The Inn at Bay Harbor Wedding | Rena + Ben | By Luke + Anna

by | Aug 19, 2016

“Walking down the aisle with all our family watching… and the view of the bay behind everyone with the waves crashing on the shore…” That picture will forever stick out to Rena when she thinks back to her wedding day. The perfect day.

When Rena & Ben’s big day finally arrived, Northern Michigan put its best foot forward. The weather, the water. Everything came together perfectly for a wedding celebration that will certainly be remembered for years to come.

As the day began to unfold, Rena & Ben found themselves in neighboring cottages- making preparations in the company of their family and friends. Hair, makeup, dresses and suits. Soon everything was in place and everyone was anxious and excited for Rena & Ben to become husband and wife. And then the moment came. Just as is imprinted in Rena’s mind, the waves crashed on the shore as she and Ben exchanged vows and rings in the presence of their wedding guests. The scenery, the emotion and love… It was truly a breathtaking wedding ceremony.

And that was just the beginning of the celebration! From ceremony to cocktail hour and reception, the party was only getting underway. Wonderful speeches, incredible food, surprise dances, and a special (and dare we say HILARIOUS and somewhat inappropriate) song by Ben’s grandpa… The evening was full of incredible once-in-a-lifetime moments and memories.

Rena & Ben, your wedding was one for the books. It was beautiful and perfect, and we count it a privilege to have played a part in it. Congratulations!
