Today we are sharing an exquisite Grand Rapids wedding. Christine & Eric were married at the Downtown Market Grand Rapids. Downtown Market Grand Rapids has a modern event space with a greenhouse overlooking the city. Side-note: we had the pleasure of visiting Downtown Market GR at the Trouvaille Workshop and can attest to its beauty and uniqueness. Enjoy these gorgeous photos by Laura Ford!
One of our favorite details are the bottles of wine with anniversaries they used for their guest book – how fun!
More about the wedding from the photographer Laura Ford:
Christine & Eric’s lovely late summer wedding took place at the Grand Rapids Downtown Market. This modern venue located in the heart of the city, features a rooftop greenhouse and private event space in additional to specialty vendors, weekend farmers markets, and a wine bar. The sweeping views of the city from the 2nd floor veranda are tough to beat!
Christine’s style is simple yet radiant. She wore Tom’s slippers in rose, and her dress was complete with hidden pockets. I think you will agree, she looks amazing and her smile is the best part of the ensemble! Eric and his groomsmen took cues from Christine and matched her with subtle light pink details. The fella’s kept it cool by trading suit jackets for shirtsleeves.
Pre ceremony activities included the gals dolling up at the JW Marriott Downtown, and the guys enjoying lunch at Eric’s all time favorite hangout, Founders Brewery (Grand Rapids was voted Beer City USA in 2014 after all).
After a beautiful ceremony in the greenhouse, the wedding guests adjourned to the 2nd floor event space for cocktail hour, and the bridal party slipped away for photos on the grounds of the market. Made in Michigan wine & brews were on tap, and local favorite Martha’s Vineyard handled the catering. Once the bridal party returned and dinner had been enjoyed, the party got started – the celebration lasted late into the night.
VENDOR LOVE –
