Bay Harbor Wedding

I was looking forward to second shooting for Siri Salonen Photography for a while now. Her bright and humor-filled personality is a joy to be around, especially while photographing alongside of one another. It was a hot, sunny August day as we drove up to Petoskey together for Allison & Sam’s wedding.

We arrived early to St Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Petoskey. It was similar to the Catholic church I group up going to. Gorgeous architecture, rich in history, and beautiful words spoken. Sam and Allison had a lovely full Catholic ceremony filled with their bridal party, family, and friends onlooking. The gentleman looked handsome dressed in khaki suits and no ties. The bridesmaids looked trendy in black jumpsuits and gold bracelet cuffs. And last, but not least, Allison wowed in her off the shoulder dress that looked incredible on her.

After the ceremony, everyone made their way to Bay Harbor’s Marina lawn for the cocktail hour and the reception. Guests were treated to drinks as well as cigars honoring the bride’s late father. The views from the tented reception were in true Northern Michigan fashion; water and a marina packed with boats on Bay Harbor. After dinner, the live band starting rocking the night away. Everyone was up out of the seats dancing because the band was incredible!

Then right before the sun was gone Siri brought Sam and Allison out along the water for a few minutes of pictures, just the two of them. It was a couple minutes of quiet for the newlyweds and for us, the photographers, it was beautiful portraits with the colors of sunset in the background. It was the best way to end a fun day of second shooting. Thanks again Siri Salonen Photography. Enjoy!
