In The Details

Wedding Planning

In the Details Weddings aim is to redefine the wedding planning process through their close attention that will leave you stress free and fully present during this precious season of your life. Wedding planning is usually deemed as stressful for one reason or another. A tight budget, difficult family members, having a vision but not knowing how to bring it to life, etc. Well, Emily from In the Details Weddings wants to change the narrative. Hire her for your wedding day if you want to enjoy your engagement season like you never thought possible!

My name is Emily Wentland and I am the owner of In the Details Weddings LLC, based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I graduated from GVSU with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management and a minor in Spanish. During my time at GVSU I discovered my love for not only entrepreneurship, but for weddings and all the details that come with it. I have a passion for quality experiences which is why I aim to create seamless and personalized experiences for each of my brides. The wedding day is not just about the end result but the entire process it takes to get there. I believe that marriage is a true gift from The Lord and is something that is to be celebrated to the fullest! I hope that each of my brides are able to see more of God's goodness in His design for marriage in this season. Allow me to focus on the little details while you focus on the true meaning of marriage and preparing well for it! We all dream of having a fairytale wedding, and girl, trust me when I say I want that for you. You give me the vision and I will give you the wedding you have always dreamed of! Or make me dream it up for you...I love a challenge. Let's make this thing happen! I am so looking forward to chatting with you and planning every last detail of your big day!

Kellie Hetler Photography

Photography

If life has taught me anything it is exactly this - perfection is not the goal. Contentment is. Being happy and finding beauty in each moment is.

That is how I approach each photograph I take - with the goal of capturing it perfectly imperfect. Just the way it was meant to be. Beautiful in it's flaws, working to help the person in front of the camera feel great as who they are. You are beautiful, I promise.

Wife | Believer | Creative
Mom to two.
Sister to three.
Aunt to twenty eight.

After photographing weddings for over fifteen years, I'm ready to capture each moment with intention. Creating images that you'll not only love now but love more in twenty years as their value continues to rise. Memories are priceless - an investment you'll never regret!!

Hello couples! We are Two Birds Media and we can't wait to tell your love story.

We take such deep joy in capturing beautiful moments and we are always thrilled when couples are just as romantic at heart as we are.

You want to dip your brand new spouse while snow cascades down around you? We got you. You want to recreate your parents' favorite wedding photo? We are already scouting a spot for the shot.

At the end of the day, all that most couples want is a videographer that makes them feel comfortable. Someone who makes videography feel effortless. Book with Two Birds Media and you will not only feel comfortable and at ease, but you will have classic, beautiful videos that tell your story the way you remember it- timelessly... and with a little bit of magic. ♡
