I always love doing a styled shoot! For this Traverse City Michigan Elopement, I turned the excursion into a vacation/work venture. My husband and I really wanted to travel somewhere relaxing and both of us have never been to Traverse City. After booking an amazing Airbnb, I did some networking with friends and colleagues and found Chelsea Chapin of Springerele Events. We both loved the Airbnb and after talking, we decided on a boho, vintage-inspired elopement theme. Thru Chelsea’s local contacts, we found a baker to design our simple cake, and Chelsea found some lovely florals and planned all the gorgeous displays.  Both Chelsea and I shopped for hours for vintage-inspired decor and tableware for our shoot. Chelsea was also able to find a real wedding couple who were to be married in the next couple of months. Which was perfect! The weather was absolutely gorgeous for the day, and we all had such a fun time walking around the cottage grounds along with all our dogs and photographing the elopement session. The couple actually was married this past November and brought their beloved doggy, Jaxson along for the fun! Thanks to all the great people and vendors that contributed to our Traverse City Michigan Elopement!
