Courtney + Matt | America One Event Center | Wedding | Jackson, MI

Updated: Apr 27


Their hashtag was supposed to be #batesdayever. But as they got closer and closer to their wedding day, things kept happening that were increasingly putting their wedding in jeopardy. Vendors were having to cancel due to COVID and scheduling conflicts, and an outdoor service brought up the possibility of rain coming in the middle of their big day. Other couples might have buckled under the pressure or changed their date to accommodate the changes...but not these two. Their determination and their excitement to get married kept the wedding on track, and by the time the reception had begun, their new hashtag was (quite appropriately) #batesriseabove!

We had the honor of meeting Courtney and Matt back in the summer when we met up in Kalamazoo for their engagement shoot! Our engagement shoots are some of our most important times with couples, because since we got to meet and hang out at the engagement shoot, on the wedding day, both Matt and Courtney smiled with a huge "Hey!" when they first saw us! Josh spent the first part of the day hanging out with Matt and his guys while Andrea captured all of Courtney's beautiful details. Courtney's grandpa stole the show though before the wedding, as Courtney wanted a special "first look" with not only her bridesmaids, but also her grandpa. The joy on his face lit up the entire room!
