You may have seen these two familiar faces back in May! (Viewing their wedding here)! Lauren + Nate got married in downtown Grand Rapids earlier this year and decided to hold off their big celebration for later so more family and friends could join in on the fun.
Their day started at The Rutledge, a new industrial venue in the heart of Grand Rapids! Once the Mr + Mrs were ready, they hopped onto a party bus with their wedding party for drinks and dancing. Driving around the city with their closest friends was one thing they were looking forward to the most and they finally got to do it!
We hopped off at one point for portraits and goodness, Lauren looked so stunning! I couldn’t get over her faux fur wrap, such a fun add (and necessary with the chilly temps)! Their wedding party was full of so much cheer and they were hands down one of the best to hang out with…especially on that party bus! 😆
Their reception had so many smiling faces and I am so happy to have joined in on their big celebration this year. Lauren and Nate, you two have been the best and I cannot thank you enough for having me. I cannot wait to see whats next for you guys. Grand Rapids has quickly turned into one of my favorite cities and it’s all because of YOU. Thank you for EVERYTHING and congratulations again!!
And that concludes my 2021 wedding season, what a wonderful year it was and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Thank you Lauren + Nate, and thank you all for giving me such an incredible year!
Lauren’s girls were full of so much sass and good looks! Also love how they all had the faux fur covers!
This location was so picture perfect, the white ground AND walls, literally a dream! Though we didn’t have snow, it felt like a wonderland. Also, couldn’t help but share just about all of Lauren’s bridal portraits, she’s stunning!
I forgot to snag one of their favors and I am so bummed because they had local CARMEL CORN! That is one thing I absolutely adore about Lauren + Nate, their support for local businesses in Grand Rapids!
