Dylan and Jenni / Keweenaw wedding

Dylan and Jenni were married on a rainy Saturday a few weeks back.  Rainy wedding days can still be beautiful and fun!   We had a little bit of time in the afternoon where the rain held up just enough to get outside for some photos.    They were married at a historic church in Calumet with their reception at the Franklin Square Inn in Houghton.

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!

Jeff + Lydia { Finnish American Heritage Center }

Jeff and Lydia’s wedding was on one of the hottest
days this summer but the heat didn’t put a damper on their day at all.  They were
one of the sweetest couples I have had the privilege of photographing.  It was a wonderful
wedding day with the ceremony taking place at Evangel Baptist in Houghton.

Lydia’s gown was absolutely gorgeous!

I love that they went with amethyst in the engagement ring.   Lydia’s favorite color is
purple so it is very fitting 🙂And you all know how much I love etchings inside the rings 🙂   Jeff and Lydia
chose their favorite bible verses as their etchings.  How many engineers does it take to tie a tie…??? lol  😉 Continue reading “Jeff + Lydia { Finnish American Heritage Center }”
