Mike and Jenny are probably the kindest and warmest couple I’ve ever met. Seriously. From the moment I sat down with Jenny and her sister to talk about the wedding, I knew Jenny was going to be an absolute delight to work with.
Jenny has an effortlessly relaxed demeanor, so it made perfect sense that her wedding consisted of a gorgeous, neutral color palette and beautiful, natural elements. And the only place to have such a wedding, the Downtown Market in Grand Rapids. From the mini topiary escort cards to the hand placed succulents at every guest’s place setting, each design element was curated to represent Jenny and Mike’s style and personality.
The couple was married in the airy greenhouse under the dreamy chuppah they built, with hundreds of fairy lights twinkling high above while the dusky autumn sun set. With an amazing hora dance and a Matron on Honor speach that filled every eye with tears, this day was filled with so many sweet memories.
Jenny and Mike, thank you for welcoming me into your life and family with open arms and for allowing my team and I to be part of your beautiful wedding! We wish you so much happiness and all our love to you as you start this wonderful new life together!
