Dustin + Melissa | Bay Pointe Inn Boathouse Wedding

49 guests attended Dustin and Melissa's wedding at the Bay Pointe Inn Boathouse Villa on Gun Lake.

We met Dustin and Melissa at Jeff and Sarah's Grand Rapids wedding back in 2012 (yes, 5 years ago). Since then we have seen them off and on at other weddings we have photographed for their circle of friends. When Melissa reached out to us last year, we were obviously excited to capture their wedding day on camera and help them tell the story of their wedding day. 

They decided to rent the Boathouse Villa at Bay Pointe Inn which is a 3 story remodeled lake house directly on Gun Lake. They reserved the house for the weekend, held their rehearsal on Friday, spent the night at the house and then had their ceremony and reception on the water. Dinner and dancing followed as many of the guests were staying either at the Boathouse or at a room next door at the inn.

We arrived and found the guys almost ready to go for photos and Melissa helped their 4 year old daughter, Lilly, get into her flower girl dress. The details of the wedding day and the boathouse itself made for a wonderful backdrop. 

Dustin and Melissa chose to do a "first look" prior to the ceremony and we then followed the first look with photos of the wedding party around the boathouse property. 

The weather was threatening all morning, but it didn't rain and the cloud cover, as it turns out, is actually better for wedding photos than direct sunlight (especially during the middle of the day). 

Just as Melissa walked down the aisle, the sun came out for their wedding ceremony. Needless to say, it turned out to be a HOT 30 minute ceremony on Gun Lake. 

The ceremony kicked off with Lilly stealing the show as the flower girl and Dustin giving her a BIG hug for doing such a wonderful job. 

Following the ceremony we had quite an extensive list of family photos to take as Melissa and Dustin wanted to make sure all of their guests were a part of family photos. It was a quick process and they handled the family photo time like champions (as did their daughter).

Then it was time for photos around the Bay Pointe Inn Boathouse of just Dustin and Melissa. The boathouse has a TON of great locations for photos around the house and on the lake, so we made sure to take advantage of them! 

After photos with Dustin and Melissa it was time for dinner, toasts and dancing, all on the waterfront. 

Best moment of the night for Rebecca and I?

Andrew + Becca | Grand Valley Wedding and Reception


What we loved most about Andrew and Becca's wedding at Grand Valley State were all the little moments between the two of them and the people they care about in their lives: their friends and family. 

What we think you'll love most about the wedding photos will be seeing what a wedding ceremony and reception at Grand Valley State in Allendale looks like.

Becca was referred to us through her hair stylist. Kristi is a former bride of ours who will be celebrating 10 years of marriage in October. She and her husband Brian were at the wedding and it was wonderful to see the two of them as well. 

After Andrew and Becca's Blanford Nature Center engagement photos last fall, we knew these two were comfortable in front of the camera and with each other. All we needed to do on their wedding day was help manage the time (we were only scheduled for 6 hours of photo time) and make sure they had all the moments captured that mattered to them.

The day began with a few 'getting ready' photos at a bridesmaids home just down the road from Grand Valley State. Hair and makeup were done and Becca looked fantastic as she put on the final touches of jewelry (and eventually her dress). 

We then headed over to Grand Valley State where Becca put all the final details together of her wedding dress, Andrew and his guys posed for a few quick portraits outside (as we weren't sure what the weather was going to do later in the day) and Becca and the ladies posed for a few portraits outside the Cook-DeWitt Center. 

Becca's father walked her down the aisle and the youth pastor that introduced Andrew and Becca to one another (many years before) performed the ceremony for her two former youth group attendees. The Cook-DeWitt Center is a beautiful location with fantastic window light from one side of the room. With it's classic white walls, simple seats and raised organ, the setting is second to none for a wedding ceremony.

Following family photos, we spent a few minutes with Andrew and Becca inside the chapel and then headed outside with the entire wedding party. Grand Valley has so many options for photo locations, all we needed to do was exit the building and use the locations immediately around us on campus (including the ivy covered wall and fountain).

The evening finished at the Alumni House on Grand Valley's campus. Shane from Dream Productions was the emcee for an evening filled with fun, laughter and a wonderful meal.

