Black Star Farms Wedding | Christen + Zach


Amazing, beautiful, and joyous.

No three words could describe the wedding of Christen and Zach better. These two tied the knot at the beautiful Black Star Farms located in Suttons Bay, Michigan. “We loved the rustic, yet upscale feel of this location. The vineyards offered such beautiful natural scenery with peeks of the GT Bay that we knew would be beautiful during our ceremony. We also loved all of the different spaces available at Black Star Farms and we utilized much of the space to our advantage (indoor banquet rooms, outdoor patio, the vineyard, the barn, etc).”

As their day began, Christen was getting ready in the comfort of the Inn with her bridesmaids and female relatives which kept her calm during the morning and through preparation. That is until she started to get the final touches done on her makeup that her nerves began to come. “I started to feel extremely nervous, realizing that I was about to get married!! I think up until that point, it hadn’t really set in yet and as the final touches were being applied, my heart started racing with both nervousness, but mostly joyful excitement.”

Looking back on the moments that stick out, there were so many! Walking down the aisle, parts of the ceremony, the toasts, and dancing to the Chava Negillah (the chair dance). Both Christen and Zach found the Ketubah signing and the ceremony to be the most emotional parts of the day.

Christen concluded the say as “Beautiful, joyful, and a blur!”

Congratulations Christen and Zach! May God bless your marriage.
