First off, Sofia and Dan’s Bay Harbor Tented Wedding was stunning! The couple had a stunning tented wedding along the bayside at Bay Harbor in Petoskey, Michigan. Planned and designed by Ann Travis Events. Florals designed and executed by Bloom Floral Design. We photographed their rehearsal dinner, welcome party, and wedding.
From the feminine wedding design, to the gorgeous invitation suite, this wedding was one for the books. Overlooking the water, every single element in their design and guest experienced was created specifically for Sofia and Dan. Even though we had some overcast weather, the rain held off!
Finally, the weekend started off with the rehearsal dinner being hosted at a family home overlooking the lake. The design was inspired by Sofia’s grandmother’s home and interior design style. Spending summers here, this was a special touch to Sofia and her family. The long family-style table was placed strategically in the main entryway of the home as a central hub. Guests mingled and enjoyed the beginning of the festivities for this Bay Harbor Tented wedding weekend.
Then, the couple got ready on-sight at the hotel, which made everything an easy all in one location! After slipping into their attire, the couple officially tied the knot at a local church, which was followed by portraits.
During Cocktail hour, it was hosted in one sailcloth tent, with a stunning floral wall seating chart. Guests mingled inside the tent with a live band, specialty cocktails, and delicious light bites while waiting for dinner. The stunning lattice design was incorporated from start to finish.
Further, Ann Travis Events wanted to create a cozy at home feel inside the dinner tent, which was executed by incorporating carpet as a floor, table lamps on the bar, and dimmed lighting with candles as ambiance. Guests enjoyed a traditional Italian dinner made up of several courses alongside wine pairings.
Following speeches and dinner, guests made their way back to the “dancing” tent! There, the live band rocked the house down all night long. Taking breaks from dancing, guests enjoyed late night sliders, french fries, and alcoholic milkshakes! Sofia and Dan danced the night away and enjoyed their Bay Harbor Tented Wedding.
