Everything about this day was just beautiful. Mike + Kyle are such fun individuals and their wedding celebration – the ceremony, the party, the details, their friends and family were all so wonderful. Plus, how can it not be a good time when you’re hanging out in Northern Michigan?? Jonathan and I love it up there and will always sneak in a few extra days whenever the summer schedule allows.
This wedding was the epitome of everything I love about the great Up North. The ceremony was held in the little lake town of Elk Rapids, in a brick church, full of history and charm. We took portraits in the vast, rolling orchards and arrived to the reception by boat. And, the reception was held in the backyard of Mike’s family cottage right on the water! I’m telling you, it was a perfect Up North celebration and I was honored to be there!
Without further adieu, please enjoy some of my favorite images from Mike + Kyle’s wedding story.If you’re not familiar with Northern Michigan, yes, the water does in fact look just as turquoise as the Caribbean. It’s absolutely fantastic – Midwest’s own paradise.
