Lucy and Clayton got married on a beautiful summer day at Jacob’s Farm just outside of Traverse City.

This was my first time at Jacob’s Farm, and I loved exploring the grounds of their wedding venue for this fun wedding. Lucy and Clayton got ready at Airbnb’s near each other. Once they were dressed, it was a short walk through the woods to connect with each other. They shared a first look overlooking the lake. These two were so happy to see each other, tears were even shed, I knew it would be a good day. 


Jacobs farm wedding in the summerJacob’s Farm has a beautiful wedding venue space. They had their ceremony in the woods, which was a short tractor ride down a dirt road, past the orchards, and fields. Before being seated for ceremony, guests were treated to apple cider or water as refreshments. The sunlight was streaming through the trees, casting a magical flare above the couple and guests. Lucy and Clayton’s love was affirmed through Jewish traditions during their ceremony. They then said “I do,” and everyone headed back to the barn to celebrate the newly weds.

Jacobs farm wedding receptionThe reception space was beautifully decorated by Juniper and Lace Events. It was decorated in fall tones with lots of orange, burgundy, and green. All vibrant yet rustic colors for their barn wedding. There were candles on the tables and an accent of hanging candles as well. Lucy and Clayton enjoyed a nice evening with their closest friends and family. They shared dinner, then desert -made by my favorite (now retired) baker Cakes by Aunt B).

"Nicole did a wonderful job with my destination wedding. I love my gallery so much, I look back on it often (probably once a week haha). I sent the gallery link to all my friends and family. They also commented on how amazing the photos were. Timeless, crystal clear, edited perfectly, and TONS of photos (seriously, that gallery is huge). My favorite thing about Nicole's photography was that she didn't really pose my husband and I at all, and she just blended right in with the moment. She caught us in so many candids and allowed us to enjoy the wedding day and each other that much more without having to worry about posing or stopping for a photo. She took great shots of my family, wedding party, ceremony, reception, and us as a couple. Couldn't have been more pleased and I know I will cherish these photos for years to come. 10/10 highly recommend. Personally, she is super professional, laid back, and very nice. It's hard not to have a great time and smile with her as your photographer." -Lucy V
