Bowers Harbor Vineyard Wedding | Brittani + Matthew

by | Dec 22, 2017

“I remember standing on the altar looking out as I was holding Brittani’s hand. Seeing everybody, I just had this feeling of peace.”

Brittani and Matt held their reception at the gorgeous Bowers Harbor Vineyard that looks over the Grand Traverse West Bay. Brittani was born and raised in TC, and Matt loves to be up north, so they knew that Traverse City would be the perfect place. “We wanted our wedding to be romantic and intimate, and to create a setting that was a little more unique where our guests could really interact with each other. We both love being outdoors, and Bowers is our favorite winery.” They picked the perfect spot.

“I don’t think I have ever felt so anxious and excited in my life!” Brittani got ready with her friends and family inside the house that she grew up in. “I don’t like being the center of attention, so that definitely created some nervousness as I thought about walking down the aisle, however, I was so grateful to have my Mom and closest friends in the same room with me while getting ready. Many of my friends live all over the country now, so it meant a lot to have them all there together. It was such a special and precious time that I will never forget.” Meanwhile, Matt was staying at the Park Place Hotel in downtown Traverse City getting ready. He remembers back to the morning of and he was incredibly excited for the gorgeous day ahead and being able to see his bride-to-be. “I was emotional just thinking about saying the vows and seeing Brittani in her dress. I knew I was going to cry.”

Just as both of them had anticipated, seeing each other made time stand still. The moment they got their first look was a moment neither of them will forget. “I had waited all morning to see Matthew, and I loved having that one-on-one moment with him.” Again, they both had this beautiful moment during their ceremony, “it was emotional because it all hit me at once that our day was finally here, and that we would walk out as a married couple.”

As their day went on it was filled with love, happiness, and laughter.

Congratulations you two! May God Bless your marriage.
