Birchview Outdoor Wedding and Event Center | Ana + Zach's Autumn Wedding
Ana and Zach’s autumn wedding at Birchview Outdoor Wedding and Event Center.
Birchview Outdoor Wedding and Event Center is a spacious barn venue in Linden, Michigan. Ana and Zach loved the warm, rustic space offered by the family owned orchard. With plans of an autumn wedding, they knew the rich colors of fall would compliment the already vibrant Michigan White Pine used to construct the event center’s buildings.
Having hired me in August to photograph the proposal, I was thrilled to be a part of their wedding.
By the end of October, it’s often cold in Michigan. They were blessed with a summer like warm and sunny day. Birchview Outdoor Wedding and Event Center had a convenient bridal suite for Ana to get ready in. Birchview’s bridal suite was only feet away from the ceremony space, and where they’d hold the reception. Once you arrived at the venue, there was no need to leave. Ana only needed to step out to walk down the “aisle” lined with boulders were all removed at one point from the orchard property while preparing fields to plant apple trees.
Zach anticipated his brides arrival, gazing lovingly at Ana as she walked to the alter with her dad. Ana and Zach shared vows in the presence of their loved ones on the ceremonial pergola overlooking the pond. Concluding the ceremony with, “I do!”
Those who were closest to the couple gathered to celebrate this new marriage. After a tractor ride with the bridal party, they made their grand entrance and sat down for a delicious dinner. After the cake cutting and regaining energy, they were ready for their first dance to kick off a night of dancing. This family was ready to dance! Almost everyone was out of their seats moving. Congratulating the couple the first day of the rest of their lives together.
“I’m not photogenic but in the pictures you took not only of the wedding but also the proposal, I was surprised and very thankful they chose
you to do their events. The pictures of Ana and Zack, hell the whole family looked beautiful. I will cherish these photos forever ”
