This post is crazy long, but I couldn’t help myself. These two threw an epic wedding party on the shores of Lake Charlevoix. Complete with a gorgeous bride and groom, beachside venue, spot-on DJing, wild dancing, and one of the most fun and hospitable families I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not to mention the movie-worthy maid of honor speech that left everyone in tears, myself included. I stayed until the very end and drove home into the warm July night, completely exhausted but oh so inspired. It’s hard to beat a summer wedding in northern Michigan. Especially when Kristen and Harold are hosting it.
