Jon & Kat planned a beautiful outdoor wedding at Spring Grove Park for September 18th but as the luck of living in Michigan would have it, about 2 hours before the ceremony it was not only raining but …..pouring. They had a backup plan that had to be executed quickly. It was amazing to see it go into motion so smoothly, guests were notified and everything fell together beautifully. Jon & Kat were all smiles as they read their vows, exchanged rings and a kiss to seal the deal. Here is the thing, outdoor weddings are a gamble but more often than not it works out. It usually clears up for at least part of it anyway as was the case with them. I’m certainly not discouraging outdoor weddings (because I absolutely love them) but to remind brides to ALWAYS have a back up plan. A nice lady approached Kat in the lobby of the hotel shortly before we began the photos and said “You know what it means when it rains on your wedding day?” ….and Kat responds “Tell me.”…..to which the lady replies “Money. Lots of it.”…..Hmmmm……LET IT RAIN!!! 🙂
As you can see, we have no shortage of beautiful images, we had plenty of time outdoor for photo ops. Shelly Johnson is the designer for the amazing flowers and reception is at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville which is wonderfully spacious, terrific food & an amazing staff.
Jon & Kat, it was great working with you and I wish you two all the best!
