By Jamie May Photography: Woah! I have been a blogging machine here. Only one more to go to wrap up this great wedding year! Again, I have the BEST brides and grooms EVER! Alison and Kyle are another sweet couple whom we were privileged to be a part of their wedding day. We started at Alison’s parents house and then headed over to the Muskegon Union Station for the first look. This is a great architecture in Muskegon. It was a perfect place to have a first look. It was another cold November day, but I was so pleased with the weather overall! There was even a garden area with leaves on the trees still!! We then headed over to the Spring Lake Country Club. They have a great space for an indoor wedding (and outdoor). It was a beautiful ceremony and fun reception! Everyone danced the night away. Thank you for your hospitality on that day! You guys are AWESOME!! And we had a BLAST. Best Wishes!!!
By Jamie May Photography: We had a beautiful, sunny, COLD November day for Danny and Amy’s wedding. Amy was such a trooper through all the wedding photos. Every since the first time I sat down with Danny and Amy, we had so many laughs and so much fun. Truly, was my funniest appointment this year. The wedding day was just as great. I felt like I was hanging with my long time friends. The day all fell into place and was just perfect. Grand Haven Golf Course is one of my favorite wedding venues. They have great food, and the course is very beautiful. They also have a great wedding ceremony site outside and also a inside alternative. So happy for the both of you! Stay in touch my friends!!
By Jamie May Photography: This is a BIG one! There are so many fantastic pictures because of the couple and the locations and the timeframe! We got the most perfect temperature day! We started at Anna’s parents house, getting ready for the day and spending time on the details and then headed over to the church to take all the pre-ceremony pictures we could get in. They had a fun antique car there and the outside of the church was just beautiful. Of course, next came the ceremony which was beautiful. I always think it is a precious moment when everyone comes and prays around the couple. After the ceremony we headed over to the barn in Byron Center (David -maybe leave in the comments the location, I couldn’t find it online) . It was AWESOME! And David and Anna’s family did everything on their own and the details were MANY AND AMAZING. David hand made the mason jar light for this special day. His mom with helpers, made all the cupcakes that looked professionally done and tasted professionally done. Grandma made the jewelry. The signage was all done with a certain cutting machine. The flowers were done by the family. This is one talented group! David’s friends helped with the music. It was a beautiful wedding and Anna and David are dear to my heart, having spent extra time with them during engagement session (which I need to post in a later blog). They are an amazing couple that I hope to know for a long time. There families are wonderful and so are they!
I am so happy to have been a part of this wonderful day. I especially loved all your dance moves, David!
By Jamie May Photography: This was another fantastic wedding. We all kept our chins up for the day that rain. I do hear it is good luck when it rains on your wedding. However, the Ludington Golf Course if very pretty. I was so happy it had a lot of natural light and a pretty setting inside since we had to move the wedding indoors. This wedding was one of those weddings were you just get choked up because of all the wonderful, happy emotions arising that day. Stacy is such a sweetheart too. I love when brides go with the flow even when you are thrown a curve ball! I couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple to work with!! Stacy and Eric, so thankful to have been a part of your day. …and by the way, the Baldwin Ice Cream that was there was AMAZING!! Leave a comment to tell us the name!! :)
Wishing you many more years of happiness!!!
By Jamie May Photography: Another beautiful wedding at the Trillium in Grand Haven. I had so many laughs with this group of guys. They were hilarious. It made all the pictures look fun and natural, which I love. Venard and Deena are such a sweet couple. I love how much they make each other smile!! I love Deena’s flowers and all of her details at the reception. There was never a dull moment that day or night. Her dad even made a video for her that was hilarious.
I am so happy for the both of you and I hope you are enjoying married life!!!
So thrilled to have been a part of your wonderful day!!!!!
(another tip: Life is so much easier on your wedding when you have the wedding and reception at the same place)
By Jamie May Photography: This was a beautiful beach wedding this summer. They rented a private home on Lake Michigan and had a very small, intimate wedding. I LOVED IT! We then headed down to the pier and downtown Grand Haven. I love when we have the opportunity to spend some time with the bride and groom alone. Sara and Kevin were so much fun and welcoming to Marie and I. We felt like we were part of the family for the day. She had a nautical theme. The cake topper is the Nautical alphabet for Love, so cool!!
