Hidden Vineyard Wedding Berrien Springs Michigan
Rural Michigan has so many wonderful wedding barns. Sierra & Ryan chose Hidden Vineyard for their beautiful summer wedding. The original barn foundation was built in 1870, making it one of the oldest standing barns still in use in Michigan. Hidden Vineyard is not only a wedding venue, but a working farm producing grapes, soybeans, honey and maple syrup.
Most wedding barns have lovely open space around them and a big room for the ceremony. Hidden Vineyard also has a great bridal room with ample space to get ready. The rustic doors and huge mirrors were wonderful for the hair and makeup photos.
The ceremony area at Hidden Vineyard is under a huge tree and it has lovely shade. Despite the hot day the breeze kept the guests comfortable during the short intimate ceremony.
Like most wedding photographers, I love love love sunset photos. Most weddings just do not allow for sunset photos. It is often during dinner or speeches, or the venue just does not have a great area where a good sunset is a possibility. Hidden Vineyard not only has a great view for sunsets, but there are vineyards!
We managed to take full advantage of a well planned timeline and a stunning view to go out into the vineyard for 10 minutes just before sunset and get some awesome photos. The groomsmen were also kind enough to carry the flower arch from the ceremony site to the area by the barn for some sunset photos.
Here are some favorite photos from the day.
