Alaina + Eric : : Preview Gallery!

Alaina + Eric  : : Friday, June 27, 2008

I have really had some amazing weddings this month!  And to end the busiest wedding month was Alaina and Eric's wedding this past Friday.  The ceremony was held in Holland at Christ Memorial Church followed by a reception at the lovely Grand Haven Golf Club...a venue in which this was my first visit, and I have to say that I was very impressed with the grounds, ballroom and staff...amazing!

Between the ceremony and reception, we stopped at a private beach house along the lakeshore for some pictures with Alaina, Eric and their wedding party.  We thankfully beat the storm that was to hit just after we left the beach and were able to get some fun pictures in the sand.

Alaina and Eric, I wish you both a beautiful marriage!

Garen + Matt : : Preview Gallery!

Saturday, June 21, 2008

Garen and Matt had one of those perfect summer weddings...a destination for most...up at the beautiful Ciccone Vineyard in Traverse City.  With a love for wine, their family and friends, and each other, the combination all came together in one perfectly orchestrated wedding.  The entire day was perfect and made complete by a sunset overlooking the vineyard. Truly extraordinary and one day I was certainly glad to be a part of!  And the dinner...definitely one I was glad to be attending!  They had a six-course wine-pairing dinner that is definitely going on my list of favorites.

The day began when we arrived at the Pavlova Salon in downtown Traverse with mimosa's being served while the girls got their hair and make up done for the day ahead.
So sweet!

The locket Garen carried on her bouquet held pictures of her grandparents.  

I think the first time a bride and groom see each other, dressed complete in their wedding attire, is my favorite part of the day.

I wish I had video of this first dance...Garen and Matt totally had the moves down for their amazing first dance!

Garen and Matt, I wish you two SO much happiness in your lives together. It was a pleasure to be there documenting your day!
