Tips & Ideas

Quinn and Olivia are finally married! They planned a beautiful spring wedding back in May….but you know what happened (ahem…Covid)….plans changed. Fast forward through planning almost three weddings later and they had the most perfect day that they always were planning to have. They switched venues and celebrated their wedding with their closest family and friends at Apple Blossom Chapel & Garden in Fennville. It was a hot day….but it was a day that was definitely worth celebrating!!

Olivia was a very special bride to me. She was the very first bride who was also a senior that I photographed (9 years ago!!)

It can’t be a 2020 wedding without having a Mr & Mrs set of masks….

Their tented wedding was nestled into the trees where air was able to flow through. Everyone was able to socially distance as much as they wanted while playing yard games next to the tent. What a fun time everyone had!

The favorite part of any wedding day of mine is when I get to sneak out with the bride and groom for sunset photos. All of the stress has melted away, they are finally married and have had a chance to celebrate with their loved ones.

Just a few last moments to soak in what just happened quietly together – they got married!! – before ending the night celebrating in a big way!

Quinn & Olivia – Congratulations!!! I hope your day was everything that you dreamed it would be and maybe even a bit more. It was so special being there along for the journey of planning, re-planning and finally capturing the actual day. I hope you love these photos forever!

  22. […] Olivia’s wedding day was H-O-T but it was so fun! We started the day off by getting ready at a nearby Airbnb. Olivia put her dress on at her venue, Apple Blossom Chapel & Garden, in their cute little chapel on the grounds. This location worked well because there were three or four windows on both sides of the room. The walls were also white! Yay! […]
