Deena and Aaron | The Ballroom at McKay Wedding

On the most beautiful spring day Deena and Aaron celebrated their marriage with a reception at The Ballroom at McKay in downtown Grand Rapids. The bride’s dress couldn’t have been more perfect for the drama of that grand ballroom. We had a fantastic time playing with light and creating some stunning dramatic portraits. Hope you love these as much as I do!
