Rachel and Jack’s intimate elopement unfolded in the serene pines near Traverse City, nestled on their family’s picturesque property. With a curated guest list of around 20, they transformed the space into a dreamy ceremony site adorned with string lights, vibrant carpets lining the aisle, and artisanal wooden benches made by the groom himself.
