nate&anna | grand rapids, michigan wedding

I met this beautiful lady named Anna during my college days at Grand Valley, and while we didn’t get to spend a lot of time together, one thing stuck out in my mind – that she was the real deal. She is genuine, smart, incredibly kind-hearted, and obviously – a total babe ;) so when she reached out to me about having Drew and I photograph her wedding, I was seriously excited! And then of course I thought to myself… who is the lucky guy who captured the heart of this wonderful person?

Well, it just so happens that said guy is an equally as incredible human named Nate. Actually, I’m sure had Nate been the one I had met first, this story could have totally been told in reverse. He is also as genuine as they come, hilarious, and makes everyone around him feel so valued.

N&A – I am SO happy your paths crossed and you decided to commit to forever together. You are truly and completely a perfect match, and I mean it fully when I say you will absolutely leave the world a better place by your togetherness. Even if the only thing some get to experience is the amount of laugher your bring to a room :) thank you so much for asking us to photograph your amazing wedding day, and this season of your lives! We had a freakin’ blast, and already are itching for another dance floor party to P.Y.T.

Enjoy a peek into their day, everyone! Grand Rapids was sure looking mighty fine if I do say so myself.
