Until then a bit more on our venue choice. Was the wedding going to be in Washington DC or MI? In the end Michigan won out as I really want Rut's family (who is traveling all the way from Thailand) to get to see where I grew up. Now this was to be the tricky part, by choosing Boyne we were also choosing to select our venue without an initial walk through. So, I immediately began to scour the Internet for locations that I was familiar with in the area, and believe me there are some beautiful locations, but nothing really fit all our requirements. Feeling a little discouraged, Rut made a phone call to our favorite local restaurant and just by chance the manager had just been to a beautiful wedding at a new yacht club on Lake Charlevoix. One recommendation, a phone call and a few emails later we had found our dream location!
Here are some pictures of our visit to Sommerset Point Yacht Club over Thanksgiving. I can't wait I think it will be beautiful in June!
