Neely + Brian’s Gordon Lodge Door County wedding was intimate and perfect for the two of them. Surrounded by family and friends, they got to exchange vows and make it official!
Their wedding was an entire weekend-long celebration, and I got to join them for their welcome dinner the night before. Neely + Brian even did a few portraits with me that evening, sneaking away from their party just for a few minutes to get to know each other.
On their wedding day, I joined Neely + the ladies first in their cabin during prep time. They got ready together, and their family joined in and enjoyed the sunshine on the front deck facing the water. It was such a gorgeous start to the day!
Then I joined Brian while he put the final touches on his attire for the day, and prepped for the First Look. Neely got to see him for the first time, and vice versa, overlooking stunning Lake Michigan. After an emotional few moments, they also exchanged vows privately before the ceremony, so it was just the two of them. It was so special.
Neely + Brian’s ceremony was next, overlooking Lake Michigan. They both fell in love with Gordon Lodge the first time they visited, and knew they wanted to get married here. Especially in front of the lake!
After the ceremony and some bridal party portraits, they got to have cocktail hour and dinner with guests. It was the perfect setting to mingle and visit with everyone who joined their intimate day.
Brian + Neely, I’m so grateful you asked me to document and join your intimate wedding weekend celebration! You two, the day of joining your families, everything was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate you!
