Fountain Point Inn Lake Leelanau Wedding

Brianne and Jon planned a wedding that made time to slow down, enjoy good music, converse with friends and celebrate each other. The highlight of the day for me was during Brianne and Jon’s first dance – Brianne had orchestrated that all of their friends who are musicians come up and join Charlie Whitten (the band who performed their first dance song) in a multitude of different instruments. They circled Brianne and Jon playing guitars, drums with hearts on them and even egg shakers. Jon was incredibly surprised, it was emotional and it was one of those moments that make me feel so dang lucky to witness these types of events. This team of vendors was so creative and so beautiful – they are listed at the end of the blog post. Wedding Coordinator – Sarah Rhodes Boyce // Stationary – Sable & Gray // Wedding Band(s) Charlie Whitten, Red Tail Ring, The Daylites // Wedding Cake – Aunt B’s // Florist – Sweetwater // Caterer – Island Thyme // Bridal Shop – One Oak Bride // Salon – Salon 804
