Rustic Scheltema Barn Wedding | Nick & Kara

Next up on the wedding blogs from 2019 is Nick & Kara’s rustic Scheltema Barn wedding! As I pulled up to the venue that morning, we were threatened by dark clouds and rain. With the ceremony happening outside, that always ends up putting a bit of extra stress on the couple! However for these two, they were just so happy to be getting married I don’t think I saw it bother them at all! Such a sweet and easy-going couple, they were ready to celebrate the best day of their lives!

Snowy Aquinas College Engagement | Katie and Ryan

In last week’s blog post, I mentioned how since the rebrand, I’ve really honed in on my perfect ideal clients, and Katie and Ryan are definitely included in that! During their snowy Aquinas College engagement session, it was clear to see that they loved to snuggle up and be goofy with each other! Even during our consultation we talked about Mexican food and Parks and Rec…so it was an instant click for me with them haha!

Every once in a while though, a certain wedding or couple will stand out just a little bit above the rest, like Robert & Katie’s English Hills Terrace retro wedding.

Grand Rapids Public Museum & Planetarium Wedding

Grand Rapids Public Museum & Planetarium Wedding | Jeannie & Isaiah

I am SO excited to share Jeannie & Isaiah’s Grand Rapids Public Museum & Planetarium wedding today!! Actually, I’ve been excited about this couple since the moment Jeannie walked up to my booth at the bridal show and asked if I was comfortable taking on a planetarium wedding! Ever since I was a kid I have always loved the stars, planets, and night sky, so capturing a wedding underneath a giant moon was absolutely a dream for me! I knew it would be a challenge but I got to work right away researching how I could best capture the dark sky and the couple! I am just so thrilled with how the day went. Not only was the venue just amazing, Jeannie & Isaiah had so many unique and personal touches throughout the day!
