An intimate rooftop ceremony with candlelight dinner was the setting for Kirsten and Keisha's 40 person wedding and reception for their closest family and friends. The couple are residents of Florida but Keisha is originally from Michigan so that brought this couple back for a fall wedding in late October. What should have been a cool day was the perfect fall day and 70 degrees. Kirsten and Keisha trusted our team to plan their wedding in 3 short months and make it an epic celebration for all those travel in for the festivities. 

We were up for the challenge and enlisted an amazing group of vendors centered around amazing food, lovely wine, a plethora of desserts and entertainment. This will forever hold a special place in our hearts because of the intimacy of it all and the feeling of an elongated experience with those closest to these special people. The couple said I do overlooking all of Grand Rapids and then transitioned down to the main floor for cocktails that were custom made for each of their pets and a handcrafted candlelit dinner lasting 2 hours. A quartet played the music for the ceremony and dinner while an amazing vocalist played for cocktail hour and then dancing. 

Everyone has to try the cheesecake from Mertens Prime at some point in their lives and all food did not disappoint. A speech broke up each of the six courses and this couple truly were surrounded by love. We feel grateful to have been a part of it all.
