Mike & Liz's

Tally it up as another wedding a cried at, and while editing.  My heart was just filled with all the love their friends and family poured out during the day.  There was so much love and admiration for the two of them, both individually and as a couple, and that came along with so many sweet and intimate moments.  

Their day was classic and elegant, a beautiful ceremony at The Cathedral of Saint Andrew in Grand Rapids, Mi, followed by cocktails and the perfect ballroom reception at the Amway Grand Plaza.   Everything was flawless, from Liz's gorgeous Watter's dress (of course made perfect with pockets), to the flowers and details done by Modern Day Floral.  

Liz had one of the sweetest gift exchanges with her mom, a first look with her dad and grandma (I loved their families so much), they had such sweet moments as she walked down the aisle, so many incredible speeches.... I mean, probably everything on a bride's "perfect wedding moments" Pinterest board, and they were all in real life!  I get that pregnancy hormones don't help, but I was all in, and just soaking it up.  My make-up was pretty much non-existent by the end of it all.  

We were just so happy to celebrate with these two, and to be part of such a great day!  If only we could do it all again!

Alex & Derrick

Alex and Derrick had a beautiful garden wedding at Greencrest Manor in Battle Creek, Mi.  It was the epitome of a midwest spring day, and to celebrate it with two of the happiest, most genuine people.  Their day was all about friends and family and tradition (and amazing food), and basically everything your wedding is supposed to be about.  It was the kind of day I wanted to relive all over again before it was even done.  

And oh my word, it's so hard not to include a million shots of the Macedonian bread dance they did at their reception.  It's the second time we've been able to witness one of these, and it's one of the funnest traditions!  I'm pretty much all in on anything the gets everyone dancing (that is not the cupid shuffle).  

So here's to Alex & Derrick and the amazing people they are.
