Heather + Eric | Lake Michigan Beach Wedding | Laurenda Marie Photography | St. Joseph, MI

Heather and Eric were married last August on the beach in St. Joseph, Michigan. I thought it was fitting to finally share a portion of their day on my blog as it was just picked up and featured by WeddingDay Magazine online! 

I met Heather a few years ago after she contacted me about photos with her 3 year old son, Levi. Who, side note, is basically the most handsome little boy there ever was! We continued to stay in touch, and worked together a handful of times more before she contacted me about her engagement session, and a few days later secured me for her wedding day!

Heather and Eric's wedding was nothing short of amazing, as expected! From their beautiful beach ceremony over-looking Lake Michigan, to their spectacular reception at the Veranda at the Whitcomb, you could feel the love and happiness just radiating from these two.

It's really sweet how much Heather and Eric adore each other. I admittedly choked up on several occasions, like when Heather was reading her letter from Eric before putting on her dress, and when her son Levi walked her down the beach "aisle". Waterworks you guys! I feel big, and I felt all of the love that day. Heather and Eric are some of the kindest souls you'll ever meet too. Laid-back, relaxed, and carefree - exactly how their wedding day was. It wasn't about all of the beautiful details (and let me tell you, they were beautiful!) but it was about THEM, the love they have for each other, and the new family they created with Levi.
