Sleeping Bear Dunes | Elopement Planning
The Perfect Way To Say “I Do” | Elope at Sleeping Bear Dunes
An Elopement at Sleeping Bear Dunes is a beautiful way to get married without the pressure involved in planning a big wedding.
Imagine your day of unity being solely about the love you and your honey share, instead of being filled with the emotional, and financial stress of a traditional wedding.
More and more couples are considering the non-traditional adventures and simply choosing a beautiful location, exchanging vows in private, and making commitments to each other without feeling the need to please a large group of attendees. I fully support this growing defiance of formality and traditions.
Stunning Landscape Views | Sleeping Bear Dunes
The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes National Park is a great location in Michigan to get eloped for stunning landscape views, beautiful sunsets, secluded locations, with plenty of adventure in your day too. Katie and Bryan got ready together in their rental condo in Glen Arbor. When I arrived to start shooting, they were both calm but ready to embark on their adventure together. Then we headed off for their Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes elopement at Pyramid Point.
Katie and Bryan ran around the dunes, laughter and play filling the day until they decided on the perfect spot for a ceremony at sunset. Their chosen location was a sandy cliff, overlooking Lake Michigan.
The adventurous couple shared vows and said “I do,” with only 2 of their closest friends in attendance – One to officiate and one as witness. This was actually the first wedding I signed as a second witness for their marriage. Leaving their shoot, I was filled with so much happiness that I carried their energy with me to sleep and was reinvigorated with that energy when I sat down to edit the photos from their special day.
A Dream Come True | Sleeping Bear Dunes Elopement
Mary and Owen were a dream to photograph. The affection they share for each other shows in their loving energy. We met at one of my favorite, lesser known spots in Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes for our adventure. The only expectation they had from me was at least one “ant shot” focusing on the landscape instead of them. I was ecstatic to share the photos from their special day.
