Mackinac Island Wedding Photography // Shelley + Jim

Hello friends... we are so thrilled to be able to start sharing a few images from Shelley+Jim's Mackinac Island wedding!  It was a true, intimate, romantic and perfect elopement, and we are so honored that we were one of the few people there to witness it.

(And a HUGE shout out to Carole Erbel, with For the Love of Mackinac, for coordinating everything so wonderfully!!!)

Shelley+Jim, we hope you enjoy a few pictures from your first glance, and your ceremony!  ENJOY!!


Be sure to check back for more images from their carriage ride around Mackinac Island... 



Shelley+Jim were staying at the Hotel Iroquois (in the background), and decided to do a "first look" on the beach before heading up to the "Somewhere in Time Gazebo" for their ceremony.


Shelley, you looked radiant!!


This is one of my favorites from their moments before the ceremony! 


And this friends, might be my favorite shot from the ceremony.  If you look at Jim's eyes, you will see Shelley reflected in them. 


Mackinac Island Wedding Photography // Kelsey + Anthony

One of the reasons Mark and I LOVE shooting weddings in Northern Michigan and Mackinac Island, is that everywhere you turn the landscape is breath taking.  Sometimes the "gifts" of the location are tricky to find, and sometimes they are obvious...


More to come from this beautiful Mackinac Island wedding, so stay tuned...
