Briahna and Drew have been visiting Northern Michigan since they were young. They planned a simple beach ceremony in Suttons Bay overlooking gorgeous Grand Traverse Bay including their beautiful daughter Alice, closest family members, and don’t forget their energetic golden retriever Tucker.

Their family rented a cottage in Suttons Bay just a couple doors down from my place on South Lee Point Rd just off M22. This was my first wedding ceremony that I could walk to. I packed up my gear and walked the half a block over. Friends and family gathered for Briahna and Drew’s beach ceremony just across from their AirBnB.

Briahna and Drew were very excited about exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes after their beach ceremony. At sunset, we explored one of my favorite spots in the dunes for some gorgeous views. Then the two headed out to a nice dinner with their family. What a perfect day!

Congratulations Briahna and Drew and family! It was my pleasure to be a part of your special day. 🙂
