Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer // Kevin & Katie – Married at Frederik Meijer Gardens!

Kevin & Katie enjoyed the most perfect wedding day.  The weather couldn’t have been more enjoyable, they were surrounded by a small group of their closest friends and family, and they finally became husband & wife.  I’m not sure what else could have made it better....

Katie was stunning!

Goofs….having their “first look” with the groom…

Their actual first look…which is still my favorite part of any wedding day!

The Japanese Gardens were such a perfect backdrop for their photos!

The navy suit with the coral tie…..perfect!

They told me they weren’t photogenic, but they were obviously very wrong.

Kevin & Katie’s wedding was super laid back and non-traditional which was so fun!  The two of them walked into the ceremony site, hand in hand, to greet all of their guests.  Love!

Their reception was a small, intimate dinner at Bistro Bella Vita.  We sure felt pretty special being invited to eat with that group.

And, of course, we snuck outside for a few sunset photos to finish the perfect day.  These are ALWAYS my favorite images!
