So it goes a little something like this… Phillip used to be a private chef on a yacht. One day, while docked in Charlevoix, Michigan, he stopped in at the local market to buy all of the ingredients for the next trip. This meant, he was buying large quantities of items since they would be out on the water for a while. On this particular grocery trip, Phil needed to buy a lot of limes. Amber happened to find herself in the produce section at the same time, and found Phil purchasing every single lime that the store had in stock. Now, whether it was the intrigue of Phil buying all of the limes, Amber’s necessity to purchase a few limes for herself, her attraction to this handsome Aussie, or maybe all of the above… Amber struck up a conversation with Phil. And it was there, buying limes, that their relationship began!

Amber + Phil are filled with so much life and beauty. They appreciate adventure and traveling, they have a deep respect for each other and love each other like crazy. Though they currently reside in Australia, they chose to start their marriage where it all began – in Charlevoix. They said their vows on Amber’s family farm, took pictures by the water and at the market where they met and danced the night away at the Dhaseleer Barn, just a few miles away from downtown. You know those days where everything just seems magical? Those days where the people you interact with, the places you get to visit – the beauty of the individuals and of the earth just seem particularly magnified? This wedding day was one of those days… it was magical…
“You can take the girl out of Northern Michigan, but you can’t take the Northern Michigan out of the girl”Amber’s dad found enough church pews at an auction to fill the family barn for the ceremony. Loved that idea!For a twist on the unity ceremony, Amber + Phil placed their vows and a bottle of wine in a box for them to hold on to – they are to keep the box displayed in their home and only to unlock the box when they need a little reminder of the commitment they made.Where it all began…