David + Amanda | Wedding at WK Kellogg Manor on Gull Lake

Here is what you're going to love about the Kellogg Manor wedding that David and Amanda planned: 

  • The light while Amanda was getting ready was perfect
  • Billiard room for guys portraits, along with a fantastic office for David - yes please! 
  • The walk down to the lake and the ceremony location is one of the best we've seen
  • Cool breeze on a warm wedding day, no bugs and the sun shining - what more could a couple ask for! 
  • The architecture and design of the house and landscaping of the property
  • The dining room was formal, but warm and inviting, like you might host Thanksgiving dinner there.

It turns out that Kellogg Manor on Gull Lake is a dream wedding venue. And they helped make David and Amanda's wedding day dreams come true by providing an amazing setting for them to become husband and wife.

We met David and Amanda through friends of another wedding from 2016, Josh and Megan who held their wedding at the Amway Grand Plaza in downtown Grand Rapids. Amanda's mother reached out to us and we put together a photo package that met their needs. 

We discovered their wedding day would be a shorter day, with ceremony and reception both at the Kellogg Manor on Gull Lake, where about 65 guests would attend their ceremony and enjoy a meal together afterward. 

We focused our photo time on David, Amanda and their 4 year old daughter Alyana, who was a joy to meet and photograph. Her sense of humor and intellect at 4 years old is beyond compare and we hope the images capture the love David and Amanda (and their extended families) have for her.

Getting ready, David and Amanda used upstairs bedrooms in the house. They were told to use the house as if it were their own. It gave the getting ready portion of their day an intimate feel as if they were at home.

But just a few steps downstairs and outside the front door, you are transported to a completely different location. One filled with great architecture, a home with character and a little history.

The walk down to the lake is a series of steps and a path that is perfect for the reveal of the bride to her soon to be husband. Amanda and her father enjoyed the additional few moments hiding as the ceremony was about to begin. 

The lakefront ceremony location is beautiful. Though the day was hot (above 85 degrees) the wind kept guests cool and who doesn't enjoy sitting by the lake in the summer? 

Following the ceremony we captured family portraits and then used all the landscape elements and design to create portraits of David, Amanda and the wedding party before heading back up the path to the house for dinner. 

Heading back up to the house, guests were seated in the formal dining room for cake cutting, toasts and a meal that was one of the best we've ever had in 300+ weddings. 

Dancing started just off the dining room on the porch and as David and Amanda danced together for the first time as husband and wife, their daughter joined them as well. 

The night was finished off with portraits of the wedding party near the Kellogg Manor home along with David and Amanda on the beautiful staircase inside. 

How could we not take advantage of such a beautiful location and a great couple like David and Amanda.

Dante + Ruth | Grand Rapids Wedding at The Gallery at Divani

It has been a pleasure getting to know Dante and Ruth over the past year. We were introduced to them through Ruth's father Ralph, a realtor in Grand Rapids who we have known for many years. He mentioned his daughter was getting married and wondered if we would be able to photograph her wedding day.

Unfortunately we were already booked for the date, but thankfully we have a great team of associate photographers that we could connect with them. Jason and Tara, who have worked alongside us for the past several years, photographed their wedding day, along with another photographer friend, Ed. 

Earlier in the year, Jason and Tara photographed Dante and Ruth's engagement photos from the Gerald R Ford Airport. In case you haven't seen their engagement photos, I'd recommend checking out the session as there are few times couples are able to have access to the airport like Dante and Ruth had.

The day began at Neland Avenue CRC in Grand Rapids where Dante and Ruth both got ready, had a beautiful first look before the ceremony, followed by time for portraits before becoming husband and wife.

One of our favorite parts of their ceremony was Ruth's father, Ralph, a former pastor, was able to serve them communion during their wedding ceremony. It's special touches like this that make each and every ceremony and wedding day unique. 

Following the ceremony Dante and Ruth held a private foot washing ceremony to symbolize their commitment to one another. As the first thing after their ceremony, it displays their willingness to serve one another as husband and wife.

After the foot washing ceremony and family portraits, Jason and Ed whisked the wedding party to downtown Grand Rapids.

The first stop was the JW Marriott where the rain could not hinder wedding party portraits. Using the fantastic staircase as the backdrop, the wedding party, along with Dante and Ruth look amazing.

The next few stops were part of the Downtown Skywalk in where everyone could continue to stay dry. 

Then it was a quick hop back in the limo with a final stop at Rosa Parks Circle where the rain had left a wonderful layer of water on the urban space which Jason and Ed used for a few great portraits while the rain came down ever so lightly. 

