Tuesday we made the trip up north to help my future SIL with wedding details.
They are getting married in a small town, one that I have mentioned my love of a few times in my blog, Glen Lake.
The day was beautiful, sunny and about 63 degrees. It is about a 3 hour trip each way and riding in a car all day makes for sore buns!!
But so worth it. :)
We met with her caterer and visited the reception hall and the small chapel that they will be married in.
This chapel is a part of historic Glen Arbor, Michigan and sits in a historic part called Old Settlers Park.
Isn't is beautiful!!
And it overlooks Glen Lake..
We couldn't get inside the chapel but it was so beautiful, so simple and so perfect for them.
I adore the steeple bell.
This is what it looks like in the summer with all the beautiful hydrangeas, ferns, and annuals planted around.
Can you imagine walking up the pathway in your beautiful wedding gown?
The wedding is not very big, about 40 people or so, I am really excited and couldn't be happier for them.
I mentioned that we saw the reception hall and I will share that at a later time, you will love it!
I wanted to show you something else as well.
I love Lake Michigan and I love it even more the farther north you get.
Why you ask?
Let me show you....
the colors of the lake are so vivid and blue and the water is so clear!!
It really reminds me of the ocean at times.
The brown spots you see in the water are posts from an old dock that used to be there. This area has so much history.
The island that you see in the distance is the North Manitou Island.
If you are interested in learning more about it you can read here.
Oh and we did manage to find ourselves at a local winery up there and I managed to bring me a bottle or two home. :)
I will not be around much until Monday, we are finishing up sports for the kids this weekend as well as work and a wedding to go to so I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and I will see you next week and hopefully I can catch up with everyone!
