Bonobo Winery Style Photography Traverse City

Bonobo Winery on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City is an impressive location for your party or event.  Working with Jones Bridal TC is a pleasure.  In addition, 307 Events props are perfect. The gorgeous cake is from Top Tier Cakery.  Last, but not least, The florals are designed by Lillies of the Alley for a Bonobo Winery Style Photography Traverse City shoot.

Emily from Jones Bridal TC has me down to photograph the styled shoot at Bonobo Winery on the Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City.  She is responsible for the entire shoot.

I could not ask for a better travel day.  Blue skies and beautiful snow on the ground.

As I arrive, Emily is finishing up her touches.

Bonobo is a gorgeous winery on Old Mission Peninsula.  It has been open two years now.  Bonobo is founded by Traverse City brothers Todd and Carter Oosterhouse.

The view overlooking the vineyards is spectacular.

I spend around an hour photographing the setup.  Here are a few images from the Bonobo Winery Styled Photography Traverse City.

Thank you to Emily from Jones Bridal TC.  It was a pleasure working with you.  Hope to see you in the near future.

Queens Courtyard West Garden Room

It is a cool day in Northern Michigan at Castle Farms.  This Fall Wedding Northern Michigan Castle Farms will warm things up quickly.

Jessica and Martin make a cute pairing.  Both of them are so easy going and fun.  They are both a bit nervous but they settled down quickly after seeing each other for a first look.

Jessica and Martin asked to have a reveal prior to the wedding ceremony in the Queen’s Tavern at Castle Farms.  They wanted to have all of their images done before saying I do.

With both small families, we are able to finish all of the family, wedding party, and bride groom images with time to spare.

Jonathan Mays is early to the event and helped calm their nerves a bit prior to walking down the aisle.  I believe that Martin would have loved to be outdoors in the 40 degree weather saying his vows.:-)

Jessica made it known that she was pregnant with twins.  Everyone knew and was very congratulatory to them.  Martin wanted to always do the baby on the belly pose and Jessica would pull his hand away.:-)

The Wedding vendors that made this day run smoothly include:

  1. Castle Farms venue in Queen’s Tavern and West Garden Room with coordinator Sarah
  2. Hair and Makeup by Ashley of Salon Blu
  3. Transportation by Midnight Madness
  4. Flowers by Randi’s Green Thumb Service
  5. Charlevoix Wedding Pastor
  6. Chair linens by Linen Collections
  7. Catering by A Matter of Taste
  8. Cake by Tina Barnard
  9. Entertainment by Rusch Entertainment with Dean
  10. Photographer Paul Retherford Photography
