Milestone Barn Wedding A Rustic Elegant Burgundy and Navy Summer Wedding

filed in

Milestone Barn Wedding

If you are planning for a rustic summer wedding, make sure to check out Andrew and Cheyenne’s Milestone Barn wedding! Their wedding is a perfect combination of elegance and rustic romance. Unfortunately, their original planning was affected by COVID. So they had to reschedule their May wedding. However, they managed to turn it into a magical summer barn wedding. And there are so many things I love about this wedding! 

The Milestone Barn

To begin with, the aesthetic balance of the event was most evident in their choice of venue. Located in Bannister, Michigan, the Milestone Barn is constructed in a manner that brought out the elegance of natural wood. In fact, the rustic wedding decorations combined the sophistication of roses with the rough edges of thistle. Most importantly, their devotion to their faith clearly shone throughout the entire ceremony! 

Burgundy and Navy Blue Wedding Theme

Next, Cheyenne’s sage green and burgundy bouquet! In addition, this vibrant bridal bouquet of greenery and burgundy flowers arranged by Magical Blooms and I Do’s was so photogenic. To top it off, the bouquet highlighted her natural beauty without distracting from her beautiful dress.

Wedding Ideas for Dog Lovers

For dog moms, please bring your fur babies to join the celebration! For example, their adorable fur baby, Theo, joined us at the bride and groom portrait session! 

Thoughtful and Fun-Loving Bridal Party 

Last but not the least, their bridal party was so fun to photograph! They are thoughtful and sweet people! Of course, surrounded by their sweet and fun-loving friends and family, Cheyenne and Andrew seemed to glow from within throughout this beautiful event. Without a doubt, I am grateful to have a role in spreading their love by capturing this inspirational couple!

Finally, I hope this Milestone Barn wedding inspire you to tell your unique love story! So, are you SVSU alumni like them? Read more SVSU love stories HERE!
