Carolyn Belcher + Michael Welker
Photographer: Mina von Feilitzsch Photography
Rarely is a farm animal noted as inspiration for a proposal, but Michael’s wouldn’t have been complete without the inclusion of Carolyn’s favorite grazer. A set of ceramic sheep emblazoned with “Let’s Get Married” were the perfect thing to get Michael’s fun-loving bride down the aisle.
Carolyn’s fondness for all things vintage inspired her choice of venue — where her parents had their reception and her grandmother once worked for the Boyd family — and her uniquely imperfect decor. Long after dining on mismatched china and dancing to bluegrass renditions of classic rock hits, guests strutted home while wearing temporary tattoos of the couple’s faces.
