what a beautiful and relaxing wedding day. i normally can’t say ‘wedding’ and ‘relaxing’ in the same sentence. they just don’t usually go together. but janelle was one of thee most laid back brides ever. and we all truly enjoyed their day because of that. once tara and i introduced ourselves, the girls continued to get ready and we captured some of the lovely details from their day.
they started with getting ready at their local church, after a first look, we then headed to grand haven to enjoy some sunshine and water. there is just something about grand haven, michigan that makes me smile. probably because it just screams summer time as soon as you enter the town. i absolutely loved shooting there with these two love birds. janelle has this spit fire about her and i absolutely love her ‘smirky’ smile. this couple is real folks. just REAL. in between shots they talked and laughed as if i wasn’t there. i love that. no no, not to be ignored my friends, but when i see couples interacting with one another on their wedding day, so relaxed, truly and totally in love. also have to add, loved their get-a-way car, passed down in the family. how fun.
it was a beautiful friday wedding. to read more of their story check out their engagement photos HERE. janelle + cody, the best to you!
