MCKAY TOWER WEDDING

Grand Rapids, MI
Fountain Street Church
McKay Ballroom, McKay Tower

Congratulations Zac and Elyse! These two are hilarious. They keep me on my toes. The very first time I met them, I knew their sense of humor would bring some fun to their engagement and wedding photos.

These two actually met through Tinder. They were laughing together for two years before Zac proposed, on Maui. His brother lives there, and when they were visiting, he popped the question at sunset. What’s funny is that it had rained the whole trip EXCEPT for that time when Zac proposed. That’s a pretty clear sign, I’d say.

The big day was full of laughter as well. The day started at Hampton Inn and Suites, then on to the ceremony at Fountain Street Church, and the reception at MacKay Ballroom. It was a beautiful March wedding in Michigan! We were grateful for some sun and it felt so good to have some time downtown with the bridal party! Zac and Elyse even snuck away for a few breathers with beautiful scenery along the way.

Mr. and Mrs., thank you so much for choosing me to document your story. Please enjoy the preview:

STUDIO D2D -LISA AND JEFF

STUDIO D2D EVENT CENTER
GRAND RAPIDS, MI


Congratulations Lisa and Jeff!  What a beautiful day in downtown Grand Rapids! This was such an elegant and laid back celebration! Lisa and Jeff met at a construction management class. They were together for two and a half years before Jeff and the kiddos proposed. They bought land for their new house and while taking the kids there to check things out, they all got on their knees and asked, "Will You Marry Us?"

My favorite parts about their day... Definitely the humorous poses that both Jeff and Lisa would surprise me with, making me laugh the whole day. Jeff's face when they entered the reception to celebrate with their nearest and dearest was hysterical.  I loved the closeness of the families. It was a mish mash of little girls with grandmas and grandpas, uncles, aunts... I LOVED that they somehow got The Killer Flamingos to play! How cool was that?! That was a blast from my past, on the east side. I also was bent over laughing at the uncles dancing. The couple at the end of this preview... Their faces! Fearlessly gettin' down! It was hilarious.

Since I gotta give it to amazing women entrepreneurs, please make sure you check out Lisa's shop, https://www.ellembee.com for creative fashion and jewelry finds! 

Best wishes to your wonderful new family! Thank you so much for choosing me to document your story.
