One thing about getting engaged and planning a wedding is all of the advice people will give you. You’ve probably heard a million times, “Wedding days go by so fast and you won’t remember a thing!” or, “Make sure you have your bridal survival bag with all of the little things you might need in case of a wedding day emergency.” But what about those things they don’t tell you? That’s what this blog is all about!…Read More
There’s snow on the ground and it isn’t even Thanksgiving. Naturally, I’m over here daydreaming about warmer Fall days so I thought Erin and Shawn’s engagement session would be a perfect way to take me back to those feels! It was a cooler Fall day, but no where near 30 degrees! The fiery colors hadn’t even peaked yet, but there was just enough to get those Fall vibes and smell of the fallen leaves. Erin and Shawn chose Sapphire Creek Winery to shoot their session, and let me tell you, that venue did not disappoint! There was tons of beautiful scenery in the woods, outdoor fires to get all the cozy Fall feels and a stunning indoor area with floor to ceiling windows, soft, clean colors and, of course, wine! What could be more perfect?!…Read More
I, without a doubt, love my job. I don't think many professionals are willing to be in the wedding industry unless they are over the moon about weddings. There are some weddings that I just wish wouldn't end because they are just that much fun and just that beautiful. Paige and Cale's wedding is one of those that I could photograph over and over and over again. From the details to the sentiments to the stellar dance party, everything and I mean everything was spot-on to perfection. There is absolutely no doubt that Paige and Cale have impeccable style. They're timeless and sophisticated and pay so much attention to detail. I mean, you can just scroll down and see why I was in heaven!
We started the day at the Holiday Inn in Boardman, Ohio. The bridal suite had the absolute best group of women to surround Paige as she finished up with the final details on her outfit. Ya'll know I love a first look, especially one with a bride and her father. I'm so glad Paige had that moment with her dad. That's when the tears started that day and they didn't stop until the end of the night!
While the girls were relaxing before heading to the church, Cale and his brother/Best Man, Brian, were getting ready on the floor above. Cale had great details, too! I told you, they both have great style ;]
The ceremony took place at Poland Presbyterian Church in Poland, Ohio. Reverend Debbie performed such a beautiful ceremony! There were some show-stopping moments that totally stole the show that day. It started with both of Paige's grandmas as flower girls. Yes, they threw rose petals and it was absolutely adorable! As they came down the aisle, I looked around the church and everyone had a big smile on their faces! Then Paige and her dad made their way down the aisle and all of the happy tears came back. That's one of my favorite things to witness at a wedding!
We wrapped up pictures after the ceremony on the church grounds and then headed to Mr. Anthony's so the party could start! And boy, what a party it was! Guests traveled across the country to celebrate their union and they definitely were ready for a good time, good food, good tunes and the longest cookie table ever. It was definitely one for the record books! Congrats Paige and Cale!! <3
