An Elegant Lakefront Wedding at Stafford's Perry Hotel in Petoskey, Michigan

Kristine Nannini (29 and owner of Nannini Teaching Resources) and Brett O'Shell (30 and an attorney) celebrated their special day in a destination wedding set against the blue waters of Little Traverse Bay in Petoskey's Bay Front Park. "We love escaping to up north in the summer to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax," Kristine explains. "Petoskey was the perfect location to share our love of northern Michigan with our friends and family." With the help of wedding planner Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events, the couple brought their idea of an elegant, black and white wedding to life. Elements like oversized, black acrylic chandeliers, sequin linens and touches of gold gave the wedding a chic and streamlined look and feel.
