Fall Indoor Wedding Holland, Michigan | Brooke & Tanner

Brooke and Tanner were married on a crisp October Saturday at Holland Fish & Game Club in Holland, Michigan. Their day went absolutely amazing and ended with a great party!

We first arrived at the Country Inn where Tanner was staying with his groomsmen. We gathered up his details and took them down to the lobby area to photograph them. We used the grey couch as a backdrop and we were pleasantly surprised that the couch had a very similar texture to Tanners vest! After that, we took some photos of Tanner getting ready. He wore all black with a dark gray textured vest and burgundy tie.

Brooke was getting ready at an Air-Bnb a few minutes from the hotel. We took photos of her details and putting on her stunning dress with her mother’s help. Her dress was beautiful! It had a large skirt with sparkles and lace. Her bridesmaids wore elegant burgundy dresses with sleeves. Everybody’s hair and makeup was looking their best thanks to Molly + Co! At the Air-Bnb we also met up with Aleshia and Ivy from Aleshia B Videography. They were so great to work with throughout the day!

Once we arrived to Holland Fish & Game Club Brooke did a first look with her father. We set him up inside the gazebo and had Brooke stand behind him. At the count of three we had him turn to look at her. They immediately hugged and began to tear up. We let them have some time to chat under the gazebo and then went and got Tanner for their first touch. We set Tanner up behind large tree and then had Brooke on the opposite side. They held hands and read their vows to each other. They were beautifully written and emotional.

The ceremony was held inside the venue. They were married under a large wooden arbor with pretty fall themed flowers from Lings Moment and draped with ivory and terracotta fabric. Their golden retriever played a cute part in the ceremony as he pranced down the aisle with the ring bearer and flower girls. The ceremony was short and sweet and full of love! We then took the bridal party outside for photos next to the several ponds and wooded areas the venue had. After we finished with the bridal party we took some portraits of the couple outside. Brooke and Tanner LOVE Taco Bell so we had plans to make a stop and take photos! So we all hopped in the car to meet them there. We all enjoyed tacos and some Baja Blast after we took some very fun photos with the couple. 

We made it back just in time for the DJ (Pahle Entertainment) to announce the bridal party which was very fun! Each bridesmaid and groomsmen came in with something fun and unique. One of which was them dressed up as dinosaurs! Next, dinner was served but not before the couple took photos with each table! Dinner was catered by Distinctive Catering and was very tasty! They had beautiful floral cupcakes from Lakeside Sweets for dessert as well.

After dinner Brooke and Tanner shared their first dance together followed by the father daughter dance. For the mother son dance, Tanner had asked that all the mothers and sons that were there to go to the dance floor and dance because his mother had passed away. The song that they all danced to was a recording of Tanner’s mom singing a beautiful song. Definitely one of the more touching moments of the night. They also did and anniversary dance and a dollar dance. Lots of dancing! Then the party really started! The DJ did an amazing job! The dance floor was pretty packed and even a few dinosaurs made an appearance!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Jurski! We hope your marriage is as fun and full of surprises as your amazing wedding day was!
