Local Love: Tanner Kading and Tanya McKinney

Tanner Kading and Tanya McKinney eloped in a spontaneous and intimate ceremony last fall at Glen Arbor, Michigan. With their pastor and his wife and their two closest friends as witnesses, the couple experienced the perfect day at their Vrbo, complete with a walk on the beach, a ceremony in the woods, and an evening campfire with plenty of stories over great food and whiskey. “I truly think this is the wedding that everyone secretly wants but maybe doesn’t do because of obligation to tradition and/or family,” Tanya says.
