A Beautiful Mackinac Island Elopement

And this, my friends, is what "happily ever after" looks like. What girl wouldn't want to elope in her grandmothers vintage fur, in a buttefly conservatory, followed by a stroll around the cutest little shed on Mackinac Island!?!

Happy Friday friends, time to bust out the pumpkin spice coffee and celebrate fall!

Elopement on Mackinac Island

 

I am thankful for a job that has brought me to Mackinac Island. Because it’s kind of like a dream here. Except it’s not. It’s real. There really are horse drawn carriages, amazing flowers, an 8 mile road with only bikes riding around it, and people walking around with large smiles at all times. People always seem to want to know how Mark and I ended up on this quaint little island, and my answer in a nutshell is curiosity. “What would it be like to work one wedding a year on Mackinac Island?” As a girl who grew up “down-state” in another quaint little town called Northville, I have always loved the little island and the magic you feel every time you step off that ferry boat. Has it always been easy? Has it always made sense? Has it always been a clear path? Of course not. Like I said, this island is real, and so is life living in on it. But, curiosity will lead you down many amazing paths in life, and don’t we owe it to ourselves to follow them?

A big shout out to Carole Erble, for helping this beautiful elopement go off perfectly!!!

Beautiful Michigan Wedding at H Hotel in Midland, MI

Pretty much blown away that it is mid-August. I swear I feel fall in the air, and yet somehow I find myself in sporadic moments planning for the Fourth of July as if it’s still mid-June!! Anyone else ever feel this way? Well, thankfully my summer has been busy with amazing shoots, and sprinkled with a few lake days every now and then. 

ABOUT THE PHOTO: Mark and I got to travel downstate a few weeks ago to photograph this beautiful wedding in downtown Midland that just exuded homespun love and lots of style! A gorgeous bouquet, a quaint walking bridge in the background, and of course a couple who is crazy happy in love always makes my Tuesday a little bit brighter! 

So, hello Tuesday Morning. Monday was a good day, but you’re going to be even better! I’ve got my coffee mug full, and I’m ready for you!
