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.

My second photographer Lisa started her day with the guys at Firestone Country Club.
I started my day with the ladies at Taylor’s parents house.
They had a pretty awesome setup going downstairs with a hair station setup with Koi Salon and another for makeup with Love Beautiful Skin. There was also lots of food and drinks!
I absolutely adored Taylor’s stunning Pronovias gown!
Their invitation suite from Paper Twigs was beautiful!
Before getting dressed the ladies toasted to the lovely bride with mimosa’s.
Taylor’s Mom and Sister helped her get dressed.
This dress! SO beautiful!
Taylor opted to do a first look with her bridesmaids and needless to say they were all a bit overcome with how stunning Taylor looked.
How gorgeous are these shoes?? I loved the beaded ankle strap and small heel!
A quick photo with all the ladies before we all headed off for the wedding!
The guys beat us to the church and Lisa was able to capture a few photos of all the final prep before the ceremony.
The guys looked amazing in their suits!
These flower girls were SO adorable!
Anthony’s first look of Taylor!

It was a beautiful ceremony with quite a few smiles throughout!
The new Mr. and Mrs!
Bubble exits are always amazing and theirs was definitely fantastic!
After the family photos Taylor and her Flower Girl walked towards the door and it was too perfect of a photo opp to miss!
We headed over to Firestone Country Club for their photos out on the course before their reception began.
How cute are these two together?
I adored these pink Hayley Paige Occasions bridesmaid dresses! Such a perfect pink!
How beautiful is this veil??
This was such a fun bridal party!
I adored the look of these bridesmaid dresses and their bouquets.
The back of these gowns had to be shown, aren’t they beautiful?
These two looked pretty great too, check out those gorgeous flowers too!!!
While I love posed photos the ones I love when I can get them moving!
A few more sweet moments before heading into the party!
How beautiful is this wood welcome sign?
The reception room looked stunning!!
To kick off their reception they had their bridal party and family start it off before the guests were ushered in to join the party when the doors opened.
How adorable are their grandparents!
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!
Taylor’s grandparents during the anniversary dance. How cute are they??
They cut the gorgeous West Side Bakery cake perfectly!
The rest of the night was fantastic! Becca Kaufman Orchestra was amazing and the dance floor was completely packed all night long!
I couldn’t resist using some of the amazing flowers with their rings!
