Amy & Varun | St. Cecilia Music Center

A gorgeous winter day for Amy and Varun as they became husband and wife at the beautiful St. Cecilia Music Center. If you’ve never been inside St. Cecilia I recommend going and visiting this hidden Grand Rapids gem in person, what a place!

So many sweet moments and lovely scenes on this day. So grateful to have been a part of this story. It’s clear to see from the moment you meet them that Amy and Varun were made for each other. Here are a few favorites from their day!

Congrats to the beautiful couple!
