Hi friends!

It’s a bit of a blustery Tuesday here in the Grand Rapids (sorry I always update you on the weather in my city… but ya see, I love all summer weather and Grand Rapids is neat) and I’m happily cranking out contracts and schedules and photos up to my eyeballs. Ahhh, wedding season. Drew and I just successfully completed our first double header wedding weekend, and I’m feeling equally as pooped as I am accomplished. :) Glad to be sitting at my desk and staring at the lovely faces of the absolute gems I call my clients. Client-friends. Friend-clients. Whatever. You get it.

Well, these two who I get to share with you today are very dear to me. That sassy beautiful ginger is my sweet friend Stephanie, who got me through many early morning Starbucks shifts while we worked together there. She is really something. Honest and genuine as they come, silly as all get out, and, duh, smokin’ hot. I mean… on a scale from 1 to 10, yes. Wow.

Of all the great things I could say about my time knowing this lady and calling her friend, one of the greatest would be that Christopher is the man she’s gonna call husband in just over a month :) You’ll see it in these pictures… he adores her. They are truly and completely perfect for each other. High school sweethearts, at that. I cannot wait to witness them finally committing to forever in front of all their wonderful family and friends.

You two, I love you both so much. Thank you for asking Drew and I the honor of photographing this incredibly sweet time in your lives. We love it more than you’ll ever know :)
