Norma + Andy {Grand Haven Wedding Reception Photography}


It is really a strange thing going through these and realizing your baby sister is MARRIED!!! But it is also awesome…so awesome. She couldn’t have picked a more perfect person for her. I still remember their engagement. Andy had sent Norma a letter in August (a few years back) asking her to not open until her birthday. On her birthday she opened it and it was this beautiful note that ended in him asking her to be his wife. Like WOW…. I was so excited for them how stinking cute is it. Then their marriage was just amazing. So fun to be with a small group of close family in California and watch them get married. So onto our reception… we decided to have a small family/friend gathering at our farm at home to celebrate their marriage. Between my mom and I we came up with a color theme and the idea of doing a rustic farm kind of thing. Super thanks to my dad for getting all the big technical stuff done (like the zazzy dance floor and the sweet idea to use the dead birch tree for decoration!). I ended up having such a great time and even am in some of these pictures thanks to my amazing ‘cousin’ Lauryn who kept stealing my camera :D. I made all of the vases for flowers and even cut all the flowers/weeds myself (they make for some pretty amazing floral arrangements). I actually pulled out all the crafty things from my insane craft collection and even put together a photo booth using more items from my craft room!  We replicated the Santa Maria Barbecue in our own way and my dad even made the grill he cooked the meat on….
