Christine + Thomas // New Vintage Place Grand Rapids Wedding

Christine and Thomas were married on the rainiest – coldest – dreariest day in West Michigan. But like always – sometimes the most unexpected things turn into the most beautiful things. I love the details of a rainy day. Umbrellas, window rain droplets and the extra level of coziness that couples have because they are truly trying to keep each other warm. If every bride were as accommodating and incredible as Christine – I don’t think I would ever take a day off. I’ve known her since middle school (I think?!) and as long as I’ve known her it’s incredibly apparent how she puts others first. Her wedding day was more about everyone else than her – and I love that so much about her heart. Shout out to some incredible vendors as well. venue: New Vintage Place desserts: Cakabakery florals: Damsel Floral coordinator: All Buttoned Up Events
