A Modern-Rustic, Garden Wedding at Southern Exposure Herb Farm in Battle Creek, Michigan

When Courtney (30 and a neonatal nurse) and Michael (37 and a footwear representative) visited the Southern Exposure Herb Farm in Battle Creek, Michigan, as a potential venue for her bridal shower, they immediately fell in love and booked it on the spot. The resulting September wedding perfectly blended romantic and rustic details with an enchanting sense of whimsy. The bride wore her cap-sleeve, trumpet-style lace dress—finished with a big-bow back—with hand-dyed mint heels accented with burlap bows, while the bridesmaids coordinated in mismatched dresses in hues of mint, sea foam and aqua. The reception decor incorporated burlap table runners, glowing chandeliers and lanterns. And succulent terrarium centerpieces, which the couple created in their condo before the wedding day, finished the modern-rustic vibe. —Michelle Thomas
