We’re surrounded by fresh, new snow here at Castle Farms, so we wanted to spread a little warmth by sharing some wedding inspiration from a sunny wedding day this past summer! Kelsey and Justin got married on a beautiful September Saturday in what truly was a whimsical celebration. From the lace bridal gown to the chandelier hanging at the ceremony all the way to the lanterns and chests overflowing with flowers at the reception, their wedding had whimsy, rustic touches everywhere you looked, creating a memorable affair for all guests to enjoy! Take a look at their amazing wedding photos from Emily Rae Photography, and read what Kelsey and Justin had to say about their wedding below!
“Justin and I picked to get married at the Castle in September because it was the perfect venue to show off beautiful Northern Michigan in the early fall. Our friends who traveled absolutely loved the sights, and thought the Castle was the most original wedding venues they’d ever seen. We wanted to do something different. We didn’t want a run of the mill wedding. How better to showcase that, than getting married at a castle! Justin and I are from the country, we wanted our wedding to show our personalities, which is why we went with a shabby, chic, burlap and lace type theme. The image of the Castle matched our theme perfectly. The stone work in the King’s Great Hall complimented our decoration choices. Smitten Events helped us drive home the idea we had pictured in our heads. Janelle and Ellen were amazing to work with… I can’t explain the relief of literally having nothing to worry about on our wedding day. The entire team at the Castle was amazing from start to finish. Though the location hosts countless weddings a year, they have an incredible way of making your day feel as though it’s the most important day, not only to you, but to them as well. Our wedding went off without a hitch, thanks to the Sarah’s incredible coordination. It was remarkable. We also loved how many different options the wedding offers. We chose the King’s Great Hall and the Queen’s Courtyard, because they were what best accommodated our large number of guests, and complimented our decoration choices… But any of the locations at the Castle are amazingly picture perfect.”
