Red Riding Hood Stables Wedding with Holly Hotel – Catherine and Jim

Who knew a “Red Riding Hood Stables” wedding (catered by the Holly Hotel at their a thoroughbred farm) in Holly, Michigan could be such a luxurious, glamorous and gorgeous location for a “barn” and “rustic” wedding?! This was an unexpected treat and clearly even Catherine had no idea her vision would become such an amazing feast for the eyes! This truly did take a village to transform the working farm into a high end “rustic” wedding. Everyone was taking photos of the place. Catherine is a horse owner and was right at home with her surroundings. Jim is a man in love who wiped his eyes at the sight of his bride and again during their vows. For a complete list of the people who brought Catherine’s Horse Barn / Stables Chic wedding to life, please check below!

I’m assuming by now, you know I’m a photojournalist. I love capturing moments and taking advantage of all the little moments that present themselves and creating unique wedding photos on the fly. So you may be surprised to see so very many details photos in this wedding photography blog. Not only was this my first time to the Red Riding Hood Stables in Holly, Michigan, but there were SO MANY details. I’ve photographed over 1,300 weddings and I’ve NEVER seen a wedding this lush with amazing details.

And here are the MVP’s of this amazingly romantic Michigan barn and stables wedding.

    Oh my goodness.  Absolutely stunning. Even after forty years of weddings at the Holly Hotel and at our farm, I have never (and I mean never) seen a more splendid array of photos that TRULY captured the essence of a wedding celebration. 
    Marci, I can’t stop looking at them. What a magnificent job.
