From Ashley Slater Photography – “This lovely styled elopement took place on the nostalgic island of Mackinac in Michigan. Mackinac is an island that only allows bikes and horses (no motorized vehicles!) and stepping onto Main Street is like stepping back in time.

Once a year the island springs to life with lilacs and the lilac festival happens and it was during this time that our lovely styled elopement shoot took place! Our details were everything lavender and lilac and the sweet couple posed with the island’s bikes and famous horses.

Floral artist Jen kept the bouquet simple and gathered bunches of fresh lilac and Bella e Dolce sugared the most realistic and adorable lilac blooms on top of white cakes!”

  1. This is so sweet and I just love the colors!

  2. Absolutely love the lilacs with the lace!

  3. The sense that you don’t get to experience is that wonderful smell of lilacs in full bloom on Mackinac Island. What a magical time of year it is typically sometime in June. Come and experience the beauty of the island!
