Grand Traverse Resort and Spa....Again

On September 6 Purcell Photography was back at one of our favorite venues.

The Pavillion Tent at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa was the ceremony site for Luke and Laura (you remember their soap opera don't you? :-)

It was a lovely day and our bride was lovely as well. It is so nice to be at the Resort because of all the different photo opportunities. We took full advantage of this before and after the ceremony going around to all our favorite spots.

The Pavillion which is a covered area behind the Resort was where the ceremony was held and the officiant was the groom's brother. It certainly added a nice touch because he was able to personalize the ceremony.

It was a gorgeous evening and after dinner our couple agreed we should take more pictures around the resort, thus we got some great shots during the "golden time" just prior to sunset.

Laura and Luke were great to work with and ended up with many awesome photos.

Traverse City Wedding Photographer wishes them all the best!!!!

Wedding at Traverse City Resort and Spa

It was a beautiful July 26th in Traverse City, Michigan. Mike and Renee had chosen the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa to host their wedding and Purcell Photography to record their memories.

Our couple choose our Storybook package which features unlimited time for photo coverage which we love because we get to experience the entire event and have a front row seat as the day unfolds.

We first caught up to our lovely bride at the Spa, as she and the ladies of the wedding were getting their hair done and enjoyed a little bit of pampering before the day got too hectic. The men, of course, were out playing golf!

We love working at the resort. It offers us so many wonderful options for memorable photos. We were able to take some spectacular bridal portraits of Renee overlooking the greens of the golf course with the tower of the resort in the background.

Mike and Renee choose the resorts beach setting, The Shores, located on the east arm of Grand Traverse Bay, for their outdoor ceremony.

Back at the main resort the reception was held in The Michigan Room. After dinner as the sun began to set, we took our couple out for some fun shots with their wedding party. We then took advantage of the beautiful evening to get romantic shots of Mike and Renee.

We should note that once the celebration started, it STARTED! It is suffice to say the Renee and Mike and their friends take their partying seriously...unfortunately for our BLOG we had to save the best reception photos for our couple's Flush Mount album.

Everyone had a great time and so did we.

We at Purcell Photography wish the very best to our wonderful couple.

Sunshine wins again!!

On Saturday May 17th Purcell Photography traveled to the Charlevoix for a Betsy and Jonah's wedding at the charming Belvedere Club.

Our couple had planned a beatuful spring time wedding in Norhtern Michigan, but alas, an hour before the start of the wedding it was pouring rain. Our bride, however, was taking it all in stride as it was going to take more than a little rain to ruin her special day.

The pink umbrellas were perfect and useful props for the all the ladies as pictures were taken. And, as it always seem to happen, we finish taking photos on our dry porch, the sky began to lighten, the clouds parted and blue sky appreared on the horizon. Volunteers were rounded up and the towel brigade went to work, chairs were dryed and guests were seated.

As our lovely bride walked down the isle she did it in sunshine and loving gaze of her husband to be. Later, the celebration continued at the Belvedere Club...our best wishes to Betsy & Jonah
