A Rustic Outdoor Fall Wedding

Samantha (Sam) Mack + Michael (Mike) Baskin | Nov 4, 2017

Samantha (Sam) and Michael (Mike) met on a pool league where they got to know each other and became friends; however, it eventually became clear that there was more to it than just friendship. The two started dating and in 2016, Mike proposed to Sam in Las Vegas in front of their pool league with a photographer to capture the whole thing! 

When Sam and Mike started planning their fall wedding, they knew two things: it needed to be rustic and it needed to be outside. They found a beautiful venue just outside of Charlotte which hadn't even hosted its first wedding yet but it ended up being a beautiful decision! Sam and Mike knew they wanted their wedding to be simple and fun and their vintage, rustic theme was perfect for their vision. The entire setup was fabulous, from the pews at the outdoor ceremony site to the string lights in the barn. Although the day started off a bit rainy, the rain left about 30 minutes before their ceremony and made for some fantastic photos by Back Seat Photography. A special part of Sam and Mike’s day was the way they included recently-lost loved ones into their ceremony, including a photo of Sam’s dad built into her custom-made broach bouquet. It was incredibly representative of what is truly important to the couple and that is the love of family and friends. For their reception, Sam and Mike opted to forego traditional catering and chose to have a pizza food truck instead (naturally, everyone was so excited!). It was a hit and there was even fresh made gelato for dessert to go along with the delicious wedding cake. The day was so fun and everyone had the best time dancing the night away and celebrating Sam and Mike’s love!

Congratulations, Sam and Mike!
