The Rice | Michigan Wedding Photographer


May 28, 2022

Kaitlyn and Chris had the most stunning wedding at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice. Every detail fit them so well and even the venue seemed to have been made for them! Everything came together and brought Kaitlyn and Chris the most perfect day with their friends and family.

Kaitlyn spent the morning getting ready for the day with her girls and her mother. She had such great make up artists working with her to get her ready for her day! While Kaitlyn was finishing up, Chris had the coolest groomsmen suite with floor to ceiling mirrors. We grabbed photos of all the guys out on the terrace before setting up Kaitlyn and Chris for their first look. Chris was so excited and emotional to see Kaitlyn I was almost tearing up behind the camera! Their smiles were infectious that day!

The running joke was that Chris doesn’t like her combat boots, but that does not stop Kaitlyn. So she brought out jeweled combat boots as a surprise during her vows to him. Take a look at that GIF below!

They spent the rest of the night dancing all night long and lastly had a confetti exit before I headed home! This day was magical at The Rice with Kaitlyn and Chris! I felt so lucky to be apart of it!
