Dawanna and Ryan desired a family-centred intimate wedding in a very special setting. Family is everything for this loving couple. In fact, they both fell deeply in love with each other for a similar reason. Ryan loves and respects the way Dawanna has raised and been an outstanding mother to her four children. Dawanna loves the way Ryan unconditionally loves her and her children.
They truly are best friends. What started out as a building site work connection, led to prayers answered and 5 years later, they are happily married. Ivy House is a stunning property, which caught their eye from the beginning. It hosts an atmosphere of love and cares about all the little details and that’s what captured their hearts.
Dawanna wore both a ceremony and a reception wedding dress. Ryan looked fantastic wearing a three-piece ivory colored suit and tie with tan shoes. The bridal party looked awesome too, in beautiful silver blue satin silhouettes for the bridesmaids and ivory suits for the groomsmen. White hydrangea boutiques were lovely too.
Welcome to ‘the experience of a lifetime’ at the splendid Michigan Wedding Venue – Ivy House. Bridal couple Dawanna and Ryan planned an intimate family, summertime wedding at Ivy House. Saugatuck is known for its pristine beaches and has been recently voted as one of the most beautiful towns in America. Located in the city of Saugatuck on the eastern shoreline of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Kalamazoo River. As a traveling wedding videographer/photographer, Saugatuck is a great destination for a wedding.
This is my first opportunity to cover a celebration at the brand-new wedding venue Ivy House. Owners Candice and Brian dream big, and they have delivered a marvelous property for those seeking to marry in Michigan. Their years of experience in the industry has led them to create a thoughtful and inspiring space to make dreams reality. They also have another venue in Holland, Michigan – Port 393.
Ivy House was completed in 2021 and is a nature-focused greenhouse for unforgettable celebration experiences. I’m all for travelling to new locations and trying new things, especially when someone I trust recommends it. Trust me! Ivy House, Michigan is gorgeous, professional, and memorable for all.
