Canal Fulton Children’s Session

Over the summer I had the joy of meeting back up with sweet Cora and her new sister Everly!  These two girls are so darn cute and it was so much fun getting to document their smiles.  This is the first of three sessions I had with these cuties this last year.

Enjoy these sunny smiles from these cutie pies!

Firestone Country Club Wedding with Taylor and Anthony

Taylor and Anthony’s wedding was such a magical day!  It was a beautiful July day with blue skies and lots of sun.  Very different from their engagement session the fall before.  But that’s why I always love when my couples are able to do their engagement session in a different season from their wedding, then they get lots of various looks from their photos.

If I had to choose a word for the day the word would be smiles.  There were SO MANY SMILES all day long.  While wedding days often run the gamut of emotions the prevailing one on their day was happiness.  So many huge grins and lots of smiles and laughs.  Every time Anthony snuck a look at Taylor he couldn’t help but break out into a massive grin.  Same went for Taylor looking at Anthony.

Thank you both so much for trusting me with your beautiful day!  It was wonderful working with you both.

For a fun glimpse at their reception check out their video from Little Brown Dog Productions here!

While everyone stayed in with the party, Taylor and Anthony snuck out and were announced.  They went straight into their first dance.

Taylor’s Dad welcomed everyone and the toasts were done before dinner.

After dinner instead of Taylor and Anthony each dancing with a parent they embraced a tradition that started with Taylor’s parents.  They each danced with Taylor’s parents, then her parents danced with each other while Anthony’s parents came out and they danced with them.  Then their siblings and so forth.  I really loved this spin on the traditional parent dance!

Inn Walden Wedding with Melissa and Carl

Holy cow, have you been to Inn Walden in Aurora?  I cannot believe this place is in Ohio much less nearby!  I had no idea that Walden even existed and I’m so thankful for Melissa and Carl introducing me to this place because I am DEFINITELY going back.  Inn Walden is a beautiful spa and resort nestled in Aurora and is the most zen place to get married that I’ve ever been to.

Melissa and Carl had a lovely wedding on a glorious summer day.  The skies were blue, the sun was shining and they said I do under an arch in the garden surrounded by flowers.  It was such a different but beautiful ceremony!  It started with everyone blessing water that Melissa and Carl would later drink, then the crystal bowls were played and everyone took their places for the ceremony.  Melissa’s daughters were her flower “girls” and then Melissa and her fantastic gown (IT IS AMAZING) came down the aisle.

They followed up their ceremony with a dinner with their guests at the Inn before leaving in the evening to attend a U2 concert.  These two know how to celebrate!!!!!  I loved that they went to a concert that evening (I had gone to one the day before!).  Such a unique and fun way to kick of a marriage.

Thank you both for trusting me with the images from your wedding day!

Just you wait, the dress gets better!

Inn Walden Wedding in Aurora

We were able to do a quick first look before the ceremony and I loved that Carl thought to bring Melissa a mimosa to sip on while waiting for the ceremony to start.
I’ve mentioned how gorgeous Melissa looked right?  This dress is the heart eye emoji a million times over. Proof that you don’t need a long train to be bridal.

I loved the outdoor ceremony space at Inn Walden for a wedding.  It’s the perfect spot between the trees and wildflowers!

I love when kids are enlisted to help set up!

I’ve never seen crystal bowls at a wedding before and it was such a beautiful addition.  The music is hauntingly beautiful.

There is no age limit to being a flower girl and I loved that Melissa’s daughters were up for the job!

And yes, true to form I adored their pink eyelet dresses as well.  This was a beautifully styled wedding group!

There are these beautiful glass walkways at Walden and they were the perfect spot for photos.
