Elizabeth + Blair : : Wedding Preview

Elizabeth and Blair were married on a truly perfect spring day. With threatening weather forecasts, we all kept our eyes on the sky during our time in downtown Coopersville, but needn't have worried at all because the day was absolutely perfect with partly overcast skies...a photographer's dream!

Some of my favorite parts of the day were when Blair and Elizabeth saw each other for the first time on the train tracks and when a city worker came up afterwards to ask if we would like the keys to get inside the train (are you kidding me?!). It was also a totally great day of being around such a fun and energetic group.

Elizabeth has an amazing eye and not only put together the flowers herself, but also designed the programs and had some truly amazing and personal touches for her wedding. And her dress and her necklace were absolutely stunning!

I was totally in love with her hairstyle and the simple headband tiara she used.

This bride is truly talented....look at those flowers!

While we were lucky not to see the rain, Elizabeth was totally prepared with these big, dramatic black umbrellas and we simply couldn't let them go to waste.

The groomsmen received these beer steins with their names engraved on them. How could we not have these in a picture?!

This vintage look is just too tempting with these train tracks.

Elizabeth designed and made these programs for their wedding ceremony. I love the design...simply perfect.

And this totally impressed me! Blair and Elizabeth blew up this picture from their engagement session this past March for their guests to sign. How perfect this picture worked for this!

Congratulations Elizabeth and Blair! Blessings on your marriage!