The evening ended with a celebration at The Gallery at Bar Divani in downtown Grand Rapids. The Gallery is a tucked away hidden gem in downtown Grand Rapids for events less than 80 guests for sit down dinner. The exposed brick and large windows provide a welcoming environment and the meal and cake, provided by Bar Divani, are always wonderful.

The evening ended with toasts, dinner and time to mix and mingle with their wedding guests.

Ken + Mallory | East Grand Rapids Engagement Photos

East Grand Rapids engagement photos with Ken & Mallory

East Grand Rapids engagement photos with Ken & Mallory

It's crazy to think we were there when these two met for the first time. Actually, my wife was the one that introduced them to one another.

Yes, I know it sounds crazy, but we knew both Ken and Mallory independently for the last couple of years. While talking to Ken at a networking event about his relationship status, my wife just happened to ask, "So Ken, what are you looking for in a woman?" 

Ken says now that he listed off all the things he wanted in a wife because he didn't think that she was out there.

As the list of what he was looking for continued, my wife was checking off in her mind all the things that Mallory was as a single woman. 

Once he finished, my wife responded with, "Well that's a great list Ken and it's awesome that you know what you want. Have you met Mallory yet?" 

She was at the same networking event and the met for the first time. And they say the rest is history. Fast forward a year and these two are engaged and planning a Caberfae wedding in October.

(Come to think of it, perhaps my wife should become a dating consultant in Grand Rapids. This is the 4th couple she's setup that are now married, the other 3 all have children as well. Thoughts?)

If you're looking for great locations for engagement photos, a stroll through downtown East Grand Rapids is a great place to start.

Andrew + Megan | Grand Rapids Wedding at Cascade Christian Church

Andrew and Megan are two of our great friends.

We have known Megan for 8 years, first while she was a college student, then as a young professional and now as a married woman. 

Through her journey she and my wife Rebecca have become dear friends and when she met Andrew, we knew she had found the one she was to marry. 

In case you are not familiar with their proposal, perhaps you should check out how Andrew proposed at the Ada Covered Bridge in October 2016. 

During their engagement, they sent us questions about their wedding day plans. We were happy to answer to the best of our ability. 

Then came the wedding day. 

These two have been one of the best examples we have seen of honoring God with their relationship. We were humbled how God was the center of their wedding day from the pre-ceremony plans, the ceremony itself to the party afterward at Noto's.

The day began at Heidi Christine's Salon and Spa where Megan (and her 6 bridesmaids) had their hair and makeup done by a wonderful team of stylists.

They then headed to Cascade Christian Church where they enjoyed a low-key lunch, got into their wedding day attire and had a first look as "soon to be husband and wife" before the ceremony.

Megan and Andrew exchanged letters just prior to seeing one another and then Megan had the blessing to see her dad as well. Both moments were extremely emotional (to say the least) and because these two saw each other and arranged for photo time prior to there ceremony, by the time the ceremony happened, it was all down hill from there. They were able to enjoy time with their friends and family. 

Their ceremony was held in the original Chapel at Cascade Christian Church, which, as you will see below, might become my new favorite small ceremony venue. 

Two special parts of their wedding day were the participation of their service dogs. Megan is deaf and has Blarney as her service dog. Andrew has limited vision and Delass is his service dog. Both were walked down the aisle and served as "comedic relief" for the ceremony as no one was sure if they would behave as planned (they of course did, they're service dogs after all). 

The second was the getaway vehicle, a classic red Mercedes coupe. The vehicle was purchased and restored by Andrew's grandfather and has been in the family for quite some time. The fact they were able to head out in the car was a unique moment of their wedding day. 

For the reception guests headed to Noto's Old World where the upstairs ballroom served as the venue for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. 

As always, Noto's served a wonderful meal and cupcakes and entertainment for the night was provided by our great friend Stacey from Dream Productions provided music for the night of dancing and fun. 

Andrew and Megan had an early dinner (around 6pm) and because of that, decided to exit the party early with a sendoff around 9pm. Guests enjoyed dancing following their official sendoff, while Megan and Andrew were able to enjoy an early evening (rather than a midnight or 1am hotel arrival time).

Dante + Ruth | Engagement Photos at Gerald R Ford Airport

Engagement sessions can be as unique as couples want them to be. 

Take Dante and Ruth for example. 

They emailed and asked if we were open to using the Gerald R. Ford Airport as the location for their engagement session. 

We said, "Why not!?!" 

