fall beach wedding on lake michigan | markit photographyMarrying your childhood sweetheart while barefoot on the beach…don’t so many of us fantasize about doing that? Well, Eva & James met in 4th grade. Yep, I said FOURTH. James crushed on Eva for a long time and the two started dating in high school. As one half of a high school sweetheart couple myself, I love these stories. This wedding was relaxed, laid-back, and fun, just like the couple themselves. I love that everyone was barefoot and am just a bit obsessed with Eva’s queen anne’s lace bouquet.

The cottage has been a very special place to us as a couple since high school. We would go up any weekend we could in the summers and even winters. We have spent countless hours swimming in Lake Michigan, boating, running/walking along the beach, and having fires on the beach at night with friends. James proposed on the beach there, so with that big memory and so many others that took place there, we decided we couldn’t get married anywhere else. With the ceremony right on the beach in front of the cottage and the reception in the backyard – the location was totally us.

The color palette of this wedding is perfect for late summer/early fall and the laid back vibe and breezy J.Crew bridesmaids dresses were a great compliment to this beach ceremony.  And don’t you LOVE that bouquet!?  Congrats to Eva & James!
