Tara & Alex’s wedding at Mission Table

They work with the public, love spending time with family and friends, and love to relax and enjoy a glass of wine together, so it’s no surprise that Tara and Alex had the perfect wedding at Mission Table .

Intimate spaces, gardens, and delicious food and wine created an atmosphere that allowed everyone to celebrate Tara and Alex’s love and commitment to each other.

I asked Tara if she would like to share some of her experience and she graciously did :)

I have combined it with the photos.

Congratulations Tara and Alex! Here’s to a lifetime of joy and love!

I want to mention that my bridesmaid Laura made all of the bouquets the morning of the wedding herself (huge savior).

Right before walking down the aisle I was most nervous (mainly I didn’t want to fall). During the actual ceremony I felt good, but it was a more “out of body” experience.

The thing I liked best was that Tracy took charge of the situation and commanded everyone’s attention.  I was glad you were there to keep everyone focused.

We LOVED the photos!

Every moment of our day was captured perfectly. From getting ready, all the way to our reception.

We loved the candid shots and the photos by the water the most. The only hesitation I had was walking through the sand/plants to capture the water photos.

I am so glad I listened to you. Those shots were some of our favorites!Tara-Alex-Wedding-Bowers-Traverse-City-MI-c-KarunaPhoto-photo097 copyTara-Alex-Wedding-Bowers-Traverse-City-MI-c-KarunaPhoto-photo098 copy

It was exactly the place we were looking for and had imagined.

The view from the lawn and the grounds themselves made an amazing backdrop for our pictures.

Our family is still talking about how amazing the food and wine was, and our servers (Tim and Tim) were awesome!
