Macare & Dustin, Part I

I am sure every wedding planner feels they have the best clients but I know I have the best clients! This year we kicked off our season with a lovely couple, Macare (Kelly) and Dustin Lumbrezer.

I happened to know Macare and Dusty before they contacted A Day in May to help with their wedding. Macare's cousin is one of my best friends Christina (or Tina as mentioned in other posts) and her brother was a good friend in high school. Yes, Macare is from Traverse City! She and Dusty met while Macare was finishing Dental School at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!).

Macare and Dusty chose Crooked Creek Ranch located on the west shores of Lake Leelanau in Cedar, Michigan as the perfect backdrop for their summer soiree and had an intimate ceremony at Immaculate Conception Church in Traverse City.

With the bride's roots firmly planted in Traverse City and the groom's from Ohio, Northern Michigan was the perfect vacation and homecoming for their guests. The weekend started with a canoe trip down the Platte River from Riverside Canoes through the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore on Thursday with friends and family. On Friday Macare and her bridesmaids headed to Epiphany Salon in downtown Traverse City for some pampering while Dusty and his groomsmen hit the links at The Crown Golf Course. After their rehearsal the wedding party made their way to Old Mission Tavern on the Old Mission Peninsula- Macare's grandmother Verna Bartnick is the owner and sculptor who's art is featured at the tavern.

Saturday morning came around and the day could not have been any more perfect. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day courtesy of Jen Kroll Photography...
