holy. crap. i literally don’t even know where to begin with these two. i met Kyle playing soccer (if you’ve read any of my other blogs, you know that the majority of these people are soccer players…. what can i say?!), and i was So Excited to meet his then girlfriend Jill. their story is so so cute, and they tell it way better than i do, but the short version is they met online and absolutely flourished from there. i think they both knew pretty early on that they were the one for each other, and seeing them together is seriously the best. they are so loving, so caring, and so silly. i love when a couple can be silly!!
it really was an honor to capture their special day – have i mentioned that yet?!
they were married near Grand Rapids at Mayfair Church by Kyle’s father, which brought me to happy tears almost instantly. it was my second wedding this year where the father of the groom performed the marriage, and i absolutely loved that little detail! we did photos on the campus of Aquainas College, which admittedly i had never been to besides one college soccer match… but it was paradise!!! these places that we were able to use for photos were out of this world – i could have stayed there and photographed these two all day! but we had other things to do…. 😀
Kyle and Jill had their reception at one of the most GORGEOUS venues i’ve seen!!! it was called River’s Edge and the owners of the venue were so SO nice, they took us out on a tractor ride around the property during golden hour. STUN. NING!!!! the couple welcomed the break and the time alone and my artistic self was like a kid on Christmas morning – the views were stunning, Kyle and Jill made everything SO EASY – it was a dream!!
anyway, enough from me… enjoy the view of their special day through my eyes 😀
congratulations, Jill and Kyle – much love to you both and i wish you nothing but the absolute best in your adventure together!!!
