New Buffalo Michigan Wedding | Julie & Kevin
Once in a while we get extra lucky and take part in something that breaks the mold. You meet a couple that wants to get away from the expectations of a big city wedding and just wants to be surrounded by close family to share and celebrate what truly matters. When we read about what Julie & Kevin were planning, we hoped and crossed our fingers that we would be included in their plans and so we were.
Julie & Kevin planned for a sunset beach wedding on a private property in New Buffalo Michigan. The day stated off with strong storms off an on throughout the day. With the weather uncertainty, they began setting up for an indoor ceremony in the dining room. When I arrived, I gave a little nudge to wait just a few minutes, as the storm had a slight chance to pass and it would be a shame to not have what they had dreamed for (plus I drove 2 hours through the storms and refuse to come home empty handed). Sure enough, the sun started shining and gave us a beautiful sunset along with rainbows for about an hour, just enough to have a short ceremony and beach photos. How magical is that!
Not having enough time to move the ceremony to the beach, the chairs were quickly set up on the deck overlooking Lake Michigan. After a beautiful sunset ceremony, we headed to the beach for some photos with the bride and groom and their daughters. And we have to say, this time frame and conditions is what most photographers wish for. As you can see, all their photos are simply amazing. Right after the rainbow shot, we had to sprint back through the sands as the storms came right back. Thank you weather gods for allowing us an hour of pure magic to realize Julie & Kevin’s dream wedding.
Congratulations Julie & Kevin! And thank you for choosing Life On Prints to capture your very special day!
