Julie & Dani's August wedding at Sojourn Lakeside Resort in Gaylord, MI was filled with stunning natural beauty, meaningful personal touches, and a heavy dose of fun. Plus their sunset photos by The Compass Points Here are absolutely breathtaking!
From Sincerely, Ginger Event Design & Production: Julie & Dani’s wedding celebration kicked off Friday night with a welcome BBQ on the patio at the Sojourn Lakeside Resort in Gaylord, MI. True to their passion for fitness and healthy living, Julie & Dani provided group workouts, paddleboarding, and yoga on the Sojourn lawn Saturday morning and all guests were invited. The two honored their shared love for CrossFit through details such as their monogram, the bridal party’s custom Reeboks, and Dani’s kettle bell cufflinks.
The ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Cathedral before heading back to Sojourn for a patio cocktail hour. BJ’s catering provided a lovely buffet dinner followed by a dessert bar from Sugar Me Sweet Cake Shop and Apline Chocolat Haus. Dani’s Nicaraguan family brought custom maracas and silver fans that complimented the creamy white and natural green floral design by Stems & Sprigs.
At sunset the newlyweds snuck away with their photographers, Compass Points Here, to capture beautiful waterfront shots in the fading light. The weather was perfect and the guests danced the night away with music provided by DJ Larry Reichert. Julie & Dani made a spectacular exit by sparkler light at the end of the night, leaving their guests to enjoy pizza, s’mores, and draft beer around the waterside campfire.
Julie & Dani are truly inspiration people in their personal and professional lives. Their wedding was a sincere and fun celebration of their commitment and love and we are grateful to have been a part of it!
