On a beautiful, sun filled day in August, Nikki and Tyler made it official. The bold color palette of purples, reds, and oranges contrasted beautifully with the romantic whimsy of Lake Michigan and Old Mission Peninsula. Melissa from Lux Light Photography captured and day and the details of this radiant summer wedding!
From Melissa at Lux Light Photography: Nikki and Tyler were beyond excited to finally become husband and wife, and this anticipation of their beautiful DIY-inspired wedding, was apparent in every moment and look shared between this couple throughout the day. Getting ready in Nikki’s childhood home in Elk Rapids, it was an easy jaunt downtown to the shores of Lake Michigan, to share in their First Look. This was truly, one of the best moments of the day, as Tyler turned around and immediately broke into smiles and pure joy upon seeing Nikki walk down the bridge towards him, hands outstretched for her future husband. The romance and joy was bubbling, as their adorable dog Daisy joined in the moment as well.
It was then on to their gorgeous ceremony location to meet up with their bridal party at the Jolly Pumpkin. Last minute preparations were made as the guests arrived, marveling at the homemade decor and aisle adornments, all made by Nikki. As Nikki and Tyler finally met at the end of the aisle, their vows exchanged, they became husband and wife amongst cheers (and bubbles) from their wedding guests!
While their guests were able to enjoy the homemade games and appetizers set out by the Mission Table, Nikki and Tyler, along with their wedding party, were able to explore the beautiful vineyards and architecture of the area. Then it was on to their reception, where lively music provided by DJ Mikey, met them at their entrance. The rest of the night was filled with dancing, a romantic fire on the porch outside, and delicious catering by Mission Table. It was an unforgettable wedding, made perfect by a beautiful couple in northern Michigan.
