The Cheney Place Vintage Wedding | Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer | Lauren & Zeke

When I arrived at The Cheney Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I was completely blown way every time I turned a new corner. Seriously brides if you have not checked this venue out for your wedding DO IT NOW! Lauren and Zeke could not have picked a more fitting venue for their occasion! Their wedding was a completely intimate day with their closest family and friends and everyone could just see the love that these two had for each other ALL DAY!!! As you scroll through Lauren and Zeke's day you will see so many wedding portraits where Lauren is looking at her groom and just radiating from one year to the next and then you would turn to see Zeek just soaking it all in! 

We do have to point out Lauren's AMAZING Vera Wang PINK WEDDING DRESS!!! Come on now ladies... Can we just applaud this woman?? Lauren killed it this day with her vintage inspired updo paired with that dress and THOSE LASHES!!! I am just in LOVE with all of her bridal portraits! 

With that said I am going to just let you enjoy this day through portraits! Don't forget to let us know what you think below and as always we want to give a shot out to all of the amazing vendors that help put this day together (and if we missed one please let us know and we will update)

What to do when your guests ignore your "unplugged" wedding?- Kaye's Photography Grand Blanc Michigan

Always make sure that you have it well known that you want your ceremony or entire wedding to be "unplugged"!! Throw a note in your invitations to all the guests, post signs at your wedding, put it on your website, and even put it in your ceremony program.

If you asked your guests to stay off their phones during your ceremony and then spot a few guests misbehaving once you get your photos back there isn't really anything you can do guest wise. Talk with your photographer to see if there is a chance the phones can be edited out. If not then crop the photo creatively to put the focus on you and not the phones or find other angles of the photo that doesn't show the phones as well!!

Did you request that your guests not share anything on social media? If you spot them online shoot them a quick call or text and politely ask them to remove the photos. Let them know that you just want the event to be private and you are so happy that they were able to attend but these are your wishes and fair enough because it was your wedding day after all!!
