Two Couples Celebrate their ‘Big Day’ Thanks to the Adventure Elopement Give Away
The winning couples of The Adventure Elopement Giveaway celebrated their ‘big day’ on June 19. ‘The Four’s Michelle Dunaway was able to catch up with both Miranda and David from Royal Oak, and Carrie and Jason from Trout Lake before they hit the alter and during their wedding.
June 8, 2020: The Adventure Elopement Giveaway was created back in May 2020 to give two lucky couples a chance to celebrate their big day, despite their wedding being postponed or canceled due to the pandemic. Elopements are much simpler than weddings and tend to be geared more towards the bride and groom, rather than tailored for families and friends of the couple. This giveaway was a collaboration between various wedding venues, planners, photographers, restaurants, and much more – from across Northern Michigan.
The newlyweds-to-be were selected early June and will be having their celebrations on Friday, June 19. It will include an officiant, lodging, food and wine, flowers, decor and design, entertainment, transportation, photography, and videography coverage. Both couples were given a survey, and a ‘mood board’ – to help the planners cater to their ‘needs and wants’ to make their special day even more special.
Carrie and Jason (see above) were the first to receive the great news. Their original plans included a wedding in New Orleans with a gothic/romantic vibe to it. Meaghan Jameson from Fox and Fern Events is helping the couple keep their colorful theme while giving it a nature-like twist. They will be hitting various wedding hotspots throughout the tip of the mitten, like Nature, Kirkbride Hall, Island Thyme, and Willowbrook Mill.
Miranda and David (see above), from Royal Oak, had plans for an October wedding at the Royal Oak Famers market with their family and friends. That has been postponed for next year, and for now, they will be tying the knot in Northern Michigan. Chandra Wheeler from Orchestrated Grace is the planner for part of their day and is honoring their blush and gold theme with light and beautiful floral arrangements, and delicate decor. Miranda and David will be venturing out to, and around the Grand Traverse County Area, visiting Crystal Mountain, Rove Estate, Castle Farms, and Blue Bridge Events.
We will be following the couples throughout their ‘adventure elopement’ – so stay tuned!
