Tiffany & Don - Romantic Blush and Gold Gordon Lodge Wedding

Where do I begin with this day?! The first full day of summer, filled with glittering sunshine, the most elegant blush, gold and blue theme set against the rustic and natural beauty of Gordon Lodge, a couple just exuding joy to start their life was perfection!

Tiffany and Don are such an incredibly sweet couple. Tiffany is absolutely gorgeous - not just on the outside, but on the inside too! Every time I talked or met with her I came away feeling encouraged and uplifted, she is such a genuine person! Don is also such a genuinely kind person with kind blue eyes and a wonderful smile, you instantly feel at ease around him. To see him interact with their son, Kashton, and the way he just adores Tiffany, melted my heart. During the bridesmaid speeches all of them noted how Tiffany and Don had found their match, someone so similar in personality and character.

Tiffany and Don chose to have a small, intimate wedding at Gordon Lodge, tucked back in the pines along Lake Michigan, in Door County. It was a picture perfect summer day and after guests hugged, kissed and congratulated the couple, they were able to enjoy yard games and refreshments overlooking the lake while the bridal party whooped and cheered for the newly married couple as we did photos on the dock. Such a fun group that truly celebrated the joining of these too!

The lodge where the dinner and dancing were held was breath-taking. High ceilings, huge windows over looking Lake Michigan, fresh florals, sparkling table runners, and twinkling tea lights on every table gave the room a feeling of elegance and intimacy. The speeches during dinner were both heart touching and humorous, Tiffany alternated between her incredible laugh and wiping tears; job well done, bridal party!

After dinner we ventured out for some time for just Tiffany and Don to pause, reflect on the day and enjoy some time together. My favorite part of the day! We found some magical spots, the lighting was golden perfection, and love just shines from every moment captured!

It was such a beautiful day and I am in awe that Tiffany and Don invited me to be part of their celebration! Wishing you a lifetime of joy Mr. and Mrs. Sura!

I had never been to Gordon Lodge before, but instantly fell in love. Tucked back in the towering pines right on Lake Michigan it is a sight to behold on a sunny summer day! Immaculate landscaping, natural buildings with plenty of windows to let in the light and views. It's magical!

Loved Tiffany's theme of gold and blush. It was so elegant and light for a wedding on the waterfront!

That tearful, joyful moment when Mom looks at her daughter and realizes she is a grown woman...a bride!

And now it's guy time!

Tiffany and Don have a sweet little guy who took his role for the day pretty seriously!

Don just exuded love for his mini.

Not too shabby, boys!

Looking handsome and ready to see his bride!

The ceremony was right on the shores of Lake Michigan. How picturesque!

With a crisp white arbor crowned with an incredible floral swag to frame it all!

Go time!

I love venues where guests can enjoy open outdoor areas during cocktail hour. Refreshing breezes off the lake, sunshine, delicious appetizers and yard games - perfection!

Oh my goodness, this venue was a dream! The pops of glitter, the amazing florals...I could go on!

I love how Tiffany kept the blush and gold theme with each unique dress the bridesmaids chose!

I love evening light and am always so grateful when couples have room in their schedule to go out and enjoy a moment together!

I had asked Amy, the lodge coordinator, if she had any recommendations for Tiffany and Don's time together. She mentioned this spot down by the water, and while it was a bit spongy in places, it was magical!

Tiffany and Don wanted to bust out some ballroom dancing moves for their first dance, so they took a moment to practice...surrounded by towering pines and the evening sun for a spotlight!

Tiffany and her favorite little men!
