Riverside Receptions- Chelsea and Andrew

Riverside Receptions Etc., LLC
Centreville, MI


Congratulations Chelsea and Andrew!! What a gorgeous celebration by the river! What a venue too! This place is amazing--- and it's all together in one spot!

Clesea and Andrew met while working together at Old Burdicks in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Both were attending Western Michigan University.  After a while apart from each other, they became friends, and their first concert was Coheed and Cambria at Pierre’s in Fort Wayne.  Their first dance is actually to one of their songs. In 2015, the couple moved to Austin, Texas and have recently relocated again to Stillwater, OK.

They were engaged at the Cliffs of Mohr, in Ireland, on May 2, 2016, during the middle of a two week European adventure. Due to its location, the weather at the Cliffs is normally very cold, rainy, and windy, but on that day , the sun was shining. However, it started pouring about 15 minutes after the proposal. It was perfect.

This day was absolutely gorgeous! A special thank you to Elyse, the wonderful wedding planner from Posh Petals! http://lookatthebiggerpicture.com/blog/posh-petals-grand-rapids

I love working with Caedy Convis, my second photographer!! She is brilliant, fun, talented, and a beautiful person. Thank you, Caedy, for the great photos and always supporting me during my crazy wedding seasons!

Bay Pointe Inn- Ashleigh and Eoin

Shelbyville, MI
Boathouse at the Bay Pointe Inn

Congratulations to Ashleigh and Eoin! These two met through mutual friends and were together for three years before Eoin proposed. They were in Nashville for another wedding, in front of a waterfall, with friends, when Ian asked the question. They had it all planned and it was a complete surprise to Ashleigh.


My favorite part of this day was right when I walked in. I walked into chaos and a hubbub of family and friends. It was awesome. There were wedding favors and décor spread out on the floor, flowers strewn all over, with aunts and uncles running here and there with shirts and ties and such, everyone helping each other.  Uncles were sitting quietly, putting together flowers and peacock boutonnieres. Everyone was staying together at this amazing boathouse on the water. It was full of love and sunshine.

This was the weekend that was 100 heat index in September. The flower girl switched to her bathing suit and went swimming. I wish I had thought of that.

I'm so excited for these two beautiful people! What an amazing venue on the lake! It was a great celebration. Enjoy the preview:
