As a passionate Northern Michigan wedding photographer, I’ve had the honor of capturing countless beautiful weddings in the enchanting town of Northport, nestled at the tip of Leelanau Peninsula, just 30 miles north of Traverse City. There’s something truly magical about Northport’s allure, and I’m excited to share with you what makes this charming destination a perfect choice for your wedding.

Away from the Bustle, Embracing Tranquility

Northport is a haven of serenity, offering respite from the bustling city life. Nestled at the northern edge of the peninsula, this town isn’t a thoroughfare; it’s a destination chosen with intention. When you find yourself in Northport, it’s because you’ve chosen to be there, to soak in its tranquil beauty and captivating ambiance.

A Visual Symphony

One of Northport’s most alluring traits is its picturesque nature. Marina Park gazes out over the serene waters of Grand Traverse Bay, presenting a perfect backdrop for your special day. Northport’s downtown exudes an old-world charm, reminiscent of scenes from a movie. And beyond that, hidden gems like lesser-known dunes, a picturesque lighthouse, scenic overlooks, and lush forests wait to be explored.
