Sunset photo of bride and groom at the top of crystal mountain resortbride and groom in downtown frankfort on the dock

Northern Michigan is simply a lovely backdrop for weddings in so many different areas.  For Brooke and Brandon, their perfect wedding was in Frankfort, Michigan with their reception held at the always beautiful Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa.  Surrounded by the beautiful warmth of the sun, the gentle waves on Lake Michigan, beautiful florals designed by the mother of the bride, and family and friends, Brooke and Brandon were married in downtown Frankfort.

Brooke and Brandon’s sense of adventure and love of travel and the outdoors was seen throughout the day, from the little tour around the area to have pictures in some of their favorite locations, to the amazing decorations done with the theme of “The Adventure Starts Here”, Brooke and Brandon celebrated their amazing day.  And with Adventure and travel the theme of the day, we of course had to have a little adventure.

Late in the evening, as the sun was setting, we took an off road trip to the top of the mountain to capture a photo of them at sunset (above).  And…they topped off their wedding with a fantastic adventure to Peru.

Brooke and Brandon, thank you for taking me along on your wonderful adventure of your wedding day.  It was fantastic in every way!  I wish you a lifetime of happiness, joy and always…wonderful adventures!  Love and appreciation….Rayan
