CRYSTAL DOWNS COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING
MR. AND MRS. HARTWIG
September 1, 2019
On an incredibly beautiful summer day, in Northern Michigan, these two were celebrated their marriage with family and friends at the Crystal Downs Country Club. The Country Club is near Ashley’s family’s summer home on Crystal Lake. Her family has been coming to Northern Michigan for years to summer in the Frankfort area.
It is an incredibly beautiful area, filled with views of Lake Michigan, sand dunes that are a part of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and the always lovely Point Betsie Lighthouse. Crystal Downs Country Club sits up on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, Point Betsie and the dunes. It is an incredible location for a Northern Michigan Wedding Venue.
Ashley and Luke’s day was relaxing and filled with family and friends all morning as they prepared for their wedding. They took a few moments to have a first look and wander the dunes overlooking Lake Michigan prior to heading to their wedding at St. Andrew’s Church.
Ashley’s dad provided a classic car for Luke and Ashley to drive to their reception. With a brief stop along the side of the road, they managed to make it back to Crystal Downs to enjoy cocktail hour outside overlooking Sleeping Bear Dunes before moving inside to enjoy the incredible food, company, and an evening of dancing.
Luke and Ashley, you had such a spectacular wedding and celebration. I am so excited for the two of you as you begin your lives together as husband and wife. May you always continue to love and laugh together with whatever you do! Much love and appreciation. Rayan
