A Juicy Love Affair

When a relationship has a juicy start, it's only right to create a custom juice box to commemorate the wedding day! Matt and Lauren's wedding was as sweet as the first juice box they shared as a couple. Their white and green wedding aesthetic was elegant yet sophisticated. With their classy theme and a beautiful August day to look over our sparkling bay view, Matt and Lauren's outdoor wedding was as sweet as their lifetime romance.

Bay View Weddings at Gallagher Farms made our wedding dreams come true! My wife and I love Northern Michigan in the summertime, and we knew there would be no better place to join our families than Traverse City. After looking into a few venues one stood out as our clear favorite. Bay View Weddings. From our very first visit to the property, we knew it would be an unforgettable day. The view: Wow! What better way to express our boundless love than through nature’s breathtaking grandeur? The entire farm was lovely with many ceremony location options and photo opportunities. We got shots in the apple orchards, the rustic barn, a small pondside cabin, and of course, West Bay. They even let us take engagement photos in the cherry blossoms! Rose, our wedding coordinator, was spectacular throughout the entire process. She was prompt, helpful, and passionate. All the planning and coordination was taken care of, and Rose had all the contingencies covered to ensure our day was perfect. The venue had good relationships with local vendors, which made it easy as well. Our ceremony at the Bay View Hill Top transitioned to a wonderful cocktail hour with yard games and bistro lights. The circular bar was a huge hit! Even though most of our guests were from Michigan, it felt like a destination wedding because of Traverse City’s beauty and endless recreational offerings. Each person who stepped foot on the Overlook agreed it was an unparalleled panorama. Seriously, the #1 thing we heard from people was how gorgeous the setting for our day was. We could not have imagined a more perfect ceremony and reception, and we have Bay View Weddings at Gallagher Farms to thank for that!
