meg + kevin

We were sitting in a little Ethiopian restaurant just east of downtown. There were eight of us, so we needed two booths… but we all wanted to hear about this girl that Kevin was so smitten with. While we ate dinner, we all tried to listen in closely so we could hear Kevin talk about this sweet girl named Meg. Even though it had only been a couple weeks and they barely knew each other, we could all tell that he was quickly falling for her. Well, long story short… he did fall for her… and she fell for him!

Within a matter of seconds, my suspicions had been confirmed: My baby brother had proposed + she said yes!! And so, the wedding planning began :) On a sunny Saturday in October, our immediate families gathered […]

matt + vanessa – plymouth, mi

They were both perfectly happy and excited to be there in those moments. As of today, these two have been married for a month. I’m positive most of their married days have been filled with lots of joy and laughter because that’s exactly how they live their lives – with sincerity, with care and with lots of fun. These two absolutely adore each other and it was a joy to be […]
