride and photographer, you’ll see what we mean!
Aubrey, the bride, tells us, “Aside from the perfect weather and amazing venue, I think what made the wedding special to us was how we were able to blend two cultures – Persian and American – throughout the wedding and reception. We had elements of both in the ceremony, the food, and even the dancing. And, of course, having all of our family and friends together in one place and witnessing them “blend” with each other was also extremely special to us. We also loved that having the wedding at the Meridian House allowed us to have an urban wedding with an intimate feel.”
Stacey, the photographer, provides us with some additional details about the day: “Aubrey and David had the most beautiful day. The mother of the groom hand-designed the gorgeous Persian table for the ceremony. Relatives and friends from both sides of the family were integrated into the marriage vows, and also continued to play key roles throughout the evening, from delivering hilarious toasts to keeping everyone on the dance floor. The Meridian House, of course, was a spectacular venue, and their weather could not have been more perfect.
But what really stood out to me was how laid back both bride and groom were throughout the day. They trusted their vendors to do the jobs that they were hired to do, let go, and just enjoyed themselves. I think that energy really translates through their photographs. In her beautiful toast to her new husband, Aubrey said to David: “Thank you for giving me the wedding of my dreams.” Well said!
