A romantic spot on Lake Michigan

Wilderness State Park, located in northern Michigan, takes in a large area of forest and Lake Michigan shoreline. This rustic setting was the site that Shannon and Brent choose for their beach wedding on June 16th. The weather was just ideal for a beach wedding.

The guests followed a sandy path through the trees, down to the beach where the couple had set up their ceremony site. With a quartet playing the bride and her father walked down an aisle lined with seashells to meet her groom.

After the ceremony, guests traveled to the Historic Bay View Hotel which was built in 1886. It is located in the Historic Landmark District of Petosky.

This location provided us with beautiful views of Little Traverse Bay and was a perfect setting for photos of family and our wedding party.

After dinner we escorted the bride and groom from the banquet room to take shots as the sun started to set. This gave the bride and groom a much needed break, and us an opportunity for some great photos.

The rest of the evening was devoted to just having lots of fun. One of the highlights of the night was the father-daughter dance where dad showed he could still cut a rug!!

Our best to Shannon and Brent.
