Fall Wedding in Upper Michigan, Northern Michigan
Not too often do I have couples who meet on EHarmony and get married. This destination Wedding in Northern Michigan, above the bridge, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan was a match by this online dating service. They booked everything online and rented cabins on Brevort Lake in Upper Michigan. The intimate ceremony included about 20 people total.
The Wedding ceremony was a skit put on by the bride and groom. Music was played by two close friends on the guitar and violin. The bride started out in the upstairs room of the house and the groom on the deck. The bride walked down the stairs and into the living room where the groom was building a fire. There were two readings that were read by siblings of the bride and groom. The bride and groom mixed a ceremonial drink which included three alcohols, juice, and lemon. It was a double ring ceremony with personally written vows. The Reverand read this story about how the couple may have met if not for EHarmony. It was based in the caveman era. At the end of the ceremony the Reverand announced the couple and said to the groom, “You may now take your bride back to the cave.” The bride and groom proceeded to a room adjacent for a short time. Everyone was looking around and laughing, not sure what to do.
This is one of the most unique ceremonies that I have photographed. I asked the bride where she came up with the ideas and she said that most of them were from www.Offbeatbride.com.
Here are a couple more images then a slideshow of a selection of images from the Wedding day.
