Where do I even begin?

Our time with Lacey and Jon on their wedding day was enjoyable and uplifting. Their love for each other and for God spilled out and drenched the congregation of of friends and family. I love celebrating and photographing. What a blessing these two will be  for whatever community they’re a part of in Grand Rapids.

Lacey and Jon were technically married in Delaware,OH but with S.E.O. being what it is, I went with Columbus in my title. The day was gorgeous. Not too hot and Spring was all about the land. Blooming trees, fresh scents, and unbridled joy were in abundance. Lets look at some pictures.

We’ll start with the ladies at the salon…

First dances.

The floor was then opened to dancing and so begins one of my favorite times to be a photographer.
