Gintaras Resort, Union Pier, Michigan - Romantic beach wedding on the shores of Lake Michigan

Wedding at of Kim and Jeremy at Gintaras Resort in Union Pier, on the shores of Lake Michigan, marked a beginning of the summer season for me. Even though it was only a beginning of May, the weather was beautiful and summery and the best part was, since it is not a summer yet, the private beach of  Gintaras Resort in Union Pier  was free of tourists and we had it all for ourselves.
Kim and Jeremy planned for an intimate ceremony on the beach and their wedding was everything they wished for. It was intimate, emotional, beautiful and romantic.
I, as a photographer, I enjoy small weddings very much. There are not too many distractions and I get more time with bride and groom alone than I would ever get at a big wedding. The couple is also more relaxed when not too many people are around and they are more willing to share emotions. And that's what it is all about for me, to capture love and emotions.















If you are planning a beach wedding, consider off season, like May or September. You will have much more luck to find accommodation along the Lake Michigan and the empty beach for your ceremony. Gintaras Resort gets very busy in the summer and wedding like this would not be possible.
