Harbor Springs Wedding Photography
It is hard to pick a highlight from this Birchwood Farms Country Club Wedding. The hair, dress, flowers, ceremony, reception, desserts, and basically everything was so perfect. Birchwood Farms Country Club Harbor Springs Wedding Photography by Photographer Paul Retherford.
The day begins early with Vogue Salon and Spa from Petoskey, Michigan working their magic on the hair and makeup.
When my time begins, the ladies have their makeup done and are ready to put on their beautiful dresses.
The preparation house for the ladies is on Pickerel Lake. Love the rustic feel of it and that cool fireplace.
Flowers are designed by Tigerlilly’s in Alanson, Michigan. I have worked with them a number of times in the past and they do a wonderful, creative job.
Transportation provided by Mackinaw Shuttle from Pellston.
Day of Wedding coordinating is by Kris and her team at MerryMakers. MerryMakers is always a wonderful planner to work with on your day.
Wedding Ceremony Emmanuel Episcopal Church Petoskey
Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Petoskey is very nice. It has a lot of room to accommodate everyone. The ladies prepare upstairs while the men have a lounge area on the main floor.
There is a small chapel area and a large main sanctuary room.
The Wedding ceremony lasts about one hour with a few family images following before heading to Harbor Springs.
On the way to Harbor Springs, we make a stop at Petoskey State Park for a few beach images with Lake Michigan in the background.

Yacht boat Photographer
Are you selling a yacht, boat, or anything on the water? Did you know that I photograph interior, exterior, and aerial photography of yachts? If you want, I can even help you sell it. Looking for professional images for your yacht sales look no further. Northern Michigan yacht boat photography broker sales drone photo by Paul Retherford.
So many million dollar boats are listed online with TERRIBLE phone images. I see this all the time and it makes me sad for the seller. The seller puts his/her trust in a broker who gets unacceptable images.
There is a different way. I will set up a time to go on the water and photograph your boat or yacht from all angles and even underway, sailing, trolling, skiing, or whatever your boat is used for.
You can show your buyers exactly what they will feel when they purchase your yacht, boat, water vessel.
If you would like the absolute best images of your yacht, boat, sailboat, water vessel, or any watersports toy call me at 231-445-1793.
