We will confess. We don't get nearly enough submissions in from Michigan it seems. This fabulous Midwestern state that borders four of the Great Lakes is known to be a water wonderland. It just so happens to be the state's nickname. So today, we are more than a little giddy to share some fabulous inspiration that offers just the perfect dose of stylish lakeside Michigan boathouse wedding ideas thanks to Rakoteet Photography. As part of the Styled Shoots Across America, planners Heather Benge Events and Ryan Abney Event Design along with florist Intrigue Designs created one vibrant summery scene that plays out in this gorgeous gallery with Belle Isle Boat House as the backdrop. Step into this blush and pastel blue stunner with pops of yellow and the daintiest of details to inspire your planning.

Stylish Lakeside Michigan Boathouse Wedding Ideas

These stylish lakeside boathouse wedding ideas come to life at Belle Isle Boat House, an undeniably charming venue with major history. One that dates back 115-years to be exact - just like the city of Detroit, for all you fact-lovers. And just like the major city, the Belle Isle Boast House is evolving. With a half-million-dollar renovation, the memory of the historic boat house's original grandeur can be felt radiating throughout the labyrinthine halls. In the same way that the building's Spanish-inspired arches, terracotta crests and gaping riverside views can shape an event with a visually arresting backdrop, today's weddings can help to reinvent the boat house as a full-fledged event venue. As they tout: "A distinctive space where history isn't just preserved - but created." Imagine your wedding day becoming part of a bigger story. Talk about leaving your mark and making an unforgettable fairytale one rich with history! As a photographer, whether a newbie or a seasoned pro, we highly encourage you to check out the Styled Shoots Across America and what this team is offering. Creative leaders who are traveling around the country creating and designing styled wedding shoots with all the details taken care of for you. Photographers are invited to come capture the beautiful details such as these to submit to publications (hello, Strictly Weddings) and use their images to help build their own brand. Brilliant.
