Real Weddings :: Olivia & Zach’s Leelanau Love

Twirling.  That’s what comes to mind every time I think back to Olivia and Zach’s beautiful wedding day.  I think of Olivia’s sweet spirit and beautiful nuptials on the shores of Lake Michigan.  I reminince about the hot summer sun warming the weathered board walk that lead to a romantic beach location.  I can still see the sunlight dancing across the gentle waves and the chiffon blowing in the breeze – a breeze that I was so thankful for on that hot July day.

But most of all, I picture Olivia twirling between the vines in the most perfect blush dress, fit for a princess.  Once again, I love Northern Michigan weddings because you really can have it all from the sun and the sand, to the breezes that accompany the waves on the shore, the woodland settings and the sprawling vineyards.  It all adds up to the most perfect place to say “I do.”
