About two months ago I started this blog post fully intending to have it go live long before their first anniversary. Then my brother in law had a medical issue and open heart surgery during a pandemic and well, it’s been a helluva spring. I took a bit of a step back from the ‘busy work’ of my job to handle all of the fun things that happen when a pandemic hits just as wedding season gets underway. So I’m back, my BIL is doing great and I’ve got a pretty good system on handling 2020 couples that are wanting to shift dates. Whew! So, let’s fly back to a year ago today. When it wasn’t SNOWING like it is right now as I type this.
Emma and Cory got married on a STUNNING spring day at Secrest Arboretum. I hadn’t been there since Amber and Andrew got married there long before the tornado (and got to smoosh in a quick maternity session with them after this wedding there, so perfect). The flowers were all blooming, it was warm and SO sunny. They’ve made so many beautiful changes to the arboretum since my last visit and the area where they hold wedding ceremonies is absolutely stunning!
I can’t believe it took over 10 years to get there but Cory was the FIRST Cory I’ve had as a client! Later in 2019 I had another Cory (and will have another one this year) so it seems that the Corey/Cory draught is finally over! LOL!
One thing I really loved about Emma and Cory’s wedding is that it was a simple but lovely wedding. While they did have a reception, it wasn’t full of formalities and instead was a casual afternoon with loved ones and great food. The guests all seemed to enjoy themselves – especially all the kiddos who had a blast running around together. The younger ones stayed inside at Quailcrest Farm while the older kids were outside playing with the games set up and running in the fields nearby. It was the most perfect Ohio wedding!
Thank you both so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day! I hope that your first anniversary is a wonderful day!
