REAL WEDDING: Maya and Kevin

We had the best time working with Maya and Kevin to create their dream wedding in Saint Joseph, Michigan. Living in the Chicago, the couple was looking for someone a bit more local to help bring everything together, and we were honored they chose us.

The color palette featured creams, shades of blue, and blush, with gold accents. The couple envisioned a timeless, classic wedding inspired by the natural beauty of the Lake Michigan coast.

The ceremony, which took place at Shadowland Pavilion with views of Lake Michigan, was simple and elegant. Lanterns lined the aisle, accented by small floral arrangements from the very talented Back to the Fuchsia. Maya and Kevin were married beneath a wood arch, draped in shades of cream and taupe voile, and accented with a large corner floral arrangement. Following the ceremony, guests were shuttled the short distance to Shadowland on Silver Beach for the reception.

Shadowland is one of our favorite venues in southwest Michigan. With beautiful wood floors and seafoam-colored walls, it’s always a joy to design for their ballroom. Tables were dressed in ivory linens with lovely, floral-patterned napkins. A variety of centerpiece styles were used, all incorporating candles and lush floral arrangements of hydrangea, roses, anemone, and ranunculus.
