The bride’s family lake house on Lake Mitchell was the gorgeous setting for Lacey and Nik’s Summer wedding day. Blue skies above, calm waters on the lake and lots of excitement in the air. The lake house had been a common family gathering place to the bride’s family so it was very special for Lacey and Nik to marry in the same special location where so much love and laughter has been shared and will continue for years to come.
Bride Lacey wanted all her puppy dogs to be a part of her day and this little one was close by during hair and make up preparations..
All the details were in place to reflect the warm and loving lake lifestyle the family enjoys including koozies with a map of the area
More puppy love for bride Lacey
