Jon + Sarah // Elegant Amway Grand Wedding
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Tradition brought Sarah and Jon back to the Amway Grand to get married in the same Ford Presidential Ballroom that Sarah’s parents were married 35 years earlier. The couple both grew up in West Michigan but didn’t meet until their lives each took them to Chicago. On their first date, seated in the very same restaurant they agreed upon, also dining there was Jon’s mother’s best friend. Serendipity. Wearing her grandmother’s earrings added more to the elegance of this classic wedding that was destined from the start.

When I first talked to Kevin and Meghan and their wedding plans, Kevin said something about having a quiet, small family and Meghan said, “and mine is large and loud!” The one thing that was the same was their love of the University of Michigan. Meghan is a graduate of U of M and Kevin’s family had been lifelong fans. The couple now lives in Boston but wanted to bring all their wedding guests together in a town and campus they cherish.
