This incredible beach wedding wasn’t technically on the beach, it was on top of Mt Baldy which is a huge dune located along the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Regardless of whether or not you would consider this a beach wedding the bride, groom and guests had a stunning view of Lake Michigan.
To get to the ceremony site on top of the dunes requires a hike through the park, the walk takes about 5 minutes and isn’t too challenging. Unless you have a lot of elderly people attending the ceremony or you’re carrying 30lbs of camera gear and are paranoid sand getting sand into your lenses you shouldn’t have any problem!
As you can tell the view is incredible and the fact that the wedding ceremony was on the beach meant we were able to get beautiful wedding pictures overlooking Lake Michigan, the beach, and the dunes.
This is one of my favorite shots on the beach with the bridal party, everyone had to run from the top of the dune down to the lake and put their feet in the water to cool off before doing the jump!
