a place full of GOOD PEOPLE AND amazing love
A Rose & Navy Wedding | Grand Haven, MI
Will made the best of first impressions on Tiffany: she thought he was perfect from the start. They met when they were 14, so in many ways, they grew up together. Will texts her every day to make sure everything is going well, and if it’s not, he’s her biggest shoulder to lean on, and ready with a goofy smile or joke to cheer her up. Even though Tiffany is never on time, Will is happy to wait, and would do anything for his bride. This caring, compassion groom looks forward to a beautiful, active future growing together as well as fishing, traveling, and watching sports.
Tiffany can have a warm conversation with anyone, and that’s one of Will’s favorite things about her. Her spunk and sass combined with the way she cares deeply for others, completely endears Will to the love of his life. Tiffany almost reads his mind. She knows what he’s thinking and always knows what he needs. Tiffany has fallen even more in love with Will since December 12, 2017, the day he asked her to be beside him forever. As they step into the next chapter of life together, they’re both excited about starting a family and keep making amazing memories every day.
On what would be a day to remember, I was greeted in the salon by a lovely wedding party. One bridesmaid proclaimed, “We’re going to be friends.” And that’s exactly how I want to make my brides feel: like we’re good friends. Tiffany never stopped smiling the entire day.
The wedding ceremony was very heartfelt and completely focused on the couple and their love for one another. The pastor even shared what each loved about the other. Husband and wife walked back down an aisle adorned with dozens of gorgeous fresh flowers. The reception was just as enchanting with columns wrapped with incredible greens. I was obsessed.
Tiffany and Will, it was a complete pleasure to be part of your joy-filled day!

It’s always an honor to be part of a bride and groom’s wedding day story. But it’s an absolute joy when it’s my own family. My cousin, Brooke, has always had a sweet and bubbly disposition, with a sassy demeanor, and always ready with a hug.
She and Kody are best friends, each other’s support system, and he always makes Brooke laugh. When Brooke first met her future groom, she thought he was the cutest boy in class, and loved that he had a hint of mischief. Brooke knew that when Kody was ready to propose, he’d be terrible at keeping it a secret…and he was. But he was a master at the proposal itself, asking for Brooke’s hand in marriage right in their elementary school parking lot making it what Brooke calls “the best night ever.” (On the other hand, he kept her surprise 25th birthday party plans under lock and key! Go figure.)
Kody loves how Brooke listens to him, even his ramblings. Her kindness inspires him every day to be a better person, and he’s completely endeared by how goofy she gets when she’s tired. They are so excited about “doing life” together and growing a family…with some fur babies to start. Brooke knows Kody will be the best dog dad and eventually, an amazing father to their own children.
This bride is truly loved. Brooke was surrounded by her wedding party in the hair salon, chatting in joyful anticipation of what the day would hold. Brooke was so excited and while she was getting makeup done with her momma (my Aunt Vicki), her dad (my Uncle Tommy) thoughtfully called to check to make sure his girls had everything they needed for this amazing event.
Brooke nearly floated down the aisle to her groom on Saturday, with bright eyes, full hearts, and a church bursting with adoring family and friends, they began their new adventure. They know the road will be bumpy at times, but because they were best friends first and have such a solid foundation, they know they will rock whatever life brings them.
Brooke, girl, I can’t tell you how touched and blessed I am that you included me in this process. From reaching out to me about the best place to find those perfect bridal shoes and the wording for your reception invitations, to the best place to stand at the altar for photos, every moment was such a privilege.
Hugs to you both and cheers to this exciting new chapter!
A Blush & Slate Blue Wedding | Muskegon, Michigan
Katy loved that Zane was an old-fashioned good guy from the moment they met, as he assisted her at work with her newly broken foot. For selfless Zane, it was a no-brainer. Katy was so stunning, it was as if time stood still and she was the only person on Earth. Feelings grew from there as Zane became Katy’s fierce supporter, loving her caring and selfless spirit. Together they laugh at their inside jokes and share exciting adventures with childlike anticipation.
On their early spring wedding day, Katy walked down the aisle to her soul mate, confident that their relationship that had started as friendship, had become an unbreakable foundation for their marriage. At the first glance of his bride beaming as she glided down the aisle, Zane’s breath caught in his throat and the world fell away, exactly as it did the very first time he ever laid eyes on Katy.
It was such a joy watching your mutual dreams come true on your wedding day! Despite the crazy cold, rainy April weather, Katy and Zane, you created the most enchanting photos in the greenhouse, surrounded by gorgeous flowers, perfect lighting, and no rain!
As I watched you both light up the crowded dance floor, I felt extra blessed to be a part of your earlier story, Katy, when I was your small group leader at church. I can’t wait to witness the exciting next steps in your already beautiful journey.
