Door County Intimate Wedding
What a beautiful Door County Intimate Wedding this was. Captured in the heart of Autumn, in Ephraim Door County, Michael and Heather said their “I Do’s” before their parents and the Brides Sister. Their event took place on a gorgeous sunny day at the Hillside Inn last fall. The bride began getting ready with her hair and make up in one of the cottages below the main building. She and her sister then headed up into the Hillside to a room right next to where Michael and his parents were getting ready. Both the Michael and Heather had special gifts for their parents. I was able to slip back and forth quite easily to capture all the goings on in each room~ quite convenient. The time had come, Heather made her way down the stairway to meet her father on the hillside lawn. They then made their way to the groom and the remaining family. The Mother of the Bride read the Velveteen Rabbit and the Mother of the Groom shared some very special words with the couple as well. Tears were shed by all, including me!
After The “I Do’s”
They shared their personal vows with one another and then continued on with a whiskey mixing ceremony. That was a fun first for me! The brides sister announced their marriage, they had their first kiss as Husband and Wife and with that the bells chimed from the church behind the Hillside, a surprise gift from the groom. We made our way down to the bay for a few before heading back up for cake and champagne. Backdown we went to the gazebo just below for the first dances. While I set up the Newlyweds tossed around a football. We then headed into Peninsula State Park for some portraits. We finished our time together with some more portraits at Anderson Dock and finally in front of Wilsons. It is amazing what can all be accomplished in 4 hours. Yes this was a 4 hour Intimate Wedding and everything about it was stunning!
Wedding was captured at: The Hillside Inn, Ephraim Wisconsin
