Bay View Wedding | Megan + Jim


Traverse City is a special place for Megan + Jim. So when they stumbled upon Bay View, they knew they had to get married there. “We wanted someplace that really encompassed the beauty of the area so that our guests could understand why we love it so much! We initially weren’t sure what to expect at Bay View and were a little unsure going into it if we wanted to have an all outdoor wedding. However, as soon as we drove up the hill to the reception location we were blown away by how breathtaking it was! Additionally, Rose was absolutely amazing, so we were sold! It was such an awesome location, and they really allowed us to be as creative and add our own personal touches.”

The morning of the wedding, Megan + Jim were a mix of nerves and excitement. “I was nervous at first that things would flow smoothly, and that everything would go perfectly throughout the day. Especially since it was raining pretty hard that morning. However, I was excited that the big day was finally here and couldn’t wait to get ready and finally go and see Jim!”

And then the moment came for Megan + Jim to be reunited. “Doing the first look with my dad and then Jim was really special! I felt like once I got those big moments over with my nerves for the day were totally gone! It really was so special to have those moments with each of them before everyone else!”

From first look to ceremony to dancing the night away, Megan + Jim’s wedding was everything a Traverse City wedding should be. Beautiful, relaxed, fun, and 100% them. Megan + Jim, it was an honor to be a part of your big day. Congratulations!
