This is so much more than a beautiful lakeside wedding or an affair radiating happy, happy  color. It’s a combination of all that plus a certain easy going, laughter-filled loveliness that can’t be crafted. It’s woven into the very fiber of this wedding and when matched with the creative stylings of A Day in May, Event Planning & Design, the brightest blooms by  Field of Flowers Farm and images by  Harwell Photography, the true beauty of this day is undeniable.

Anna and Albert were married at the bride’s parents’ resort on picturesque Platte Lake in Honor, Michigan. The rustic aesthetics of the cabins provided a jumping off point for the design combining all things Summer. The cheerful color palate featuring coral, yellow and emerald was accented by the shimmering turquoise waters and warm wood tones in the backdrop.The couple pledged their “I do’s” over the water surrounded by family and friends. Following the Ceremony, guests then made their way back onto land for a lively celebration. A small distance away, the tent was set for Dinner. As each person found their seat via the fruit stand display, they were welcomed by a bowl full of ripe, sweet cherries at their place setting. Cascading centerpieces featuring fresh fruit and seasonal blooms embellished the forest surroundings, while the lights draped overhead provided a warm, romantic glow.

After dinner, the tunes of the DJ filled the air. Some guests made their way through the motion booth- complete with ever so fitting resort themed props. Others danced the night away overtop the water, the waves crashing ashore. Fun desserts like cherry turnovers, bite sized Morsels and s’mores were a sweet ending to a beautiful Northern Michigan Summer wedding day.
