Stetson Chapel Wedding Ceremony Loft 310 Reception

What can I say? This couple was great to work with ~ from their engagement session at GVSU to their ceremony at Stetson Chapel to their entertaining reception at Loft 310 ~ there was never a dull moment. Sarah is a girl who knows what she wants, elegant and classy! Her dress was unique and reflected her personality. Jason was animated and full of energy/soul. Kalamazoo College has many beautiful old buildings that served as stellar backdrops for their wedding photos. The love between the couple and their friends/family was evident to all.  Their first dance was perfectly choreographed and the dance floor was hopping all night! To wrap up the perfect day, a view of the cozy city of Kalamazoo from the rooftop of the Loft 310. I love my job!!!
