Garvey Family Barn Wedding | Taylor + Brendan | By Anna


“Right before the ceremony we both felt the most emotional. The moment when we would become husband and wife had finally arrived!”

Taylor + Brendan’s wedding day was a perfect Northern Michigan celebration of love. “We wanted to have our ceremony and reception in one place, specifically an outdoor ceremony in front of a tree and a barn reception. We loved the large maple tree at the Garvey Barn which provided a beautiful ceremony site, and we’re told it was the first time anyone has ever used the area for a ceremony. The landscape and scenery of the location created a lovely atmosphere.”

From separate preparations with their bridesmaids and groomsmen to a beautiful ceremony on the lawn, Taylor + Brendan’s day was starting off perfectly. As the family and bridal party processed down the aisle, Taylor was anxiously tucked away inside the barn. “I will never forget when the barn door I was waiting behind opened and I could see all of our friends, family, and future husband. It is the scene that I play over and over again in my head!”

From that perfect summer ceremony to a barn reception to remember, every moment of Taylor + Brendan’s wedding day was marked by love, fun, and celebration of everything and everyone who had brought them both to this point in their lives.

Taylor + Brendan, you two are something special, and it was a true joy to celebrate with you both. Congratulations!
