Week-of Reminders

Hello all!

Now that our wedding day is less than a week away, it's time to start getting ready! Here's some additional information that we hope you'll find useful as the wedding approaches. If you have any other questions, feel free to call or email. We can't wait to see you and celebrate you on August 3rd!

The Big Day:
The ceremony is outside in the "Wedding Pasture" at 1:30pm.  The dinner reception is under a large tent and begins at 4pm followed by dessert, music, and dancing. While the wedding party takes photos in between the ceremony and dinner, guests are invited to tour the farm, participate in the "pebble toss" wedding tradition down by Arms Creek, and partake in appetizers and beverages.

What to Wear (and What Not to Wear):
"Business casual" is a good guideline for planning what you'll wear, but also consider your own comfort for the day. Given that the event will be on grass (and the ground is uneven in some places) we strongly recommend that you don't wear high heels.

Overnight Accommodations:
If you're in from out of town, don't want to have to worry about driving after the party, or just want the excuse to sleep under the stars, you can camp out at Brines Farm. Bring your own tent and sleeping bag and stake out a spot on the back forty. Let us know by Wednesday (July 31st) if you'll be staying over night.

Friday/Sunday Wedding Activities - Please celebrate with us a little more:
Friday Night - 7pm to 9pm
Bill's Beer Garden
218 S. Ashley Street, Ann Arbor

Join us for a drink at Bill's Beer Garden on Friday night! This is an outdoor venue that doesn't serve food, but you can bring it in from one of the downtown restaurants or stroll through Downtown Home and Garden and pick up a snack from Mark's Carts (http://markscartsannarbor.com/).

Sunday Brunch - 10am to 1pm
Back at Brines Farm
6384 Walsh Road, Whitmore Lake

All are welcome back to the farm for a light breakfast on Sunday morning. Please send us a quick email to let us know that you'll be there, just so we can plan for food.

Weather Conditions:
We will be getting married outdoors on the farm on August 3rd, rain or shine! We do have a large tent just in case. If it rains, you may want to consider bringing an umbrella, and maybe galoshes.
