Briar Barns Wedding Venue in Grand Rapids, Michigan | Styled Elopement
“No measure of time with you will be long enough. But let’s start with forever.”
-Edward, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1
I recently had the opportunity to participate in an awesome photography workshop- Gather Workshop- right here in Michigan! It was an intimate gathering of wedding photographers who spent the day learning from and sharing with each other. Learning is so important. It helps you grow as an artist, refine your skills, open your mind, and avoid burnout. I can’t recommend it enough! Hosted by Copper and Sage Collective & Intricate Exposures (with special guest @sarajanephotography), the workshop was held at Briar Barns near Grand Rapids, Michigan- a beautiful, rustic venue just off the beaten path. The amazing florals were created by Flowerly Art, and rentals were provided by Emerald Crane. The bride’s gorgeous vintage-inspired dress was by Lisa Emerita, and hair & makeup was provided by the remarkable Jennifer Bartlett (@colordefiance). I don’t want to forget to also mention Eastown Antiques, The Jewelry Lady & Co. + The Coin Ringer, Nantucket Baking Co. + Le Bon Macaron, and Veraly & Co, who all contributed!
