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!

Brittany & Braden’s Wedding Day | Alsip, Illinois

Brittany and Braden are shared their Wedding Day with friends and family in style at The Chateau Bu-She’ in Alsip, Ill. The reception hall and ceremony site were conveniently in the  same building, attached but separate. The reception was indoors while the ceremony was hosted under a beautiful covered atrium that allowed the outside light in while still being climate controlled inside.

We really enjoyed spending the day with Brittany and Braden. They’re two very endearing individuals and really perfect for one another! And as the preacher mentioned they shared the most amazing, handwritten vows for one another. Our thanks for Brittany and Braden for having us come out to film your day. May you have joy and peace and as Brittany’s father said enjoy “hanging out” as husband and wife the rest of your lives together!

Ana & Drew’s Lovely Ballroom Wedding Day

Every elegant detail came together beautifully for a perfect Wedding weekend. Their classic Notre Dame wedding was full of love and care which mirrors the way Ana and Drew treat one another with so much love and respect.

 

Krystal & Parker’s Lake James Wedding Film

It was a beautiful day in Angola, IN for Krystal and Parker’s Wedding! Lake James at Pokagan St. Park was the perfect setting. It’s a hotel resort area with a large lawn and lake as a backdrop for photos and just has a great easygoing vibe.

Krystal is the third of the Schwartz sisters to be married and I’ve been privileged to film for all of their weddings so far! The family and spouses are just great individuals who know how to throw a party and have fun. Our best to Krystal and Parker!
