Grand Rapids Wedding, Grand Rapids, Michigan Wedding Photographer

Cheers to Nick and and Lauren on the 1st year of marriage!  I was so honored they chose to for their big day...I know that can sound cliche' but when I get to photograph couples, each and every wedding leaves something with me... and I still remember the spark between the two of them!  I remember Lauren's contagious smile and Nick's funny personality and the way the two of them lit up the room!  They had a great wedding party with their loving families and outgoing and energetic bridal party... it was a fun day... but it was also a memorable day.

Lauren had the most amazingly beautiful bouquet and her dress.... she was such a stunning bride!

 We toured around their old stomping grounds at Aquinas College for these fun shots...It was a HOT day in July but it was so worth it to hear them tell their story and share their love for each other with their closest friends.

 This was one of my favorite shots from the day... some of the college was under construction but this beautiful old building had just the right amount of charm and rustic appeal to pair with a beautiful couple to get the most beautiful shot!

 As you can see, this crew was not afraid to loosen up and have a good time!  They were there to celebrate their friendship and love for this new family...and what a celebration it was!

Lauren and Nick, you may never read these words but I wish you the very best as you have celebrated your first year of marriage on this day!

In the years to come, may your memories together continue and the traditions for your family become your own.  Whether you grow in numbers or just continue to grow closer together through each passing day, may your blessings abound in every year you celebrate!  CHEERS!
