Brittany & Levi | Wedding Photography | Nazareth Hall | Grand Rapids, Ohio

I remember my first contact with Brittany. She was a little frantic thinking she waited too long to find their wedding photographer, but excitement grew when she found out I had her date open. The planning was on! I could see the excitement grow even more over the next couple of months as Brittany would see and comment on other wedding galleries that were posted to our blog. Soon enough, Brittany and Levi's wedding day was here. It was finally their turn!

I arrived at the gorgeous, Nazareth Hall to find Brittany and her bridesmaids getting ready in their suite upstairs. Brittany was slightly panicked about our time schedule since her dress had not arrived at the venue yet.  I assured her that we would make everything work out.  As soon as the dress arrived we dove in with her detail shots and then it was time for Brittany to become the beautiful bride!

As Brittany and her bridesmaids were busy with their final touches, Levi and his groomsmen were doing the same.

I can still see the look on Levi's face when I told him it was time for him to see Brittany. He was incredibly nervous but yet so excited. I had my assistant photographer, Chelsie, from Chelsie Hosmer Photography, take Levi outside and have him wait for his bride.  I went up to the bridal suite and found a much more relaxed bride ready to see her groom.

It was time for everything to become official! I hear wedding bells!

Brittany and Levi's son, London, was a little upset that Grandma had left him at the back of the chapel so he could take care of his Ring Bearer duties.

The nerves were now all calmed.  It was time to celebrate such a beautiful day!

Levi's daughter, Claire, like many 3 year olds, has an obsession with "Frozen".  There was no doubt that a special Daddy Daughter Dance was in order for Claire and Levi set to the music of..."Let it Go". Claire took over the dance floor, sometimes even allowing Daddy to dance with her and sing along. It was absolutely adorable!

To finish off our day, Levi had one special request, a run down the big hill behind Nazareth Hall. In all honesty, his plan was for everyone to roll down the hill but after being met with many objections he decided a run would suffice.  For a couple of the guys, including Levi, the run turned into a roll at the bottom of the steep hill anyway.
