A Castle Farms Game of Thrones Wedding | Charlevoix, MI

If you’ve read through my blog before, you know that I LOVE a Castle Farms Wedding! One, because Castle Farms was our wedding venue when Zach and I got married, and two, well I mean…have you seen the venue? I feel like Castle Farms is this hidden treasure gem that we have here in Northern Michigan. Honestly, I had never even heard of it before Zach and I got engaged and his mom suggested it to me as a possible wedding venue. As soon as we set foot on the grounds, I was in love. If you’ve never had a chance to visit, I highly recommend you go! So as you can imagine, when I saw that Kara from Melian Photography was planning a Game of Thrones wedding shoot at Castle Farms, I knew I had to participate.

What Better Place to have a Game of Thrones Wedding than at Castle Farms?

Speaking of Game of Thrones, I thought it was awesome that Kara planned this whole shoot to land on the same day as the very last episode of Game of Thrones. What better day to host a Game of Thrones wedding? It was so fitting especially considering how gorgeous everything from this day turned out!
