Barbara and Karl's wedding is a true love story. After being sweethearts at a young age, they reconnected and were married along Lake Michigan's waterfront amongst family and friends in an intimate ceremony at the beautiful Boynton Chapel in Björklunden on the Lawrence University Campus in Baileys Harbor, Door County.
The small wooden chapel was built in a late 12th-century Norwegian stave church style and is modeled after the Garmo stave church at Maihaugen in Lillehammer, Norway. It contains numerous hand-painted frescoes and finely carved wood throughout. My portable flash system and lenses allowed me to get some great shots of the special moments of the wedding as well as the interior of the gorgeous chapel without being intrusive.
After the ceremony, we took group and the bridal couple's photos in various locations around the Björklunden property — in front of the chapel, along the waterfront and in the woods before heading to the Waterfront Restaurant in Sister Bay for the reception.
It was a lovely wedding, and it was a wonderful experience being able to capture the romance and joy of Barbara and Karl's special day.
