A Rainy Day Wedding - Fallon & Sam

Remember those umbrellas I said I searched far and wide for before Olivia and Eric's wedding? I got to use them! Fallon and Sam had a windy, rainy end of May wedding day, but we made the best of it. Another beautiful sanctuary, some creativity for the wedding party photos and a fun reception made this wedding a great one! Enjoy some of my favorites:

Wedding Designs

I love getting design requests! They don't happen a ton, but when they do I have fun with them.

Kelsey got a hold of me looking for some custom designed items for her May wedding. Ceremony programs, thank yous for her table settings and a little something to go with her wish tree. Her and her fiance chose navy blue and coral for their colors and had an "infinity" theme to their wedding. 

Enjoy!

2015 Weddings Kick-Off

Remember how I mentioned I was able to book 5 weddings for 2015 after Kory and Stacy's? I forgot to mention that the first 4 weddings were literally booked every other weekend starting with the first weekend in May. I think maybe I was a bit crazy booking every other weekend, but I can't say that I didn't enjoy every minute of it!

The first wedding of 2015 was Andrew and Jenn's. Their church was absolutely beautiful and photographing them at a train station was definitely fun. Take a look below at some of my favorites from this special day:

Something about the lighting in this church just made these photos almost magical! I loved the brick walls and the wooden ceiling.

My first wedding - Kory and Stacy

Since this is a brand new blog, I wanted to post some photos from the past year and get a little caught up.

I decided to start with my first wedding. Kory and Stacy are good friends of my husband and I's, Kory and Justin met through the fish breeding hobby, specifically through the Grand Valley Aquarium Club (check out the website, I designed and maintain the website and club newsletter). 

I'll admit, being that it was my first solo wedding, I was rather nervous. After all though, I was pretty pleased with the outcome. Here's just a couple of shots from their special day:

Pere Marquete beach was a beautiful spot to take the bride and groom in Muskegon. The wedding party seemed to enjoy themselves on the beach as well (especially chasing the seagulls).

Knowing that this was an October wedding, I wanted to have a little bit of fun with props and picked up these pumpkins.

Great colors for a gorgeous fall day!

After building my portfolio with this wedding, I was able to book 5 weddings in 2015! So to Kory and Stacy, I can't thank you enough for letting me photograph your special day and helping me book more weddings! Check back on this blog for photos of those weddings.
