Jim & Lyndsay (Marquette, MI Wedding)
I have been looking forward to this wedding for what feels like forever!! Lyndsay and Jim booked me for their Marquette wedding early last year and I was able to meet them at Kal & Nicole's wedding in October. I LOVED spending my Saturday with these two and their fun bridal party and having a chance to catch up with a past Natalie Carolyn bride!
Jim and Lyndsay met a few years ago in Marquette while she was walking her dog Shadow and the 2 (well actually 3 😉) fell in love in the beautiful lakeside town. They have since moved to the sunny state of Florida but were excited to come back to Michigan and share this special place with their family.
One thing I've realized in my years of wedding photography is how much of a "destination" Marquette is for couples. Many of my couples aren't originally from the area but fell in love there or spent time there as a couple and it holds a special place in their heart AND in their relationship. I won't complain, I couldn't agree more. Although Marquette is the largest city in Upper Michigan it is RIGHT on the shores of lake superior making it a perfect place for adventures types and "city" seekers alike! (Of course "city" is quite relative in this scenario but we are talking about the UP! ha).
Lyndsay knows the way to my heart! During portraits she knew that the LIGHTING was the most important thing and not necessarily the location which means they didn't flinch when I put them on a path next to grass covered in bird poop! Ick!! No worries though, no dresses or shoes were ruined in the making of the photos, I was the only one who got dangerously close! 😉 Anything for the photo right?
Enjoy a little peek (well not so little because I have too many favorites) of their beautiful wedding day!
Lyndsay and Jim opted to see each other before the ceremony which left us with plenty of time to do portraits at multiple locations! My favorite kind of timeline!
The famous Shadow! He had a special place in the wedding party and even earned a spot on the cake topper! Wait until you see the reception images! :)
I love this! What a fun bunch of ladies!
The groom and his best man are identical twins. The groomsmen thought it was pretty comical when I realized that during the portraits and had to do a double take! haha!
You guys look amazing!!
On our way to the ceremony, the party bus stopped here and they asked if we had time for a few more bride and groom portraits and if I minded. There is ALWAYS time for more bride and groom photos if you ask me! :)
Lyndsay and her dad have such a special relationship. Just wait until you see the father daughter dance photos, not a dry eye in the house! 💕
Instead of cake, they had a pie bar. Family members contributed their specialities to share with everyone. The apple piece at had was perfection! I LOVE the idea this, why not do pie if you aren’t a cake person!?
There he is! I told you he’s important! :)
I stumbled upon this craziness at the reception. Three sets of doubles!! I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me! I asked them the relations and then insisted on a photo. The Groom with his twin brother, the girls are their twin cousins and the darling babies are one of the girls babies! How cool is that?! :)
This one isn’t perfect as I had a guest quickly snap it for me. Perfect or not I LOVE this photo! Past bride and current bride. Ladies, THANK YOU so much for letting me do this amazing job and sharing your beautiful friends with me! Its a job I don’t take lightly!
