Married: Carolyn + Matt 10.10.09

? 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!

dancing pole
I wasn’t kidding about the dancing pole. It was a RIOT and everyone had fun with it.

pro football hall of fame wedding pictures
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.

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!

golf course wedding pictures
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!

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 🙂

cake cutting
Their cake was YUMMY!

first dance

bridal party dance
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.

bouquet toss
The bouquet was the looser in this fight over who caught the bouquet first, it was hilarious!

garter
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!

leah stafford - love! laughed the whole way through this post!

Kate - Best wedding ever! Love it! The football pics are so neat, and I LOVE that photo of the first dance (?) with the bridal party circling them. My absolute fave though is the first B+W in the church. Such a wonderful mood captured.

Terry - Awesome post! I love the football photos.

Corey Ann Photography | Blog - […] Carolyn won last year’s Album Giveaway and quickly got the images she wanted to include from her wedding to me.  I couldn’t wait to get this album from my company because I was not only eager to see the cover (the leather I didn’t have a swatch for and I was interested to see it) but all of the images in print.  I still LOVE that they played football during their “picture time” the day of their wedding.

- Corey Ann Photography - […] For this reason I do not suggest visiting here for pictures during the month around the festival. Carolyn and Matt came here for wedding images. Cost: Cost of admission for engagements, free to use outdoor field for weddings, unknown charge […]

Canton Family Portrait with the H Family - Corey Ann Photography - […] A few years ago I photographed Carolyn and Matt’s wedding and it still goes down as one of my FAVORITE weddings – and not only because they sent me home with a bottle of wine!  Ha!  They were just such a fun group and 6 years later I still haven’t had another bridal party play football (they legit played – tackling and all!).  Since the last time I saw them they’ve added two adorable kiddos to the mix and I was able to photograph their new family a few weeks ago.  These kiddos could not be any cuter and I’m looking forward to a few more visits with them this year.
