When Toni contacted me this summer about her upcoming wedding – I was thrilled! I met Toni and her beautiful children a couple years ago when she had me photograph their family in downtown Grand Rapids. A few months ago, she became engaged to Carl – a wonderful, kind-hearted, sweet man who adores her (and her kiddos!). I was so excited for the two of them and couldn’t wait to be a part of their day!
Carl + Toni made plans for a small, local wedding in November… with talks of spending time downtown, at a restaurant or elsewhere. They eventually decided that a ceremony in their living room and champagne + cake in their dining room would be perfect – and it was! The venue was obviously not your “typical” wedding setting, but the day was lovely in every way. I was so honored to be invited in their home and be one of the few among the intimate gathering + celebration of their wedding vows. Congratulations, Carl + Toni!
