Kari is actually my niece, she’s got an artsy approach to life and what she did for her own wedding was pretty much amazing. She designed and sewed her entire dress. She created all the table displays and dreamt up her whole wedding to look as it did and i gotta say she really pulled it off!
The wedding and reception both took place at the Blue Dress Barn (3893 Territorial Road Benton Harbor, MI 49022 (269) 944-1751)
The Blue Dress Barn has a neat little country feel, everything worked very nicely on site. For fun photos before the ceremony a vintage little hot dog/ barbeque stand called the Dairy Korner was our first meeting site. Then we went to the beach for group photos.

Love this couple, we met over some great coffee and from there just felt like friends. We started the day off at Design One Hair Salon doing some girls getting their hair and makeup done. The Design One staff were very pleasant and allowed me freedom to move around. We then did the getting ready at Orchard Hill Church where Josh and Erin met for the first time that morn all dressed up. We drove around in the party bus doing fun photos and group shots all around GR. The Ceremony followed at Orchard Hill Church. After the ceremony we went to Riverside Park and did some toasts and group photos and it was a good time! Upon arriving at my fav restaurant San Chez Bistro for the reception the wedding party donned the funny glasses with noses and mustaches for the whole wedding party in front of their party bus. Gotta love good props!
