? After their engagement session I had a feeling this was going to be one of my favorite weddings of the year, I was right! I laughed from the beginning to the end and had SUCH a great time.
? Big thanks to my husband whom was my assistant for this wedding.
? Their first date was at a Browns game so it was only fitting that their wedding incorporated many things from their first date including brown and orange for their wedding colors and hitting up the Pro Football Hall of Fame for pictures. I’d imagine that this theme could have ended up gawdy but it was SO beautiful and perfect. They did a splendid job pulling it all together!
? Note to future couples, a dancing pole on the bus makes for fun times! Who knew?
? The bridal party played football. Tackle football. Be jealous. It was awesome.
? Not too much text because there are a LOT of pictures here, I wanted to include more but I knew I had to restrain myself. Wanna see more? Go to their album on Facebook! If you wanna get the first glimpse of things to come on my blog be a fan of my business on Facebook! I tend to upload there first!

I loved that Matt greeted Carolyn partway down the aisle!
I wasn’t kidding about the dancing pole. It was a RIOT and everyone had fun with it.
Going to the Pro Football Hall of Fame was very important to this couple.
Also important? Playing a game (or three) of football. I wasn’t kidding. They were either, girls vs. boys and the girls threw down just as much as the boys.
Yes, they did a chest bump after a touchdown by the girls.
The groom wasn’t afraid to tackle his new bride.
The bride also was a mean quarterback… and she didn’t break a single nail!
What do you call a bride playing tackle football on her wedding day, in her dress? Fierce.
This tackle by the groom made for a great moment to be captured.
The girls? They kicked butt and took names. Needless to say, they won.
The groom takes a hit by the bride.
After about a half hour of playing, they decided to wind down and take some “touchdown dance” bridal party pics. Here’s the guys version.
This one is the girl’s touchdown dance. They win, again.
They got married on 10-10 so I had to play with them on the 10 yard line!
After another dance party on the bus, we all arrived at the reception location to finish up the pictures on the golf course. The bride and groom wanted a picture with a thank you sign for their cards and I noticed that Carolyn’s hot shoes would match the letters so asked her to make sure she showed them off. You all know how much I love shoes!
They are just so adorable!
They actually got a hole in one!!!!
The leaves had JUST started to pop and it was a beautiful backdrop for love!! 😉
This was an in-between moment that I captured, it was pretty chilly as soon as the sun started to go down and Matt was trying to warm Carolyn up between poses. So sweet 🙂
Their cake was YUMMY!
After a couple minutes into the bridal party dance, the DJ had everyone join hands and spin around the couple. It wasn’t easy to get a clear shot of them so I decided to play with my shutter speed so you could get the feeling of the spinning.
The bouquet was the looser in this fight over who caught the bouquet first, it was hilarious!
To remove the garter, the groom actually danced up to the bride. It is hard to explain but it was awesome, perfect and funny!
Thank you guys SO MUCH for choosing me to be a part of your day!
