Sarah & Mike’s Marquette, Michigan Wedding

Marie Kelsey’s 2019 wedding season kicked off on the second official day of summer with an incredible couple. Mike and Sarah traveled to Marquette, Michigan to be married in front of their friends and family on a perfect June Saturday. The couple and many of their guests traveled from great distances – Washington, D.C.; Colorado; Texas; Virginia; Wisconsin and more. It was so special to have so many guests from all over the country venture to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to support the couple as they said, “I do.”
