Beauty was the word of the day for this fabulous, nautical-inspired wedding, all captured by Paul Retherford Wedding Photography! Marianne & Bob share a love for Lake Michigan that might even come within reach of their love for one another. The Traverse City couple own a boat that they frequently launch in Lake Michigan for fun-filled fishing trips! When looking for a wedding venue, it’s only natural that they would look to the lake that brings them so much joy. The Bay Harbor Yacht Club – with its breathtaking views of the lake, gorgeous houses, and yachts – fit the bill. Early August is an especially lovely time at the club, due to the many plants in bloom. With no need to decorate the natural beauty of the club, Marianne & Bob exchanged vows outdoors, overlooking the lake, with only a handful of flower arrangements serving as decor. The photos of the happy couple’s big day, from Paul Retherford Wedding Photography, are simply stunning!
