Lakeside Wedding at Private Residence

Alex & Dan | Whitehall, MI

These photos. They mean so much to me. I had been so excited for this day since I met with Alex, her sister, and her mom, over coffee months before, and even more so after I finally got to meet Dan and see the two of them together at their engagement shoot in Muskegon State Park.

A wedding on Duck Lake in the backyard of the home where Alex grew up; a perfect September day.  I am a sucker for sentimental wedding locations, beautiful flowing mismatched dresses, and TONS of greenery like I think most are, but what made this day so special was the love for these two that I felt literally pouring out of EVERYONE that surrounded them. Friends and family came from all over the country to be a part of this celebration. I mean their bridal party was the biggest I have ever seen and all of them were so pumped for Alex & Dan.

There was no joke a rush to the dance floor when the DJ announced it was finally open, and that's my kind of party. The day was nothing short of beautiful, and at the end I felt so welcomed by everyone present, not just the bride & groom. Also, everyone should have HopCat's crack fries at their wedding! ;)
