Cliff is Kelly’s bother’s best friend! They are another example of how fun it is to be able to plan a loved one’s big day. These two have extremely busy lives and the planning process reflected that with a lot of moving pieces. The couple chose to get married in Traverse City in a vineyard. They wanted it to be picturesque. This vision included winding roads, a vineyard, gold accents, and grapevines highlighting the decor of the day. The grapevine was carried through in the mens’ boutonnieres and the main arch at the ceremony! The design was formal but fun. For the reception, there were tall centerpieces with jewel tones that played off of the rich greenery and marsala fall colors. We loved how a little bit of their personality was added in with the Harry Potter themed Toms! As for the navy dress for the groomsmen, they did that because two of the brothers were in there service. It was an extremely noble and timeless look.
