I’m in the thick of it with weddings, high school seniors, booking families and even squeezed in a newborn session this week. I have had so many fabulous sessions that it’s a crying shame that I don’t do a blog post from every session.
I had to do a quick post of these images of Jeff & Jana. I’ve been borderline hyper for their wedding since their FABULOUS engagement session last fall. They’re awesome to work with, up for anything I suggest and totally trusted me. Their wedding was in Rockford and their reception was at The BOB in Grand Rapids which is such a great place, it’s fun, spacious and has a ton of character and don’t even get me started on the food…LOVE it!
The wedding was fun, fun wedding party and who doesn’t love a bride with a bunch of sisters? They had these card board cut outs of themselves as children which were so adorable I’ve decided I need to get some myself. All that being said, my very favorite thing was their “favor” or should I say lack of a “favor”. Jeff & Jana decided to forgo the “favors” and instead made a donation to the “Be The Match” program for the National Bone Marrow Program. What a better way to start out your new life than to extend the gift of life to someone else. Party favors make the table pretty but really only last one night. They’re often tossed out or not even taken. Who knows what will come of this gesture, what kind of awareness brought on, who will be prompted to register and be matched and life can be saved.
