Every year it’s always interesting to see how my year books up. When I started 11 years ago June was the “it” month to get married but over the past few years it shifted from September and now onto October. So what used to be the silly season (May/June/July) has shifted to a new spot (September/October). This means it’s rare I have a weekend off but last year I ended up with a couple weekends off in early September. I ended up booking two smaller weddings on those weeks and it was SUCH a treat to have a bit of a change in pace from the big weddings over the summer.
Candace and Tim got married at the beautiful Steele Mansion in Painesville. I had not been to it before but I’ve already recommended it to a few people looking for an intimate location for a wedding. Their wedding was completely my kind of wedding, and in fact was very similar to my own – minus the beach! They had a lovely ceremony and then a delicious dinner followed by a cake cutting. Nothing too fussy and was all celebrated with their family. It was perfect.
Thank you both for trusting me to capture your beautiful day!
I adored Candace’s gown! I loved the high/low hem and the color.
She came down the stairs for the ceremony and walked into the adjacent room where she met up with Tim.
Tim’s smile when he saw Candace really says it all.
Candace’s son was overcome with emotion – everyone had happy tears in their eyes!
It was a lovely ceremony!
After the ceremony we headed outside for the pictures. Of course we had to start with the mansion itself which is absolutely gorgeous.
It was just before sunset and the golden hour was in full glow. The trees in the side yard were starting to turn and everything just had a beautiful lovely glow.
How cute are they???
Tim’s daughter had this sign made for them and I adored it! I wish I knew who made it because it’s SUCH a perfect wedding gift!
We took a quick spin through the basement of Steele Mansion before heading upstairs for their wedding dinner.
I can’t move forward though before raving about how gorgeous this bouquet is! I loved the colors and the mix of flowers!
They opted out of having a traditional formal reception and instead went for a lovely dinner with their children and family. I loved it – mostly because it’s very similar to my own reception. Low key events are so lovely!
Many of their children said a few impromptu toasts to the new couple and their new family.
I’m going to round it out with this lovely image of Tim cuddling with one of his daughters after dinner! I loved this photo so much!
