The rustic charm of Lakeside Inn, combined with natural beauty of Lake Michigan shore is a favorite hideaway retreat for many from Chicago area and works great for smaller weddings, reunions and parties as well. Nathan's family loves to come here to escape the Chicago hectic lifestyle. Jessica and Nathan fell in love with the beauty of this place and choose to have their wedding at the rustic Lakeside Inn.
I fell in love with it as well, this hidden retreat is only 10 minute from New Buffalo. You can not beat the 10 minute drive home after shooting wedding the whole day.
It was a family affair, they rented the whole place out. Bride and groom had a lovely room with many windows and a big tub, very nice room for bride to get ready.
The front porch of Lakeside Inn is the best place to be, with a good book, with a drink, or with your loved one. One can enjoy the serenity this place offers, surrounded by tall trees, listen to birds and waves.
I was planning to take many shots here on this porch, but unfortunately the weather turned very cold overnight and not just that, but there was a really strong wind blowing from the lake as well. The wedding party was brave enough to go out for a few minutes. I know, they do not look like they are freezing, that's the magic of photography.
And these two love birds are not freezing, because they are so in love, they do not notice little details like cold.
Love this last shot on the front porch of Lakeside Inn. Looks like from a different era and it sums up the whole wedding, elegant, vintage, romantic.
