Jake & Julie | A Lakeside Wedding at Harrington Beach State Park


filed in

Julie & Jake’s wedding ended up changing a bit due to COVID-19, but that didn’t stop them from still throwing one heck of a party with their family and friends to celebrate! Instead of having their reception at their original venue, they threw a backyard party for their guests that included delicious food, a bounce house for the kids and wait for it, a mechanical bull! It may not have been how they planned it, but it was still perfect in every way!

Their intimate wedding on a bluff on Lake Michigan was simple and pure perfection. Their dogs Jack & Elsa made up the wedding party (and stole the show as usual) and the love between Julie & Jake was evident. After the ceremony, Julie’s dad drove them and a few of their friends around behind his tractor to a few local bars to celebrate! These two were proof that even if things don’t go as planned, your day can still be absolutely perfect in it’s own special way! Congratulations Jake & Julie!
