Kaitlyn + Randy’s Country Wedding | Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer |

Is there anything sweeter than a country wedding? Okay I call it country but really I was only 20 minutes north of Grand Rapids but when there are apple farms and corn fields surrounding the church and reception, than you get country. What can I say, I like to be within spitting distance of my neighbors, I’m a city girl at heart 🙂  Even though we might have been surrounded by corn fields Kaitlyn and Randy’s wedding had a fabulous elegant, romantic, summery, pink and a CRAZY FUN vibe to it. I mean who doesn’t love arm wrestling at the Wright Bar in between the ceremony and reception. This was one wild wedding party and after a few minutes with the guys I knew we were in trouble.  Kaitlyn did an amazing job with the details; mason jars, gorgeous flowers,  homemade strawberry jam favors and her beautiful lace dress were perfect. Kaitlyn was breathtaking and looked amazing in front of the camera! And Randy wasn’t looking too bad either 🙂

I had so much fun with you both on your wedding day. Your family and friends were so sweet, kind and were so much fun to be around. Thank you also to Nicole for assisting me!

Congratulations Kaitlyn and Randy!!

Amanda + Bryan Wedding | Grand Haven Nautical Wedding Photographer |

On this rainy evening I think this is the perfect wedding to bring some warmth and sun to the day. Just like Katia and Scott’s wedding, this is going to be a Pinterest pinners dream! Tons of handmade details including fabric flower bouquets, knot tied boutonnieres, cake flag topper, table runners, ceremony programs and so much more! Amanda and Bryan’s nautical themed wedding was absolutely gorgeous thanks to the help of the fabulous team of White Dress Events who helped coordinate their day. Their outdoor ceremony at Mill Point Park in Spring Lake was the perfect setting for their early evening ceremony. The reception was gorgeously decorated in nautical theme at Harbourfront Grand Hall in Grand Haven.  Oh and I can’t forget to mention one of my favorite things of the day, the amazingly delicious ice cream cake from Sweet Temptations that I had to sample 2 different kinds of just to make sure it was good! I think more couples should serve this at their wedding, I mean who doesn’t like mint chocolate chip ice cream cake or peanut butter and chocolate one!! Okay sorry, enough about the yummy ice cream.  Amanda and Bryan were so much fun to work with.  I already knew from their phenomenal engagement session that they both knew how to work the camera, especially Amanda.  She was radiant looking and just a dream to photograph. They are super sweet and so cute together and it totally shows in their pictures.

Now get ready for some awesomeness, yes awesomeness! This wedding is just to die for!

Congrats Amanda and Bryan!

Genevieve McKeiver Photography - This was in Grand Haven. On the docks right in downtown

Sarah - Hi! I’m getting married in Grand Haven and Love your pictures! Can you tell me where you took the dock photos?


Gary Hanks - Your photos are wonderful. I’ve been searching for a photo that showcases ceremonies at Mill Point Park in Spring Lake. You’ve got one here on your site for Amanda + Bryan’s ceremony shown taking place under the band shell at the park.

We’ve been wanting to show potential brides/grooms that Millpoint Park is a great ceremony site…only 4 or 5 blocks from where they could have their reception at Seven Steps Up Event & Banquet Center.

Would you allow us to use your photo for this purpose if your business was properly credited? If you’re agreeable, I’d suggest you add a watermark to the photo.

p.s. – Cassie Celestin referred your work to me.
