Downtown Market Grand Rapids Winter Wedding | Nekoda & Todd

Nekoda & Todd’s Downtown Market Grand Rapids winter wedding was one that I definitely looked forward to since meeting with these two! The Downtown Market is such a gorgeous venue, so their greenhouse makes for a perfect wedding anytime of year! So, not to get all serious on you, but this is also a wedding I’ll remember for a very long time. This wedding was February 29, 2020. A leap day, and the last “normal wedding” I’ve seen. While news was starting to circulate, Covid wasn’t a real threat yet, and we were still in the “it won’t happen here” mindset of our lives. There may have even been a joke about it while a bottle of Fireball got passed around the party bus. If I had known, I might have danced a little longer that night.

Ok, enough about that. Scroll through below to see their chilly but sunny and beautiful day, and how they incorporated their fur-babies in the cutest way!!

A tip: Get your girls matching PJ’s or outfits to get ready in, since this makes your getting ready photos look more cohesive and polished!

Since it was February, Nekoda’s stunning dress had these delicate sleeves with perfect detailing!

I love seeing special touches at weddings, and this is a perfect example. Nekoda’s mom walked Todd down the aisle because…

…she was also the officiant!

It’s a good idea to be prepared for anything when pets are involved haha!

They nailed the “pretend the building is exploding behind you” walk!

A quick stop at Founder’s for a few drinks was a must!
