I’m deep within the final stretch of this wedding season, but I absolutely could not wait to share about Natalie and Tyler’s perfect Spring Lake wedding! This sweet couple tied the knot at West Michigan’s iconic Lilley Mansion, built in 1876 and restored through the years to its original glory. For their special day, Natalie […]

I’d like to introduce you all to Brenna and Keegan! They are the sweetest couple. We met up for their engagement session at Oak Beach in South Haven, Michigan. South Haven holds a special place in their hearts because it is the place they got engaged! These two did long distance for a lot of […]

Sharing another beautiful wedding today. Sierra and Michael got married a couple weeks ago at The Morris Estate wedding chapel in Niles, Michigan!

Oh boy, I am really excited about this blog post! Meaghan and Scott had a beautiful spring wedding day at Venue3Two in Grand Rapids. Not only was it a stunning day at one of the best venues in Southwest Michigan, it was also the first wedding I brought my film camera along to in a […]

Let me introduce you to the sweetest couple; Alisa and Braxton. From the moment we had our first phone call, I knew they were so special. We immediately became friends. They are the type of people you meet and feel like you’ve known your entire life. I knew I was in for a treat when […]

Becca and Taylor.. where do I even begin with these two? Their love is sweet (as you will find out for yourself as you scroll through these images), but their hearts are sweeter. They are some of the kindest people I’ve met. Our time together was filled with so much laughter. It was truly life-giving […]

Bridget and Matt got married last fall at the Grand Rapids Art Museum in downtown Grand Rapids. It was the most beautiful and sunny fall day, but the best part was the love that was shared between these two. Between Matt’s medical school residency, buying a house (lots of DIY projects!), and Bridget’s law career, […]

Now that “fake spring” is upon us (in Michigan “fake spring” references the time between March and April where we intermittently have really nice, warm days followed by more winter weather to which winter never seems to end) I decided it would be time to share this beautiful winter wedding! Mackenzie and Christian got married […]

Step back into time with me … back to July, when the sun was shining, when temperatures weren’t in the single digits, and when Kelly and Lee joined together as husband and wife! The tiny details gave this West Michigan wedding an extra something special: the gorgeous detailing on their invitations, Lee’s Spartan-themed cufflinks, the […]
