"Hey, it's supposed to rain on Friday, any chance you want to move your elopement to Thursday night instead?"
"Sure! No problem!"
That was basically the email exchange between myself and Justine and Garett the week of their elopement planed for Laketown Beach near Holland, MI. They were the MOST laid back I have ever seen when it came to eloping and it was an absolute dream to work with them from start to finish. Justine and Garett simply wanted to be married with some cool pictures and a great story--they wanted to ensure Justine's daughter Lily and their family dog could be part of it, and they wanted it to be small and intimate with just their parents in attendance. Check, check, check, and check--we accomplished that. Eloping on a beautiful June evening overlooking Lake Michigan and then running full speed down a dune to the shore is sort of a dream come true--I can't say enough about this couple and this family except that I truly, honestly and passionately believe in their love and their story.
Thank you so much, Justine, Garrett and Lily--you were all such a joy. We wish you all the best, good cider, beautiful flower crowns and amazing rescue pups.
