I shoot a lot of weddings so I meet a lot of people and experience some great love stories. Brandy and Matt’s wedding day was no exception but I knew from the moment I met them last year, they would be one of my favorite couples to work with for 2019, maybe even of all time! Their kind and genuine personalities are the type you instantly gravitate towards and could probably spend the entire time smiling when they’re around. My final meeting with them reconfirmed how much I would enjoy their wedding day! Not only because of Brandy’s amazing attention to detail but because these two were such a JOY to be around! I will also add that they selected some of the nicest people to surround them on their wedding day as their wedding party. I cannot say nothing but great things about all of them! Such great sports with this crazy wedding photographer and her ideas.
Matt and Brandy had their first look at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids under the beautiful willow trees. Their ceremony followed at Heritage Reformed Congregation with a meaningful service. Brandy and Matt set aside time after the ceremony to spend some time at Provin Trails for some just married portraits – probably my favorite photos from the entire wedding day. Afterwards, we headed to Thousand Oaks to close out the evening with their reception. There was a slide show, they played the shoe game and had some sweets at the candy table! The evening ended with a fun sparkler send off and the happy couple drove off into the night. Congratulations Brandy and Matt! Thank you for having us apart of your special day!
