We arrived at Kate & Theresa’s beautiful Michigan same sex wedding this summer ready to capture the day. The forecast called for rain, but it held off for their outdoor ceremony overlooking Lake Superior. Presque Isle is one of the most popular places to get married in Marquette. It is beautiful in every direction you look; woods, water, and even the occasionally deer. Guest gathered to watch the lovely ceremony of Kate & Theresa. We loved their gorgeous dresses they wore that perfectly suited each one of them and fit the style of the wedding too. The wind and waves softly hummed in the background as the newlyweds said i do.
Afterwards the happy couple and their fun bridal party made their way to black rocks. An approaching storm could be seen in the background. It’s ominous clouds and lighting was truly amazing. The blue clouds were meant to be–they looked incredible with the colors of Kate, Theresa, and their bridal party. The bridal party finished up with pictures early and made their way to the reception. Kate & Theresa stayed behind for a little bit for photos and just to enjoy the quiet moment. Those times are always our favorite part of the day.
Arriving at the reception their friends and family cheered. Drinks were raised, dinner was eaten, and the clouds finally bursted open to let the rain come down. It was a beautiful to listen to the joy of guest talking mixed with the rhythm of the rain. After their first dance the rain let up though and allowed us to capture a few final pictures before we were done for the day. The final image really sums up the beauty of the day. Congrats again Kate & Theresa on your wedding. It truly was the best day ever. Enjoy!
This is beautiful! It needs to be on a canvas and hung up as art.
Oh my goodness we were in LOVE with their UP themed cake! Seriously so fantastic.
