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!!!

A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING AT THE INN AT STONECLIFFE

Some days I feel like superwoman. Other days I end up with the laundry in the oven. And I am saying this mostly to myself, but it's okay if some days are tougher then others. It doesn't mean anything is wrong, that's just life. I can't even tell you how many things in life I have desperately wanted that never came my way. But I can look around and see my amazing family, a few great friends, a fabulous job, and oh so much opportunity for growth!! So, that's what I am focusing on today.
 

ABOUT THE PHOTO: This was such a beautiful wedding on Mackinac Island at the hisotrical mansion, The Inn at Stonecliffe!! Love the Mighty Mac as the ceremony backdrop, and the soft colors the bride picked out. ❤

I've got my coffee in hand, let's raise a mug to a productive day! And if you put your laundry in the oven today, just don't turn the oven on and all will be okay.

Mackinac Wedding at Island House Hotel

I've learned a lot over the years. I have learned that things don't always turn out as planned, get fixed, or go the way you think they should. Some things stay broken, and some dreams never come to pass. But I've also learned that what this life is really about is good friends, and great adventures. Surround yourself with a loyal tribe, and you'll always end up with a smile and a lot of laughter!

Molly, you were a beautiful bride, and I loved photographing you with your girl squad!! So many natural smiles and true bonds of friendship!

Here's to a great weekend, let's get out there and love every minute of it (I'll be working, so it's a good thing I love my job!!)!
