Congratulations Lisa and Jeff!  What a beautiful day in downtown Grand Rapids! This was such an elegant and laid back celebration! Lisa and Jeff met at a construction management class. They were together for two and a half years before Jeff and the kiddos proposed. They bought land for their new house and while taking the kids there to check things out, they all got on their knees and asked, "Will You Marry Us?"

My favorite parts about their day... Definitely the humorous poses that both Jeff and Lisa would surprise me with, making me laugh the whole day. Jeff's face when they entered the reception to celebrate with their nearest and dearest was hysterical.  I loved the closeness of the families. It was a mish mash of little girls with grandmas and grandpas, uncles, aunts... I LOVED that they somehow got The Killer Flamingos to play! How cool was that?! That was a blast from my past, on the east side. I also was bent over laughing at the uncles dancing. The couple at the end of this preview... Their faces! Fearlessly gettin' down! It was hilarious.

Since I gotta give it to amazing women entrepreneurs, please make sure you check out Lisa's shop, for creative fashion and jewelry finds! 

Best wishes to your wonderful new family! Thank you so much for choosing me to document your story.

Posh Petals, Grand Rapids

I had the pleasure of hanging out and chatting about weddings with Elyse and Kayla, from Posh Petals, the other day. What a fun place that is to work! They even have bunnies! 

As an entrepreneur, I am always looking to promote other women entrepreneurs and utilize their skill and talent in my business as well as personal life. "Grow the Good"! Elizabeth Schenk, the owner, started this floral business in her basement and has taken this company to a well-known household name in this area, with a team of fun employees. That is amazing. Their adorable shop is located at 806 Bridge St NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504.

So, today I am giving a shout out to Posh Petals, in Grand Rapids, for your floral needs, but also your PLANNING needs. Yep, Elyse is one of the event planners and she is wonderful. They also just hired on another planner as well. You can choose from a variety of options, including a "day of" option, where they will help coordinate and be there with you on the big day. 

Also, Posh Petals does amazing things for corporate events as well. Did you know that they will keep track of your employees' work anniversaries and send flowers annually for you? Yeah. Amazing, right?! 

When asked the deeper meaning behind their work, Elyse and Kayla were smiling to respond, "It's the joy that it brings people. You see their mood lift instantly. They even get emotional. We make a direct impact in a small way." 

Yes, they do. Here are some samples of weddings that I have worked with Posh Petals. If you would like to see the full weddings, please check out these links:
