This past autumn, I had the pleasure of spending an entire day laughing (despite what you see in the first three portraits below) with an amazing couple: Ari and Rosie. They were married in Kalamazoo at WMU’s Kanley Chapel and their reception was held at Rose Street Market downtown.

Rosie and Ari’s ceremony was probably my favorite part of the day. It combined several cultural traditions, spiritual practices, and readings, all with terrific involvement by family and friends (the officiant was the bride’s sister, for one). In all, it’s clear that these two cherish their relationships. Be blessed, you two.

Below are a few highlights from the day.
