Downtown Market Wedding – Grand Rapids, Michigan

December 10, 2020

Like most 2020 couples, Kaitlyn & Austin had very different plans originally.
Despite all the changes, their tiny Tuesday wedding was absolutely perfect.

Kaitlyn & Austin had an original wedding date of September 12th 2020. As the year went on and things still weren’t looking up, they decided to scratch the big party and pivot to a tiny (17 people to be exact) Tuesday wedding a month early! They even had to switch their venue. The evening looked much different than they planned. With the new feel for their wedding day, Kaitlyn prepared a celebration that was both thoughtful and stunning. The greenhouse vibes at Downtown Market Grand Rapids and the tablescapes by Events by I Candy and Gigi & Laclede paired together perfectly. Keep scrolling to see the results! The on-site vendor team included Steph Photo Co. (see her amazing work below), TruVision Studios, and yours truly – The Best Day Details for day of coordination.

Kaitlyn’s review of The Best Day Details

“As my husband (eek!) and I reflect on our tiny Tuesday wedding, we both agree that one of the best decisions we made for our day was hiring The Best Day Details LLC for day of coordination. Emily is outstanding and, after my initial call with her, I felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. During our subsequent calls, she helped us iron out the details and brought perspective that made our day even better. Emily is willing to do whatever she can to make the day go smoothly and she literally was moving and working so hard the entire day of our wedding (making sure we were hydrated, handing out tips, managing our playlist, you name it!). Her hard work did not go unnoticed and our guests also were so thankful for her. If you’re on the edge about day of coordination, DO IT. We are over the moon grateful for Emily and her team and would do it 100 times over again.”

Kaitlyn spent the morning at the JW Marriott in Downtown Grand Rapids.
Kaitlyn did not have a bridal party due to the small size of her wedding, but she made sure her best friend could share the day with her!
Father/Daughter first looks are always a good idea.
Kaitlyn’s bouquet was created by a family friend. I got to meet her the morning of the wedding to pick up the beautiful arrangements.
Downtown Market needs very little added to its natural beauty.
Kaitlyn’s little brother got to be a part of the ceremony. What an honor!
I always encourage couples to take a few minutes alone after being announced as husband and wife. These are the moments we live for.
Kaitlyn swapped out her skirt for the second half of the wedding. Did you spot the difference?
Kaitlyn’s brothers brought all the energy to the party!
This first dance photo is my all time favorite!
