A Northern Michigan Wedding Experience | Melissa and Alex | Mari Vineyards | The Cathedral Barn | Traverse City, MI

Ok so what this blog should really be called is the ultimate Northern Michigan wedding experience. Even though it was a November wedding in Traverse City there was still incredible fall color lingering for Melissa and Alex’s wedding. The bride had planned the most incredible day. As she walked down the aisle in their cozy barn venue the groom teared up seeing her for the first time. They said their wonderful I do’s and then we made our way out to the incredible locations Melissa had in store.

First stop was downtown Traverse City overlooking the incredible lake view. It was so chilly but everyone was awesome and braved the cold. We hopped back on the bus and made our way to the most beautiful vineyard I have seen to date called, Mari Vineyards. We had gotten permission to take some killer photos including going down into their insanely beautiful underground wine cellar. The vineyard was on top of a hill overlooking the most incredible fall color views.

After that we made our way back the the Cathedral barn for the reception. Melissa and Alex had a giant donut instead of a traditional cake which I peer pressured them into eating from both sides instead of cutting it lol. They gladly agreed ha ha! The rest of the night was filled with good food and dancing and we ended it with making a quick trip to the local historic asylum. It was creepy but beautiful and was a perfect epic ending to an amazing Northern Michigan Wedding day!
