Remember this cute couple? Well, they tied the knot – yay!!
I may be a little bias towards November, but it is one of the BEST months to get married. I think people have low expectations for November in Michigan (rightly so… I mean its not fall… and its not quite winter). But often, November is surprisingly awesome – and the weather this day did NOT disappoint! It was a perfect November Saturday – a little chilly, but sunny and gorgeous. Michaeleen + Josh had a shorter engagement (about 5 months), but proved that you don’t always need a long engagement to plan a beautiful wedding. Having met at Grand Valley State University, Michaeleen + Josh decided to have their ceremony in the chapel on campus. Their reception followed at the Main Street Pub right down the road. I loved all the details that Michaeleen + Josh (and friends + family) pulled together to make the day perfect. From the handmade boutonnieres and hair pins to the mustaches and nerf guns, it was nothing short of a fun celebration. Laughter and joy ensued all day long and I could not have been happier than to be there on that day to capture this wedding story.
Michaeleen + Josh, thank-you from the bottom of my heart for inviting me to be a part of your story. I loved every single minute of your day and we are thrilled that you are husband and wife. May these images continue to be a reminder of that wonderful day in November and the commitment you made to each other :) Without further adieu, here’s a little preview of your day…
Josh may have gotten his guys the best groomsmen gift ever… Nerf guns. No one was safe that day.Every moment is an exciting moment with these two. Here’s a few images from their first look…Love all the ladies different dresses!…not even the photographer was safe from the Nerf guns!!For her toast, Katie, the maid of honor, coined a rap about Michaeleen + Josh’s love story…to the tune of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” theme song… complete with a backup beat-boxer! It was pretty legit!
