Courtney + Rob { married! }

Courtney and Rob were married on November 7th at the Amway Grand Plaza downtown Grand Rapids.  They held their ceremony in the beautiful Gerald Ford Ballroom, with an elegant reception following in the Pantlind Ballroom.  The ladies started their day with a light lunch and mimosas at Splurge Salon, and finished getting ready in an Amway suite.  It was a really fun wedding – Courtney and Rob’s personalities fit together so perfectly, and their friends and family are wonderful to be around.  Everyone was smiling and laughing the entire day.  Perfect!

Their reception was beautiful, and a total blast – smiles, tears, laughter, hugs.  Once the music started playing, everyone was out dancing and having a great time!
