Kristen & Marvin Elope at Sleeping Bear Dunes

We met in a tavern on a rainy day in Port Huron and discussed their wedding in a Northern Michigan vineyard. A phone call one week later with Kristen telling me she is about to drop a bomb on me.

An elopement at Sleeping Bear Dunes, in a month.

A dream come true.

They eloped on the dunes overlooking Lake Michigan in front of their daughter and a select few. It was the end of October and the sun popped out the moment they kissed at the end of their ceremony. Their reception was a warm cocoon full of pretty flowers, tasty food, a lot of laughter and the most warming light. It was everything.
