It’s no coincidence, our time spent living out in California helps to draw all the West Coast couples right to our door! If Christine and John’s Save The Dates were any indication, we knew we’d be implementing some Cali flair into their lakeside wedding.

If you’re not arriving to walk down the aisle in Retro Boats, are you even having a Saugatuck wedding? The groom pulled up in a retro cherry speeder, with the bride following shortly after. Once the Greek-inspired ceremony concluded, the crew boarded their water-bound transportation to take stunning bridal party portraits on the lake, shot by the ever talented, Arielle Teft Photography.

Arriving at Apple Blossom Chapel and Gardens, the guests were greeted with a surfboard guest book to sign, and the promise of an al fresco dance floor under the stars. Dinner was served family style by Salt of the Earth, encompassing that outdoor Cali style feel into their evening.

Twinkle lights on the outdoor gazebos lit the workings of Jorge, who was on site hand-rolling cigars for the groom and the guests. Even at the end of the evening, Christine was stunning with her soft swept curls, as her and John danced barefoot into the late hours of the night. Thanks for bringing us back, back to Cali, Cali!
