Romantic beach wedding of nice young couple, Jessica and Carl, turned into a fun and memorable, mostly indoor wedding at contemporary Mickey's Sports Bar and Grill in New Buffalo Michigan.
Jessica and Carl wished for a romantic beach wedding in New Buffalo. The nautical feel of Marina Grand Resort tied well with the theme of the wedding and young couple decided to stay there for the weekend. They could not choose better, Marina Grand Resort is fabulous, the rooms are modern, spacious and bright. We photographed the getting ready part there, it was a joy and the result is here for your enjoyment.
The weather seemed to cooperate quite well this past Saturday, with sunny skies and occasional clouds in the morning. That changed very quickly when we parked our cars at the beach. Suddenly it started to rain very hard, like it will never going to stop. I am sure this was a very disappointing moment for everybody. But nothing could stop Jessica and Carl from getting married that day. They are so much in love and rain is not going to change that. They decided to just go ahead and move the ceremony to the reception site at Mickey's. Family members quickly arranged for a ceremony site by the windows and even though it was not on the beach, the view from the large windows out to the gardens, with rain drops rolling down the windows made it quite romantic. There is something about the rain, so sentimental and romantic and as the minister said "The rain makes things grow and it will make your love grow stronger as well".
Eventually it did stop raining and we got a chance for some photos in the garden behind the Mickey's and on the beach as well. The misty air after the rain made for romantic photos on the beach. Who needs a sunny day, any day is pretty on the shores of Lake Michigan.
