Alexis + Andrew
Alexis + Andrew were married on one of the coldest days in November at the Downtown Market greenhouse in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The whole day was filled with overwhelming emotions, faith, family and friends. I worked as the second photographer for the amazing and kind Emilee Kristine Photography.
Alexis wore a floral crown the color of fall leaves, her long brown hair lightly curled into waves. All day it had been raining and snowing, and there was even sleet and hail at one point! How she managed to stay looking so flawless in all of those elements is beyond me. Their whole wedding party were such troopers going through the freezing wind and weather for photos.
Before seeing his bride, Andrew was visibly nervous and anticipating the big moment. He was so excited, but the emotions are overwhelming and even surprised him. It made for the most emotional, intimate first look I have ever been honored to capture.
Just before their first look, Andrew tearfully asked if they could stand back-to-back and read each other's handwritten vows before seeing each other for the first time.
