Benjamin + Amanda | Frederik Meijer Gardens Wedding
"A small intimate affair is what our day will be" is the first comment I remember from Amanda as we spoke over the phone about her and Benjamin's wedding day at Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids. She described a day with only 14 guests, all immediate family. She described what she was looking for regarding photography and was hoping we could spend just a few hours with them on their wedding day capturing lots of photos of the two of them and obviously the ceremony as well. We scheduled over an hour of photo time with just Benjamin and Amanda where we traveled around Meijer Gardens, wandering throughout the main building and heading out to the waterfall even though the rain was intermittent. After the guests arrived, the ceremony was held at the waterfall, despite the rain, below a tree that was provided cover for Benjamin and Amanda.
Following the ceremony and family portraits, we moved to the Amway Grand Plaza for a few minutes of photos around the Pantlind Ballroom before heading up to Cygnus 27 and the Sky Rooms where a wonderful dinner was served. As always, the Amway took great care of Benjamin, Amanda and their families during the dinner session.
