this wedding day was so intensely beautiful that i stayed up almost the entire night editing it. prepping a sneak peek for the day after turned into needing to look at every single photograph, and before i knew it, it was almost time for the sun to come up! hilary + chase hosted a beautiful beach front wedding on deer lake in northern michigan. for those of you who don’t know, northern michigan is the most beautiful landscape in all of the midwest, and i’d even argue in the entire country but i am ridiculously biased with michigan pride that consumes my soul.
this was certainly one of the hottest days we’ve had all summer, but we had the breeze from the lake, cold beverages in our hands + love buzzing all around us. hilary + chase spoiled their guests with a beautiful setting, a butterfly release that resulted in some good belly laughs, good eats + good tunes, the tiniest cupcakes i couldn’t stop photographing, a serenading by bagpipe to honor the brides scottish heritage, and one of those wicked michigan sunsets to wrap it all up.
love is so damn good, so. damn. good.
