A Romantic Late Summer Wedding at The Kalamazoo Country Club // Riley & Ben

Updated: Mar 4, 2022

Phi and I had the pleasure of meeting Riley and Ben earlier this year for their engagement session. They are the sweetest couple and both have the biggest hearts. Their wedding day was so elegant and romantic, something straight out of a fairytale and we were lucky enough to capture it. <3

I love photographing wedding day details. Everything from the dress to the invites; there is always so much thought and planning that goes into these fine details I believe it's such and important part of the wedding day to capture.

The ceremony was held at Greenwood Reformed Church in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Surrounded by their closest family and friends they shared their vows and said "I do." There were so many beautiful moments throughout this service. We really enjoyed capturing these moments.

The reception was held at The Kalamazoo Country Club in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This was a gorgeous venue, the guests enjoyed cocktail hour in a separate room and also had the option to use the large outdoor patio. The actual ballroom was spacious and elegant. The perfect place for this romantic wedding.

Shortly after the bridal parties grand entrance the maid and matron of honor along with the best man gave heartwarming speeches about this wonderful couple.

This September sunset at the country club was so stunning we had to get Riley and Ben out for just a few photos. This is always such a great time of the day for the bride and groom to just reflect on their day up to that point.

Ben and Riley had a beautiful wedding cake and delicious doughnuts for their wedding day dessert.

After the newlyweds cut their cake they went right into their first dance...

With parent dances to follow. Both Riley's dad and Ben's mom shared a little bit about their parent songs and the significance of that chosen piece, which we though was pretty sweet.

Once the formal dances concluded the floor opened to all the guests! So many wonderful memories were made laughing and dancing.


Phi and I sincerely loved capturing Ben and Riley's wedding day. We wish them all the best in the many years to come!
