Rachel & Bryan Wedding {Grand Rapids, MI}

We all know people who have a long engagement period prior to their wedding. There many good reasons for couples to take that approach, but the waiting just sucks. I had the privilege of being present when Bryan asked Rachel to marry him (engagement blogpost!) back in March of 2015. From that point it was 563 long days until their wedding. It should be abundantly clear to you that many of those 13,512 hours went toward planning some aspect of this wedding, because there were so. many. gorgeous. details.

Enjoy these highlights from an amazing wedding of two adorable lovebirds. Their family and friends love them dearly and I am thrilled to have been involved.

Every now and then I just have to make a gif. Here are two 🙂

Hanging out with them as their lives transformed in front of our lenses was a wonderful treat. Let walk through their wedding day. Oh, and it's Dana's Birthday tomorrow! Happy Birthday, Dana! Remember, you can comment here or comment AND tag on Facebook. Your choice. And now, the pictures. The ceremony was held at Wildwind community church in Flint, ...
Kelly & Austin Wedding {Plainwell, MI}
I, like everyone else who loves Kelly and Austin, am so happy for the arrival of this wedding day. These two have faced their share of good times and bad, but it's so much sweeter now that they're operating as a tag-team dynamic duo in the eyes of God and their local state/county/province. Watch out, contiguous United States! Their wedding day was full of personal touches which speak to their creativity, playfulness, and humor. Ideally, you'll get a sense of that through these photos. Lets start together at Kelly's mom's house with the guys getting ready in the basement. Enjoy the scroll, friends. The girls, getting read ...
