Alexis + Clark | Lakefront Summer Wedding


With the temps in Chicago gradually getting lower, it’s making me think back on summer weddings. One that immediately pops into my mind is Alexis + Clark’s beautiful late summer wedding at a lakefront property in Indiana.

Alexis + Clark met at a frat party while studying at Purdue and the rest is history. As a fellow Purdue alum, I was thoroughly pleased to see their signature drink being served out of Harry’s cups (if you know, you know) and of course the fight song was played well into the night. The plan was always to get married on the lake Alexis grew up on. She was a vision as she entered her own wedding ceremony on a boat – it doesn’t get much more #lakelife than that! The bridesmaids wore dresses in a gradient of green colors that were perfect for the end of summer. Personal touches were in every detail of the day: Alexis’s dad built the arbor they said their vows under, turtles were incorporated into the decor as a nod to her relationship with her mother and they even released baby turtles into the lake at the end of the night!

The day was filled with silly moments and lively energy as the DJ played hit after hit. It was the perfect end of summer wedding!
