Melissa and Adam’s day started out with some of us taking a lovely ferry ride across the Straights of Mackinac to Bois Blanc Island to greet them at Insel House, a quaint B&B where the wedding party was all spending the day getting ready together.
Bois Blanc Island is a special place for Adam & Melissa – her family has vacationed there for years, and when they started dating at 16, it was one of their first little trips together. In fact, the dock where we photographed them is the spot where Adam asked Melissa to be his wife.
The island may be rustic, but it is full of special memories for these two, and now their wedding celebration is added to that list of “do you remember whens”.
Speaking of memories….one of my couples, from 3 years ago, was a part of this wedding. Brad & Stacy are like my wedding boomerangs – minus the tossing them away part – they just keep coming back. I’m honored to have been a part of their wedding three years ago, and now so many of their friends! It’s fun to see these faces year after year, and to celebrate with this great group. You can see in their interactions that the friendships in this wedding party go deep – years of fun, trial, love & support are what this crew is about.
We wrapped up the evening with a tasty Italian dinner extravaganza, full of Missy’s family recipes, and served by family, with love.
Missy & Adam, your friendship for and love for each other is so evident – thank you for letting us celebrate with you, and here is to a lifetime of beautiful memories…on and off that lovely little island.
