Michigan Summer Maltese Stone Castle Wedding – Jason + Michelle

Jason and Michelle got married at the Maltese Stone Castle in Lexington, Michigan. The castle was built in 1930 and is an amazing piece of Michigan’s architectural history and heritage. It was built using sand and stones from Lake Huron and each room is filled with unique characteristics. Every time you step into a new room you have to remember to look up to admire the beautiful ceilings the builders created. This little gem in Lexington was a perfect spot for Jason and Michelle’s intimate family ceremony. It was a small ceremony with less than 20 people in total but filled with so much love and happiness.

Jason and Michelle met online where they talked for two weeks before meeting in person. Their first date was at a bar in Richmond where they talked over drinks and appetizers. When they met, it was an instant connection and they have been together for almost 7 years now.

Jason proposed to Michelle on Christmas Day. They were opening gifts and she unwrapped a huge ring box with a large diamond paper weight inside. She looked an him, laughed, and then told him that it was a “little big” and that she couldn’t get it on. At that moment he got down on one knee and pulled out the ring box and asked her to marry him, and of course she said “YES!”

Jason and Michelle’s wedding was truly a special event and I loved being apart of it. After the ceremony, everyone gathered for a few family pictures and then headed to the a small dinner reception at the Windjammer on the pier in Lexington.

Here are a few of my favorites from Jason and Michelle’s wedding day!
