Chris and Christine | Winter Wonderland Wedding | Grand Rapids Art Museum | Grand Rapids, Michigan

FILED IN: Wedding

It was a chilly Friday morning in December and Chris and Christine were preparing for a day that would change their lives forever. They had planned {with the help from the amazing Meagan of Mitten Weddings} a winter wonderland wedding in downtown Grand Rapids which would perfectly mold together their love of the city and their immense love of the Christmas season. As I scurried around the JW Marriott room working on the details that were so meticulously planned I looked out the window. It was happening. There was snow falling. As if their day wasn’t already going to be the most magical day ever, they got the perfect amount of snow flurries added in.

To watch two people who are so obviously right for each other make a commitment in such a grand way will move you. It certainly did for me. Their love is one of mutual respect and joy and laughter. They are silly and lighthearted together and it’s an energy that I want to surround myself in more often. Oh, and I have to mention two more things. 1. Christine’s dad made me cry when he described how Christine would place her hand in his when she was little and how THAT is the thing that he still remembers. Babies grow up so fast and I’ll tell you what, I won’t ever forget his words as I snuggle my girls any chance I get. 2. The Best Man and Matrons of Honor speeches were the most elegant and poised, yet still trickled with humor, speeches I’ve ever heard. You should all give yourselves another hand! Bravo!

Chris and Christine,

Your calm and fun loving nature is so infectious. I have felt so honored to walk along with you through this momentous occasion and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both. Don’t forget, I’m available for travel to Canada for honeymoon and anniversary sessions 😉 😉
