It’s been years since I’ve seen Julie & Geoff. We worked together in Marquette and briefly hung out when they were living in Chicago. So when they reached out about needing a second shooter for a Traverse City wedding I happily jumped on board. I arrived at the beautiful Peninsula Room and was greeted with a warm, strong wind off of the lake. The bride Julie and the groom Evan were finishing up getting ready inside before they had their first look outdoors. Their nerves and excitement could easily be seen from the images, it was a beautiful moment to capture. Afterwards, the happy couple took some time to trade letters and soak in the day that was happening.
On the front lawn, the final touches were being set up. Although it was quite windy the couple embraced it and move forward with their outdoor ceremony. The way the bride and bridesmaid’s dresses moved with the wind was mesmerizing. Julia and Evan exchanged their vows and rings before they pronounced husband and wife.
Immediately afterwards the newlyweds walked out to the gorgeous beach in front of the property. It was a way for them to take in all that just happened and enjoy the sunshine that was shining down. Next, it was off to the reception inside the Peninsula Room. The clean decor of blue and green was the perfect look for the hall.
They ate, drank, danced, and enjoyed being married. Right before we took off we snuck Julie & Evan off for a few last pictures along the shores of Lake Michigan as the sun was setting. It was the perfect ending to an incredible day. Thanks again to Geoff & Julie for letting me photography with them. Make sure to go follow their Two 9 Two Facebook fan page to see more. Enjoy!
