Becky + Matt : : Wedding Preview!

The Details : :

Saturday, May 24, 2008
Calvin College Chapel

The Summary : :
When I shot Matt and Becky's engagement session last year, I knew their wedding was one that I was going to totally enjoy shooting. My intuition was not wrong! Becky, the totally organized and creative bride, had so many personal and fabulous little touches throughout their wedding that I was going crazy with the detail shots. My favorite...the old-fashioned typewriter used by the guests to type out their wishes for the happy couple.

The ceremony was touching, personal and warm. The reception was a mid-day luncheon followed by the family and guests having the opportunity to go outside afterwards to mingle on the lawn. The whole wedding was over by 4 p.m. that day and I almost couldn't bring myself to pack up my gear and head out for the day! Such a perfect and beautiful day by a gracious and loving couple. Cheers Matt and Becky!

Angie, my second-shooter, literally climbed up this tree to shake flower petals all over them like little snowflakes. She's fabulous!
Totally original. Totally loving it.

Barb Hoek of Sweet Cakes has done it again!
And total score for me (and Matt and Becky!), having Aletha from Pearl's Events keeping everything in check again this week.
The toasts were so heartfelt and loving. What wonderful people this couple has in their lives!

And the table arrangements and details were fabulous...all different, all elegant and amazing.

After dinner, the guests sauntered out onto Mangiamo's expansive lawn to enjoy some time outdoors. It was perfect with the chairs set up the sun brightly shining.
And I snuck the couple away for a few pictures by themselves.

Becky is a competitive skater and you can't have a whole team together on one's wedding day and not get some team pictures!
Random adorable kid.

Do these earrings rock or what?!

Here's to a long and happy life together. Enjoy your preview!

Amy- I just can't tell you how much I look forward to seeing your pictures every Sunday night! I even make my husband see them with me because they are too beautiful to view alone! Thank you for all the warmth and love that comes through in your shots. And for all the wonderful memories you are giving to all these couples.
