Kevin + Meg absolutely adore each other and being a part of their wedding day as a photographer was a dream. They were excited, nervous, so happy and so, so enamored with each other. But being a part of their wedding day as their friend was TRULY an honor. It’s been such a blessing to watch these two fall in love (starting at GVSU where they had their ceremony!) and plan to spend the rest of their lives together. They are gracious, humble and caring individuals and that is not only portrayed in the way they interact with each other, but the way they interact with their family, friends and others. There’s a lot I could say about these two and this day, but I’ll let the images do the talking. Oh, and if you can’t get enough of them, check out their autumn engagement session in downtown Grand Rapids. That was also a great, great day.
Kevin + Meg – I love you both and am so humbled that you would trust me with capturing your wedding day. It was such a wonderful celebration and a God-honoring beginning to your forever marriage. I cannot wait to see where this marriage journey leads you two. Thank-you for inviting Jonathan and I into your lives! Congratulations, again!!Brides, take note at the awesome light in this room. At this ceremony site, typically the guys get ready in this room, but this time, Meg claimed it for more space and better natural light. It made for some really beautiful images as she was getting ready! If you have the choice, always choose a room with big windows! You’ll thank me later ;)Because of the distance between the ceremony and reception, Kev and Meg chose to do a first look to take care of most of their portraits before the ceremony. That way, the guests could drive right to the reception and not have to wait long for the party to start! I loved these sweet moments from the first time they saw each other that day…Oh, the light! The trees! I felt like we were in a secret garden during these portraits. So magical!Then, it was time for the bridal party to join us for a little while!Oh, and that handsome best man next to Kevin? That’s my hubby, Jonathan. Just thought you should know ;) The ceremony was held inside the Cook DeWitt Center on the campus of Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI.After the ceremony, it was off to the Midtown Center in Holland for the reception! First, we took a couple minutes to take a few more portraits downtown before we headed in for dinner…These two LOVE craft root beer. Of course, they had to have it on tap at their reception!Closing the party down with “At Last” by Etta James. What a perfect moment.