Wishing you many more boat travels together! :) Best Wishes!!!
By Jamie May Photography: This was such a beautiful wedding. I loved everything about it. I have never been to the lighthouse in Montague called White River Light Station. It was a beautiful place to take pictures. It has the old historical brick museum and lighthouse and it is right on the water. You can walk to the beach. It is a very short walk. I know I have mentioned it before, but I can not express how much I love when couples see each other before the party gets started. They had their first look and then had their family show up and bridal party to take pictures. Then they gave me another half hour to an hour to go to another awesome locations in the woods. It is so nice to have time. It is truly a gift on the wedding day. They got married at the Oak Chanel Trail Golf Course. It is right on the water too and we had beautiful views of Lake Michigan. I love that it was a white tent wedding, right on the grounds. There were beautiful details and I love all the different dishes by Debbie Does Dishes. I also love all the different cakes and desserts. We went overload on the details. In addition to it being a beautiful wedding, this was a beautiful couple inside and out. So thankful to be a part of their wonderful day!! xoxo
ps. sorry if any typos, kids are saying mom a hundred times as I am trying to write this! :)
By Jamie May Photography: I had a wonderful time with Adam and Ashley this summer. This was a fun group and we had many laughs. We started at this little, cute chapel in Coopersville. When then walked around the town a bit and found some neat spots to take some pictures. I just love how much Adam and Ashley just laugh together. They are so adorable and their laughs are infectious!
I am so happy for the both of you and glad to have been a part of your wonderful day!!!
By Jamie May Photography: We walked into the Century Club in Muskegon and were totally overwhelmed with these AWESOME decorations that the bride did all by herself (with help of family). There were so many cool, beautiful, vintage details to go along with the old, rustic brick that is inside the building. The first look was at the Union Station in Muskegon, where the ceremony was going to take place. This was the first wedding ever held there I guess. It was a very beautiful spot to have a wedding. I love the architecture. As I said, there was so many details, even they had vintage cars! I LOVE first looks. They are the best and I love to have an opportunity to hang out before the craziness starts and just focus on the bride and groom. Meg, wore her mom’s veil for a little while, which was the longest veil I have ever seen. It was stunning. I was so happy to be a part of this lovely day. Steve and Meg made us feel so welcomed! Best Wishes to you both for many, many more years to come!!!
(Wedding in August, yes, I am behind on bloggin!! )
By Jamie May Photography: Another stunning wedding and reception. The girls got ready at the Shoreline Inn in Muskegon which is right along the marina. It is a great hotel and the Lake House is right next door which is my favorite restaurant. I love looking at all the boats there and sitting on the patio. Jessie is such a beautiful girl inside and out. It was a pleasure to spend time with her and her family and friends. The wedding was at St. Mary’s in Muskegon. What a beautiful church and the priest was awesome! He had so much personality. I just LOVE his expression in the first kiss photo. It is one of my all time favorites! We then headed over to Pier Marquette Beach in Muskegon. It was a bright, sunny, hot day. But we had a fun time on the beach. I love my job that I get to see the beach all through the summer. I spend most nights there. The reception was at the Muskegon Country Club. I love the views here too. Plus, the country club has a lot of natural light coming in which makes the pictures look nicer. The party favors were so cute. You could take home your own succulent plants, this also was how your name was displayed to find your table. She also had some beautiful linens which is a good way to boost up the decorations in a more affordable way. The band was awesome. I especially LOVED when they played Love Shack because the man vocals nailed it and had lots of expression!! The first dance was perfect to ALL OF ME. I, especially, love when the couple has a dance routine. Thanks so much for hiring me to be a part of your day!!! My daughter said you look like Ken and Barbie because you are such a beautiful couple! Best wishes to you both!! Cassie if you read this can you mention who the band was in the comments, or if I missed anyone. Thanks!
