Clare and Bryce were married at Bare Knuckle Farm in Northport, Mich. on May 25. They first met on OkCupid.com, an online dating website, almost two years ago.  ”It was one of those things where we just clicked and everything fell into place with zero fuss,” Clare said. The bride wore an a-line wedding gown with lace capped sleeves, accessorized with a floral wreath in her loosely curled hair, while the groom wore a dark gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a boutonniere wrapped in leather. ”We got so lucky with gorgeous weather leading up to the wedding and the day itself,” she said. “The ceremony was outdoors, on hay bayles, overlooking the farm. We each wrote our own vows, and we managed to make everyone cry, which was totally our goal!” Drinks were served in wheelbarrows during cocktail hour as animals roamed the nearby fields. ”After the ceremony, we took 10 minutes back in the orchards on our own, to take in the moment, take in each other, and realize we were married!” Clare said. The reception was held underneath a pole tent. ”If the weather had been cold, considered it was one of the worst winters on record, we wanted to make sure it felt warm – not just the temperatures but the visual feel too,” she said. Tables were decorated with “mango” runners made by Bryce’s mom, mason jar centerpieces, and heart-punched, handwritten thank-you notes attached to favor bags at each place setting. Paper lanterns hung from the ceiling too! ”The flowers came from a local farm where they gave us what was in season – mostly colorful flowering branches, which we rounded out with just a few other flowers from a flower shop,” Clare said. The newlyweds’ first dance was a surprise. “”We like to have a dance party with out family and friends – we dance party all the time,” she said. “So, we got everyone on the dance floor as soon as possible. The first song played was Jackson 5′s ‘I Want You Back.’” See the full board here.
