McKenna + Josiah // March 2019

McKenna and Josiah’s wedding was beautiful. With the ceremony and reception located at the vintage inspired Cheney Place , and wedding portraits taken in the stunning greenhouse at Grand Rapids Downtown Market, we knew this wedding was going to be one for the books. The floral decor featured heavy greens and lush, white blooms, such as garden roses, ranunculus, and anemones. We loved the copper arch, garland on the farm tables, and gold accents!

McKenna and Josiah, congratulations on your marriage, and we wish you all of the happiness!

Avery + Mike // Michigan Beach Elopement Shoot

Lately, we have been loving everything about elopements. The simplicity, intimacy, and romanticism that elopements bring are just a few reasons why they are becoming much more popular. Better yet, our home state is the perfect place for an elopement! Michigan is full of beautiful forests, beaches, and parks just around the corner. Elopements also give you the chance to really express yourself through your details. We are loving the big bouquets, stunning backdrops (hello Lake Michigan!), lacy dresses, and intricate table settings. Plus, the pictures you can take are beautiful. With a flexible timeline, there is no pressure to rush the important moments.

We hope you enjoy the following photos from our beach elopement shoot. Vendors are found at the end of this post. If these photos don’t tempt you to get eloped, I’m not sure what will!

Sarah & Robin // February 2019

We started off February with Sarah and Robin’s stunning winter themed wedding at the Gull Lake Country Club. After a couple weeks of harsh weather, the sun was finally shining and the room was filled with so much natural light - our favorite! It was the perfect day for a wedding!

For the decor, Sarah had opted to go with more traditional Christmas greens such as cedar, pine, and fir, along with white focal blooms and accented with pine cones. While we battled with sap covered hands the whole week, it was so worth it! The dark colors complemented the burgundy bridesmaid dresses so well, and of course, everything smelled like Christmas.

Enjoy these beautiful photos from Larsh Collective Photography!

The garland on the head table looked so lush. Obsessed!

Fun fact, Sarah’s dad built the beautiful arch! We were very impressed! The greenery we added looked so amazing on it.

The cake was so cute! If you have no idea what Spikeball is, we highly recommend googling it. The perfect summer activity for the beach!

Kendra and Anthony's Magical Winter Wedding

Remember back in December when we were all wondering where the snow was? Well, we found it! Michigan is definitely turning into Antarctica this week, and I’m thankful that we didn’t have this crazy weather for the weddings we had earlier in the winter! Speaking of those weddings…..we are so excited to finally be sharing this December wedding on the blog today!


Kendra and Anthony - December 1st, 2018

Kendra and Anthony’s wedding was a dream. So classy, so sophisticated, and just simply elegant. With white blooms being the focal point of the decor, the Glamour and Grit team had a fun time using various types of Roses, Hydrangeas, Ranunculus, and Calla Lilies in the arrangements. We brought in white Christmas trees onto the perimeter of the dance floor, which made for the perfect backdrop during their first dance.

They chose Dan Terpstra as their photographer, and we loved the fact that he had preview pictures for them later that night! Looking over these photos, we are so happy with how the elegance of the day was captured.

We wish Kendra and Anthony a lifetime of happiness, and hope you enjoy the photos below:
