There is nothing like a sweet, country wedding to get my heart beating a little faster. Jamice and Aaron’s adorable celebration took place Mill Creek Barn in the Michigan countryside this summer.  Is it just me or does Michigan seem like the most enchanting place to get married? And what isn’t to love about this wedding? Bowties, wildflowers and craft paper elements–amazing!

I got about two photos into this and said to myself Tec Petaja took these!!! I adore everything he shoots and this is no exception. His photos have such a lovely quality to them. Beautiful wedding!

Invitations: The designer is from California called Twig and Fig. We purchased the invites at a store in Chicago called Paper Doll Inc. The designer was super helpful. She even sent me the names of the fonts, so I could make the hotel information card to go along with the invitation set. I made the Save the Date from a design that was shared on merrimentdesign.com.

I LOVE all these barn weddings! I haven’t been able to find any barns in the St. Louis area. Authentic barns, that is. There are a few venues going for that barn feel, but it’s not natural.

I love the paper pages. How was the printing done? Is that something you can do yourself on a regular printer?

Where did the groom get his suit? I love it!

Stephanie | Reply

I also love the groom’s suit!

Janice | Reply

The groom’s suit is from Macy’s. It’s Alfani. He got it tailored, and that’s how he got such a great fit. I think he spent more on the tailoring than the suit.

I printed the wedding programs on brown paper lunch bags on my printer at home. I also printed the cookie favor dinner menus on my home printer.
