Can I just say how much I adore this family? I can’t get enough of them! Chelsea and Jared are just so down to earth and Ava and Aza (the twins) are just about as sweet as they come. I’ve been looking forward to their wedding for quite a while, but it was worth the wait!
I started my day with the Bride Squad at Chelsea’s home in North Lima, Ohio while the guys hung out and watched football at the best man’s place. The vibe was chill as we did our thing shooting. Chelsea kept her details simple with just earrings for accessories, but let me tell you - they were SHOW STOPPING earrings. And not only hers, but she also gifted all of her bridesmaids with statement earrings. Umm, yes please! As if that wasn’t enough, the flower girl dresses had me screaming on the inside. They looked like they came out of a fairy tale with the lace, ruffles and a beaded sash. I was sooo excited to see it all come together at the barn because everything 👏 was 👏 perfect 👏
Fast forward to the barn at the ceremony. The weather was warm and sunny without rain in site! Friends and family gathered in the barn to witness this beautiful union. The ceremony was simple and sweet and very much a reflection of Chelsea and Jared. And after the ceremony? One hell of a party!
There was indoor and outdoor seating, which was a perfect way to enjoy the nice weather in the evening. The outdoor tent had the bar and incredible food from Aulizio’s (hands down my favorite catering company in this area - though I may be partial because they catered my wedding ;] But the food is so bomb!) The drinks were flowing at the bar as lots of dancing took place inside the barn on the dance floor. And when guests needed a break from the dancing and wanted something sweet, there was the classic Youngstown cookie table AND a donut wall with fresh White House Fruit Farm donuts (ohhh yeah!). It doesn’t get much better than that!
Congrats Chelsea and Jared!! I’m so glad I could share in the joy of your wedding day with you! <3
