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.

Wade and Christin kept their day low key and casual by seeing each other before the wedding.  Such a cute first look.   We immediately followed up with some portraits.

Tyler and Maia { Keweenaw Michigan wedding

Tyler and Maia were married last Sunday in the gorgeous Keweenaw Peninsula at a rustic church surrounded by their family and friends.   Their reception was held at the beautifully restored Eagle River Lighthouse in Eagle River, Michigan.   Maia’s parents catered the delicious dinner and did most of the prep themselves.    The day started with the girls getting ready in the bright and sunny lighthouse.

Travis and Morgan { Hancock Farm wedding

Travis and Morgan were married on a hot summer day in the Copper Country.   With an outdoor wedding and reception you never know what you will get in the U.P.   It was gorgeous but hot!   They both got ready at a friends house on the shores of Lake Superior.   It was beautiful setting for this casual day with a great couple.

The attention to detail at Travis and Morgan’s wedding is amazing.   They enlisted the help of family and friends for this beautiful DIY rustic wedding.

Patrick & Katie // Munising outdoor wedding

Patrick and Katie were married on the most
beautiful day on the water in Munising.   I was so excited when
I arrived at the Beach Inn Motel and saw their
ceremony and reception site.  Reserving the motel was
ideal for them as majority of their guests traveled to be at their
upper peninsula destination wedding 🙂

The site was decorated so beautifully and the
tented reception was awesome!
