To say this weekend was amazing is an understatement. Kate and I have been working with Leah & Ryan on their wedding for months. With the couple living in Chicago, us working from West Michigan, and the wedding UpNorth in Petoskey, it's been quite a journey. Leah's mother, Diane, was very involved and with all of us working together - this weekend was nothing short of fabulous.

Kate and I arrived in Petoskey Friday afternoon. After checking on the bride & her 'maids at The Spa at The Inn at Bay Harbor, we headed over to church and then the country club before meeting the entire wedding party for rehearsal. Kate and I enjoyed dinner at Thai Orchid right downtown - it was delicious, and it is always fun to enjoy a ladies night on the town.

Saturday morning we made our way over to the Lakeside Cottage to meet up with the ladies. We also popped into the club to check on set-up, and to also (finally!) meet Jon of Gerych's, the talented florist who created quite an event for Leah & Ryan.

The wedding ceremony was full of emotion, tradition and love. It was awesome watching this sweet, sweet couple get married in the ornate, Catholic church. After the ceremony, everyone made their way to Walloon Lake Country Club to enjoy cocktails on the patio. Guests made their way inside to enjoy dinner, four amazing toasts, and dancing the rest of the evening.

I look forward to showing you photos from Lotus Photographic and a bit of video from Captured Productions in the near future!
