W&M’s elegant downtown Grand Rapids wedding began in Grand Haven, at a beautiful private estate overlooking Lake Michigan. After getting ready, the bride descended the stairs to visit her father for the first time, surrounded by friends and family who had all flown from China for the celebration. The bride and groom elected to see each other shortly thereafter, before driving to Grand Rapids in a pristine Bentley that nearly caused a traffic jam on the highway from all the onlookers. The couple exchanged vows in front of a beautiful floral arbor by Modern Day Events & Floral in a lighthearted ceremony overlooking the iconic Blue Bridge in Downtown Grand Rapids. After saying “i do,” the couple treated their guests to an uptempo reception full of dancing and carousel rides.
