This past fall we had the priveledge of photographing this beautiful wedding in our hometown, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Both Kaija and Levi had their own getting-ready rooms at the Revel Center! These rooms were both located off another spacious room which was great for additional morning guests to relax in. While the two were getting ready with their friends and family, we captured all the beautiful little details of the day; the jewelry, ties, flowers etc. This is always my favorite time on a wedding morning, it's always so peaceful and I love that so much thought goes into choosing every single detail.
Once the bride and groom were dressed and ready, they headed to the arcade inside the Revel Center for their first look. This was such a unique location for this moment and witnessing these two see each other for their first time on their wedding day was so special.
Kaija and Levi wanted to move through as many photos before the ceremony as possible so they could enjoy a few moments of cocktail hour. We took a quick walk down to a large industrial style building, stopped in the underpass, and grabbed a few shots just outside of the Revel Center. We loved this bridal party, they had so much energy and were ready to celebrate their beautiful friends.
We took Kaija and Levi out to a few different places on the property during golden hour for a few couples photos. Once we returned to the party, they proceeded to dance the night away with their family and friends by their sides.
It was truly a wonderful day of celebrating this wonderful couple!
Cheers to you two! We wish you all the love and happiness in the many years to come <3
