I met Geena and Daniel over a year ago and have been looking forward to their wedding! Both of them are architectures and so naturally they loved unique buildings. Their ceremony was held at a unique wedding venue in Michigan: the Grand Rapids Downtown Market. What I loved about this venue is that the ceremony site is set up uniquely with circular seating so all guests are able to have a good view of the ceremony. It also requires minimal decor given all the lush greenery inside of the greenhouse!

Geena and Daniel have been dating for 8 years but as you can see from the photos below, they’re still very much in love:

This was an Irish-American wedding and as a tradition, the groom pins the family’s fabric onto the bride’s dress:

We then headed to a nearby park and Geena surprised Daniel by taking off her wedding skirt (underneath the skirt was an elegant dress):

Party time! We then headed to the Bissell Tree House at the John Ball Zoo where the reception was held:

Riding up the funicular to the reception area was so much fun!

The Bissell Tree House was on the very top and had a fantastic view of the city. The building has a slanted side and was so unique!
