A Watervale Inn Wedding
Lauren & Sam
June 10, 2023
On the shore of Lake Michigan sits the lovely Watervale Inn. It is situated on Herring Lake, directly next to Lake Michigan. And, it is a location that is near and dear to Lauren and Sam’s hearts, as well as their family. Lauren and Sam both grew up vacationing here, but never meeting each other while vacationing. When they met at university, they unexpectedly realized they both spent time in the area because Lauren’s stationary (by Gwen Frostic) is local to Arcadia, Michigan. And as people say, the rest is history.
Lauren and Sam’s wedding was an event I was looking forward to. After meeting them the previous year for their engagement photos, I was so excited to spend an entire day with the two of them and their family and friends. These two beautiful soul bring a sense of peace and calmness that resonates around them, with many fun surprises thrown into the mix. Their wedding day started out with a lovely breakfast at the Inn, followed by a morning of puzzles, beach wanderings, and relaxing time to prepare for the wedding. During their wedding, I was secretly crying behind my camera as I photographed Sam tearing up seeing Lauren walk towards him. Following the ceremony, this couple definetly let a little more of their adventurous side loose, from Lauren dunking the basketball on Sam to the the display of their incredible dance moves on the dance floor. This was one spectacular party that I am so blessed to have been a part of.
Congratulations on your marriage Sam and Lauren! I cannot wait to see where life takes you!
