After a lovely day with Marlee & John, we packed up and headed right back down state for Kristin & Russ’ beautiful Kalamazoo wedding. Planned and styled by my amazing friend, Dee Mitchell of Elements of Elegance, I knew it was going to be a beautiful affair, and I knew we would enjoy our day with Kristin & Russ.
As they busily prepared themselves for their first look, we had time to capture a few sweet memories of them getting ready. We had some private time with just the two of them out on the Kalamazoo mall, until a few raindrops chased us away, and the bride ran barefoot across the road in all her tulle-covered glory to get under cover.
By the time we arrived at church, the rain clouds had disappeared and we had a few more minutes before their beautiful Greek Orthodox ceremony began. It was lovely to see another of these deeply traditional ceremonies, and despite a “time out” for a candle issue, everything was perfect and beautiful for these two!
Their super gorgeous reception was at the Kalamazoo Radiswoon, I mean Radisson, and had such lovely sparkly gold & navy details. The Elements of Elegance team really did a fabulous job on this one!
With a live band and delicious treats for all the guests, it was definitely a great party! Thanks Kristin & Russ for having us be a part of this amazing day!
