I love being a wedding photographer. The wedding day and preparation are so much fun and special for me (yes, you can call me crazy). There’s always so much anticipation, excitement and beautiful chaos that I completely enjoy. While wedding days are wonderful, I think engagement sessions with my couples are equally as exciting. This is usually the time throughout the whole process where I really really get to know my couples. Plus, we’re able to slow down and take our time navigating the session and really get to have a lot of fun in the process….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
