When searching for the perfect location for their dream wedding, Chicago couple Allison and Erik decided on a destination wedding weekend in South Haven, Mich. The ceremony and reception took place at the Lake Bluff Inn & Suites on August 21, 2010. These gorgeous photos were taken by this week’s featured photographer, Miller + Miller Wedding Photography.

The couple decided to keep their ceremony simple, exchanging vows without any attendants, under a beautiful arch overlooking the Lake Michigan shoreline. The bride wore a sweet, tea-length dress custom designed for her by Maria Rendina, along with a custom-designed veil by Maria Rendina. The groom wore a classy Hugo Boss tuxedo.
