Shane + Jen | Grand Rapids, Michigan | Intimate Barn Elopement

mid-west based traveling wedding and elopement photographer

Oct 20, 2017 | Weddings

I have known Jen for quite some time (she actually used to babysit me!), so it was so special to be apart of her and Shane’s intimate wedding. Shane and Jen were originally planning on getting married on my family’s farm in a lane between two horse pastures. Unfortunately, the weather had a different idea. It poured for most of the day, so the wedding was moved inside to our horse barn.

I love the simplicity of an intimate wedding. Just family, maybe a few friends. The people that you know will really be with you throughout your marriage. This way a wedding can really be focused completely on the couple. Jen and Shane had a small reception afterwards at a restaurant downtown just for family with plans to have a larger reception for their extended family and friends later that year.

Make sure you pay attention to Shane when he sees Jen for the first time that day!
