Darrah and Chris’s wedding was held at the Elberta Life Saving Station in Frankfort, Michigan. The venue was located by the Betsie Lake w(hich flows into Lake Michigan) with a beautiful backdrop of pure Michigan trees at its best. Their wedding was held in October and it was a beautiful sunny day (although quite cold and windy). I met up with the bridal party at The Hotel Frankfort and got some getting ready shots.
I loved Darrah how Darrah wore a simple wedding dress with a long veil – she was breathtakingly beautiful:

I love how unique this venue was. It allowed guests to walk along the lake and enjoy a beautiful view:
The main color theme for their wedding was olive green. Each guests got to take home some home-made pickles!

For bridal portraits, we headed to the Point Betsie Lighthouse. We didn’t expect it to be so cold and windy but we managed to get a few pictures in:
I love it when the guys wear funky socks. If you know me, I have a thing for patterned socks!

I’m so glad I had the opportunity to photograph Darrah and Chris’s wedding. Believe it or not, I have never been to northern Michigan during fall time so I didn’t realize how beautiful the view was. I am definitely going to try to visit northern Michigan more going forward!
