josh&claire | grand rapids, michigan wedding

I don’t know if it’s that the birds are perfectly in chorus today, or the delightful breeze coming through my front window, or that fact that two people I love so dearly are getting married tomorrow and I’m listening to Ben Rector right now… but I’m feeling extra emotional as I post today!

This wedding day was so beautiful, and not just because is was aesthetically flawless. (Which it was :))

Josh&Claire, you guys. Man. I’m not kidding you when I say there wasn’t a single moment in this day (or in any time that we’ve spent with them) that I didn’t see a sparkle in their eye when they looked at each other. The exhale of the anticipation for this day, and the laughs of ‘is this really happening?!’ were almost tangible. To make it short and sweet – these two are perfect, perfect for each other. And the amount of love, admiration, and respect between them is incredible. Needless to say – it was pretty much the greatest to photograph their wedding day, amidst their seriously fantastic family and friends.

And let’s talk about baller vendors for a minute here, because I’m in love with all of them.

Wedding planner extraordinaire Lindsay Salay from RSVP Events was the greatest. If you’re getting married in GR, please please please hire her! The day went off without a hitch, and she’s just a fantastically funny and delightful human. You’ll love her. And also I want to hang out with her again ;)

City Flats in town here was lovely. Obviously a gorgeous space, but also, the staff and food was also completely fantastic. Andylous Flowers created some of the more beautiful florals I’ve seen. (That held up great all day long!) That mouth-wateringly good looking cake was made by Second Floor Bakery. Party was kept alive by Music Host Entertainment, a classy dude who did a killer job reading the crowd.

Alright, that’s all for now. I’m off to enjoy the rest of this perfect Michigan summer weather while I continue to be emotional about the good things of life while being serenaded by Ben Rector. *sigh*

Enjoy a peek into this lovely day, everyone! We love ya, J&C. Thanks for sharing your amazing day with us :)

All our love,

Alyssa&Drew
