I have been beyond lucky with fantastic couples this year. Emily + Ryan made the entire day their own with their own little touches. Their absolutely stunning church was a great start for their guests traveling to Muskegon (seriously, this church was amazing). Their reception followed right down the street at The Century Club Ballroom. Emily's glam and pink touches really played out well in the ornate and newly remolded late 1800's building. I absolutely loved the way the pink sequin tablecloth on the head table looked with the color of the brick. Although, I wasn't able to see it or photograph it, Emily told me that Ryan refinished his great grandmothers vanity and gave it to Emily as a wedding gift the night before their wedding. How stinkin' cute and thoughtful is that? That's a guy right there! Some of my other favorite moments of the day were the guys USA socks representing the US in the first day of the olympics, Emily's pins on her bouquet, when Emily surprised Ryan during their portraits with her something blue which was Mrs. Hoogstra embroidered in the underneath of her dress, Ryan's speech thanking everyone for coming and expressing the best day of his life, and the very special (and yummy) desserts that were all made by different family members. I just love these two and I hope you enjoy their little wedding preview!
