This month’s styled shoot, we featured the beautiful Grand Rapids wedding venue, Venue3two with several amazing vendors in the West Michigan area. October is one of the most beautiful months to be married in Michigan. The fall colors peak during this month creating a beautiful color palette of rich jewel tones that compliments any wedding. But those pops of colors look especially good when paired as the backdrop of a stately manor like Venue3two and then brought to life with the skills of some amazing wedding vendors.
We got to work with Glamour & Grit again who poured their heart and soul in creating not only the gorgeous wedding boutique but provided and decorated the beautiful wedding arch! The incredibly delicious cakes were provided by Deirdre’s Cakes & Bakes. We love how Deirdre can make a cake look like a work of watercolor art. Her cupcakes looked perfect with the tablescape provided by Gigi And Laclede and linen by Special Occasions. And no tablescape would be complete without the beautifully designed menus and invitation suite by Emily Feldman Calligraphy.
One of the most important decisions of your wedding is picking out the perfect dress and Timeless Bridal Boutique just happens to have a wardrobe of them! We love, love, LOVE how elegant and whimsical her wedding dresses are! And Jackie looked gorgeous with makeup done by Veil of Grace and hair styled by American Roots Hair Design. We love seeing these two vendors on the morning of our bride’s wedding day because we know they are going to look incredible!
As wedding photographers, we have this wonderful opportunity to explore and visit many wedding venues in Michigan. And there are A LOT of wedding venues with new venues popping up every year. So we get asked all the time which venues we like the best and depending on what you are looking for, there is something for everyone. But if we could do our wedding all over again, where would we get married? Hands down, we would get married at Venue3Two. In fact, we plan to renew our vows at Venue3Two on our anniversary.
There are many reasons why we absolutely adore Venue3Two. The staff is friendly and invested in making your wedding day the absolute best day of your life, the venue is positively GORGEOUS and is a renovated 1920 historic mansion, the aesthetics are so classy and sophisticated, the bridal suite is basically designed to for stunning and elegant portraits. *Ahem* Excuse us while we pick this list up off the floor…
Well, you get the idea but don’t just take our word for it. See the beautiful images we created with the help of this incredible team at Grand Rapids Styled Shoots below! These are just a few of our favorites!
