Marquette History Museum Wedding

We are smitten with Ashley and Jake’s wedding in Marquette, MI. The navy blue, white, and green themed worked beautifully with the backdrop of Northern Michigan and Lake Superior’s shoreline. Jen met up with Ashley and her bridesmaids at her house. The gals looked stunning in their navy blue dresses as they helped Ashley into her gorgeous wedding gown. Alex joined Jake and his groomsmen near the ceremony location on Presque Isle. The guys were dapper in their gray suits and plaid blue ties. The location was perfect with all the trees surrounded the ceremony venue protecting it from the warm winds off the water.

During the ceremony Jake and Ashley had a love letter/wine box ceremony. That’s were they wrote each other a love note and put a bottle of wine in the box to seal during the ceremony. The goal is to open the box on their first anniversary, drink the wine, and read the notes–however if they face a hard day in their marriage they are to open the box then. Afterwards they should write new love notes, put a new bottle of wine in, and also include the first love notes. We think it’s a beautiful idea.

After they said, ‘I do’ we brought the newlyweds and their bridal party around the island for pictures, however the wind was a little too strong so we went in the woods near downtown for pictures. The green of the forest really popped with the colors of their wedding. The bridal party jumped back onto the party bus while the bride & groom finished their portraits. Afterwards the bridal party relaxed and enjoyed a beer at Ore Dock Brewery while their guest started to make their way into the reception just down the street at Marquette Regional History Museum.

The clean white walls, floor to ceiling glass, and beautiful decorations really worked well together. Ashley made all the desserts–yes the wedding cake, cupcakes, and cookies! She is incredible! After a delicious dinner it was time for dancing and oh what a celebration it was! Right before we left though we brought the happy couple down the road for a few sunset photos along Lake Superior. It was a great ending to a wonderful day!

Thanks again to Ashley and Jake for all the love, laughter, and for allowing us to capture all the fun! Enjoy!
