What an amazing day Saturday turned out to be. I have been very excited about Steve and Melissa's wedding for month and the day finally came and it was all I thought it would be. They were so relaxed and just truly enjoyed the day. The weather turned out perfect, the church was simply elegant and the food was GREAT at the reception. They were married at Central Reformed Church had their reception held right downtown GR. The reception was held for a small gathering of family and friends at San Chez Cafe and it was by far the best food I have had in a long time. They had live music performed by Ken Rothacker, guitarist out of Chicago and it fit perfect for the environment and event.
Steve and Melissa chose to have an intimate affair with only Steve's two children as attendants. James and Sydney were the perfect pair and I took about 200 pictures of them throughout the day. Sydney will hold a special place in my heart for some time to come. She was my little shadow all day and was just the sweetest little girl next to my own little ones.
Melissa was just a breathtaking bride. It was so cute that she had Steve, Sydney and James make the final pick on which dress she would wear for the big day.
The ever so popular back alley. It was great to just walk out the back door of the reception and take a few pictures where we did their engagement pictures just a few short weeks ago.
