Kelsey + Jake
Planning with Kelsey and Jake was truly a dream job. From the moment that their inquiry popped up in our mailbox to our very last hug goodbye, we couldn’t have asked for a better couple or a better team of vendors. Their wedding had it all: beautiful details (check!), stunning location (check!), a gorgeous color palette (check!) and blooms galore (check, check, and check!).
Kelsey and Jake are a warm, hilarious, and incredibly intelligent couple. Every meeting we had was filled with laughter (at one point, we all made a collective decision that Jake had to limit his jokes because we would get too sidetracked!) and their goal to have a wedding that was both beautiful and logistically sound was music to our planning ears.
With busy careers, and planning out-of-state, we stepped in to help design a wedding celebration that felt elegant and warm, and reflected Kelsey and Jake’s playful nature. Years prior to their engagement, Kelsey and Jake had gone a Valentine’s date to the Lincoln Park Conservatory, so when they found the Greenhouse at Downtown Market in Grand Rapids, they knew it was the perfect spot to celebrate their marriage. The Greenhouse set the stage for a Memorial Day weekend wedding overflowing with beauty, and today we’re sharing our favorite images from Rachelle Rae Photography.
