Joy and Chip | West Michigan Wedding

Joy and Chip are a delight to photograph. After their engagement session, I knew the wedding would be such a treat and it didn’t disappoint. The weather gave us a bit of worry but the rain held out and we were able to get all the wonderful outdoor portraits we were hoping for. Even a quick stop at a favorite right on the way, Blandford Nature Center. The ceremony was held at the groom’s family church, Brisolwood Bible, and the brunch to follow was held at the Allendale Fire Station. It was a sweet and simple West Michigan Wedding with lots of love and so many smiles!

Congrats to the happy couple! I hope you have the best trip and I can’t wait to share the rest of your images with you! Thank you for having me be a part of your day, it was perfect.
