Becky and Grae tied the knot on a lovely August day in Frankfort. Their beach ceremony featured bare feet and bold yellow sunflowers. Then it was off to the Elberta Lifesaving Station for a reception filled with boardgames, giant Jenga, mad libs, and, of course, dancing the night away under the stars.
From Kendra Stanley-Mills: Grae grew up on the West Coast and Becky grew up on the East Coast but they both ended up in Chicago to attend college. Their first date was over coffee and the dates never stopped. The couple chose to get married in the Northern Michigan town where Becky spent her summers since she was six years old. She wore a gown made by her great-grandmother. It was the same dress that her mother wore and her grandmother wore before that. The bridal party (seriously, the most fun bunch I’ve ever had the chance to photograph) all gathered at the family cottage to get ready and then it was moment after moment until the sun set over Betsie Lake.
