I remember just a couple months before Allyson and Alan’s early October 2021 wedding we were reviewing secondary ceremony plans in the event that it snowed. Yes, snow. Northern Michigan is no stranger to unpredictable weather and an early winter is especially common on the water so we all felt it was best to ensure we had a plan that most importantly kept guests warm and comfortable, but perhaps equally as important, delighted our bride and made for a picture perfect ceremony celebration outside instead of in.
As you see from the photos below, thankfully the snow (and rain!) stayed away from Bay Harbor’s sprawling lawn and the late autumn sun cast a romantic glow on the ceremony space that united our couple. While I know photos sometimes allow things to appear lovelier than they were, I can say with full confidence that everything came together just as beautifully as it looks in Abby Fox Photography’s stunning photographs. From the textural flower elements featuring a variety of Michigan grown treasures to the details nautically kissed in the most subtle ways, I kept telling my team throughout the day how special everything was coming together. And well, add in a couple like Allyson and Alan and it’s a recipe for magic.
Allyson and Alan, it was a delight to work alongside you to comprehensively design your celebration. Your wedding was the perfect way to wrap up a busy 2021 wedding season and we hope the best is truly yet to come in your adventures as husband and wife. Thank you for your trust in me and our team, and for allowing us to come into your lives during this intimate time. Congratulations!
