Black Star Farm Wedding | Michele + Eugene


It was almost no contest when it came to a wedding venue for Michele + Eugene.
“Originally, Black Star Farms was third (of three) on our list of venues, and it was the last we toured. When we drove onto the property, as the sweeping vineyard on the hill came into view, and it immediately went to the top of the list. Everything was so pretty, and we loved the idea that we could use several parts of it so our guests could progress throughout the property and really get a feel for how lovely the Leelanau wine country is.” The couple had been through so much in the past year and a half and were eager to walk down the aisle to say I do. While reflecting on their past and imagining their future, they still couldn’t have anticipated the day that was inshore for them. “In complete transparency (and not just lying to look good on the internet), we both felt terrible that morning and were just trying to survive for the first several hours! Both of us felt sick from stomach issues and lack of sleep (we stayed up too late working on our first dance). We sent Eugene to a spare room to try to take a nap and feel better, while Michele managed to worry herself sicker about the weather forecast! When we finally saw each other during our first look, stress and nerves were finally calmed and it hit us that this was really, finally happening.” No mater what could’ve gone wrong, the one thing that mattered was the all-encompassing love Michele + Eugene have for one another. They had many moments to take in the scenery, opportunities to focus and be present, and finally- plenty of time for dancing.

Thank you for all the silly moments, raw emotions, and genuine fun!
