We are swooning over today’s Dexter, Michigan wedding. I have had the honor of connecting and becoming friends with Kaitlin (the bride) and owner of Kaitlin Parisho Designs, she is so talented. It is so fun to hear about wedding planning from an event designer + planner’s point of view. Kaitlin and Aaron did an amazing job of mixing rustic, vintage, and glam to have a wedding day that was special to them. Enjoy these photos by Sarah Elizabeth Dunn!
Here is what Kaitlin had to say about their wedding day, “Rustic, vintage, glam were the words at the forefront of my mind when Aaron and I began the journey of planning our wedding. With our families both having roots to farm living, a barn wedding just felt natural and meaningful to us. The minute Laura Waitz, owner of Cottowood Barn, described her vision for how she planned on renovating the existing barn we were immediately sold. They were undertaking a full renovation inside and out, in a very short time frame and we were along for the ride! The barn was completed and every detail was absolutely stunning – including the amazing (and extremely large) chandelier that graces the ceiling of the upstairs of the barn. We chose to take advantage of the beautiful August day we were blessed with and had our ceremony outside overlooking the pond, surrounded by our closest family and friends. Cocktail hour was held in the straw barn and courtyard area, and then it was upstairs for dinner and dancing. Guests were greeted by a breathtaking view of soaring wood beamed ceilings, a stunning Sweet Heather Anne cake embellished with fresh florals that rested upon a gold sequin linen, light and airy white tables adorned with vintage china that we had collected over the 18 month engagement, blue mason jars filled to the brim with a collection of soft blush floral and hanging amaranthus dripping from the sides, and plenty of candlelight. The day was the best of our lives and we are so grateful to have had amazing friends and family to share and support us throughout the process. We are looking forward to celebrating many years together and will cherish all the memories, photographs, and videos from that day!”
Congratulations Kaitlin and Aaron!
