October 2019 Wedding Date for Briana & Casey

First of all, Casey and Briana’s wedding date is set for October 2019! Whoo Hoo…we LOVE fall weddings, and we also LOVE fall engagements sessions! Therefore, we photographed Casey and Briana’s complimentary engagement session on a gorgeous fall day. Briana and Casey were excited to create unique portraits with Casey’s dirt bike. Thankfully mother nature cooperated by giving us some great light that day. Fur babies were also a cute addition, and they were so good! We enjoy creating customized and creative sessions to reflect the personalities of each of our Brides and Grooms. It’s our hope for every couple to walk away from their engagement session more excited for their wedding day! We are  counting down the months until October 2019…

Austin and Caitlyn ~ Wildwood Farm Fall Wedding

Austin and Caitlyn were married at Wildwood Family Farm in Alto in October!

After photographing Caitlyn’s family for years, we were thrilled to be asked to photograph her wedding day too. What a great location for a fall wedding! Similarly, gorgeous grounds surround the barn in all directions! Austin and Caitlyn were great sports all day, even dodging some raindrops here and there. They weren’t going to let a few sprinkles spoil their dream come true wedding day.

The blushing bride had six bridesmaids stand up with her. Deep red dresses were a perfect match with the deep red barn. Likewise, six groomsmen also stood up with the groom.  Since the groom wore navy, they were also decked out in blue. Because Austin serves our country in the military, Caitlyn wanted to have red, white and blue themes mixed throughout the wedding decor. Therefore, the red barn backdrop was the perfect touch, especially with the groom’s navy blue suit!

Finally, we wrapped up the evening with portraits of the bride and groom under the lights. We wish many years of health and happiness to Austin and Caitlyn!

Most noteworthy was Eli and Megan’s Douglas Walker Wedding Friday April 13th! Adventurous enough to plan outdoor photos for April 13th in Byron Center!  Eli and Megan began their Friday the 13th by getting ready separately. The bride at a family home in Hudsonville, and the groom at a hotel in Grand Rapids. We met at Douglas Walker park in Byron Center for the Bride and Groom’s first look! Eli was eager with anticipation to see his bride, and Megan was calm and collected as she snuck up behind him and wrapped her arms around her future husband.

We strolled around the grounds of Douglas Walker park out to the bridge. In addition, the cute polka dot umbrella helped protect Megan from a few drops of rain. Thankfully the predicted weather didn’t dampen the day. We were able to capture some great images of the cute couple!

Guests arrived and found seats in the cozy cottage style shelter at the park to prepare for the afternoon ceremony. In addition, this gaming bride and groom had interesting touches woven through all their wedding details. From the lightsaber and comic paper floral bouquets, to the creative cake topper. Check out their wedding slideshow here to see all their creative details!

Because the couples brave family endured the chilly April Michigan weather, we could capture the outdoor photos the bride and groom hoped for. Afterwards everyone dashed back inside to enjoy a delicious catered meal and creative cupcakes specially made by the brides family. In addition to these treats, there were other refreshments also. Following was the bride and groom enjoying their first dance. Finally, the evening ended with the guests dancing the night away!
