Lake Michigan Wedding | Part 2

Here’s part 2 of Colleen and Brian’s fabulous Lake Michigan wedding.  I had the pleasure of second shooting for my friend J.C. Carley.  This was full of personal touches and tons of fun! These two sure do know how to have a good time!  For a destination wedding they really did show their guests a good time!

Here’s is Colleen & Brian’s amazing tent!

    Wow Chelsea! I too am in love with the tent! This wedding looks like it was so much fun! I love Lake Michigan and the whole vibe of this wedding. Looks like so much fun! The couple is gorgeous and I really like what she did with the dress! What a unique idea and she’ll be able to wear her wedding dress again and again! Great job on the photos, you did an amazing job.

    was the name of the beach ever published?

  • Chelsea ElizabethNovember 20, 2014 - 10:23 pm

    No, it was so long ago I can’t remember the name of the beach. We stayed at the Blue Chip Casino in Indiana though and it was about 10 minutes away. Hope that helps!

    Can you contact couple and find out what beach and tent company please!

  • Chelsea ElizabethMarch 27, 2017 - 11:19 pm

    I don’t know how to contact them. This was so long ago. The beach was on Lake Michigan by the casino in Indiana. Hope that helps!
