Pam and Matt flew in from Boston to get married at the Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids last summer. This was my second time at the gardens—this place is such a gorgeous setting for a summer wedding. The light was perfect, the gardens were quiet and the couple and their guests were full of smiles. At the end of the ceremony as we were packing up, a heron flew out onto a rock by the waterfall. Perfection.
This wedding can best be summed up with the lyrics from the song that was playing as I packed up my bags at the end of the evening—”Everything is awesome.”
I always love it when brides take the time to do a “first look” with their fathers. It’s such a touching moment for a dad to see his daughter as a bride for the first time.
Thanks to Chris for grabbing another perspective on the first look.
Check back next Tuesday for a brand new blog post.
