Dresha and Mustaf // A Romantic Autumn Wedding at Downtown Market, Grand Rapids

Dresha and Mustaf had the most beautiful autumn wedding at the Downtown Market in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We started the day at The Courtyard Marriot where Dresha and the girls were getting ready. Then we headed over to the ceremony site where we witnessed, alongside family and friends, their beautiful love for one another.

The wedding cake!

The newlyweds share their first dance!

Towards the end of their song, the DJ changed the music so they could do a Traditional Albanian dance.

Many family members and friends joined them on the dance floor for more Traditional dancing.



We had the best time capturing Dresha and Mustaf's wedding. We wish them both so much love and happiness in the years to come.
