Hey ladies and gents! Can you believe that we’re already in the middle of summer? Time flies by so fast! Of course, there’s no better way to celebrate your wedding this season than a beach themed styled shoot. When it comes to planning your perfect bridal look, the step after you’ve found your dream dress and makeup is finding the perfect location to match! What we have for you today is the picture-perfect inspiration. This event was to show future brides that a traditional wedding isn’t for everyone, and there are other options to consider. Brides love to feel on top of the world on their wedding day and that’s what one of the big appeals that Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore offers! From the scenic view to the dress from Spring Sweet, the details are a flowing masterpiece that allows for movement and fun on a wedding day for a vibrant bride. All these stylized items are made to ensure an intimate feel for every couple who loves to turn their elopement into a genuine time spent enjoying the view of Lake Michigan.

Take this Advice
A wedding doesn’t have to be this big, huge affair. It needs to be about what works best for the two of you and occasionally that means that it involves just the two of you. As you continue to plan and you feel as though you can’t find anything different, taking a look at places like Northern Michigan can truly offer you many unique experiences. Add in a bit of fun! Your hair doesn’t need to be perfect, your dress can have some flow to it, and at the end of the day, it’s about you two getting married instead of everyone else’s expectations! ~ Stephanie Parshall/Photographer
From the Photographer
Hello! I’m Stephanie Parshall, a Wedding Photographer based in Michigan and I travel EVERYWHERE my couples ask me to! From a Snowed-Filled Winter Wedding to the mountains of North Carolina to the oceans of the Pacific and everywhere in between! When it comes to ensuring that every detail of your day is captured, it actually starts well before your wedding day! My unique client experience is made with you in mind because I’ve gotten to know and understand what all of my past couples have gone through! It all involves getting to know you on a personal level and helping you through the whole process. I teach you how to feel confident in front of the camera and by knowing you personally, your wedding day feels more like a reunion of friends than a stuck up formal business transaction. I primarily shoot Weddings & Eengagements but do also photograph Proposals and Bridal Shoots as well! My pricing starts at $3,200 for 2 photographers and 8 hours of day of coverage
