Garden-Inspired Intimate Wedding at Venue3Two in Grand Rapids, Michigan

April 28, 2022

The inspiration for this shoot planned and designed by the Jeannene Lillie Events team and captured beautifully by The Fourniers was to showcase a wedding design that could inspire couples interested in having intimate at-home weddings filled with intentional and personalized details and lush florals. 

When searching for a venue that embodied both the inspiration for an at-home intimate wedding session with a romantic twist, the timeless mansion at Venue3Two and its beautiful 1920s architecture and detailing created the perfect location for our at-home intimate wedding. It was important for the wedding ceremony to be grandiose and beautiful to showcase that intimate at-home weddings deserve to have those big and bold details as well. Hosting an at-home wedding provides an opportunity to decorate and utilize your home in new and unexpected ways.    

When designing the shoot, the Jeannene Lillie Events team focused on an elevated and elegant color palette filled with pinks, ivories, dusty rose, grey, french blue, and touches of gold accents throughout the whole design. As an intimate wedding of 12 people, the intentional details and intimate setting can be seen in the family-style dining complete with charcuterie boards and personalized notes to each guest from the bride and groom attached to their escort card bud vase. 

After a year where weddings have been such a hurdle to navigate, having the opportunity to celebrate love and marriage is incredibly special and the ways that couples are dreaming of doing so have evolved and changed for many to include smaller celebrations filled to the brim with intentional and lush details that truly create a one of a kind experience!
