We watched the weather forecast for Julie and Ed’s wedding closely leading up to their big day. The forecast was pretty solid–rain. Julie was worried and we were worried too. Of course we always have a back up plan for situations like these, but it’s those gorgeous outdoor locations we all have our hearts set on. Especially for a Mackinac Island wedding! As we drove north, Ken kept checking the hourly forecast. There was a glimmer of hope as our scheduled coverage for photos showed the chance of rain dropping from 80% to a 10% chance. We had our fingers crossed!!!
As we arrived to meet with Julie and Ed at the Sunset Condos they were putting on their finishing touches before their first look. It was so sweet the way Ed’s face lit up when he saw his bride for the first time. From there, we jumped on the carriage and rode to Little Stone Church where they would become husband and wife. After making it official we walked a few blocks to Goodfellow’s Wine Cellar for their reception. With the rain still holding off we took a little walk for some more portrait time. So glad we did! Mackinac Island has so much charm and it complimented Julie and Ed’s radiating love perfectly. As we said goodbye and walked across the street to leave it started to sprinkle and then proceeded to downpour! We couldn’t believe it!
Here’s a look at their day…
Thank you Julie and Ed for choosing us to capture your beautiful wedding day, we wish you two much love and happiness!