And off we went contacting the airport's administration for permission to film in the public areas of the airport. (Yes, you need to communicate with them, fill out paperwork and provide a few other things in order to be approved).

Dante and Ruth's wedding day will be photographed by our associate photographers, Jason and Tara Massey. So it only made sense to have them meet up with Dante and Ruth for the engagement session as well.

The session was scheduled for early in the day on a Saturday. And when I say early, I mean early. Like before the sun was up. 

Which means they had the chance to photograph Dante and Ruth before sunrise and then as the sun came up over the horizon and provided beautiful light for the soon to be husband and wife. 

What other cool and unique locations can you think of for an engagement session in the Grand Rapids area?

Justin + Julie | Wedding at Calvary Church in Grand Rapids

We love photographing weddings at Calvary Church in Grand Rapids. It is our home church after all. It gets even better when we can photograph the wedding celebrations of people we have known for a while. 

We have known Julie for a while. We met through her parents, Chuck and Brenda who attend Calvary as well. 

Julie is a sweetheart of a woman. She is an elementary school teacher, which means you know she's pretty much a saint. 

She and Justin met online several years ago and through the years their relationship blossomed. She became a second mom to Justin's son, Lucas and they now live in the greater Detroit area. 

The wedding day that Justin and Julie planned was simple.

Less than 60 guests.

Ceremony at Calvary Church. Family and wedding party photos following the service.

Travel down to Charley's Crab for dinner and drinks (who doesn't like filet and lobster tail for dinner, right?).

Have a horse drawn carriage pick up Justin and Julie, taking them to the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.

When we are part of smaller weddings like Justin and Julie's, it reminds us that fewer guests means the bride and groom can greet everyone in attendance and have meaningful conversations with their closest family and friends. 

It was a blessing to be a part of Justin and Julie's wedding day and if you would like to view all the photos from Justin and Julie's wedding day, be sure to click the link below.

Patrick + Kari | Ada Covered Bridge Engagement Photos

Engagement sessions in the winter can be tricky. The forecast could call for 6 inches of snow, light rain or beautiful sunshine and 60 degrees.

That's what happened for Patrick and Kari's engagement session in Ada, 60 degrees and sunny! 

We have had the pleasure of knowing these two since they were first setup on a blind date at an event for Saint Mary's Foundation. This is yet another reason to go to the Saint Mary's Foundation events -- you might end up meeting your future spouse!  (Join the Saint Mary's Foundation event list by clicking here! )

We have been able to stay in touch with them over the past few years and were able to photograph their engagement in September 2016 at the Up on the Roof event at the Lacks Cancer Center. 

Engagement photos at the Ada Covered Bridge are always a fun time as there are so many different perspectives with the bridge as the backdrop. 

You will notice how many different spots we covered during the engagement session below.

Be on the lookout for their wedding photos later in 2017 and in the meantime, enjoy getting to know these two who we are so excited to work with!

Downtown Grand Rapids Wedding Reception Venues | Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer

Looking for a list of places to host your wedding reception in downtown Grand Rapids

You've found the post that will help you make sense of your options!

We live in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. We have photographed over 300+ weddings in the past few years.

Being downtown, we thought, "Why not create a post to help future brides know where they can have their wedding reception in downtown Grand Rapids?"

First of all, there are MANY more reception options around Grand Rapids, you are not limited to these. 

These reception options are
"in the city center and walkable". 

What does this mean?

It means you will find venues that are located within the red box below.

In addition, you will see another section that are considered "downtown", but are not within walking distance (guests will have to drive from downtown hotels).

The venues below are not ranked in any specific order & if you have questions, be sure to reach out and let us know how we can help you with your wedding photography needs! 

If you have questions about "favorite venues",
all you have to do is ask.

Bridgewater Place - Grand River Ballroom

This is actually where my wife and I held our wedding reception in 2002. The views overlooking the river might be the best in town as you look south toward DeVos Place, the Amway Grand Plaza, etc. The atrium for cocktails is stunning as well. (No you will not be seeing a wedding photo from our wedding because we didn't hire a good photographer and the photos turned out badly. Click to learn more about our wedding story.)


The Amway Grand Plaza Hotel is one of the most versatile locations in Grand Rapids. Josh and Megan held their Amway wedding in one ballroom and moved to another for their reception, both with different layouts and designs. It is the "original" skyline hotel in Grand Rapids. Or you can head up to the Sky Rooms that overlook all of downtown Grand Rapids.

