Winter Elopement / Lake Michigan

Anytime a couple reaches out to us and expresses interest in a winter elopement,  we are immediately hooked. If there is one thing I have learned in my years of professional elopement planning, it’s that winter elopements are incredibly underrated. Whether your backdrop is a snowy mountain, a frozen lake or wooded forest with snowcapped trees, you’re guaranteed to have stunning photos.

Joshua & Jennifer chose a semi frozen lake for their winter elopement backdrop and boy was it a memorable and magical day. It was a brisk 26 degrees with absolutely crazy winds but these native Michiganders didn’t even seem to notice the below freezing temperatures, the wind on the other hand was impossible to miss.

To date, Joshua & Jennifer have been one of the most fun, quirky and in love couples I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They also happen to be huge Game of Thrones fans, so it was only appropriate that the ceremony began with yours truly humming a few notes of the shows theme song. There is not a lot I won’t do for my clients. They then took turns exchanging beautiful and deeply personal handwritten vows to one another. By the time they were finished, there wasn’t a dry eye left.
