The Goei Center Wedding, Grand Rapids MI

I could go on and on about these two.  I've always had a little secret friend crush on them.  They modeled for me for school projects before they were even engaged, and my fiancé and I got to know them throughout our college years.  So when they asked me to be a part of their wedding, I was swooning.  They're just the coolest humans with the most precious love story!  Watch their proposal video made by the super talented Hayden Goldsworthy here:

Spending the entire wedding weekend with them, their families, and their bridal party was amazing.  From ice cream the night before the wedding to waking up and getting ready alongside the bridesmaids, I really believe these images are better because of it.  The more I get to know my couples and their people, the more fun and relaxed and personal the photos become!  And every part of this day was beautiful.  Her black diamond and other details, their private first look, those bridesmaid hoops, the basketball court.  They made their day so unique to their personalities without even trying very hard, and it was perfect.  Also, I instantly fell in love with Grand Rapids, and shooting in urban locations is my new jam.  So, future brides....let's shoot in the city!

These two have such a beautiful love - for each other and for their family and friends - and I think it's evident in these images.  It was such an honor to document their day!
