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, but Jeannie & Isaiah had so many unique and personal touches throughout the day! Because of that, it always makes the day extra special!

Jeannie & Isaiah are big Doctor Who fans, so there were tiny references throughout the day, like Jeannie’s incredible custom painted shoes!

I love the moments before the ceremony when the couple’s most important people pray over them. Such touching moments!

Since I had to do a lot of research and prep work to make this happen, I was with Jeannie & Isaiah when they were “designing” their sky. And all Jeannie could say was “BIG moon! BIGGER. HUGE!” I’d say they nailed it!!

Jeannie & Isaiah were blending their families, so they had a gumball machine, and each family member had a different colored gumball to mix in!

You can’t have your wedding at the museum and NOT take photos with the carousel!

I don’t remember who said it first, but we all noticed how cool the bridge looked all lit up. So I was beyond thrilled when they were down for a few nighttime photos!
