“I don’t want a fashionable wedding, but only those about me whom I love, and to them I wish to look and be my familiar self.” ~Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
Eat, Drink and be Married
We have always marched to the beat of our own drums, and our wedding will be no different. For starters, everything is happening at two neighboring beach houses on Lake Michigan. And the order of events is going to be slightly re-arranged from your standard wedding day agenda. We are going to enjoy a cocktail hour and dinner with our friends and family before we say “I do!”.
Is your curiosity piqued? If you can’t wait to find out more about the location go here or keep reading for more details about our weekend-o-fun, AKA WedFest.
What to wear
This ain’t no fancy-schmancy affair – we’re keeping it real! Come as you are, and be loved for it. Of course, for some people these types of events are
the only a good excuse to get gussied up. If you want a good reason to shop for a cute new spring dress or make sure your best button-up still fits, WedFest is certainly a worthy cause.
Weather permitting, the ceremony will be on the beach. Even if it’s a beautiful day it will likely be chilly in the evening, so plan accordingly. There may also be an opportunity for beach bonfires (yay!) so don’t forget your hoodies!
