The Inn at Bay Harbor Wedding Photography Northern Michigan Renae + Jason
Lake Michigan Wedding Bay Harbor Photography
Congratulations to Renae and Jason! Your Bay Harbor Wedding at The Inn at Bay Harbor was a gorgeous day and Wedding.
This destination Lake Michigan beach venue location in Northern Michigan is a perfect location for people who want the unobstructed views of Lake Michigan during their Wedding Ceremony with million dollar sunset views. You even overlook Lake Michigan while dancing on the dance floor at your Wedding Reception.
Renae and Jason come from Southern Michigan where Jason runs a large farm operation. They wanted a destination Wedding without traveling outside of our beautiful state of Michigan.
Renae and Jason has a beautiful suite at The Inn at Bay Harbor with a balcony overlooking Lake Michigan.
Renae got her hair designed on site at The Spa at The Inn at Bay Harbor with her bridesmaids and mother.
We met after the salon in their first floor room where the Bridesmaids were preparing. The guys got the fourth floor room so that they would not see Renae.
The Wedding theme was Elegant with Bling. They had a color scheme of coral, peach, and tan.
Renae decided that her father and the groom were the only ones to wear the suit. Since the guys didn’t listen to directions we did their images in the suits before the Wedding, and then came back and photographed them again without the suit. I agree with Renae in having the guys without suits.
The flowers by Sky’s the Limit were simply amazing. Jackie at Sky’s the Limit went above and beyond designing flowers with bling. I have had many of my Brides use Jackie for their flowers with bling. Maybe I should rename Jackie to the bling queen.:-)
DJ Ryan Rousseau played the music for the Wedding Ceremony on Lake Michigan and also the Wedding Reception. He always does a great job keeping the dance floor packed. One thing that he mentioned to me was the Renae loves Kid Rock and she wanted to play some of his music. Ryan loves Kid Rock too. He had to wait until later in the evening to drop some Kid Rock.
Renae went above and beyond with her cakes. Simply Sweet by Jessica took an idea and made two cakes that were incredible! The Wedding cake was a beautiful tiered white cake with flowers provided by Sky’s the Limit. The groom’s cake was a hand-painted farm scene on the front and football number and goal posts on the back. The cake had three John Deere tractors from Jason’s childhood years. It was a beauty. You didn’t want to cut it. Let me tell you, probably, if not the best, in the top three cakes I have ever eaten. In my almost 600 Weddings I have eaten ALOT of cakes, and most of the top multiple pieces in multiple flavors. I love my job.:0)
I really enjoyed working with Renae and Jason. I always love to work with Clients that are kind and beautiful on the inside and out. Best of luck to my beautiful couple. You are now part of the Paul Retherford Photography family of Clients.:-)
The Vendors all did a perfect job and it was a pleasure being part of Renae and Jason’s Wedding day.
