Kelly + Jake / Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer / Grand Rapids Downtown Market

Kelly+Jake. Jake+Kelly. These two, their laughter, and their love is just so contagious.

There were some true highlights from their wedding day this past December. Their entire ceremony radiated joy+love and a WHOLE lot of laughter…they were laughing, and crying and we all were too. These two have such sweetness together, literally (Jake proposed at Furniture City Creamery and we even stopped their between the ceremony and reception for a cone).

Enjoy a few highlights from the day and a list of their incredible vendor team that helped make it all come together /
(if you all have been following this blog for some time, I realize I have not been good about giving a detailed vendor list. I recently asked on my Facebook and Instagram if you all still even read blogs and many commented that they loved having a round-up of who helped this all come together. So…here you go!)

Krishanna + Jay / Anniversary Shoot / St. John USVI / Destination Wedding Photographer

It’s hard to even know where to start on this post. Jeff + I photographed Krishanna+Jay’s wedding in the fall of 2015 on the tropical island of St. John. We adored and loved these two souls. Had the opportunity to get to know them more throughout the time we spent celebrating their wedding last year. And then parted ways.
Then, this past spring when they were visiting family here in Michigan, Krishanna reached out and wondered if we might want to have a drink together. It turned into a night of cocktails on our balcony, dinner at our favorite spot down the street and merrily catching up and forging a friendship that demanded we spend more time together. Fast forward to this past fall when Krishanna and Jay mentioned they were heading back to the scene of their destination wedding to celebrate their first anniversary. They wondered if we might want to join them and enjoy a vacation after a busy wedding season. We did just that. And couldn’t resist giving them an anniversary session. Here are the resulting images of a great friendship and the sweetest souls. We love you two!! Baby shark says hi! 😉
