Union Pier, Michigan is absolutely amazing. Having lived in Michigan since the middle of fifth grade, I would consider myself well-versed in the Michigan "culture" and especially in the lakeshore of Lake Michigan. But, I had never been to Union Pier. I was thrilled to get in contact with Justin and Britt who planned a relaxed, fun, bohemian beach wedding on the shores of Lake Michigan.
I came down on the night before the wedding and stayed at the Lakeshore Inn (*it was the sweetest inn I think I've ever stayed at*). Britt and Justin were celebrating their rehearsal with friends and family at the Firefly Inn just down the road where they had basically rented out the entire place. The gingham decor and the personalities of the people made the day so festive! And WHO could resist gourmet pizza from the vintage food truck??? Amazing.
So the ceremony-- well, you just never know with Michigan. We could see the clouds far out across the lake to south. The wind shifted and up those rain clouds came- right in the middle of the ceremony! Britt and Justin raced back to the Firefly reception tent and after a period of drying time, we resumed their nuptials under the tent.
