From Clane Gessel PhotographyAn elegant Bay Harbor Yacht Club wedding in Petoskey, Michigan. The bride chose soft colors for her outdoor ceremony. The bridesmaids were dressed in a variety of light pinks and champagnes; the groomsmen in classy navy suits with subtle polka dots a black collar and matching black bowties, but don’t miss out on their snazzy yellow polka dot dress socks too! The ceremony had white petals down the aisle and a wooden cross at the alter. The reception was inside the yacht club decorated with gold candle holders, lit white candles, white roses to match and a variety of greens. The inside had a rustic feel with wooden signs and antique tables.

The couple met through mutual friends during their time at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Bianca’s sorority sister was dating one of Aaron’s teammates at the time. The proposal took place in Lake Tahoe, CA during a hiking trip. Aaron planned a surprise picnic on the beach. The nuptials took place on June 18, 2016 at the Bay Harbor Yacht Club in Petoskey, Michigan.

From Santiago Murillo PhotographyFrom the moment I first met with Melanie and Jonathan, I could already picture their greenhouse wedding to be one of the most beautiful ones that I’ve had the pleasure of shooting. From the moment I stepped into the gardens of the Goldner Walsh, I instantly knew that this was was no ordinary wedding.

The entire venue is covered with such a variety of gorgeous spots, that I was initially so overwhelmed with how many great options we had for photographing their portraits. Starting from the simple, yet very elegant industrial design of the reception hall, to the carefully placed garden accents in the greenhouse, I immediately knew that due to it’s uniqueness, this wedding would be a perfect fit for Green Wedding Shoes!

Melanie and Jonathan were such an incredible couple to work with! Both are such gregarious charismatic people, which made my job much easier as every single photography truly depicted how much love they have not only for one another, but for every single person in that wedding. It was such a joy to be able to work with both of them! Their lovely presence in each image definitely made this wedding one of my absolute favorites!
