By Jamie May Photography: The last wedding of the year!! Marie and I had such a great year with so many amazingly nice couples. God has just blessed us with great people to work with! We ended our season at Bridgewater Place in Grand Rapids. There was a sheet of ice on the ground from the ice storm we had, so we were unable to go out much for this wedding. Good thing the location had this great bridal room. We took full advantage of the cool furniture. Jason and Mellissa are gorgeous couple. They looked so happy to be getting married!! We had a wonderful time and it was great to see some family and some friends there! Best Wishes to you both.
By Jamie May Photography: It has been a harsh December in Grand Rapids, but it made for some beautiful winter wedding pictures. I am so happy for my cousin Jerad, who got married to a beautiful bride, Amy! Growing up, Jerad was like a brother to me, so when they asked me to photograph their wedding I was thrilled. When I photograph a wedding, I get to spend the whole day and night with the bride and groom, so this was one of the reasons I was so excited. We started downtown Grand Rapids at the Courtyard Hotel. I have been there before for a wedding and love it there. They have beautiful rooms to photograph in. Then we headed over to the church. I was very happy that Jerad and Amy decided to do a first look. Especially this time of the year with the sun setting so early. Amy had lots of wonderful ideas and input. I am so glad she was so excited about pictures and made time for them. Their ceremony was beautiful. We headed out in a limo to Rosa Parks in Grand Rapids and took some pictures and then headed to the reception. Their limo was filled with laughter and fun. All of their friends were very welcoming and cooperative. They all danced the night away with Jerad showing off some of his awesome dance moves, which was the highlight of my night. He has really mastered dancing to Michael Jackson songs, all of those practicing session at my house when we were young. Wishing you many years of happiness and love, and little Jerad and Amys running around. I may be crossing the line now….
By Jamie May Photography: We had a great time with Brendon and Kristin at their wedding. They are a super sweet couple and a ton of fun. They had their reception at Sevens Step Up which is such a great place. It has beautiful exposed brick and it is nice and cozy in there. Kristin was a stunning bride! I love all their happiness and all their expressions throughout the day. They were so kind and considerate to us which is always so nice. There family continued to encourage us and tell us how great of a job we were doing. I am so happy to have shared in their wedding day. Wishing them many more wonderful memories ahead!!
By Jamie May Photography: I just love Dan and Celeste. I have gotten to know them a little better than most because they ended up being my neighbors. They are such a genuine, sweet couple. So the day was like hanging out with friends. Everything was beautiful. We started at the hotel, where Celeste put on her dress and headed over to Spring Lake Country Club in Spring Lake for the first look. I also appreciate so much when couples see each other beforehand, especially in the fall when the sun is setting sooner.
They had their ceremony at Harvest Bible. I just love the exiting pictures of the beautiful building that just was recently updated and the blue sky in the window on the building. Michigan weather is so crazy, it started to rain when we went back inside to take the family formals! So glad all the pictures were out of the way that were necessary for outside!
Spring Lake Country Club is a very nice place to get married. Food is always wonderful too! I love the dance that is in their family tradition. I love capturing special moments, especially hilarious ones!
So glad to be a part of your day Dan and Celeste! Thank you!!
By Jamie May Photography: I had a wonderful time as always at Kristen and Bob’s wedding. Kristen was such a thoughtful bride, she blessed everyone in her family with special gifts for her day. She took a piece of her grandma’s dress and her mom’s dress and made a necklace out of them. We spent a lot of time at the hotel and then headed to the beach for a beach wedding! It was a extremely hot day for the time of year, but we were happy for sunshine. Then we headed to Spring Lake Country Club. The Country Club is a beautiful location. Bob and Kristen had a unique first dance, that brought lots of laughs. What a great wedding!
So glad to be a part of it!!
By Jamie May Photography: I was amazed that the rain held off for Mike and Milu’s wedding. Apple Blossom in Fennville was such a beautiful location. We had a wonderful time with this couple. They had a full dance floor the whole night and that is always a great sign of a fun wedding!
I am so happy to have been a part of their day. I feel so blessed to be a part of these special memories!
Congratulations Mike and Milu!
By Jamie May Photography: We had a wonderful time at Carly and Luke’s Wedding. It was all in one location – Ceremony and Reception at the Grand Haven Golf Course. We always LOVE that. Golf courses are so pretty! This also was the first time we did a photo booth style for a bride and groom and we had a blast with it! So fun. I highly recommend it.
Carly and Luke were a great bride and groom to work for. They were kind and considerate! I, seriously, get the best brides and grooms!
The food was amazing and the cupcakes from Grand Volute in Grand Haven were awesome. It was a beautiful wedding. So happy to be a part of it and to know these newlyweds!
By Jamie May Photography: Jenna and Nathan got married downtown Grand Rapids at the Bob. Grand Rapids is such a beautiful city. It was so great to spend time with Nathan and Jenna. They are a very sweet couple. We had lots of laughs with their bridal party.
Nathan and Jenna had a ton of great moves on the dance floor and kept everyone having a fun time. I just love when the bride and groom enjoys the dance floor at their reception!
So thankful to be a part of their day!!!
by Jamie May: I had a great time hanging out with my family at this wedding! So happy for my cousin, who married Holly. She was a gorgeous bride. They picked a lovely park in Byron Center to get married at. When the ceremony was finished we headed to downtown Grand Rapids. They both have a great group of friends. Holly had so many cool details, but I was not sole on this wedding. Her aunt did the details and the bridesmaid pictures and I don’t have the pictures to share, but they were awesome. So thankful to be a part of this lovely day! Thanks Holly and Kyle!
