Carolyn & Colin in Harbor Springs, MI

A lodge on Lake Michigan is the scenic backdrop for one couple's outdoor wedding.

Carolyn and Colin met in 2001 while visiting a mutual friend in San Diego. "Colin needed a ride to Los Angeles, so he hopped in my car and we got to know each other while we were stuck in Southern California's infamous traffic," Carolyn says.

She wore an Alençon lace gown with beaded appliqués from the Birnbaum & Bullock Collection. "I loved how elegant I felt in it," she says.
