A Natural Green and White Wedding at a Private Residence in South Haven, Michigan

rn Madison Reiner (24 and a claims representative) and Eddie Blazek (26 and a claims representative) couldn’t imagine a more beautiful, relaxing and memorable place to get married than on the shore of Lake Michigan. As soon as Madison’s aunt and uncle offered their South Haven, Michigan, home for the wedding day, the couple set plans in motion to celebrate there with 45 of their closest loved ones. Their intimate occasion began with a ceremony on a bluff overlooking the lake. As a special touch, Madison’s uncle performed “Blackbird” by the Beatles, which fit the bird motif used throughout the wedding. Back at the house, a tented reception awaited, complete with a little ceramic bird on each place setting. Green apples and white flowers added fresh pops of color along the gray and white floral dining tables. Madison loved how the apples enhanced the natural colors—she even added them to her vintage-inspired cake display. Together with their guests, Madison and Eddie played backyard party games and a personalized cornhole set. Everyone mingled to the tunes of a Spotify playlist the newlyweds created with their favorite songs. After dark, they returned to the shore for a bonfire and released paper lanterns into the night.