See Amway Grand wedding photos

City Flats

City Flats is a beautiful space located inside the former Michigan National Bank lobby. Marble floors and a collection of pillars dominate the room that has built in uplighting to create different "moods" throughout the night. 

See City Flats wedding photos

Grand Rapids Art Museum

The GRAM has several spaces for receptions both large and small. Perhaps the main theater will be best for your large party or perhaps the upstairs lounge with access to the terrace will be a better bet for your smaller wedding.

Tre Cugini (La Scala)

Located in the atrium of the Ledyard Building, it is housed just across the street from Rosa Parks Circle. If you love exposed brick walls with high ceilings, the 4 story open atrium will be a dream come true for you. 

Ballroom at McKay Tower

The former Grand Rapids National Bank lobby inside the McKay Tower (across from the Amway Grand) is a 2nd floor reception facility that is a great choice for your wedding reception. The space is longer than it is wide, allowing you to have a "dining" space on one end of the room and a "dance" space on the other end. (Or think ceremony on one end of the room and reception on the other).


The BOB (Big Old Building) has  two options on floors 3 and 4 that are very different. The 3rd floor offers exposed brick feel while the 4th floor (EVE) is built more like a nightclub in New York City with furniture to match.

University Club

The original "members" club located at the top of the 5/3 Building has great 270 degree views of the city's landscape from 11 floors above ground. The University Club is one of the most longstanding venues in the downtown area (and my wife says the best wedding meal she's had in a long time). 

See University Club wedding photos.

Eberhard Center

A favorite for Grand Valley State University graduates because GVSU gives alumni a discount for hosting their receptions in their facility. It's next to the Grand Rapids Public Museum and is closest facility to downtown's famous "Blue Bridge".

See Eberhard Center wedding photos.

Conference Center at WMU

Western Michigan University has a presence in downtown Grand Rapid and their main floor conference center is great for receptions. The rest of the building is a photographer's wonderland with long hallways, exposed brick and no foot traffic during your event. 

The Waldron

Kitty corner from the world famous "HopCat", it's owned by the same company, BarFly Ventures. It is a former restaurant and club, but was recently transitioned to an "event only" space. It's a great solution for folks calling HopCat asking "Can you host my wedding reception?" They can now say, no we cannot, but right across the street we have The Waldron.

St. Cecilia Music Center

A combination of an auditorium for your ceremony and then a banquet room on the upper level means your guests do not need to leave between ceremony and reception time. 

Grand Rapids Public Museum

An iconic building along the riverfront with the option of "dining and dancing under the whale and riding the carousel..." The narrow, but long main floor space allows you and your guests to enjoy the wonder of the Public Museum.

See Grand Rapids Public Museum wedding photos.

JW Marriott

The newest addition to the Grand Rapids skyline, the JW Marriott has a large ballroom to accommodate large receptions. As the high end hotel on the river, many couples stay here on their wedding night. 

See JW Marriott wedding and event photos.

Downtown Market

Though about 5 blocks south of the Van Andel Arena, the Downtown Market is still a walkable destination in our eyes. The second floor of the Downtown Market gives you a glimpse back toward downtown. Access to the greenhouse is wonderful for your ceremony while the reception hall is just across the hall. 

See Downtown Market wedding photos.

Just outside of downtown...

These venues are not within walking distance, but are close.

New Vintage Place

The former site of the American Seating Company, New Vintage Place renovated the space for weddings up to 240 people on the west side of Grand Rapids.

Waddell Center

Just north of downtown Grand Rapids, the Waddell Center can host up to 300 people for receptions and is owned by local restaurant owners Brann's Steakhouse. 

Cheney Place

A former warehouse at 1600 North Monroe means it's not within walking distance of downtown, but it's still close. The venue has facility has space for both ceremonies and receptions and can accommodate 350 people. 

Goei Center

A former furniture factory, Eastern Floral purchased the space and renovated two different spaces for your wedding. The spaces can accommodate up to 400 people and if you love wood floors and exposed brick, this might just be your place.

See Goei Center wedding photos.

Bissell Tree House

If you're looking for a view of Grand Rapids, the Tree House might be your place. The space can host up to 200 people, has a wrap around deck and is set in the trees of John Ball Zoo. Add to the fact that guests arrive via the "Funicular" rather than driving, it's a touch that few places can top.
