Crooked Creek Ranch Wedding | Kris + Dave


It was great to see so many smiles by everyone around us all night. My cheeks were literally hurting the next day from smiling so much.”

Kris and Dave chose the gorgeous venue of Crooked Creek Ranch which is located in Cedar, Michigan. “The barn setting itself was amazing for our size group, rustic charming and classy as far as barns go. I loved that the venue offered three separate locations for the ceremony, cocktail hour and barn for a more interesting and lively night for our guests. The farm setting combined with the lake, bridal house, and other amenities set this location apart.” “It’s so calming to see the fields, lake, and rustic buildings all together.”

The morning of their wedding, they both woke up excited and eager for their big day. Kris got ready on site with all her closest friends and family. She managed to stay calm during the rush of her busy morning and through getting ready, but got butterflies the second she stepped into her dress. “As soon as I walked down the aisle that afternoon that all went away and I was overcome with happiness. I was really feeling the love from everyone in the room and from Dave.”

Their ceremony was full of unique moments that made it truly “them”. Which is one of the things that Kris loved most about the day. “It was so special that we had Dave’s brother as the officiant and he did an amazing job. I loved that the ceremony was emotional at times and also just plain fun. We laughed, we cried, we made guacamole.”

As Dave looks back on their beautiful day their were many moments that stuck out for him, “the ceremonial messages to one another followed by sealing in the bottle. The ceremony guacamole making. The first dance, the the food, the band and the dance floor with our friends and family.”
