I’m here to turn your wildest wedding dreams into reality. Picture this: an amazing day, just you two, surrounded by the untamed beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It’s not your typical wedding; it’s an intimate, magical escape into nature’s embrace.

I specialize in helping non-traditional, nature-loving couples craft Their Magical And Unique Wedding Experience in Michigan.

What is an elopement?

choosing a fun, stress-free, and truly enjoyable wedding experience in nature that’s focused on what matters most- your love story.

When we work together, I’ll assist you in curating an unforgettable wedding experience, giving you the freedom to truly savor every moment. Your elopement day will be a stress-free celebration of your love, and I’ll be there to document every moment in beautiful images. In the end, you’ll have lifelong memories to cherish and stunning wall-worthy art.


You’re standing in an incredible spot in nature. As the wind winds its way around you, the sun warms your skin, and the sound of Lake Superior’s crashing waves fills your ears, you can feel intense sacred energy as if the ancient spirits of the land are rising up to greet you. It’s as if the rocks, trees, and sky are alive and welcoming you home.

Now you open your eyes, look into the sparkling eyes of your partner, smile, take their hand, and place the ring on their finger…

You just had the most incredible experience, joining your soul mate in marriage and beginning your journey together in a breathtaking place in the wilds of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Instead of feeling rushed or pressured on your wedding day, you had the freedom to relax, unwind, let go, and be totally present in each amazing moment.
