Olivia & Derek | Redeemer OPC Wedding

Olivia and Derek were wed last month at Redeemer OPC in Ada. It was a day that threatened rain every hour but we only really saw a little of that, and we got to use it to makes some fun rain portraits. The couple had originally planned on having their reception downtown GR but as is 2020’s way, that changed. They had a lovely tent reception on the grounds of the church and it was perfect.  It was a wonderful event full of love. I’m delighted to share a few favorite moments of the day with you!

Congrats Olivia and Derek!! So wonderful to be a part of your day!
