A bride with an affection for Gatsby-inspired glamor and her pilot groom with a passion for travel came together in perfect harmony on a sunshine-filled Michigan summer day. Friends and family from far and wide gathered together on the pristine blue waterfront of Bay Harbor to watch the couple commit their lives to one another before an aviation paper airplane toss recessional set the newlyweds off into their cocktail hour. A soft and romantic color palette of blush, sage, ivory, and gold complemented the indoor space of The Inn at Bay Harbor, where guests dined on a four-course meal and helped themselves to a mini pie bar served à la mode. A magically lit tented terrace space provided guests with just the right ambiance to dance the night away. As the sun melted into the horizon and happy guests sang along with the live entertainment, the bride joyfully twirled in her gold glittery reception dress into the arms of her grateful groom. Happily ever after indeed.
