Grand Rapids, Michigan | Winter Elopement at Frederik Meijer Gardens

When your best friend (and the person who married you!) asks you to help photograph an elopement and get some behind the scenes photos for her, you can’t say no! Rachel of Rachel Kaye Photography also offers to officiate as well as photograph weddings and elopements.

I had so much fun photographing this gorgeous elopement at Frederik Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan. These two seriously have a story book love story. A girl from Michigan and a guy from Australia meeting in Europe and falling in love. Thanks again Rachel for having me tag along with you. If you’re needing an awesome officiant, Rachel is amazing (and even moves out of the way for that special first kiss!!)
