From the bride: 

Exactly 73 years earlier on June 20th, 1943 my grandparents John & Ethelmary Ebers came home to the farm after their wedding at the Holy Trinity rectory located 3 miles south of the farm. To get married on my family’s farm was truly magical. Andrew and I were excited to share the farm and history with all of our friends and family. It was tough planning and visualizing our Michigan wedding from Arlington, Virginia, but everything worked out perfectly. So many people in our lives came early to help make our dream wedding into a reality and we can never thank them enough. Our vendors were truly top notch. We are bursting with happiness with how everything turned out.  

Favorite Thing: Seeing ours guest from all over the globe laughing and busting a move on the dance floor.

A word from the bride: We had too many favorite parts of the day, everything was perfect! We opted not to do have first look and the experience of walking down the aisle was so powerful. Jay and I met through mutual friends, mine from high school and his from college, and we fell in love immediately. We fell in love with Millcreek Barns Wilde as soon as we walked in. We had been looking for something unconventional and had visited about 10 venues before finding Millcreek. We loved it’s simplicity and opted not to do much as far as flowers and decor as the venue itself is so stunning. Jay and I prefer to be outside so this was the perfect venue to be outside, but still have covering in case of rain. Our day was more magical than we ever dreamt possible. Thank you so much to  all of our vendors for helping us to create the truly perfect day.

From the beautiful bride herself: “Our vision for our wedding day was to throw a big end of the summer party at the lake with everyone we love. We wanted to keep the details simple with lots of fresh local flowers, good food, a great DJ and photographer, and just let the natural beauty of the setting do the rest. We couldn’t wait to exchange our vows and we had an absolute blast celebrating afterwards with all of our family and friends!”

Favorite part of the day: Taking a step back and seeing all of our friends and family out on the dance floor.
