Wedding in the woods

CRW_4854“Wedding in the woods” was included on Alan’s and my wedding invitations, but for his sister Jessy, and her now husband Eli, it was actually true.

Jessy and Eli have already been together for a long time, and have three children to prove it. Their wedding ceremony was very small, extremely intimate, and also superbly located at the bottom of a waterfall — at the end of a narrow dirt path up hills and under boulders.

To be clear: I was not the official photographer. I was given the OK to take pictures but I also felt sort of awkward doing so, like I was trying to show up the photographer! But an intimate wedding at a waterfall at 10 AM in the UP? I didn’t have a choice, guys.

The ceremony was over in about 5 minutes.

Alan was asked to be witness, too.
They’re pretty cute.

Afterwards a few of us walked to a neighboring waterfall for more photos. Alan and I went because the bride and groom were our ride.

It’s like a little fairy forest!

And then, the “reception”….

Pasties. The local cuisine of the Upper Peninsula. Alan and I got to know these guys pretty well in London. I would’ve eaten 5 of those things but that wouldn’t have been sensible. We got some frozen ones and are going to eat them in about, oh, half an hour.

Before heading back to the hotel we stopped briefly at the Superior shore to buy boat tickets (which is coming up shortly.)

Congrats, Jessy & Eli! Much love <33

Beautiful. The attention to detail is wonderful, and the textures captured in these photos makes me want to reach through the screen and touch everything (and high-five everyone). Thank you for documenting such a special day, and sharing it with the world!
