Award Winning Frutig Farms Hosts Sons Wedding Celebration
Congratulations to Edward and Melissa on their wedding at Frutig Farms in Ann Arbor. This was a family affair from start to finish as Edward is the son of Kelly and Ed, Frutig Farms owners. Barn weddings have become very popular in the last ten years. They offer clients a unique blend of history with the space for large wedding parties. The open simplicity provides clients with a blank slate for implementing their own design ideas. Recently awarded the 2016 Best Venue for Large Weddings in Ann Arbor, Frutig Farms is a beautiful outdoor venue six miles from downtown Ann Arbor. The site overlooks a gorgeous pond set against natural wetlands and rolling fields. Uniquely restored historic buildings sit amongst beautiful perennial gardens. The couple chose to have their ceremony in one of the two barns known as The Valley and Edwards’s father acted as the officiant. It must have been an honor and delight for him to lead the couple through their vows to the pronouncement of husband and wife. Barb Thayer was the coordinator and directed the day beautifully. We sat up in the loft and had an excellent view of the proceedings. The couple chose all classical music for their ceremony including the Purcell Trumpet Voluntary for Melissa’s processional.
The cocktail hour and reception was held at Misty Farm, the second barn of the Frutig Farm holdings. At Melissa and Edward’s request, we played songs by Coldplay, Pharrell, Journey, Game of Thrones, Katy Perry and more. Larry Lee and Back In the Day were setting up for the reception which was sure to be a fantastic evening. We extend our thanks to the band for their help with sound and their encouraging applause. We wish we could have stayed to hear their music! Congratulations to Edward and Melissa and we thank them for the honor of being a part of their wedding day and family’s celebration.
