real michigan wedding :: romantic elegance in st. joseph

There is so much I love about this beautiful St. Joseph, Michigan wedding. From the gorgeous navy linens and crisp white florals, to the adorable dessert table display! This gorgeous Lake Michigan wedding took place in St. Joseph, with the reception held at the beautiful Veranda at the Whitcomb, overlooking Lake Michigan. The bride & groom live in Chicago and planned their destination wedding in Michigan (the brides home state) from afar, with the help of Stella Event Design. Check out the gorgeous photos below from Jami Jujawa and Melissa Brentlinger of Jennifer Mayo Studios!

Soft overhead lantern lighting gave the room a romantic glow, while crisp white florals from Crystal Springs were set off against the navy shantung linens. As a nod to the brides passion for photography, picture frames were incorporated throughout the event, being showcased on the guest tables, as a backdrop for the dessert table, and in the escort card display!

If you’re looking for a great way to create an exciting end to your lake shore wedding, consider a choreographed send off! Sparklers are a great choice, but you can also opt for the traditional, using rose petals or bird seed, or change it up by using colorful ribbon wands, or ringing bells!
