Rustic is kind of our thing. Adam and I were married in a barn four years ago, and I’ve been in love with burlap, lace, and worn wood floors ever since. But then I met Rachel and her fiancé Grant, and their love completely blew any detail out of the water. Emotions are felt on wedding days that few are privileged to see, and I’m so so thankful we were there to not only experience it with these two, but that we were able to capture them too.
Rachel and Grant were married on a September day in the middle of West Michigan. They were dressed, had a First Look and then celebrated their marriage at The Centennial Barn Wayland; and my lanta, did we have a fantastic day!
The Centennial Barn offers a place for both the bridesmaids and the groomsmen to get ready. Its always super nice to be close to the best picture locations!
Grant and Rachel chose to have a First Look to optimize our time with portraits, and I am thrilled to work with clients who trust our artistic vision! We had them meet together in the middle of soybean fields — mud and all. Rachel was such a trooper in her boots and white gown! I am overjoyed with how they turned out! What do you think?
These moments happened, and I am forever grateful to be a part of them.
Happy Groom, Happy Bride … Happy Photographers!
Oh, and BRIDAL PARTY FOR THE WIN.<3
Then we took the party bus over to the church to GET MARRIED ! ! !
That train, though…
The rain might’ve begun to drizzle, but we were warm and dry in the barn getting ready to celebrate!
I fell in love with those string lights. Might need some for my office!
Cozy and in love.
Can you still bust a move like Grandma and Grandpa?
Mmm, we love you, Centennial Barn. And we love love LOVE -YOU TWO- Grant and Rachel! Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious of days. Looking back, everything went off without a hitch, and we’re still swooning over your decor, your locations, but most importantly, your love.<3
Wishing you the best of the best! – A+B
