Chic and Romantic Summer Love
A Lexington, MI Beach Wedding
It’s mid June in Lexington, Michigan. Lake Huron is bright blue, the sun is out, and capturing romantic moments is in full swing!
If I had to describe this wedding in 3 words it would be laid back, romantic, and chic. Honestly, isn’t that just the perfect combination, for the wedding party and us as photographers? No stress, celebrating love, and you look fabulous doing it. Sign me up!
What was extra special about this wedding for us at Raelani Stockwell Photography was that this was the 2nd of 3 weddings we’ve done with this family! Showing up just felt like hanging out with old friends again. Seeing familiar faces, celebrating another marriage with this family, and partying with the same people again and again just brought a vibe to the whole day that made it feel effortless and special. It was more like walking through the day, camera in hand, than it was working. Honestly, a lot of our days feel like that though, and we’re so thankful we just “click” with our bride and grooms!
Details in place, first looks done, and it was time to walk down the grassy aisle at the Sanilac County State Park.
Vows were exchanged at the beach, but the new Mr. and Mrs. were captured for their portraits where more of the East Coast sunshine could be seen shining through the woods. Again… look at these two and how laid back yet romantic their love feels.
The reception had that Summer, rustic chic mood that carried us through the night, that we just can’t get enough of, because let’s face it, here in Michigan, in Sanilac County, we’re a lil country, and we like it that way.
A totally unique staple to their wedding was the “Bartender Drink Off” in place of the dollar dance! These two bartenders couldn’t have picked a more fitting, fun way to earn a few more bucks and have a little competitive fun!!
And you know we weren’t sneaking off without some “sunset” shots of Morgan dancing the night away on the shoreline, because, well, it’s totally dreamy.
