Journeyman Distillery wedding | Three Oaks, MI | Natalie and Eric

The journeyman!

What a space! Natalie and Eric hosted their Journeyman Distillery wedding in Three Oaks, Michigan. We love Michigan weddings Journeyman is actually a distillery, restaurant and event venue all under one roof. The wedding and reception took place in Warren Hall one of three event spaces on the third floor. The upstairs event areas are full of natural light which are perfect for cinematography. Everything about the space was warm, inviting and full of character. The building space was originally the feather bone factory, a corset and buggy whip maker some 100 years ago and still bears old industrial remnants as reminders of that. The bottom floor of the space is the Staymaker restaurant, whiskey distillery and store. If you enjoy the sweet smell of hash brewing and the savory aroma of food on the grill you’ll love this place. I liked the chill vibe of the restaurant and whiskey bar with tasting tours going on. You might think a wedding wouldn’t want to share a building with a restaurant full of strangers but that’s kind of the culture of an up scale distillery. People, food and drink and social interaction. The Journeyman is known for it’s excellent whiskey and having special drinks & whiskey on site is a boon for many wedding guests.

The wedding!

Bride and groom got prepped on site, did their first look in an empty bar on the 1st floor. Then we went upstairs to the venue where we enjoyed their photo session in the Grainery. They had a beautiful ceremony right at sunset we could watch through the windows. Then it was a room flip from ceremony to reception while guests enjoyed cocktails nearby. Floral and event design by Snapdragon designs and Cyndi Basker from Celebrated Events. Guests enjoyed day of party favors, catering and drinks by Journeyman. A nice advantage of having a restaurant/distillery in house! The sights and sounds of Natalie and Eric’s wedding were absolutely lovely. We had a fantastic time seeing their event unfold in before our eyes and our cameras! Eric was a former professional soccer player and he and his friends put some of the energy and endurance required for soccer towards their dancing! It was a wild dance floor let me tell you.

From their first look when we arrived to getting down on the dance floor Natalie & Eric’s energy and chemistry together was amazing. Congrats to the new Mr and Mrs. Gehrig!

Anne & Matthew’s April Wedding in Niles, Michigan

Several years ago I filmed for Anne’s sister Leigh and her husband Nate on their wedding day and what an epic day it was. Needless to say I was thrilled when Anne’s mother requested our services again for Anne and Matthew’s wedding. They’re such an amazing, genuine and good looking couple! As their dad said for both sisters he knows how to build beautiful daughters who in turn bring amazing son-in-law’s into the family!

We started the day with the ladies getting ready at the bride’s family home while the guys got prepped at the ceremony location – First Presbyterian Church in Niles, MI. The reception was hosted by VenueND at Downes Ballroom in Notre Dame Stadium.

Our crew Zarah and Sam did an awesome job filming. I’m actually jealous they got to have all the fun shooting as I was filming a previous engagement but I’m proud to have taken part as editor in chief! Thanks again Anne and Matthew, we hope you enjoy your Wedding Film as much as we did making it. Now check out their Trailer!

 

 

Emily and Steve’s Wedding Filmed at Gable Hill Barn

One thing we love is outdoor weddings in the summer. I’ve always thought the sights the sounds of nature really enrich the wedding experience, whether it’s being outside the whole day or just going out for a few pictures. That certainly was the case for Emily and Steve who hosted their wedding at Gable Hill Barn in Marcellus, Michigan. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple who it’s clear are deeply loved by the many friends and family who came out to support them on their wedding day. Thanks for filming Mitch and Mary. Our best to the newlyweds!

Michelle and Andrew’s wedding at MillCreek Barns

Wow, MIchigan is such an amazing place for weddings! I love the pristine nature and weather that exists there. Michelle and Andrew obviously do too as they chose to host their day near St. Joseph, Michigan. They went with a refined/vintage theme and had their reception at the very cool MillCreek Barns which worked very well for them and their day. The wedding was beautiful as were the couple and their guests!
