{ Beth and Billy :: Married! }

August 7, 2010 – a perfectly beautiful day in the West Michigan countryside. Beth and Billy had an incredible wedding day, filled with life, love, family and friends.  And beautiful details!  They chose purple and magenta for their colors, love!  They were married at Hudsonville Congregational United Church of Christ, with a reception at the Conklin Knights of Columbus Hall just north of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

You can’t go wrong starting the day with shoes like these.  Or Beth’s amazing gown, handmade by her mother.

Meanwhile, Billy and the guys were getting ready down the hall

The girls’ bouquets were made by the always fabulous, and super talented Allison of Events by Ludemas!

Totally loving this sweet lovebird ring pillow!

Orchard. Love.

The shots we took in the orchard were some of my favorite of the day, so fun, so lovely!

Off to the reception!  Perfect details by the bride and friends & family.  Music by Moonlighting.  Lovely and yummy goodies by Delicious Bakeshop!

Have you ever seen a bride and groom cut their cake with a sword?  Me either 😉

Right before the sun went down, I snuck the couple out for just a few more in the gorgeous field of Queen Anne’s Lace… swoon!

Okay, THESE are my favorite of the day.  Hands-down.  🙂

Love you two!!  Congratulations again, wishing you all the very best!!
