Mackinac Island Mission Point Resort Wedding lawn
May is not typically the warmest time on Mackinac Island. Don’t tell Adriana and Tadd. Furthermore, check out their Mission Point Resort outdoor lawn Wedding Summit Room Photography.
It is a blue sky day on Mackinac Island and the Mission Point Resort wedding on the lawn is abuzz with loungers and tourists biking the trail.
As a result so many people are out that I have to time a lot of my photography to avoid bikes and people in the backgrounds.
It feels a bit like an August day on Mackinac Island.
In my opinion when it reaches 75 degrees on Mackinac Island in May, you are blessed.
Adriana begins her day in the gorgeous, newly renovated Lakeside Spa and Salon at Mission Point Resort.
Both Tadd and Adriana get ready in the Mission Point lodge in separate rooms.
Also, they choose not to see each other prior to their Mission Point Resort lawn Wedding.
One Enchanted Evening does a wonderful job designing the arch at the Wedding ceremony, as well as, the bouquets and boutinerres.
Mission Point Resort sets up two speakers and a stereo and microphone system for the Mission Point Resort wedding.
Tadd’s sister plays the violin for the processional.
Tadd and Adriana take communion and they watered a bush as their show of unity.
Furthermore, Adriana’s brother is the officiant.
We do all of the images on Mission Point Resort for their day. Mission Point Resort is 5 acres so there is a lot of room.
The Wedding reception is in the Summit Room overlooking the Straits of Mackinac.
Northern Michigan Consultants DJ with Michael Williford does a wonderful job keeping the dance floor moving.
Whitefish, chicken, steak, and a pasta bar are the delicious selections for the evening. The chefs at Mission Point Resort do an amazing job!
In addition, the cake is prepared by Mission Point Resort.
Adriana and Tadd travel to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon.
Cheers to the new Mackinac Island Bride and Groom!

Charlevoix Michigan Wedding
Northern Michigan wedding photographer Paul Retherford captures Castle Farms fusion military Wedding video.
The fusion video includes images, audio, and video files. This video is kind of a mini Wedding video for my Clients.
This fusion video is not meant to take the place of a complete day video by a professional videographer.
Maybe you don’t want a wedding video. This fusion video might be right up your alley.
If you are interested in having a fusion wedding video, feel free to contact me to chat about it further.
Paul Retherford Photography prepares the video in usually less than one week.
Capture a combination of land based and aerial video.
Finally, this fusion video is online for all of your family and guests to see, if you wish.
This is one example.

There is something about military weddings that is just different. The bond that you see between the people who have sacrificed is inexplainable. Dream Castle Wedding Northern Michigan Charlevoix with Paul Retherford Photography.
Danielle shows up to the Wedding with her “groom gift” in hand, I knew it is going to be a special day.
She is really proud of herself in finding a bullet shot glass set for the exact aircraft that her future husband works on in the Air Force. Even Chuck, her fiance, is impressed!
Danielle’s style is very clean and pretty. Everything is very nice but not overdone.
They keep the wedding party small so that they could enjoy the day and not have to worry about others, and take a ton of images.
Danielle and Chuck decided against a first look.
It is the aisle that almost brought Chuck to tears. If he wasn’t in uniform I think he is crying. Just saying.
So the walk down the aisle is a long one at the Knights Courtyard at Castle Farms. The groom is raised so you can see the bride the entire way. It is really special.
Danielle catches her shoe on her dress walking down the aisle and is stuck holding her father. Her face is priceless. Everyone is laughing including Danielle and Chuck.
Jonathan Mays, as always, does beautiful work with the ceremony. He bings some laughs a couple times during the ceremony.
It is a day long party that started fast and ends fast.
So I mentioned that Chuck was in the Air Force and he has probably 20 men and women from his group that traveled from Alaska, Texas, California, and more. They knew how to party.
The nine bottles of Tito’s went away in three hours. 🙂 They get more though. Party on.
Outside of the West Garden Room where the reception is held is a lawn toy area. This is a hit with the adults and kids alike.
The food, the cake, the flowers, the dancing; it is all amazing.
We are even blessed with a gorgeous sunset perfectly placed to capture at Castle Farms.
The wonderful wedding vendors include:
Justin Alexander wedding dress
Badgley Mischka shoes
