Katie + Austin’s wedding fell on the first day of Summer - and a beautiful first day of Summer it was! They tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at The Cheney Place in Grand Rapids, MI. They read their vows in front of their guests - which had little to no dry eyes by the end of them, although there were several jokes cracked about the Lion’s football season (Austin is a die-hard fan). At the reception Katie’s son, Weston, made the sweetest, most heartfelt speech about his mom and his new Step-Dad… again, not a dry eye in the building!

Another big thing that stood out to me about Katie + Austin’s day.. their VENDORS. I don’t think I’ve ever worked with a team of vendors as great as they were - so sweet, helpful, and accommodating. If you’re in the market for some vendors, please check out the ones listed at the end of this blog! They deserve all the love!
