Jeff and Nicole had a fall Verdonis Wedding in Muskegon! It was a great indoor location that accommodated both the ceremony and reception.
We started the day at the Holiday Inn in Muskegon for their getting ready portion of the day. Jeff and Nicole each had a suite on different floors. It was a crazy windy and rainy day for their wedding, but that didn’t stop us from having a great day! All the pictures were still held outside. even in the rain! Nicole’s mother found the cutest umbrellas online and ordered them “just in case”. I am so glad she did!
The bus picked us up at the hotel to bring us to our first location, Heritage Memorial Garden in Muskegon. The gazebo provided a great covering to stay out of the rain! Jeff and Nicole shared their “first look” under the gazebo, then we proceed with family portraits.
Our next stop was Muskegon Union station, the old train depot. There was just enough of an overhang on the roof that it kept us out of the rain. We were also able to grab a group shot under the awning where the passengers would wait!
We then attempted to go to the beach… while we pulled off a couple pictures, the rain and wind was overtaking us! So, on to the ceremony we went.
The staff at Verdonis had the venue ready and waiting for Jeff and Nicole’s ceremony. They said their vows in front of the beautiful fireplace, under dim lights and a room full of their loved ones. Their ceremony was followed by a great party! Nicole and her father had a fun choreographed dance that they prepared for the crowd. It was fun to see them dance, laugh, and have fun. Make sure you check out the slideshow to see more of their pictures!
