Bay Harbor Yacht Club Wedding | Courtney + Will


Courtney + Will chose the beautiful location of the Bay Harbor Yacht Club in Petoskey, Michigan. After their engagement they scouted out many different venues before deciding. “All were beautiful but the Bay Harbor Yacht Club just stood out. It had the views and the elegant vibe we desired. In addition, Will loves boats and the water so it was only fitting we got married there!”.

Their big day began with a beautiful morning that carried into a beautiful evening and the sun shining bright. Will and Courtney were relaxed and very excited for their day to begin! “Will and his groomsman hit the green for a round of golf and the girls and I sipped on champagne while getting pampered. Above all I think we were most excited to see each other and get the party started with our family and friends!” As Courtney and Will look back on their wedding day, they remember it being very emotional and beautiful. “There are many moments that stick out on the wedding day for me. One of the biggest moments had to be when I was walking down the aisle with my Dad before I could see Will and our guests. The slow but exciting walk down the yacht club stairs allowed me a second to really take the day in with my Dad by my side. The second biggest moment was our first dance. Will and I had taken lesson prior to the wedding and I was really nervous! However, as soon as we stepped on the dance floor and the music started my nerves just floated away.”

Along with Courtney, Will remembers the ceremony being a moment during the day that time was standing still. “One moment that sticks out to me the most was Courtney walking down the aisle to meet me. She was breathtakingly beautiful and she was going to be my wife. It was surreal. In addition, signing the marriage license made everything real and that memory really stands out against everything during the fast paced and exciting day”.

At the end of the day, no three words could describe their gorgeous wedding more than “Beautiful, fun and perfect!”
Congratulations! May God bless your marriage!
