Winter LaCentre Wedding with Marie and Robert

A few years ago I photographed a magical New Years Eve wedding with Marie’s sister Catherine and I fell in LOVE with their family.  I was so excited when her sister contacted me to photograph her wedding!  Originally it was scheduled for last year near Thanksgiving but life happens and they ended up moving it to the end of the following year on the day before her sister’s anniversary.  I was SO excited to photograph another winter wedding with this family and Ohio brought the weather!

I need to pause in the midst of the weather jabber to gush about Marie’s dress.  When she opened up the garment bag I let out a gasp, it was SO stunning and SO perfect for a snowy day.  The light grey was just so stunning on Marie that even months later I still am in awe at how amazing it was.  Ladies, don’t be afraid of going away from white!

Back to the weather – these two were absolute rockstars and were brave enough to go outside in the snow (which was falling beautifully!) and cold for a few photos en route to their reception.  They had their love to keep them warm though!  These two were all smiles and stars in their eyes all night long, especially when they were near each other.

Many congratulations to you both – thank you so much for allowing me to capture your magical day!

Catherine and Andy now have an adorable son and he was the ring bearer!  His Dad had to join him since he was a bit scared.
