Jen + Aaron { married! }

Jen and Aaron were married on the beautifully sunny, breezy cool afternoon of April 17 2010.  It was my first wedding of the 2010 spring season, and I was SO happy that it was Jen and Aaron!  They are such wonderful people, with equally amazing families and friends. The energy of the day felt fun, fresh and full of love, closeness and family.  We started at the Radisson Plaza Hotel, where the guys and girls were getting ready, and getting excited for the day to begin.  They held their ceremony at WMU’s Kanley Chapel, with a perfect reception at one of my favorite venues – Kalamazoo’s Cityscape Center. Music and dancing by the super cool guys at Phatt Music DJs. And I can’t get over how in love I am with the flowers and Jen’s color palette – navy blue, charcoal gray and spring green.  Yumm-o!  Bouquets and bouts by Dorothy’s Floral Studio.

Jen looked absolutely stunning!

Have I mentioned (only about a hundred times) how much I L.O.V.E the First Look?  ::swoon!::

As cool as Jen and Aaron are, I KNEW they’d have an supersweet bridal party.  They didn’t disappoint!  Thanks for being SO awesome, guys!!

This is one of my favorite group shots ever – love it!

Dear Bridal Party: I love you.

Dear Jen’s bouquet:  I’m still swooning.

Girls, you are crazy-lovely.  Seriously!

And then there’s THESE handsome devils…

Love these sweet little moments behind the scenes  🙂

Let’s get Married!

It was an emotional ceremony, with a very reluctant Father to Groom handoff.

The party busy crew – we had some unexpected guests show up for this shoot… I’ll let Jen and Aaron tell you about it  😉

Guests were serenaded by very talented Jared Getz on the guitar ~

I am SO very happy for you two!  Wishing you ALL the very best!
