Sarah and Patrick's day was absolutely stunning, but what you must know about these two, is that whatever they do they do whole heartedly! Sarah in my book wins bride of the year for making her own wedding cake (blueberry and thyme cake with lemon curd filling, and butter cream frosting) and sewing dresses for their daughter and all the little flower girls. Together they even home brewed their own pale ale for their guests! This all being done for their Michigan wedding while living in New York!
These two have been in love for quite some time and as the ceremony began you could already tell how much the two families had already become one. The girls carried bouquets filled with the lovely scent of sage and the flower girls carried baskets with rosemary and lavender. The weather was perfect and everything looked, felt, and even smelled beautiful!
Following the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktails (created by the bride & groom), hors d'oeuvres, and a family style dinner catered by Katherine's Catering. Everyone enjoyed dancing while the sun set over the lake and the celebration concluded with a large group photo and bouquet toss! It was an absolute pleasure getting to spend the day with this couple and their kind, generous, and sincerely cool family and friends.
Congratulations to you Sarah and Patrick! You two are amazingly talented and you and your family are such beautiful people inside and out!
A huge thank you to Jennifer Buehrer and her team for their incredible coordinating of the ceremony at the Hillsdale Arboretum and complete set up of the lake house reception. You all made the vision come alive! And a special thanks to my wonderful friend and assistant Erica McIntosh for the beautiful photos you take. And to Jennifer Buehrer again for the untouched reception and cocktail hour shots you were able to sneak in before the party started! You are both so amazing to work with! We make a great team!
