Chris and I have been together so long that far before the proposal we knew we wanted an outdoor wedding. I am a very churchy girl; but we both just absolutely love the beauty of the outdoors, especially the beach. But no - the first place we looked at for our ceremony was not the beach. I wanted something bigger, better, and always came up empty handed. I found myself talking to our friends about how Chris and I grew up miles from the sandy shores of Lake Huron, how we had picnics there late at night, how we spent summer days there, and quick Subway or Dairy Queen stops to finish our yummy food together, and I was always excited talking about it. So we decided to go look at the most beautiful setting along the beach in all of Alcona and Iosco Counties, that we felt could also make the greatest impact upon our guests.
This place, formerly the Holiday Inn, is now known as Tawas Bay Beach Resort in little East Tawas. We fell in love with it! And on the same day, we went and looked at the Community Center, which I had never been to, and fell in love with that even more!!!!
Here's the resort pics:
