The weather was perfect on Mackinac Island, the sun was shining, and the ferry’s were bustling all the guests over for this amazing day at the Grand Hotel.

Quintessential Northern Michigan Wedding in Traverse City – Ainsley & Chip

Danielle & Justin met in a way that is clearly providential and not just coincidental.
