The Inn at Bay Harbor Wedding | Kate + Michael

by | Jul 13, 2016

“It was so much emotional overload that I still, to this day, cannot adequately describe my feelings. It was incredible.”

Looking out over Lake Michigan at the Inn at Bay Harbor was just dreamy. A perfect venue for Kate & Michael’s special day. The soft sky, the gentle breeze, the pastel pink dresses… everything was warm and inviting for the lovely couple. It was easy to see from their first moments together, the deep passion and love they shared. This couple came alive around each other.. With an intimate, magical lakeside first look, the two read hand-written vows which brought tears from both, bride and groom. “Reading my vows to her was a moment I’ll never forget, I’ll never forget the setting, the spot or the words we exchanged.”

As clouds threatened to rain, time effortlessly passed and the couple’s spirits could not be dampened. Soon the beautiful ceremony began with flute, chello, and keyboard. Both were eager to get married. Walking down the aisle with her brother, Kate  just squeezed his arm tighter and tighter and he said to me, ‘This is just wonderful.'” Meanwhile Michael was so eager, he excitedly met his bride a little early. “I was so overcome with emotion that I went to grab her before our officiant asked her brother to giver her away.” With the sharing of a poem, a friend’s reading, the “key to love,” and a kiss, the two became happily united into marriage.

Once united, the couple began the rest of the celebration with a champagne toast, leading to brilliant food and cupcakes, lots of laughter, memorable speeches, and a live photo booth. Furthermore, the couple danced under a gazebo and vintage bulb lights overlooking Lake Michigan while the clouds lightly kissed the two with falling water droplets. During “our first dance, I (Michael) really felt like we were the only ones there.” It was all perfect. The couple completely embodied a genuine, classy, caring persona, and it was very evident from the way all their loved ones respected and interacted with them. As the night went on, the clouds begin to let loose on with rain, which made for a perfect night of dancing in the rain. Congratulations Kate and Michael! May God bless your marriage!
