WEDDING: Chris and Merrill

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Back in November, I was asked to photograph this really great wedding.  That bride had a sister, Merrill.  Four months later, it was her turn.  Two wonderful celebrations done as uniquely as their personalities.  With a March snowfall that dusted Grand Rapids, Chris and Merrill shared their wedding day with thousands of St. Patrick’s Day revelers.  Joey, their dog, made an appearance, too.  But my favorite part of the day was when Merrill surprised Chris (and Chris’s family) with a video from his sister who is deployed.  And I must say, that this couple had the best first dance song of all time.  Chris and Merrill, may happiness continue to follow you all the way to Japan.
