Saturday we assisted Kimberly+Jeremy as they tied the knot in Spring Lake! The ceremony was held at St. Mary’s Catholic church in Spring Lake, and after a full mass, the couple and bridal party boarded a trolley to take pictures in Spring Lake and on the Grand Haven waterfront!

At cocktail hour at Spring Lake Country Club, guests were treated to both indoor and outdoor entertainment, with a pianist entertaining guests who enjoyed cocktails in the foyer, and a bagpiper who performed on the green for guests partaking in the cocktail hour out on the patio. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, and the couple was escorted across the green by the bagpipes as they entered the reception celebration!

The ballroom was opened for dinner and it was absolutely stunning with embroidered ivory overlays, 38″ high centerpieces of white and blue hydrangeas, peonies, roses, and gardenias. and tons of candles. The ballroom overlooks Spring Lake with an entire wall of windows as a backdrop for the bridal party! The delicious (and beautiful!) 5 tier cake was created by Sweet Cakes Designs, along with the MSU-themed groom’s cake (a nod to the 2 MSU alums!)

Scott with Complete Music kept the dancing going all night and Wade of Shutter Booth was on hand to create a scrapbook-style guest book for Kim+Jeremy. Mary and I had to check it out, but those photos will come later:-) Mike and Tori of M-Buck Studios were capturing every minute, and even had a slideshow of the day ready to put out at the reception! This was such a fun idea and guests loved getting to see what had happened earlier in the day (especially since the bridal party got to cruise around town in the trolley having fun!)

A big thanks to Kim+Jeremy for letting us be a part of their day! Kim was one of the most organized and detail-oriented brides I’ve worked with, and had such a clear vision of what she wanted (which is wonderful for a planner!) It’s so fun to see that vision come to life, and I hope you both have a wonderful honeymon in Maui!
