When you meet Kelsey for the first time, you feel the peaceful and joyful nature that she radiates.  And when you see Kelsey and Dan together, you cannot help but see happiness, joy, and laughter.

For their wedding, they choose one of the most peaceful and intimate locations for a venue and celebrations: The Watervale Inn in Arcadia, Michigan.  On this very cold and rainy day in Arcadia, Michigan – there was a warmth because of the love and support that surrounded Kelsey and Dane.

The day was incredible beautiful, the wedding was held inside of the Casino at the Watervale Inn – which has an entire wall filled with windows so you can look out on the beautiful view of Lower Herring Lake.  The Inn is warm and intimate and served a completely lovely dinner, followed by more celebrations in the Casino.

Kelsey and Dane, thank you for the honor of allowing us to document your wedding day.  You and your families and friends made us feel privileged to get to know you better and document such a wonderful day.  I wish you the best as you begin your first year together as husband and wife.  Much love, Rayan.

Victoria’s Floral Design created some beautiful flowers for the entire day!

Kelsey was simply a stunning bride, and Bonny and Sara did beautiful hair and makeup for this incredible day.

Kelsey gave her niece, and flower girl, a gift of a necklace for the day.  She clearly loved her new jewelry.

It is tradition at the Watervale Inn to find the bell for dinner…

Just before dinner, the sun peaked out from behind the clouds for a few sunset photos with the lovely bride and groom.

A fantastic celebration following dinner in the casino with family and friends.
