A romantic Michigan backyard Wedding with pretty cream and gold details and botanical touches

Today I am thrilled to share this romantic Michigan backyard Wedding with pretty cream and gold details and botanical touches.

Images were captured by Portraits by Mandy ( who is also co-incidentally the Brides sister.)

She says of the couples stunning Michigan backyard wedding…


Marissa and Paul got engaged last July, but because the Groom was in the military and would only be home the month of September, they quickly planned their big day for that month – yes, ten short weeks!

Even more special was the fact that Paul and Marissa started their journey as husband and wife in the very same place Paul’s parents tied the knot thirty years ago – their own backyard at their beautiful property in Saline, Michigan.

Despite the short timeline, no detail went overlooked with a stunning outdoor ceremony, tent reception, and beautiful weather.

The palette was an elegant cream and gold palette with multitudes of botanicals throughout the styling from the stationery, to the ceremony arbour, to the gorgeous tablescape, and everything came together beautifully.
