Breck and Lauren _ Porcupine Mountains wedding

Breck and Lauren were married at the top of the Porcupine Mountain ski hill a few Saturday’s ago.   What an amazing place to be married!   Their reception was on site at the ski lodge at the bottom of the hill.   Riding the chairlift up and down the hill was a fun experience especially considering the amazing view over Lake Superior.

Danny and Gabby_UP wedding

Danny and Gabby had a wonderful wedding last Saturday in the Pelkie area.  Despite what the weatherman said, it poured and stormed that day but thankfully it was all pretty much the ceremony.  We even had some sunshine for the portraits on Lake Superior.

Drew and Jessica _Marsin Nature Center Wedding

Drew and Jessica were married on one of those dreamy summer Saturday’s in the U.P. where it’s sunny and beautiful.  Not too hot, not too cool.  They could not have picked a better setting for a wedding on this type of day.   They were married at the Marsin Nature Retreat Center in Houghton, MI overlooking Lake Superior’s Portage Canal.

Erick and Ashley / Calumet, Mi wedding

Erick and Ashely were married in Calumet on the chilliest and foggiest Saturday at the restored historic St. Anne’s church which is now the Keweenaw Heritage Center.  Despite the weather, these two had so much joy and happiness on their day and completely rolled with whatever Mother Nature brought us.  I will admit, the fog made for some pretty cool pictures!
