Our first beach wedding on the year was on Friday and the weather couldn't have been more ideal. Tara & I made our way to South Haven to set up the ceremony site in the early afternoon. We met the couple at the Inn before heading down to the beach to set up their chosen Lake Michigan site. We ran into Julie as she was making her way out the door - she did a fabulous job with the entire wedding party! The women looked amazing. It was absolutely a beautiful day - sunny with a light breeze, but not too warm.

Tara & I set up the ceremony site and it was gorgeous. We had colorful tubs of refreshments at the top of the stairs, along with the wedding programs attached to fans for guests to grab on their way down to the beach. Bamboo mats encouraged guests to kick off their shoes when they reached the sand, and white chairs, hooks with white rose pomanders with black & white ribbon blowing in the breeze greeted guests to the ceremony site.

The ceremony was short & sweet and after Lindsey & Travis were married, Amy Carroll got a great shot of the whole group of guests, wedding party & newlyweds before doing wedding party photos on the beach. Guests began arriving at the reception site via David, the fabulous limo driver from Dream Limousine. Appetizers & cocktails were enjoyed for an hour before the wedding party arrived and dinner was served.

Lindsey designed the entire reception decor herself and I loved it - completely up my alley! She had a great mix of black & white linens, an extensive collection of ornate black & white candles, plus various vases of white peonies and daisies on each table. Each place setting had a fabulous menu and place card, and the whole design came together quite splendidly!

It was a great night and we were so happy to be a part of their day. Congrats to Lindsey & Travis! I look forward to posting their photos as soon as Amy Carroll shares them on her blog.
