“I keep seeing the photos, and I’m shocked it’s actually me in them. I just keep thinking ‘Wow that woman is lucky to look so good and have such a sexy man!!’ Then I’m like; ‘Holy Cow, that’s really ME!!!’” Kali & Stuart had the most gorgeous Frederik Meijer Gardens wedding and if anything could break down their wedding day, I think this quote from Kali explains it all.
You all know her as this bright, bubbly light that just makes everyone in the room feel comfortable and happy. Combine her with Stuart’s easygoing, goofy personality and you’ve got a match made in heaven!
When Stuart first reached out about their end of September wedding, it just so happened to be the only day left in September where I didn’t have a wedding. It also just so happened that Frederik Meijer Gardens had that date open as well. It just so happened that they were able to put everything together in a short amount of time. I mean heck, we were even able to make their engagement session at Frederik Meijer Gardens work out!
From the beautiful wedding details, to the flowers, to making sure that Ellie Mae was still a part of their day, to the floral wall at Frederik Meijer Gardens. I just can’t believe how these two were able to pull off one of the best weddings of the year for me! So thank you Kali & Stuart for your amazing Frederik Meijer Gardens wedding day. I would hug you all over again right now if I could!
