Door County has a special spot in many hearts including Eric and Sara who started their relationship with a trip to Door County and then found themselves returning again and again. It has become a special place that was an easy choice for some beautiful engagement photos.
From the Bride-To-Be …Why did we choose Door County? Well, Door County has been a part of our relationship from the very beginning.
One of the very first things we did together was go on a day trip throughout Door County. We stopped at a few of the antique stores throughout Door County. We then stopped at The White Gull in for lunch. We were planning to go to Washington ¬¬¬Island too, but it was so cold and windy we decided not to. We instead, went to Peninsula State Park and went up Eagle’s tower. We went to a few of the lighthouses and drove around Door County until we ended the evening at The Old Post Office Inn for an amazing fish boil.
The following May, Sara’s best friend Deana, and soon to be Matron-of-Honor, came to Wisconsin from New York to meet Eric for the first time. To make it extra special, Sara and Deana took Eric up to Door County for his birthday. They went to The White Gull Inn for another fabulous fish boil. Eric still says that this is probably his most special birthday.
Our next trip to Door County let us to a place that we fell in love with. A friend of ours got married at Clarks Lake. To get away from all of the festivities and just relax, we found a little walk down area not too far from Clark’s Lake that went down to Lake Michigan. Because we love “our spot” as much as we do, we asked our photographer, Ken Cravillion, if he would be willing to drive up to Door County and take our engagement pictures. He agreed because he loves taking pictures of the beautiful scenery in Door County.
The day was actually very fitting for us. It was cold and windy, reminding us of our first trip to Door County together. We first went to “our spot” and then Ken took us to the AMAZING Cave Point Park. We absolutely love the pictures that Ken took of us there. It was almost too beautiful.
After this, Ken took us to the Coast Guard Station to get even more pictures. It is hard to take a bad picture with such a great backdrop. We even had people ask if the background was fake. They said there is no way it is real, it is too perfect and too beautiful.
We absolutely love our time in Door County. We love to spend at least one FULL day in Door County every year. We love the beauty that God has created in our beautiful State. We could not have asked for a better place to have our pictures taken or a better photographer to capture an amazing day. We know that we will be back and revisit all of the areas that will remind us of our special days.
