I have been putting off writing about Lauren & Jake’s intimate winter wedding. It’s sounds bad when I actually type that out, but I’ve only been putting it off because I don’t know how to truly express in words how wonderful they are and how gorgeous their wedding was.
Leading up to their wedding we really got to know Lauren & Jake; their love of “nerdy” tv, how close their family is to them, and how Jake purposed to Lauren. We kept this all in mind when photographing their wedding, we even brought along some extra Legos for their ring shot (Jake purposed with a Lego ring box). Their wedding was wonderfully intimate, it wasn’t about everything/everyone–it was about the two of them, ridiculously in love and getting married. They selected the historic Landmark Inn in the heart of Marquette, MI to get ready at and have all of their celebrations at. They married in the Sky Room with views of a snow covered Lake Superior in view from the windows. Afterwards, the new Mr. & Mrs. Gaecke joined us near the old ore dock for what are now some of my new favorite photos. They braved the cold, windy day–but looked great in the process. Once back near the hotel we crossed their street for a few photos in front of the incredible architecture of the Peter White Public Library and then it was onto their delicious dinner and celebrations.
Rather than try to describe how wonderful it all was I’d rather just show off their wedding photographs . HUGE congrats again to Mr. & Mrs. Gaecke. I couldn’t be more honored to share in your special day with you two.
