Jenna and Shane were married at the beginning of August at the beautiful Northfork Estate in Lansing, Michigan. If you’re looking for a gorgeous barn venue in the Lansing area, you should really check it out. It’s an absolutely stunning venue, and you really can’t go wrong by choosing it for your wedding day venue!
The Northfork estate boasts of beautiful grounds, and has a spacious, well-lit barn with a lovely bridal suite where you and your girls can get ready comfortably!
When I first arrived at Jenna and Shane’s wedding, I immediately noticed how stunning The Northfork Estate is. Tucked away on 50 acres, the grounds are impeccable. The gardens are also gorgeous and buzzing with bumblebees and butterflies that make their way from flower to flower. The main barn is large and well-lit with gorgeous side doors that open up onto a bar/patio area surrounded by the gardens. There are also so many amazing spots on the grounds to take pictures and video on your wedding day. A few examples are: the ponds, the gardens, the barns, a gorgeous fenceline that runs the property, a wooded treeline, and so many more. It’s seriously a photographer or videographer’s dream wedding venue.
Scenic gardens and wedding venue aside, Jenna and Shane chose to decorate with lots of greenery which is always one of my personal favorites. They also chose to exchange letters before their ceremony and read them for their wedding video. If you haven’t seen Emily and Kyle’s blog post, I talk about why I love it when my couple’s exchange letters! It adds such a special touch to their wedding video!
One of my favorite touches at Jenna & Shane’s wedding was that their oh-so-sweet aunt was their wedding officiant. She did an amazing job and had so many sweet things to say about Jenna and Shane. She and her husband were also the winners of the longest married couple during the anniversary dance later in the evening. You can hear an excerpt of the ceremony in the highlight video below. It was the perfect way to highlight the special bond shared by Jenna and Shane.
Jenna and Shane, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day! May you always be as happy and in love as you were on your wedding day!
