Amway Grand Plaza Wedding – Les & Julie

Grand Rapids, MI – Winter Wedding

With Les having spent many stays at the beautiful Amway Grand Plaza on business trips, it made sense that he and Julie should have their wedding reception in the lovely Ford room after their Catholic ceremony in Grandvile (St Pius X).  

Surrounded by family and close friends, these two joined in marriage in a lovely ceremony before heading over to celebrate with a lovely meal and even little dancing.  

Knowing that there was a key football game playing on this November evening, the staff accommodated their request to have a television brought in to the Ford room during the fun so those interested could stay up on the score. As always, the service was great and the food was wonderful.

Fricano’s on Muskegon Lake Wedding – Muksegon, MI

Tell us about your venue and why you chose it

The Event Center at Fricano’s was a beautiful space. The wood beams had such a classy feel, and the old timey bar was a huge sell. The staff was so friendly and their food and drink options were affordable, and delicious.

What fun/interesting activities or traditions did you include in your day?

My Mother-inlaw gave me a six-pence in my shoe that has been passed around people and family who’s gotten married. That was really special. We also danced to recess out of the ceremony to “Forever” by Chris Brown based on the scene in The Office at Jim and Pam’s wedding where they all dance down the aisle to that song. 

Tell us about the dress. Why did you love it?

When we walked into the salon all the bridesmaids saw it hanging on the mannequin and at different times while we waited for our appointment said “Sarah, that dress would look perfect on you.” It was even in my size. And it was a ballgown without being too over the top or poofy, and it was lacy and beaded. Just the perfect combination.

Was there a theme for the wedding? What was it and why?

We just really wanted a romantic day. I think that weddings should be, it is a day to celebrate love. So I definitely wanted pink, but I didn’t want it to be too girly because it’s my husband’s day too. So we did Navy Blue, Pink and Grey. And the look of the venue and centerpieces all reflected a romantic feel for the day.

Any advice for other couples?

Get a good photographer who will make you feel comfortable and will do a good job capturing your day. It is so worth it. I also would say don’t compare things or worry what other people will think. Get whatever you want for your special day and everything will just be good. And get good friends to stand up with you to support you and help with the things that go wrong on your big day.

Tell us about your experience with Brenda Hoffman Photography

Brenda is amazing. She helped us pose in pictures to make us feel comfortable and at ease (and look good.) And then when the events for the wedding came around she was like a fly on the wall, I almost forgot she was there. But she was able to capture extremely specific moments that I can remember exactly when the picture was taken because of my facial expression and the high quality of the picture. She even let us design our own wedding album and pick the pages and pictures to go in. She is the epitome of professional and talented.

What were your most memorable moments?

My sister’s were co-maid of honors and they did a hilarious job on their speech. And dancing with my friends throughout the night was so much fun. Honestly the whole day went by in such a blur, I just remember everything going smoothly, having fun with my friend and family, and marrying my husband.

Boatwerks Wedding | Holland, MI

Beautiful, Elegant, White-on-White Wedding Decor

A gorgeous fall day greeted Michael and Alyssa for their wedding day.  Their Catholic ceremony as at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Holland, MI followed by a reception at the lakeside venue, Boatwerks.  From start to finish the day was full of laughter (and a few shenanigans!).  

Both Michael and Alyssa had large groups to support them on their wedding day.  Being in fraternity and sorority organizations has that affect.  🙂  This made the day fun and extra meaningful by all the love and support they had.  

Alyssa and Michael shared a sweet first look and just before entering the church, Alyssa and her dad shared a tender moment when daddy first saw his little girl in her wedding dress.  

Jamie and the Chalet team did an amazing job decorating the already beautiful venue at Boatwerks.  The white-on-white theme was simply stunning.  The staff at Boatwerks didn’t miss a beat with the food service and any other needs.  Debra did a great job with the gals makeup.  All around it was a fabulous day!

Shoreline Inn Wedding | Muskegon, MI

Beautiful, Sunny Fall Day with Lakeside Ceremony

Amy and Randal’s day was chuck full of wonderful touches that made their day completely their own and very unique.  Randal’s suit jacket was lined with a space scene, he had pi socks, Amy’s flowers were custom made, their place cards were printed on a 3d printer and incorporated cats (Amy’s love) and the Android dude (Randal’s job).  These were just some of the things that made their day very personal to them!

During their vows Randal promised not to move to Mars (because, ya know, that may be possible in our liftetime).  They also share a glass unity ceremony.  

