Erik & Katie: A Colorful Fall Wedding (Grand Rapids Wedding Photography)

September 19, 2015

First of all, though it didn't start out that way, Katie couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day for her wedding. She and Erik chose the backdrop of Cannonsburg Ski Area, which is also where we did most of their engagement session back in January (it was a little cooler back then!). Katie and Erik chose wine colors for their wedding, and her bouquet from Ball Park Floral were to die for! I couldn't get enough of all the gorgeous color. Though the leaves hadn't quite started to change yet, it was perfect.

Katie and I are both crazy about organization. I have a great time working with brides who like to make a schedule and have a plan! Great minds... you know the saying ;) Though, as usual, not everything when exactly according to plan, we really had a great day working together. And Misty came along to second shoot with me for this one, so yay on that one too. I'm excited to show off their photos, so check them all out below!

Congrats to the newlyweds!
