stacey + ryan | lake michigan wedding

These two … I can not express to you how lucky we were to be a part of their day! Sweet, sincerely kind, genuine, and overall amazing people, Stacey and Ryan were a blessing to work with!

The wonderful thing about this event is the bride and groom’s desire to not only have the most amazing party for their family and friends but that it also be very personal. They definitely achieved all of that. The ceremony took place overlooking Lake Michigan on the groom’s grandmothers property. The reception was at the groom’s mother’s home. They even stopped off for photos at the family hardware store and farm. All meaningful moments that were so amazing!

Some of my favorite details …. oh how to choose … the hand-painted cake (stunning!), the lovely rosette linen on the cake table, the beautiful vintage china (seriously beautiful!), and the bride’s gorgeous gown! Those are just a few. What a fun and beautiful day!

kelly + joe | spring lake country club

Rachel and team were so lucky to work with Kelly and Joe on their big day! It was perfect from start to finish … from the fantastic getting ready location to the stunning Spring Lake Country Club reception and everything in between!

There were so many lovely details on this day but if I had to choose a few favorites they would be the bride’s gorgeous ball gown; the navy, blush and gold color palette; the tall dramatic centerpieces at the reception; the bride’s bouquet (stunning!); and the gorgeous hand lettered seating cards! Every single detail was beautiful and everything was captured so perfectly by West Michigan Photography!

We wish all the best to Kelly and Joe! XO
