{09.13.2008} Congratulations Steve & Lori!

Saturday was crazy! Lori and Steve are amazing. The weather posed some challenges for planned outdoor pictures, but it didn't dampen the festivities!

Ceremony took place at Grand Valley State University at the Cook-DeWitt Center. It's been awhile since I've been out there and forgot how long that walk (in the rain carrying equipment) was from the parking lots...still the same, as beautiful as ever! Reception followed at The Bluffs in Grand Rapids.

I love this dress all the way around. After getting it hung I couldn't figure out why areas were not lining up; then found out they weren't supposed to! Very unique rousing. (Did I say that right?)

Touch-ups are always necessary before walking down the aisle... when you're the flower girl!

Beautiful. I love the simplicity of this chapel. Even on dark days the light is amazing.

These two. It was a given there would be some laughter during the ceremony.

After the ceremony we grabbed umbrellas and took a short walk over to the Student Services Center.

One of my favorite parts of the day is the first dance. It's when they are the only two people in the room and they can focus 100% on each other.

Just a reminder about what we discussed before I left...we'll just call it a "puddle jump" extension!

Thank you for such a wonderful day! I hope you were able to enjoy the rest of your weekend before heading back to the grind. I can't wait to hear about your honeymoon later this fall!
