Jenna and Kyle have been together for a year and a half before Kyle got on one knee in the kitchen and proposed to Jenna. They had a darling Catholic ceremony at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Grand Rapids. The newly wed couple and their bridal party hit the westside by trolley where they kicked back a couple beers at my personal favorite, Putt Putt’s Bar. The reception was held at Lincoln Country Club, where the party proceded with TJ the DJ and everyone danced the night away.
Jenna and Kyle, you both held a great party and I was absolutely honored to be a part of it. Best wishes to the both of you!!! xoxo
My last wedding of the year began in Marquette, MI. My first time as a visitor in Marquette, MI found myself enjoying the beautiful drive and city off of Lake Superior. Ashley and Jeff’s day began at First United Methodist Church, where, at arrival, Ashley was just getting in her gorgeous dress. Jeff on the other hand was dressed and ready to get the show on the road. Him and his groomsmen were finding plenty of ways to entertain themselves as they waited for the ceremony to begin.
Shortly after the ceremony Ashley and Jeff had limo service that drove them around through Marquette. We went to one of the beautiful docks in town and then to the oh so scenic Presque Isle Park. We got to hang out on cliffs overlooking Lake Superior and being entertained by the bridal, particularly the groomsmen. :) The night ended at Upfront & Co. located in downtown Marquette where the party kept going.
Ashley and Jeff, your family is beautiful and your wedding day was fun and gorgeous. I am so honored to have been a part of it. Congratulations to you and your family!!! xoxo
This beautiful fall wedding takes place at Tamaron Country Club in Toledo, OH. I have to say Andrea is one of the most organized brides I have ever met. When I met with Andrea and Ron over a year and a half ago, she had pretty much had every thing set, venue, cake, gown, and all she needed to do was find her bridesmaids dresses. Really, I was super impressed on how ahead of schedule she was with her wedding planning, if only I possessed such great talents.
The ceremony took place inside the country club and was shortly followed with the reception inside as well. The weather had been was absolutely ideal for some outdoor photos, where Califf was able to snatch up some golf carts and we could go to another location on the golf course. I very dangerously sat on the bridesmaid’s lap as we cruised off into more of the golf course. What can I say…I’m a rebel. Actually, not so much. I was scared for my life as I thought that there was no doubt that I was going to fall out of the golf cart, head first with two cameras strapped around my neck. What was I thinking?! It really just makes for a good story and the bridal party in tag kept things entertaining.
What I love about this party is that everyone works at the veterinary office where I take all three of my boys (2 dogs and cat) to. So it was great to see so many familiar faces at Ron and Andrea’s party.
Andrea and Ron it was a pleasure to be a part of your very special day. You guys are so sweet and I wish the best for the both of you!! Congratulations! xoxo
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!!
