Kelli + Jeff Married | City Flats Grand Rapids Wedding |

Okay I’m not even going to try and write a lengthy post here. I started this post 2 weeks ago and once again it’s the writing that has stalled it! I want what I say to be amazing, I think I just need to get to the point and not worry about sounding awesome. So instead I’m just going to make it short and sweet.

Jeff and Kelli were married in stunning glamorous style. I think of all of the dresses I have photographed, Kelli’s is my most favorite. It’s nothing like I’ve ever seen and it fit her and the day perfectly! They were married in a beautiful candle lit ceremony at City Flats Ballroom in downtown Grand Rapids and partied the night away there too! What an amazing location, seriously one of my favorites in the area. Their day couldn’t have been more emotional but amazing. From her sister (and previous bride Amanda) getting out of the hospital just in time for pictures to her brother, who was granted a military leave for the weekend, to surprise everyone, it was one of the most joyous days I’ve been a part of. Just take a look at these pictures and I think you’ll agree, plus Kelli looked stunning and Jeff, well I swear these two could be models!

6.20.13 Holly + Matt Married | Wildwood Family Farms Photographer |

 Okay I know it, I sound like a broken record! I get these images all ready for blogging and then it comes to the writing and well, they just sit. Well for the first several months of the year big things have been going on which has kept me away from the computer, that’s a whole different post and story. But for now I’ll try and keep this one short and sweet.

Holly and Matt were married on a perfect first day of summer at the beautiful Wildwood Family Farms.  The weather was amazing, the setting was just perfect and the details, well did I happen to mention that Holly’s mom owns Something Borrowed Vintage Staging and Rentals? So needless to say things were pretty amazing. These two college sweethearts are completely smitten for each other. Holly has an amazing infectious smile and energy  (she was a Gerber baby after all) and Matt has a soft and calming way about him. They compliment each other perfectly! It was such an honor to photograph their very special day. From the homemade wedding cakes, the Tim Horton donuts, Cakabakery cupcakes and the John Wayne mug, everything about the day had these little personal details that all added up to a whole bunch of gorgeousness (and deliciousness too!).

I could go on and on about the rest of the details but I think I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves, I really don’t think my words would do them justice!

So enjoy 🙂
