BlueBridge Events Centre Wedding | Sam + Blake


“I felt like I was living in a dream. None of it felt real, and in some ways, still doesn’t. I was giddy, I couldn’t stop smiling; all the stress of the past months suddenly went away, and I loved every moment. I wanted the day to speed up and slow down all at the same time.”

2020 was a tough year for weddings, and Sam & Blake certainly know that all too well. “I still get choked up thinking about the roller coaster ride we’ve taken everyone on this year, and all the people in our lives who have stepped up to make our wedding something we’ll never forget. We truly are blessed to be surrounded by the most supportive, genuine family and friends. We couldn’t have hand picked better people. We are forever grateful.”

Sam & Blake’s big day took place at BlueBridge Event Centre. “We both loved the idea of Northern Michigan from day one; we spent an entire weekend looking at venues and BlueBridge was the one we BOTH kept coming back to. We loved the ability to utilize the indoor/outdoor space and roll up the sidewalls. After all our COVID hiccups, venue changes, dates, etc. it just seemed right that we ended up back at our first choice.”

From the ceremony to the dance floor, every part of Sam & Blake’s wedding was a memorable and incredibly special. “There was never a moment where our dance floor was empty, there was nothing but pure happiness and celebration amongst everyone. I think everyone was just as excited to cross this finish line with us as we were!”

Congratulations, Sam & Blake!
