Intimate Grand Hotel Wedding on Mackinac Island

HAPPY FRIDAY everyone!!!  Did you know there are around 7 billion people in the world?  With that in mind, it’s pretty amazing to me that so many people actually find their soul mate.  You know, that one person who is the clearest definition of love.  That one person who makes you cry when you laugh, who lets you sing out loud even when you’re tone deaf, and who carefully carries your heart.  

I love that Mark and I have jobs where we get to witness this kind of love, on a daily basis.  Talking with our 2017 brides about their upcoming wedding plans to the guy of their dreams, reminds me that there is abundant kindness in this crazy and chaotic world.  It’s a gift!

Mark and I LOVED photographing this cute couple last summer, at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. High school sweethearts, soul mates, who found each other at a young age even though there are more then 7 billion people in the world!

I’m raising my coffee cup to all my entrepreneurial friends out there, doing the hustle to make their dreams come to life!

Beautiful Elopement on Mackinac Island

Anyone else feel like they've fallen off the New Years resolution band wagon yet? I'm trying to be gentle in reminding myself that change is a slow and simple process. You do something one day, and then you get up and do it again.

I am a big dreamer, and love to have my head in a cloud. But we all have to remember that even though the view is cool from the clouds, we still have to have our feet on the ground. Because dreams take planning and doing if they are ever to come true.

I LOVED shooting this elopement on Mackinac Island last summer. Everything was perfectly coordinated by Carole Erbel with For the Love of Mackinac, there was the perfect amount of sunshine, a super sweet bride and groom, and horses. It's Mackinac Island, there always has to be horses!!

Happy Thursday folks, coffee cup clinks all the way around!


A super sweet elopement on Mackinac Island!!
