Downtown Grand Rapids Wedding | Chelsea + Chad | Associate Alyssa

Chelsea + Chad are people you just want to be around. They are sweet, kind-hearted, and if you know them at all, you know they are of course a lot of fun! Their ceremony was at the beautiful St. Alphonsus Parish... and when I say beautiful I mean it! Wait until you see the detail inside of this church. It was one for the books. They ended the day at the Goei Center for their reception. One of my favorite parts of the day was Chelsea and Chad's first look. Even though they weren't going to be able to see each other for long they wanted to make sure and see each other before the ceremony. They had a private moment together where they could soak it all in before saying I do. Chad's mom passed a few years back and they did so many beautiful things to honor her throughout the day; from Chad walking down the isle with a bouquet of flowers and putting it next to his dad where she would be sitting, to Chelsea having pictures of her on her bouquet, and Chad dancing with his sister and his Aunt during first dances. I heard endless great things about her throughout the day. Another highlight of their wedding was their guest book. They had a polaroid camera for guests to take their pictures with and then stick it in their guest book with a note. (I know right?! It was amazing). Chelsea + Chad had the most perfect day and they deserved it! I hope you enjoy this little preview.