The Shoreline Inn was a perfect setting for their festivities.  The ceremony was lakeside on the beautiful sunny day with the reception right there, as well.  The food was fabulous, the entertainment was on point and a good time was had by all who joined to celebrate the marriage of Amy and Randal.  Best wishes to you both!

Robinettes & A Private Barn

Nick and Sarah decked out their own private barn for the big wedding day celebration.  The day included a ceremony at Thousand Oaks Golf Club, wedding party photos at Robinette’s Orchard, an amazing grand entrance involving a vintage Ford F100, and even authentic Polka Dancing at the reception.

The guests enjoyed authentic Polish food, dancing and even a very large bonfire out back.  It was a relaxed but very joyous atmosphere as these two celebrated becoming husband and wife and began their life-long journey together.

Frederik Meijer Gardens | The B.O.B. Eve Nightclub Wedding

Grand Rapids, Michigan Wedding

Jennifer and Jordan didn’t intend to have a wedding in Grand Rapids, MI at first.  Actually, their intent up until a few weeks prior to the wedding was to have a lakeside wedding.  Due to a few things, their last minute changes turned out to be an epicly good choice!  The Frederik Meijer Gardens was a perfect place for the sunny September wedding and the vibe at the Eve Nightclub at the B.O.B. in downtown Grand Rapids was a perfect fit for these two gorgeous and incredibly kind people.  

Jen’s flower crown and form fitting dress were a wonderful complement to her gorgeous hair and welcoming smile.  The cake and dessert bar by Ryke’s was just as she had envisioned.  The staff at both the Meijer Gardens and The Eve made the day a pleasure.  Well done, team.

Grand Rapids MI | Modern Engagement Session

Downtown Grand Rapids, MI | Riverside Park

Alex and Anna are getting next year at the Grand Rapids Art Museum and were looking for engagement photographs that were not only representative of who they are together as a couple, but also had a bit of an modern, artistic feel to them.

For the first part of their session we spent time at Riverside park where they frequently spend time with their beloved dogs.  The fall colors had not yet turned and the overcast sky really help bring out the colors of the gorgeous park.  

Downtown Grand Rapids provided the more modern look that they were hoping to incorporate, as well.  Walking around the city provides many opportunities to create some wonderful memories…and art for their walls.  Enjoy!

Fall Engagement Session | Hoffmaster State Park

Muskegon, Michigan

This blog post is directly from Rachel, the bride.  Enjoy!

How did you two meet?

We went to the same high school (Muskegon Catholic Central) so we knew of each other but did not really talk until Rachel’s Junior Year and Jake’s senior year. During Spring Break of 2014, we both attended the annual mission trip our school put on. During the week, we began talking and getting to know each other. When we returned from the trip, I asked him to prom and he said yes! A week after prom we began dating, and the rest is history.

Tell us about the proposal!

(Told from Rachel’s Perspective): Before I tell this story there are a few things to know. One is that Jake never uses social media. Like ever. Another is that prior to our engagement, he had not changed his profile picture since 2015. A third is that whenever we can, we go to Hoffmaster State Park. So, Jake convinced me to make a trip back to our hometown this past August. We both attend school and stay in our college town during the summers to work. Anyways, we made the trip back for the beginning part of the week. On Tuesday, August 21st Jake told me he wanted to go get new profile pictures for his social media. So that evening we went out to dinner with our group of friends. After dinner some of our friends we drove out to Hoffmaster with a nice camera to get some pictures. After hiking out to our favorite spot where we carved our initials in a tree on our first anniversary and put tally marks every year after and enjoying the view, when I turned around Jake was on one knee and asked me to marry him!

Where will you be getting married?

St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Spring Lake

Tell us about the engagement session experience

The engagement session was honestly amazing. We aren’t the most PDA, affectionate couple, but Brenda was able to capture the love that we share in the images. The prompts ranged from funny to sweet and Brenda was able to capture true, authentic moments. Tt is one of our favorite memories in our relationship and we cannot wait until she photographs our wedding!

What are you most looking forward to about being married?

We are looking forward to just all the moments life brings us. We are excited to build our future together. We are excited for the good times

Grand Haven Beach Senior Portraits

A drive across Michigan – Well worth the trip

Hannah had vacationed in Grand Haven, MI many times while growing up so the fun little beach town made perfect sense for her high school senior portraits.  We first did some in-studio ballet portraits to highlight one of her hobbies.  After that we went down to marina and finally out to the iconic lighthouse, pier and beach which draws so many visitors to the Grand Haven area.  We we blessed with an amazing sunset.  Grand Haven does not disappoint!
