Joel + Annah // Muskegon Lake Nautical Wedding
Along the shores of Muskegon Lake, walking distance from where the bride grew up, Joel and Annah exchanged handwritten vows underneath a willow tree as sailboats passed by. We took photos in places that meant something to Annah — trails she hiked as a teenager — and the Hexagon building where her great-grandfather, Herbert Edward Backstrom Jr., was a charter member of the Muskegon Yacht Club. The evening ended up at Shoreline Inn Conference Center with local ice cream instead of cake. HEAVEN.
