Taylor + Matthew | Elegant, Mansion Wedding | Venue3Two | Grand Rapids, MI

July 12, 2023

The guests slowly began to arrive, filling the venue with laughter and greetings of friends and family alike. Staff members finished their final touches for both the ceremony and reception spaces as the time for Taylor and Matt’s wedding grew closer. But while the hustle and bustle was near to reaching a fever pitch, a soft, sweet moment was taking place on the other side of Venue3Two’s grounds. Tucked quietly around a corner, two people stood holding hands and sharing the words that their hearts had longed to say for so long. Although they couldn’t see each other quite yet, this perfect moment was just enough to help them make it to the ceremony when they would see each other for the first time.

Taylor and Matt instantly stood out to us when Taylor shared with us that she was planning a surprise picnic for Matt during their engagement shoot. However, we quickly found out that the same thoughtfulness could be found in Matt as well, as each aspect of their day came together in a day that felt like it was straight out of a fairy tale. From hearing their vows to watching them walk back down the aisle as husband and wife, we felt like we had a front row seat to something truly magical. Although a wedding only happens in one day, Taylor and Matt made the very most of that day, and Venue3Two was an important piece of making that possible.

It was almost impossible to believe that such a beautiful venue could exist just outside of Grand Rapids, but Venue3Two goes above and beyond to make a lasting impression on anyone who visits. Built almost 100 years ago, the mansion exudes a timeless ambiance which welcomes guests to make themselves at home either in the conservatory or out on the garden patio. From the beautiful stone walls to the elegant wooden interior accents, Venue3Two was the perfect canvas for Taylor and Matt’s wedding day.

Taylor and Matthew, it has been both our joy and our honor to spend the last year with you as you have walked this beautiful journey towards your wedding day. As we have gotten to know you, we love how the both of you have so much to offer to the world, while still staying humble and kind with those around you. We can only see a bright, beautiful future for you as you begin your new life in a new state as the new Mr. and Mrs. Schuch.

All our best!

J + A
