We heart Grand Rapids

What an amazing weekend. It was one of those weekends that I was sad to see end. Friday night Garth and I went out to dinner and I enjoyed a Samuel Adam's cherry wheat beer, my new fave! (Yeah, I didn't cook. Surprise surprise!)Saturday we packed up and hit the road for a fun trip in Grand Rapids. We stayed at the Amway Grand on the Grand River. Fabulous! By far our favorite hotel yet! We were treated like royalty. We even had someone come in and draw the curtains and put chocolates on our pillows before bed! WOW! See why I'm in love with this hotel:


The lobby:

After settling into our room we were anxious to check out the beautiful surroundings! Here is Garth going through the Skywalk:Which leads to where the wedding was held:

The JW lobby:

And the wedding!!!!

Party time!

It was a fabulous wedding! We had a blast. My camera died so this is all I have to document the day. But we bought batteries the next day and took a few pics before leaving GR:


Did I mention Garth had champagne and chocoalte covered strawberries delievered to our room after the wedding? It was his Sweetest Day gift. I heart him so much. And we heart Grand Rapids.
