Angela & Alex - Romantic Rustic

THE BRIDE AND GROOM - There are three things you need to know about the Bride and Groom of Romantic Rustic: they enjoy the outdoors; they are avid about D-I-Y; and contentment is defined as hanging out with good friends sampling microbrewery.

THEIR WEDDING - For their wedding they wanted to combine all of the things that make them happy. They were married by a good friend (who was also a minister) at a Metropark, near trails they had hiked at many times, surrounded by close family and friends. They had a tap set up so they could greet each (adult) guest with a sample of Michigan microbrewery beer.

THE CUPCAKE DISPLAY - In lieu of a cake, they had a bakery design cupcakes with sunflowers and sugar-glass butterflies that were displayed on a stand that was handmade by the Groom. He used slices of wood, from the trunk of a tree he had cut down, for the “plates” of the stand. To add patina to the wood, he charred the edges, sanded the surfaces and finished it off with a coat of stain. For the risers, he use smaller tree branches, cut so the cupcakes could stack nicely.

FRIENDS AND FELLOWSHIP - After dinner and speeches, a cooler of Dragonmead’s Armageddon beer was unveiled to the cheer of their friends. The celebrations were concluded around a fire-pit-marshmallow-roast as sounds of laughter and fading music filled the night.
