Having watched and been part of many a Mackinac Island wedding, Island born and raised Lake created her unique and very own fairytale wedding, complete with her fairy tale prince. Grand Hotel was her choice for 200 plus guests as the beautiful tea gardens perfectly encompassed the bride and grooms large guest list of family and friends. Lake, named for the Great Lakes that she was married by that day, selected the Chippewa Hotel to get ready with close friends and family following her hair and make styling at Vintage Glam on Market.
John and his friends were light hearted and relaxed, despite some very warm temperatures! Lake and her bridesmaids made a Grand entrance, - both parents escorting Lake across the large green lawn. After the wedding, Grand Hotel Carriage arrived to take the couple on a delightful ride to the end of the boardwalk and down Main Street before arriving at the reception destination, the Mackinac Island Yacht Club. An enormous buffet of amazing food by Tim and sweets by Missie surely satisfied everyone’s appetite, and the 10 piece band provided great tunes for dancing for old and new friends.
As many a Mackinac Island wedding, the party continued through the evening making its way through the many night spots that provide fun and music for all.
Sailing smoothly through the day, this beautiful couple continued on for a sweet sail of a honeymoon.
As friends of the family, Jeff and I had a special joy as we watched this amazing wedding unfold and were very privileged as we are at all weddings, to be able to be a part of capturing the memories that will endure for a lifetime.
