When it’s super cold a blustery but you want a cozy green engagement shoot in Grand Rapids, you go to Meijer Gardens! Ashley and Josh are getting married here next June and wanted to get snuggly here for their engagement photos too! The lovely thing at MG is that there are tons of rooms filled with so much variety of plants and flowers. They have a large tropical room, cacti, victorian, and even had their holiday display up. It gets pretty busy but we went early and missed some of the crowds!
After being inside we trekked through the freshly fallen snow and went out to the spot where their ceremony will take place. I loved being able to be in that space with them as they get excited about their wedding. Ashley went to Kendall and is now an art educator and her sweet personality is so perfectly matched! Josh was actually the one who reached out to me and I absolutely LOVE when grooms are a huge part of the planning process! His organized and cheerful personality is such a perfect compliment to Ashley!
Needless to say these two were a blast to work with and I’m beyond excited to shoot their intimate wedding in just a few short months! Next time there just won’t be any snow 😉
