A Vintage-Inspired Wedding at The Cheney Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Zac Sepanik (25 and in marketing) and Kaley Sepanik (23 and in banking) met through Kaley's cousin when Zac happened to go to the local restaurant where Kaley worked. For their first date, Zac took Kaley to Yesterdog, a famous hotdog place in Grand Rapids, MI. Years later, Zac propposed to Kaley at an art and sculpture garden and then treated her to a manicure for showing off her new ring. Zac surprised Kaley by having family and friends ready to celebrate their engagement at Yesterdog. They closed off the night with everyone at a fancier restaurant where they enjoyed champagne and discussed how excited they were. Zac and Kaley decided to get married at their local church, Carpenter's House Outreach Church in Hudsonville, MI. "It was certainly the obvious choice, as that is our home," Kaley said. They had their reception nearby at The Cheney Place in Grand Rapids, MI. With Zac wanting a classic look for the wedding, Kaley opted for a strapless ball gown with a sweetheart neckline while Zac wore a black suit with a white bow tie. "Our wedding style was somewhat romantic, vintage, with a splash of eclectic," Kaley said. Kaley gave her vendors most of the control allowing them to use their creativity when designing the day. The decor was simple and minimal. The color palette was purple and white. White table clothes dressed the dining tables with purple accents. Centerpieces were small white chrysanthemums and pink delphiniums bouquets. Instead of focussing on the decor, Zac and Kaley wanted their guests to really celebrate. "The main theme of the wedding was "Love is FUN," Kaley said. They had ?a magician perform, a photobooth with funny props and glow sticks to ensure their guests were really enjoying themselves. With a simple, classic style mixed with a sense of comedy, Zac and Kaley's wedding day was a day entirely suited for them.
