The bride described her wedding as the quintessential simple Northern Michigan outdoor garden wedding. Many of the out of town guests were exploring Northern Michigan for the first time and rented homes for the week. They wanted the wedding to be a nice finale for the guests and Stafford’s Perry Hotel in downtown Petoskey was perfect! It’s a favorite destination for weddings in the Northern Michigan area especially for couples that are hoping to have a wedding with a garden party atmosphere. The Rose Garden at the Perry is ideal and overlooks Little Traverse Bay. The wedding coordinating team at the Perry is wonderful too and does a phenomenal job helping to plan every last detail.
