Kristen is one of those people who just exudes happiness, and constantly has a giant smile on her face. I was lucky enough to spend an entire day with her early in our planning, driving all over the county, looking at beach properties, resorts and barns, to find the perfect location for her intimate wedding. She wanted the entire weekend to be relaxed, fun, and centered around spending as much time with their family and friends as possible. To achieve this, she couldn’t have chosen a better location—Kristen & Jason hosted their wedding at Sun ‘n Sand Resort in South Haven, which allowed every one of their guests to stay on site, and be a part of the entire weekends activities, from a welcome dinner & bonfire, to the day after brunch.
The ceremony took place on the grounds, with the aisle lined in vintage sap buckets filled with mounds of baby’s breath, and a canopy swagged in simple burlap. The kids were some of the cutest I’ve seen, with my very favorite being the “flag bearer” in his adorable seer sucker suit–helped here by one of the flower girls who took a liking to the flag over her flowers.
The reception was tented next to the properties pond, looking out over an expansive yard and fields. Each table was different, and I especially loved the runners on the tables, which were made from fabric collected by the bride–every one was different, and was perfectly paired with centerpieces that were composed of mixed milk glass vases & votives, vintage milk bottles (embossed with the grooms last name, Spriggs!) and an assortment of blue, white and yellow blooms. The table numbers were hand made by the bride!
Guests were called to dinner by the sounds of a bagpiper, and during the reception guests enjoyed a traditional pig roast provided by CK Catering, a lemonade stand, and the eclectic sounds of The Michaels, a fun musical duo that played a little bit of everything! Kristen & Jason, thank you again for letting us be a part of your special day—we were so thrilled to be able to witness your beautiful wedding day, filled with love, family & fun!
