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:

WINTER WONDERLAND WEDDING- MCKAY BALLROOM

Congratulations to Lexi and Josh!! What a beautiful winter wonderland wedding! It was gorgeous— just as gorgeous as these two.

They met through Bumble, but actually met a few years prior. Two years ago, they had their first date at Maru, in East Lansing, and have been together ever since. On their one-year anniversary, Josh set up the surprise proposal. They went on a carriage ride that stopped on the Blue Bridge. It was decorated with rose petals, candles, and wooden blocks of their initials. After Lexi said yes, they were dropped off at the Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck, where their families were waiting.

You can see that the Blue Bridge was in full view at the JWMarriott, where Lexi was getting ready. I also loved that we got to stroll through where we had their engagement session! If you missed that, please check it out here:
