Chris & Ali : Weko Beach Wedding Photography

Ali and Chris tied the knot this past weekend in a small beach ceremony at Weko Beach House in Bridgman, Michigan. Last summer at the Lakeshore Wedding Walk, Ali bid on a wedding collection I had entered in a  charity auction and won! All proceeds from the auction went to benefit Wish Upon a Wedding. This last weekend, we got to finally celebrate! Despite the cold lake breeze, these two had a marvelous time surrounded by the warmth of their friends and family. Chris is an avid fisherman, and they incorporated that into their theme. Check out a few of the details of their day below:

I loved the table decor of fish nets, fish, and bright accents.

The cool wind didn't stop these two from having a blast at their ceremony.

 Chris literally "hooked" his new wife during the kiss.
The fish hook on his boutonierre stuck to Ali's dress.
That moment their son Nash also decided he had had enough!

The number 16 is very significant to Ali and Chris. It was even the exit for their wedding!
