East Grand Rapids Wedding {Holly + Shane}

This love story and wedding is totally and utterly rad.

This adorable couple were destined to be together. They met 12 years ago when they were both 16 years old and traveling through Europe. As you can image, at 16 neither one of them was ready to settle done. Fast forward a decade, add in some higher education, a couple trips around the world and some major growing up, and they found themselves ready and wanting to marry one another.

They chose to tie the knot in a backyard wedding and luckily didn’t have to go far to find the perfect backyard, as Holly’s dad has the quintessential backyard in East Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States.

Emily of Emily Alt Photography captured their spectacular wedding and commented; “The night could not have been more perfect. The weather was ideal, the bridesmaid’s looks like they had walked off the pages of Vogue, and the bride stunned her guests as her mother and father escorted her down the grassy aisle.

What made this wedding so much fun were all the awesome homemade touches (Holly’s mom, Gretchen, created her headpiece), but also the undeniable love and passion the bride and groom hold for one another. There was not a dry eye in the backyard as Holly and Shane recited their self-written vows, and became husband and wife.”
