Renee and Matt’s Intimate Beach Wedding {Spring Lake Michigan Wedding Photography}

When I arrived in Spring Lake to photography Renee and Matt’s beautiful Lake Michigan wedding, their tight-knit group of friends and family were already gathered outside, on the deck of Matt’s parent’s lovely beach-side home, sipping on wine and enjoying what a gorgeous fall day it was. The flower girl and ring bearer were running through the dune grass with huge smiles on their faces, and Renee was putting the finishing touches on her ensemble in the side bedroom, while other family members prepared food in the kitchen.

I reflected to myself on how much I love the laid-back approach of┬ásmall weddings, and how relaxed everyone seemed. A violinist and guitarist tuned their strings by the water while the last finishing touches were made, and every moment of the ceremony was sweet and succinct. Afterward, family members and friends rejoiced together from the edges of the water to the deck of the house, toasting and reflecting on the couple’s big moment. It was such a dream! I was so honored to have been a part of things and the one to capture the beauty of the day.
