From the stunning house on Lake Michigan where the ladies got ready to a late-night fireworks display over the corn field, every moment of Samantha & Robb’s wedding celebration was well thought out and perfectly planned. Not to mention, overwhelmingly filled with joy, SO beautiful, and incredibly styled & coordinated by Carrie and her amazing team at Door County Event Planners!
And best of all? Samantha and Robb!! They exchanged handwritten vows and were being the most adorable almost-newlyweds by sharing little glances and whispers while up on the alter. Once their vows were sealed with a kiss, Samantha & Robb exited Stella Maris Church through a sea of bubbles and Door County Trolley escorted them back to Jacksonport for portraits along the shore where Samantha’s family has vacationed for years!
Upon arriving at About Thyme Barn, they were welcome by a sea of guests enjoying signature cocktails and live music by the North Coast Orchestra. This was just the beginning of the romantic candle-lit evening they planned, including some of the most entertaining and well-worded toasts we’ve ever heard, a gorgeous sunset casting its golden light over the field, and a jam-packed barn dance!! Samantha & Robb also planned a fireworks display and the only way we can describe how amazing it was is to say, from beginning to end, it was like a giant grand finale. To top it off, Rob snuck his new bride out toward the corn field to have their own private front-row view of the show. :) With all of their guests cheering behind them, there’s no doubt in our minds that this must have been the most powerful fireworks show Samantha & Robb have ever taken in!!
We are so thankful to have gotten to know Samantha & Robb and had the pleasure & honor of capturing their GRAND celebration! With an amazing team at their side including gorgeous blooms by Flora, sweets from FlourGirl Patissier, and the best wedding planner in all of Door County, they dreamed up a celebration that will never be forgotten. Cheers to this amazing couple!!!
Love, Kelsy & Butch
