Real Wedding: Dreamy Rustic Wedding at Indian Springs Metropark

bride and groom kissing at Indian Springs MetroPark by Wren Photography

Runaway bride… and groom! Okay, not quite, but we do love the surprising and quirky way these two trail runners included their favorite shared hobby into their wedding day. If you’re imagining running-themed decor, then think again, because Megan and Eric took it a step further and actually topped off their big day with a private evening run. Yep, that’s right — they slipped out of their dressy wedding shoes (wedding dress and suit still on), donned colorful sneakers and took to the winding trails surrounding their park venue for the most memorable run of their lives. Starting off as a seemingly wild idea, the fun photos that Wren Photography captured of this grand finale prove that their decision to include this moment in their day was a stroke of pure genius. We’ve definitely never seen photos that show off the couple’s personalities in a more unique way. But wait, we’ve started with the end of the day, let’s go back to the beginning and describe all the amazing moments and rustic details that led up to this magical conclusion. Laid-back in style, the couple chose Indian Springs Metropark as the backdrop for their nature-inspired celebration. The serene environment, especially in the venue’s underground aquarium, created a gorgeous setting for the outdoor first look and the dreamy portraits. Under one of the park’s beautiful trees, they exchanged vows to the sounds of nature in lieu of music and literally “tied the knot” with a sweet unity ceremony. A rustic reception with DIY chalkboard signs, hand-made succulents centerpieces, wooden plates and other outdoorsy accents completed the motif. Okay, we’re sure you’re very excited now to jump right into this Michigan soiree, so without further delay, Megan and Eric’s big day…
