Separate and together, we have always loved the beauty and serenity of Lake Michigan. Growing up, each of our families would spend many weekends near the lakeshore, AJ’s family in Ludington and Mackinac Island, Becky’s family in Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We met sailing, spent many dates out on the water and were engaged on the docks of the Petoskey marina.
Our October wedding was perfect. The leaves on the trees were vibrant and the temperatures were cool and crisp, allowing us to have our ceremony under the conservatory. Our reception took place in the H.O. Rose Dining Room where we could watch the sunset on the beautiful autumn colors and our favorite surroundings, Lake Michigan.
