Traveling to Mackinac Island for a wedding is one of my all time favorites events of the summertime in Northern Michigan!!! And, having already met Chelsey and Chris for their engagement photos, I knew that this destination wedding would be one for the books!!! And boy, it did not disappoint!! I knew the moment I walked into Chelsey’s suite that I was going to be in wedding photographer heaven – not only did she have the nicest bridesmaids ever (seriously!!) but her bridal details were to DIE for!!!! This classy Lux Light Bride knew how to style her day! Not only did she have a vintage handmade velvet box from Mrs.Box, but the luxurious stylings from BLOOM Floral Design were the perfect whimsical accent to the glamorous gown hanging in her suite. I could have sat and photographed her bling for days!!!
But the moment that truly stands out in my mind was the super fun & relaxed carriage ride that we experienced after their outdoor ceremony. Lake Michigan glistened in the background, residents and guests to the island waved and cheered, and a bottle of bubbly was popped to celebrate…but this all paled in comparison to the genuine smiles and feeling of joy inside the carriage. Chelsey and Chris were married!!!!! And the perfect end to this celebration was the private ride around the island!! But the merriment continued as we entered their reception, to be greeted by their energetic guests, 2 freakin awesome toasts (complete with Christmas props) and some killer dance moves by a feature Michael Jackson (who also happened to be the ring bearer!)
To Chelsea & Chris – Thank you for being REAL! You guys were filled with sarcasm, wit, and hilarious laughs that kept me smiling all day!!! Your photos are timeless, but the memories I have with you guys, will forever be remembered!! Love you guys!!!!
