Steve + Kerri 07.05.08

Steve and Kerri were such a fun couple to work with.  I met Kerri back at the beginning of the year and have been looking forward to this wedding ever since.  Kerri has to be one of the most relaxed brides I have ever seen!  She got dressed on her own and then was helping others finish up getting dressed and fixing them up to look perfect!  The ceremony was an intimate gathering in front of Shady Hollow Country Club in Jackson Township and then the reception was attended by all at the same location.  They ran into the reception to the OSU fight song and the laughs never stopped (even though there was some tears from the amazing toasts from Kerri’s brother and Steve’s good friend).

Thank you both for having me be a part of your amazing day!

John + Stacey 06.28.08

I met John and Stacey last year at Anna + Adam’s wedding in September.  John is Anna’s brother and stood as her Man of Honor at her wedding.  I had such a wonderful experience with Anna and her family so I was super excited when I got the call from Stacey’s Mom inquiring about shooting their wedding this summer.  I was even MORE over the moon when I found out that the wedding was to take place at one of my favorite spots locally, Stan Hywet.  My father worked there for a spell when I was really young and then we had a field trip there in the 6th Grade and I was hooked on that place!  It has such a charm, it’s really beautiful!  I also had the added bonus of having a photographer friend, Kelly Niemann, fly in from Texas to second shoot for me.

The tears did not stop flowing once Stacey started walking towards John behind Stan Hywet.  They were SO in love and so perfect for each other it was plain to see even to me, a virtual stranger.  The service was performed by Stacey’s father and was beautiful and so personalized there was not a dry eye in the house.  Each of their families stood with them (Stacey’s parents and her sister Amy and her husband and then John’s parents and his sister Anna took her turn as Woman of Honor with her husband and new son Aidan with her).  The immediate family read readings from books and poems instead of the standard verses.  Just simply beautiful!  Afterwards we did some formal pictures with family and friends and then I swept John and Stacey away into the gardens for some pictures of just the two of them.

The reception was another tearful event at first with the toasts almost trumping the ceremony for tearjerking moments and then the fun started with the dancing.  It was such a relaxed day with so much love for the couple and each other – SUCH a beautiful day to compliment such a beautiful day!

It was also so wonderful to meet up with a past bride and groom and see how they are still completely in love with their new sweet bundle in their lives.  Their son is adorable and such a good baby for only 2 months!!!  I can’t wait to shoot his wedding 😉

Thank you SO much John and Stacey for allowing me to be a part of your special day!!!
