rj&arielle | notre dame wedding

Hello, friends!

Today is the wonderful day I get to share our second wedding adventure to the beautiful campuses of Notre Dame and St. Mary’s! This time, to celebrate the marriage of our new friends RJ&Arielle. And boy… are they fantastic. I think this wedding was the fastest wedding booking ever. Arielle and I had a phone conversation that lasted maaaaaybe all of 10 minutes and we were done. :) Which is awesome for a couple reasons. 1) That she trusted me so fully and so quickly! And 2) that she was just that fantastic that I knew we’d get along perfectly after only a few minutes. :) We all finally got to meet on a very chilly day this past winter when we took some engagement photos here in Grand Rapids, and, in between dashing into places to warm up, spent most of our time just laughing a lot. It was perfect.

RJ&Arielle are very intentional people, and I think that’s one of the things we’ve really enjoyed most about them. You can tell how much they care to listen to and love one another well, and similarly, to those around them. They are going to share a beautiful married life together, I have no doubt. It was such an honor to be the ones to photograph such a wonderful celebration!

I hope you all enjoy a peek into their lovely wedding day! The weather could not have been more flawless, and once again, these incredible campuses just blew my mind. Oh… and RJ&Arielle’s obnoxiously good looks didn’t hurt either ;)

All our love to you both. We are grateful to have been a part of your story!
