Wedding at the Homestead Resort

Get Married on the Beach in Traverse City for $495. For more information visit, Traverse City Beach Weddings

On a beautiful summer morning on the shores of Lake Michigan, at the Homestead Resort, our lovely bride Abby made her way across the bridge to greet her soon to be husband. The grin on Daniel's face when he first saw Abby spoke for it's self. We then had the opportunity to capture some rare moring photos on the beach with our good looking couple. Some couples like to have a first meeting before the ceremony for a variety of reasons and photographers love it because it usually allows us to spend more private time with the couple.

Abby and Daniel chose to have an elegant but more casual affair. Following their morning ceremony on the top of the mountain, with its spectacular views of Lake Michigan, the guests joined the couple for a fantastic brunch at Camp Firefly. After the reception brunch and toasts, our couple invited all their guests outside for some serious croquet competition.

What great day and best wishes!

Wedding at Bowers Harbor/Mission Table

We were again back at Bowers Harbor Mission Table for a beautiful summer wedding. The lovely lawn at Bowers Harbor was the setting for the nuptials of Karyn and Brian. Indeed, the Inn has long been one of our favorite sites for outdoor weddings as it is one of the rare wedding venues that has a beach area along with vineyards. What bride would not feel radiant in such a location. Karyn and Brian choose this location to be joined together in front of family and friends.

The ceremony was very lovely and touching as it was performed by a clergyman who was a close family friend. After family photos the couple greeted their guests on the large front patio deck. For the reception, the guests only needed to walk around to the back where the new Mission Table reception hall is located.

Once the reception began, toasts dinner and cake cutting was followed by an evening dancing and celebration with one of the area's premier bands "MacDaddy".

What a great time!!

Wedding at Castle Farms in Charlevoix

Kellie and James were a couple that wanted to keep things as simple and stress free as possible in planning their wedding. That was one of the reasons they chose to get married at Castle Farms in Charlevoix Michigan. A venue such as Castle Farms is just perfect for that type of celebration. Everything can be done at one location. Kellie and James choose the Knights Courtyard for their wedding site. The couple opted not to have anyone stand up with them. Instead they walked down the aisle together. They exchanged vows in the outside courtyard in the presence of the intimate group of family and friends that had gathered.

The courtyard gave us a great spot for photos of family and friends after the ceremony. From the courtyard we moved into the Knights Castle for a great evening of celebration. It was our pleasure to be part of Kellie and James’s special day.

Good luck in the future.
