Brittany and Matt | Michillinda Lodge Wedding Photography

Gorgeous summer lakeside wedding! It was my first time at the Michillinda Lodge and it is a beautiful location for wedding photography! I loved being right on Lake Michigan, as did all the guests. There were many lovely spots for portraits all in walking distance of all the event areas. We even sneaked down the road to the beach to grab a few extra portraits of the Bride and Groom. Truly a hidden gem! Here is a collection of my favorite moments and portraits from their day!


Best groom revel face! He was so thrilled to see his beautiful bride walking down the aisle. It was such a sweet moment! 2016-12-20_00062016-12-20_00072016-12-20_00082016-12-20_00092016-12-20_00102016-12-20_00112016-12-20_00122016-12-20_00132016-12-20_00142016-12-20_00152016-12-20_00162016-12-20_00172016-12-20_00182016-12-20_00192016-12-20_00202016-12-20_0021

When there is a sunset and your beach side you will have to stop what your doing to capture it. 🙂2016-12-20_00332016-12-20_00342016-12-20_00352016-12-20_00362016-12-20_0037
