Real Wedding: Brittany & Michael, Traverse City, MI

Brittany and Michael's wedding took place on July 24th.  While the day was slightly overcast and rainy, nothing could dampen the spirits of these two love birds and their families.  The historic grounds of Bowers Harbor Inn on Old Mission Peninsula played host to the couple and their wedding guests.  The rain allowed for an intimate ceremony inside The Peninsula Room.  The lively cocktail hour was held under the flower covered pergola and the reception moved the crowd indoors once again for heart felt speeches, a delicious meal and dancing of course!  Michael's Italian heritage inspired guests to partake in the traditional Tarantella dance.  The bride and groom were also hoisted above the crowd on their chairs for another lively group number.  The mother of the bride crafted a majority of the decor including the elaborate wedding cake.  This truly was a family filled affair!  Head on over to the Real Weddings page to see the photo gallery from Brittany and Michael's wedding.  Be sure to see below, for all the talented vendors that took part in their big day.
