A Spring Wedding at The Rutledge, Grand Rapids, MI // Katie and Joe
First, I want to start by saying this wedding was AWESOME! Phi and I had the best time capturing this wonderful couple, all the small and big moments throughout the day. We loved how laid back yet put together everything was, the day really seemed to be completely seamless. Even the on and off rain we received felt like a little gift, I know rain on a wedding day can be disappointing, but this bridal party helped us use it to our advantage and I think it added a little extra romance to this wedding day!
Katie and Joe, it was a real pleasure capturing your wedding day. We wish you all the love and happiness in the many years to come!
