Chris is from Michigan and his family has a cottage on Glen Lake near sleeping bear dunes. Mary is from Florida. They met during her senior year at university on a cruise ship in the Caribbean during one of the last nights on the cruise. And that meeting left an impression – so much so that Mary knew Chris was her person after 2 days on a cruise with him!
They exchanged phone numbers, and when Mary had time, she came to Michigan to spend time with Chris…getting to know him better. On a trip when she met his family, she knew she was in love…as was Chris.
Chris proposed to Mary at the top of Sleeping Bear Dunes in July of this year, and for their engagement photos, we headed back to the same location. In addition, the evening had a surprise in store for us, the Northern Lights! After a walk through the dunes, we waited until darkness came and took some Astro Engagement photographs. For about 5 minutes, the Northern Lights made a showing. We also captured them while photographing the Milkway.
It was so incredible to spend time with the two of you. I cannot wait until your wedding next year! ~Rayan
