R & S | Hotel Walloon Wedding | Northern Michigan Photography

So this is a first for me. I second shoot my fair share of weddings a year, to fill my open Saturdays, but I‚Äôve never blogged one. However the moment I saw this location I knew I was going to want to post some of this gorgeous Hotel Walloon wedding. Lucky for me the main shooter was the amazingly cool Kristen Finn and she gave me the go ahead to share some with you. ūüôā If you are looking for a northern Michigan wedding location check out this lovely hotel that blends modern elegance¬†and vintage charm so beautifully. ¬†Every inch of this place is wonderfully decorated and every detail has been accounted for. The staff made sure the event ran perfectly and the couple, their friends and family all had a wonderful time dancing the night away lakeside. ¬†Speaking of the lake view, the sunset, oh my. I hope I get the chance to shoot here many more times! For now here are some I took assisting the lovely Kristen for this gorgeous couples June wedding.
