Elope on Lake Michigan – Kelsey and Tyler’s Adventure 

Like most couples planning to have a 2020 wedding, Tyler and Kelsey had to change their plans. This is wedding 2 out of 3 for them. They got all the official stuff out of the way with a courthouse wedding back home. Kelsey and Tyler then planned for a later date, an intimate ceremony at their favorite place to camp, Lake Michigan at Manistee Campgrounds. It was here that they felt was more significant to them and their relationship. They both love nature and had camped here every year they’d been together. It was the perfect place for their ceremony, on a beach dune overlooking Lake Michigan.

Kelsey and Tyler read their vows and then letters from family and friends back home with only their pup, Indy and I in attendance. I couldn’t have had a more incredible time with the two of them while they read the most heartfelt letters full of love, advice, funny stories, and support. It was a beautiful day for this intimate elopement on Lake Michigan. Thankfully, it was warm enough for a post ceremony swim in this Great Lake too. I had am amazing time photographing Tyler and Kelsey’s Manistee elopement, but I can’t wait for their postponed “traditional” wedding next year. 💕
