Waterfront Fall Wedding Ceremony

Laura and Chris's 215 guests gathered on a dock at the marina of Lake Michigan. The reception location, Bay Harbor Yacht Club in Petoskey, Michigan, was in the same area, allowing guests to enjoy cocktail hour overlooking the water before moving into the banquet hall. Laura enjoyed the venue's simplicity and elegance, and used its waterfront location as inspiration for the wedding's nautical theme.
