Alicia + Tyler

Alicia and Tyler had a stunning February wedding.  One of my favorite venues in Grand Rapids has always been The Cheney Place.  Alicia and Tyler's style and personalities perfectly complimented the style of The Cheney Place.  With a February wedding in Michigan there is always the chance off not having great weather to do pictures outside, but this venue provides so many diverse options inside.  This warm inviting wedding was perfectly set in this vintage and stylish venue.  I also had the opportunity to collaborate with Laurenda Marie Photography and together we were able to capture the perfect summary of this beautiful day with the exact blend of photography that this couple was looking for. 

It is clear by these photos that the joy and love between these two and their friends and family is contagious.  There is something very special when you see a strong connection between the mother and father of the bride, because you know their marriage will help to shape and encourage their daughters marriage as well.  I will never forget the moment when I looked across the dance floor during the reception and saw Alicia's parents dancing under the perfectly lit spot on the dance floor.  Their love for each other and for their daughter was celebrated throughout the whole day.  

Alicia and Tyler were fantastic to work with, it is obvious that this day was something they had worked hard to plan perfectly. I know I can speak for Laurenda and myself in sharing how thankful we are for the opportunity to be a part of it.  The way that they smiled when they were together that day lit the room and made the whole day special and memorable.  Congratulations Alicia and Tyler, I can't wait to see what is in store for your future together.
