{ Amanda and Greyson :: Married! }

I loved everything about Amanda and Greyson’s glamorous Grand Rapids wedding! After their retro-fabulous engagement session, I knew they would plan an amazing day, and I couldn’t wait to photograph them again!  They held their intimate wedding ceremony and reception at the Amway Grand Plaza on September 4th, 2010, with family and friends that came from across the country.  It was a beautiful afternoon, and everyone was excited for the day to get started.  Girls were looking gorgeous, guys looking dashing. Their black and white palette was absolute glam perfection, punctuated with greens, purples and blues.

Amanda’s beautiful hair accessory is from Colette Malouf, and her gown is from the Bridal Gallery.

Amanda and Greyson decided not to see each other before their ceremony, so we did some quick shots of guys and girls separately beforehand. Starting with those handsome guys!

I’m gaga for this wrapped boutonniere with succulents!

Amanda was absolutely stunning.  Like jaw-dropping stunning.  I could photograph her all day, any day.

And her bouquet…. le sigh… I’m in love!  Modern Day Floral rocks my socks!  They are always amazing!

Lovely ladies!

The bouquets were all different, as were the girls dresses, shoes and necklaces!

Seriously, the flowers… I’m obsessed.

Eeee!  These pictures make me giggle.  I had them do them individually, with the intention of merging them like this.  Seriously you guys, you’re the freaking cutest!!



After the ceremony, we headed out with the bridal party for some fun, playful, romantic images downtown.

Or maybe these are my favorite… it’s a tie.  Gah, I love you guys!!

Back inside… Hello, Gerald Ford Ballroom!  Gorgeous!

Their cupcakes and stand were very unique – made by family members!

Place cards took the form of adorable birds nests with little eggs!

Their reception was ridiculously fun  🙂

You know a family is wicked cool when the groom and his mom dance to a montage that includes Thriller!

Love you, love you!!  Congratulations again Amanda & Greyson, best to you!!
