THE CHENEY PLACE
GRAND RAPIDS, MI
Congratulations Melanie and Dustin! What a beautiful celebration! These two met in college, living on the same floor in the dorm, which was mostly guys. They have been together for 13 years!!
Dustin proposed after dinner one night, walking around downtown Grand Rapids.
Both Melanie and Dustin are very laid-back souls, which is why this day was so easy-going. The whole chi-bang was in one spot. I ADORE this venue! The Cheney Place is full of vintage chic finds, from furniture to chandeliers, to little touches. Guests chatted upstairs for cocktail hour on beautiful couches, with old colorful pianos, dressers, and unique touches. Sippin’ cocktails underneath chandeliers and lanterns. It was so beautiful.
My favorite part of the day was when everyone rushed to dance! I have never seen a better reception! Everyone was so calm and collected throughout the day and then it was like an explosion hit and people had to MOVE! I think everyone was out on the dance floor. It was so much fun.
Melanie and Dustin, thank you for choosing me to document your story. I am honored.
