You know when everything alines just perfectly to create magic? That is the best way to describe this amazing Sleeping Bear Dunes wedding near Traverse City. When first meeting Justin & Amanda it was easy to see the love between these two high school sweethearts. They joyfully strolled along the Lake Michigan, taking in the warm sunshine. Amanda stunned in a designer dress by Jillian Fellers Bridal. The flow of the dress as the wind collected in the fabric was mesmerizing to watch. Amanda had her soft curls and glowing make up done by Memorable Occasions. Justin looked dapper in a suit rented from Natalie’s Bridal & Tuxedo in Traverse City.
Nearby the team from Sincerely Ginger Weddings put together the beautiful decor and styled the details. Rachel, the owner of SGW, has a knack and eye for the details. The table had gorgeous gems/crystals from Korner Gem and stunning floral by the amazing Stems & Sprigs. The cheese platter that was indulged in later was from The Cheese Lady and wine from Chateau Chantal was sipped on as they enjoyed the incredible views. It was lovely to see how well the invitation suite from Sable & Gray Paper Co and the delicious cake from Simply Sweet by Jessica worked into the style/decor of the wedding.
Justin & Amanda spent most of their time along side the water, but as the sun began to set they had an idea. They changed into casual clothing and gathered their paddle boards. The sun was setting fast as they paddle out into Lake Michigan. It truly is unreal how strikingly beautiful those images are, especially as the paddled close enough to give each other a big kiss. It was truly the most incredible day, filled with magic. We loved being able to capture their love along the lake shore. Enjoy!
