With the recent snowfall in Milwaukee, I thought it was the perfect time to travel down memory lane to last February and re-visit Spencer and Alyssa's perfect "winter wonderland" wedding in Grand Rapids, MI. I have had the pleasure of knowing Spencer and Alyssa since college. When they asked me to be their wedding photographer, I was stoked! It was the perfect day. Laughter, joy, and excitement were the three words that kept coming to mind when thinking of their day! It was perfect in every way from the details, to the light snow that was falling, and the joy that was flowing from Spencer and Alyssa! We started at the church photographing the little details that made this day so perfect!
Spencer and Alyssa - Ceremony
After the details, the ceremony started! The message was beautiful, the emotion was raw, and they finally said, "I DO" in front of their closest friends and family! This church has a ton of meaning for Alyssa. Many of her family members were married in this church and it's great to see the legacy continue!
Spencer and Alyssa - Bridal Party
Wedding Party pictures are definitely some of my favorite - especially when you have a fun wedding party like Spencer and Alyssa's. Knowing some of this bridal party personally, definitely helped make for quick and efficient photos...which was needed since it was pretty chilly out! The bridal party were champs in the weather and made for lots of laughs behind the camera! Aquinas College was the perfect setting!
Spencer and ALyssa - Bridal Portraits
This was my first Winter Wedding where the Bride had a genuine mink fur AND a veil!! It was amazing and the fur definitely helped keep Alyssa warm throughout the day! Classic and elegant are the two words that popped into my head when shooting Bridal Portraits for Spencer and Alyssa! It helps that they both look like models ;)
Spencer and Alyssa - Reception
The reception was great. So many wooded, winter details throughout the venue and some true raw emotion for their first dance! What a day this was - with Spencer and Alyssa's 1 year anniversary is coming up, please leave a comment for the Bride and Groom to see as they continue to do life together!
