A Northern Michigan Beach Wedding

When a couple decides to get married, the one thing they know right away is that they want their wedding to be perfect. But what does that mean? It is easy for newly engaged couples to feel overwhelmed. There are so many choices and the options are unlimited. What to do?



Shannon and Troy had known each other for a number of years as their younger brothers had been best friends. The couple had gone to high school together, but it wasn't until Troy returned from the Navy and Shannon home from college that they reconnected. As Shannon put it, "things from there just fell into place."


For Shannon and Troy they knew from the start that they wanted to have a wedding that reflected who they were, and for them, that included a destination wedding. Although she had never been to Traverse City, Troy had vacationed in the area many times and loved it. After much research on line for the perfect wedding venue, Shannon fell in love with the photos of the Parkshore Resort.


Indeed, the Parkshore Resort fit their needs and desires perfectly. It is located on Grand Traverse East Bay, and features a lovely landscaped lawn with a white gazebo to provide a stunning background for a wedding. It also offers an expansive beach area for ceremonies as well.

Another reason for the couple choosing the Parkshore Resort, was that it offered a dedicated wedding planning staff. Shannon remarked that the Parkshore staff was readily available and always helpful. With the help of Fawn the wedding coordinator and her staff, the couple could relax and enjoy planning their wedding getaway, instead of stressing out over a multitude of wedding day details.

 Shannon and Troy designed a wedding that combined both traditional and non-traditional elements. On a picture perfect August day, the lovely bride was escorted down the aisle by her father. Her face was beaming and she looked stunning in her short, playful, wedding dress. At the gazebo she was greeted by the happy, smiling groom who had also opted for a more casual groom attire....shorts and flip flops.


Including family was important to the couple, so the each had their brothers stand up with them. The actual ceremony for the most part was traditional and romantic, but to make it their own and reflect that their relationship was unique, Shannon and Troy exchanged personal vows that they had written for each other.







After group photos of family and friends were taken, the couple were off to the beach for some candid photos in the sand and surf.






It was a spectacular, memorable day for the couple, one that they will forever cherish.
