plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

This wedding from Shafer Photography has fun written all over it. From the bright colors, to the DIY details, galoshes, and boat ride, it definitely gets the fun points from me.

From the Bride:
We chose Camp Newaygo because it is on a lake and is a quiet unique setting. This allowed us to have our outdoor wedding and our reception at the same place. It also allowed our whole wedding party to go out on the boat in between the wedding and reception. The wedding attire was something that we thought long and hard about, we wanted it to showcase our personalities. It did just that, with the lime green shoes and suspenders and the rainboots and umbrellas. It was fun and different, we wouldn’t have changed a thing! The whole day was absolutely amazing.

It ended up sprinkling during the ceremony, but just enough to keep us all cool. We had a home cooked meal for dinner, thanks to my wonderful mother and the help of a few family members and close friends. She also made and decorated our wedding cake, which was delicious as always! During the reception Mikey, our DJ, was able to get everyone, and I mean everyone, up off their feet to dance or play games. He did so many things that I never would have suspected and have never seen before – he made it the best reception I’ve ever been to!

Shafer Photography provided a goof booth which added to the unforgettable, crazy fun night! Brandon, our photographer, was not only shooting pictures at the goof booth but also in the middle of the dance crowd. He got great pictures that will help tell the story of our wedding night perfectly. I’d like to send a big THANK YOU to all of the people that helped out at our wedding, you all helped make it perfect!!
