Jessica and Jeff’s wedding began at the Kent Theatre in Cedar Springs.  The Kent Theatre is a historical building built-in the late 1800’s originally as an opera house but today serves as a small town movie theatre in downtown Cedar Springs, and apparently a location to hold a ceremony as well as a number of events.  Popcorn was prepared for guests as they arrived as well as other fixings to see a show such as pop and cotton candy.  The ceremony was short, sweet and to the point.  My favorite was the colors of the bridal party.  It almost reminded me of my own wedding with brightly colored gowns of sky blue and the Maid of Honor and Best Man dressed in bright pink.

“Jeffica” are such a fun loving couple which made this wedding such a joy to shoot because I personally feel it’s so important for couples to enjoy the celebration of their wedding day and just to let loose and have a great time.  That they did.  I think it’s safe to say that everyone, myself included, is so happy to have Jeff safely back home from the military so he can start his life with his new bride.  They were full of laughter that day and it brings so much joy to my heart to have couples like Jeff and Jessica to really enjoy each other’s presence.  Their bridal party was no exception in that everyone had a sense of humor and really saw Jeff and Jessica’s wedding day as a really great celebration, which brings me to the irony of their day.

Their reception was held at Christ the King Church in Howard City, MI, where party continued into the night.  From the first speeches to the groom retrieving the bride’s garter, Jeff, Jessica and the rest of their friends and family had such a great sense of humor and me and Chris laughing all night.

It was such pleasure to photograph your wedding, Jessica and Jeff.  Chris and I had such a fun time.  We wish you both such a long and wonderful marriage!!  Congrats!!
