Stafford’s Perry Hotel Wedding | Emily + Chris | By Anna


If you’ve never experienced Petoskey, Michigan in the summer, you’re missing out. The bay views, the quaint downtown, the sunsets. It truly is a little piece of heaven. So when Emily & Chris began planning their wedding day, they knew they had to share their little piece of paradise with their loved ones.

From morning preparations in the company of their closest friends to a first look in the gardens of the Perry Hotel, Emily & Chris’ big day could not have gotten a better start. After a few photos (and many good laughs- these two are FUN!), we soon found ourselves nestled under the Mitchell Street bridge for a wedding ceremony truly unlike anything I have ever seen. After saying their “I do’s” and sealing it with a kiss, we were soon back at the Perry for a night of celebrating! And what a night it was!

Emily & Chris, you two are so wonderful, and I know your future together will be something truly special and beautiful. Congrats on your marriage!
