Tim & Lora | St. Mary’s Visitation Catholic Wedding in Byron Center

I am so excited to share Tim & Lora’s St. Mary’s Visitation Catholic wedding in Byron Center for a few reasons!! First, because it was beautiful, of course! Second, this is my church where I grew up!! I love when I get to photograph here 🙂

Tim & Lora both claimed to not be “photo people”. Well that right there is a big green flag for me! In my experience, any time I’ve heard that, the couple has been AMAZING in front of the lens! Tim & Lora were no exception! They opted not to have any getting ready photos taken, so we started with a first look once they got to the church. From that point on, they were all smiles!

It’s just a small parish in a tiny farm community but it sure does show off <3

For it being October, the day was actually pretty warm, but the clouds rolled in and out, creating some dramatic skies for their portraits!

They wanted to hit up a few of their local haunts, so they rented a New Salem Corn Maze bus to drive around in after the ceremony!

First stop was the Countryside Inn, just down the road from the church!
