Have you been to Bay Pointe Woods for a wedding yet? If you haven’t…..it’s about time you go! What a stunning place that is. The venue itself is nestled into the woods surrounded by trees and right across the road from Gun Lake. Inside you’ll find the most beautiful white, sophisticated space ready for your imagination to take over. Modern yet soft and warm….ready for a celebration of any kind!
We chose this space for this wedding shoot because we knew it would fit our idea of being romantic and close to nature. All the light that pours in through the windows just made our ideas glow with life and brought the natural beauty out of each floral piece. It was truly magical.
Dana, from By His Grace Calligraphy, is amazing. She handpainted this invite and also finished it with her beautiful handwriting.
Alyssa from Fleurology Designs is a crazy talented florist. Everything she brought was gorgeous and I wanted to photograph it forever. Just stunning!
Jewels from Swierenga Jewelers – need I say more?!
I LOVED this ceremony setup. So simple and sleek. The stunning florals growing up from the floors against the hard lines of the black doors plus the warmth of the gold chivari chairs. Perfect.
Wow. When this gorgeous bride walked out with this gown on that’s all anyone could say. It fit her so perfectly and she looked AMAZING!
Tables need decorating but it doesn’t have to always be over the top. The height differences from the candles and flower arrangements were so pleasing to the eye….and the draping of the fabric runners down the center of the table was crazy romantic. Not to mention that warm fire roasting in the background.
A fun little champagne bar – with a mix of furniture from the venue and linens that add a little kick of whimsy.
Bay Pointe Woods has this little section of cottages behind the venue that are available to rent…. This would be the perfect place to get ready with your family and friends before your wedding day. Stress free and fun!
Dang girl….You are smokin’! Sarah from Wild Bees Beauty always takes our hair and makeup ideas to the next level.
Isn’t this cake amazing? All the texture, simple color and those rice paper flowers?! Just wow.
Someone requested that I try my hand at double exposures…..what do you think?!
What an absolutely beautiful day! Let’s do it again sometime!
