Travel - Michigan

September 03, 2014

August was a month marked by travel with trips to New York, Chicago, Ann Arbor, Charleston and Louisville. We were a bit aggressive with our plans heading to a new city each weekend, but we had a lot of fun and managed to ditch some of summer's unbearable heat. This past weekend was my first trip to Michigan besides a brief trip through the Detroit airport. We explored Ann Arbor and went to an amazing wedding on a farm outside of Ann Arbor in Chelsea.

The farm was Misty Farm in Chelsea and if any place could make a city girl turn country this was it. Rolling hills, a pond and a lovely farm house and barn made this place so relaxing and serene.

The bride and groom thought of every little touch in their wedding with lemonade at the outdoor ceremony, a mojito cocktail hour with corn hole, dinner catered by the famous - Zingerman's, a dancing shoe flip flop basket, and jam that told guest to "spread the love."

One of the coolest things was that the reception dance party was in a refinished barn that they decorated with lights and paper lanterns and a desert table.

I love going to weddings now that I am in the process of planning one. Deciding the days colors seems nearly as important as the venue. I love the kelly green bridesmaid dresses paired with yellow and white wild flowers, an antique necklace, a messy bun and pink lips. See what I mean by every detail?

On Sunday, we toured Michigan's campus and were really impressed by their Law School and its gothic detailing.

I also had to share the wedding hosts incredibly unique home in Ann Arbor, because how many houses have you seen with a tree growing in the middle of the living room?
