Geoff + Ellen

West Olive, Michigan

I’m beginning to see a trend. It seems as though a lot of my couples live elsewhere but are drawn back to Lake Michigan to get married. Ellen and Geoff reside in New York City where Geoff works for Google and Ellen for Simon & Schuster but Ellen grew up in Spring Lake. “Inviting my East Coast friends to the beach” was one of Ellen’s priorities for her wedding and sentimentality is one of mine so I knew I’d love this day. Add in her mother’s antique glass bottle collection, hand-lettered invitation and program by the bride herself, some local Michigan blueberry syrup and Geoff’s computer cufflinks and, well, I was in visual heaven all day long. Not to mention, these two have an energy, respect and love for one another that’s pretty obvious.
