Judy and Patrick hosted a joyful day on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Elegantly Styled Wedding on the Shores of Door County
When The McCartneys Photography paired up with local vendors to put on the beautiful styled Door County wedding shoot of their collective dreams, they had plenty of inspiration from which to pull. The penisula has served as a favorite vacation destination for families and couples for well over a century, which is no surprise as nature tends to steal the show. There is eye candy all around with giant bluffs, white rock beaches, dunes, cherry orchards in bloom, and winding twisty roads that beg to be driven with the top down. The shoot felt just as appealing with soft, romantic details that took our breath away. And to cap off the perfection? A vintage Mercedes getaway car for the bride and groom to hit the open road toward wedded bliss. Get ready to "ooh" and "aah" over this stunner!
From the photographers:
In a time when brides and grooms are planning some of the most extravagant weddings, what fuels us on a wedding day are the classic touches that scream ‘elegant wedding.’ Textural florals, paper goods setting the tone for a timeless celebration, hand-dyed silk ribbon, a signature drink of champagne with local Door County cherries, a wedding gown that would stun in any era, a hint of sparkle, a classic top bun, and who can forget a classic getaway car? These are the vintage details that stand the test of time! Capturing this shoot on classic medium format film felt true to our goal, which was to convey the natural beauty of Door County while also creating an elegant yet relaxed celebration along one of the most beautiful shores in the Midwest!
