Sleeping Bear Dunes Elopement

Sleeping Bear Dunes Elopement on Lake Michigan.

Jesse and Tephani’s Sleeping Bear Dunes elopement was one for the books.  They rented the absolute most perfect Air BnB that I’ve seen in a long time. They had their closest friends and family with them the whole time and it was amazing. It was fun to see how everyone interacted together, and to see just how much all of these people loved Jesse and Tephani. Everyone was there to have a good time and celebrate the love these two amazing people shared.

Not only did Jesse and Tephani decide to get partially ready together, that is, Tephani did Jesse’s hair (which was amazing!), they opted to do a first look in the woods just outside the cabin. It was seriously the sweetest, most intimate moment for these two. The look in Jesse’s eyes when he turned around and saw Tephani, it almost brought me and my second to tears. I didn’t know them very well before their wedding day, but dang. Tephani and Jesse are two of the most easy-going, sweetest, genuine couples I’ve met in a long time. All they wanted to do was make my job easier. And to make everyone else comfortable. On their elopement day, they were so outwardly focused. It was an amazing thing to see.

A few hours later, they tied the knot…literally…on a beach on Lake Michigan. Seeing everyone come together and surround them as they said their vows and I Do’s, it was just so incredibly beautiful. Tephani and Jesse are so loved, and it’s hard not to see why. They’re amazing people, and an amazing couple.
