August 5, 2023

A stunning Etre Farms Wedding for Liz and Kevin Conrad. On August 5th 2023 at Etre Farms in St. Joseph Michigan, Liz and Kevin said their I do’s in front of family and friends. Liz and Kevin had a magical, rainy wedding day one that made sure their knot will never come loose. The saying is if it rains on your wedding day its good luck. Despite the weather, Liz and Kevin didn’t let it ruin their day. Liz was full of immense joy and laughter throughout the entire day. These two high school sweethearts were going to enjoy their day no matter what. Thankfully Etre Farms has a beautiful ceremony spot upstairs in the luxurious modern white barn, with high ceilings making the ceremony perfect for a backup plan.

Etre farms also has a covered patio where Liz and Kevin had an intimate and emotional first look, where they read their vows to each other and shared some photos. On a sweeter note, Liz had her 89 year old grandpa officiant there ceremony along with there pup Franklin in the front and center watching, he was so excited for them. Liz and kevin had a live band play for cocktail hour and then had their grand entrance to the reception as husband and wife. They went right into their first dance and what a dance it was. they ended with Kevin picking Liz up and circle her around. It was the cutest thing, and seeing Liz’s face full of joy was priceless. They shared several laughs and tears during some of the most beautiful and touching speeches i’ve ever heard. We enjoyed delicious fresh food made right on site in the Etre farms kitchen. These chefs definitely know what they are doing! Liz and Kevin dance the night away and had one of the fullest dance floors i’ve see. Jelliefish productions kept the party going for hours and the dance floor bumping. Liz and kevin even went behind the dj table and played around with the turntable. Liz changed into a short party dress to get her groove on. It was night to remember, and a memorable celebration of love.

If you’re looking for a beautiful venue space with amazing food, amazing staff, and someone to create a space that’s everything you’ve dreamed of this is it. Just take a look at these beautiful photos of Liz and Kevin’s decor and this Etre farm wedding day filled with tons of joy. Thinking of getting married at Etre Farm? I would highly recommend Etre farms to any couple trying to make their decision. Etre Farms is the perfect backdrop that will remain timeless and elegant for many years to come, and look absolutely beautiful in every image captured from your day. White is the perfect color to add your personal touch and color tones to, and there is plenty of white at Etre Farms. It’s also the perfect neutral for us photographers. Etre Farms personal design touch in every room in their space is a photo waiting to happen. Etre Farms bride and groom getting ready spaces are gorgeous, and such a added touch of elegance to add to those precious moments of getting into the dress, and the groom preparing to see his bride. Etre Farms thought of everything when they designed there space. It’s the most beautiful place to get married and celebrate your love, and the staff at Etre Farms is amazing to work with!

A Photographer’s Perspective of Entre Farms Wedding Venue in Saint Joseph, MI

This was a dream venue for me. As a photographer that has a light and airy style, this is a perfect venue for me. The stylish aesthetic and white walls, with lots of natural light is a dream to shoot in. There isnt a bad spot at this venue. literally every single spot at this venue is stunning!

Liz and Kevin theme started with a focus on white florals accented with some greenery and a lot of gold details. There theme was white opulence, and I think the floral choices paired nicely with the natural light and interior of the white barnwood background.

Liz and kevin went in person to visit Etre farms and immediately fell in love, and loved that it was an all inclusive venue. I think the space paired nicely with the couples vision.

Liz choose a beautiful desert rose color for her bridesmaids dresses which paired nicely with the florals and for a summer August wedding.

The feeling of the wedding day was joy. Liz was so joyful throughout her day, and Kevin was very happy too. The atmosphere was calm and the weather was warm, and the rain eventually cleared up for what we were hoping would be some sunset photos but unfortunately the clouds hide the sunset, but it was still beautiful.

The unique touches on all the decor was stunning and the flowers and centerpieces that covered the tables put such a romantic feel on the reception space, and was simply just beautiful to look at.

There were so many moments that stood out from their day, but a couple of my favorites were their vows together and first look, and their incredibly touching speeches from their loved ones, were so touching and special.

I helped Liz and Kevin put a timeline together that allowed time to still enjoy the day and not feel rushed. As I do all my couples, I set up a time to chat with Liz to discuss the details and most important things of the day, and how Liz wanted the order of things to go. Once I got all the details I put together a timeline that would flow perfectly for her day. On the day my job is not only to take great photos but to check in and see how Liz and Kevin are doing. To take notice if they need a break or need some water. I care about how their doing and want to make sure they are enjoying themselves most importantly. I absolutely loved working with Liz and Kevin. They were definitely dream clients and a pleasure to work with!

Testimonial

Here is their testimonial from their day. Amy is the absolute best!!!!! I am so so happy with how our pictures turned out, and just how amazing she was during the whole process. From helping us plan our timeline, working with a large wedding party, making the day run smoothly, she did it all! We had rain on our wedding and Amy didn’t skip a beat, she captured everything we wanted on our wedding day. And then she sent us so many preview pictures, I talked to my other married friends and most only get 10-15 pictures a few days after, Amy sent us over 100 pictures!! She then delivered our full album just over 3 weeks after the wedding, which again is unheard of. We love her and would recommend to anyone!!!
