We first met John and Margaret when they were visiting Marquette to do some wedding planning during the winter. They are the kind of people who always have a big smile on their faces and that joy that they share is contagious!
The ladies got ready at the Penthouse of the Landmark. They had a beautiful view of the city as they prepared for the day! The men got ready at an AirBnB that was perfect for their group. Everyone was transported to the Presque Isle Bandshell for the wedding ceremony by the trolley.
John and Margaret’s ceremony was so perfect. They wrote their vows together which were beautiful. Our favorite part was the Blessing of the Hands in the ceremony where their parents placed a cloth on their hands and a beautiful blessing was read while the parents placed their hands on their children.
After the ceremony, the group took a little hike through Presque to some quieter cliffs than Black Rocks for portraits. Then the trolley took them all to board the Pelican, a private yacht that took them around Lower Harbor. Their reception was at the Yacht Club and the wedding party arrived on the Pelican! We even got some drone footage of the boat arriving.
From there, all the people that love John and Margaret partied through the evening. When quiet hours began, everyone headed to the Delft Bistro for snacks and to watch the Michigan State game. John and Margaret’s happiness was felt by all throughout the day. We absolutely loved being a part of it all!
