Two years ago, when I first started writing for the Rackham blog, I wrote a post about beach towns on Lake Michigan. That summer, I got engaged on a Lake Michigan beach. And, last month, I got married on that beach. For the wedding, we rented Camp Blodgett in the small town of West Olive, which, during the week, is home to a summer camp for kids. Camp Blodgett was the gorgeous, outdoor location that my wife and I love. We could look out at the vast beauty of Lake Michigan, feel the fine sand between our toes as we walked down to the beach, and have a bonfire with our family and friends. After the wedding, we went to Alaska for the honeymoon, and spent much of our time outdoors experiencing nature. We had a wonderful time and made lots of great memories.
