Grand Rapids Wedding, Cheryl and Marcus

Amway Grand Plaza Grand Valley Alumni House

Congratulations to Cheryl and Marcus!!

What an amazing and sweet couple! They met their last year of college through mutual friends. Many friends had graduated, so Cheryl and Marcus started spending more time together. After being chased by Marcus for almost a year, they graduated and did the long distance thing for a couple years.  Marcus lived in Ohio and Indiana to pursue his teaching career, and Cheryl stayed in Michigan and started working in Grand Rapids. After almost two years, he realized he couldn't stand being without her everyday and moved to Grand Rapids. He proposed at a friend's cottage up north last May. He asked her to come sit on the dock and started talking about how they had been together for five years... and then he pulled a ring out of his pocket.

My favorite part about this wedding was traipsing around Grand Rapids on such a beautiful day with just the two of them. It was so peaceful before the big party!! This day was so fun.

I am honored to document their story.

Here is a little sneak peek of their day....

Special thanks to my lovely second shooter, the talented and beautiful, Katie Mollon. Thank you to Romeyne Cloud of Mosaic Space!! You ladies rock and I love what you have done with this gorgeous venue. Also, I highly recommend Sean Boney for your DJ services. This guy is fun and used to be a wedding photographer, so he was so good to me! No laser dots for the dance. Love that. ;)
