Jacob & Che | Backyard Wedding Heritage Hill

I hope we keep the backyard wedding trend after the world starts to go back to some normalcy. They are sweet, intimate, and personal. I love them! Jacob and Che were wed in the backyard of a family friend’s house, just down the road from the home Che grew up in the lovely Heritage Hill neighborhood of Grand Rapids.  It was an absolutely gorgeous day and I’m delighted to share some favorites from the day.
