Brent and Emily | Keweenaw Mountain Lodge wedding

Brent and Emily’s Keweenaw Mountain Lodge wedding was a gorgeous one despite the gloomy rainy day.   These two were surrounded and supported by such wonderful large families and you would never guess the weather was the way it was by their happy and joyful demeanor throughout the day.  🙂

This ring shot pretty much sums up the rainy weather 😉

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.

Tyler & Lindsey // Copper Harbor wedding

Tyler and Lindsey had the most fabulous
rustic destination wedding in Copper Harbor.  Their day started
out foggy, dreary and misty.  The couple and their guest stayed at the
Keweenaw Mountain Lodge where the reception was held.   Tyler and
Lindsey opted for an outdoor ceremony at the Eagle Harbor Life Saving Station.

I’ve been blessed with many beautiful
outdoor ceremonies this year and this one was no exception.
The skies cleared just as the ceremony began!
