Awesome Winter Wedding from 2019 — Maire and Tyler Lajko won the Winter Wedding Giveaway! $32K worth of services. Here’s a few pics of their wedding:

Northwestern Michigan is the one of the most beautiful places on the planet. It’s no wonder people love to come here to get married. Beach weddings in the Grand Traverse, Emmet, Leelanau and the surrounding areas are spectacular. But so are weddings with blue spruce and cedar heavy with snow. They too, are a beautiful backdrop for a northern winter wedding. There’s a coziness and closeness that comes with a winter wedding.

Consider Having Your Winter Wedding in North Michigan


During winter in the Grand Traverse, Emmet and Leelanau areas, you have less competition for wedding resources. While some locations are closed for the winter, there are many lovely places that keep their doors open, such as Mission Table on Old Mission Peninsula, The Homestead Resort, in Glen Arbor, Northport’s Willowbrook Mill, the Stafford Bay View Inn and Perry Hotel in Petoskey. Florists can meet your needs, photographers can help much easier in the winter, and the lighting can be perfect!

Another option is to have a vow renewal ceremony in the winter. There’ve been a number of renewals I’ve conducted for couples when it’s freezing outside, and the way the weather draws us inside to the warmth, seems to bring people closer to their heart.

You can have a wonderful vow renewal ceremony and I love to share it. I love the words, and respect the couple who after years of being together still says to each other, you are the one I want to be with through thick and thin, truly for better or worse.

If you have been married for at least five years, consider a vow renewal this winter. It will warm your heart.
