{Jaime and Kyle} Toledo Loves You

January 26th, 2017

Let’s start with how incredible this couple is. Their love story started at Whitmer High School and as many love stories go, there was some time apart. A break. And I gather that was when they realized, it’s not who you can live with, but it’s who you can’t live without.  Again, this COUPLE….they are truly […]

Let’s start with how incredible this couple is. Their love story started at Whitmer High School and as many love stories go, there was some time apart. A break. And I gather that was when they realized, it’s not who you can live with, but it’s who you can’t live without.  Again, this COUPLE….they are truly best friends, knowing each other so well, that I think they know exactly what the other is thinking.  These two feel things all the way, there is no half way, it’s all or nothing. For example, when I arrived to start getting some detail shots of the dress and things, Jaime came up to me as she was ‘taking a break’ from hair and makeup because she was feeling so emotional. She said, it was like every time she looked at anyone she just loved them so much and all the memories with that specific person were flooding her heart. I paraphrased that.

All. Day. Long.

Kyle was getting ready at the Wingate Hotel, up the street from Lourdes and after making a few jokes about how I should hire him to be an assistant, he showed me the shoes I was to take back to Jaime. They held a note on the bottom of them, that Jaime said she couldn’t read till after the wedding ( for fear of losing those emotions!) And those beautiful emotions…those emotions that JEM loves to capture were heightened during the ceremony. Kyle seeing Jaime walk down the aisle to ‘I’ve loved you for a thousand years’ was a beautiful sight to see. Jaime’s cousin married the two of them at Botanical Gardens under the gazebo and the rest of this mid October day went incredibly smoothly.  One little surprise that Jaime’s mom threw in was knowing how much her daughter and son-in-law loved BGSU, she hired the mascots to make an appearance. There are so MANY more little things from this day that I loved…an Uncle Scott that was pretty great 😉 and the owner of a small bar in town, The Tribe, surprised them with a bar ‘makeover’ decorated for their wedding, and all the speeches, and Photo Booth fun and grandmas and grandpas dancing and the side trip to Whitmer, so that we could photograph those two at the coordinates of where it all started.

Here’s to your happily ever after…you deserve it all.

{Denise and Ben} Maumee Bay Wedding

September 14th, 2016

The forecast called for rain on this wedding day.  I told myself I wasn’t going to believe it until I saw it with my own eyes.  I said, “surely it won’t rain ALL day”… welp, it rained ALL day for sure.  BUT there were just a few breaks where we could go outside… which I […]

The forecast called for rain on this wedding day.  I told myself I wasn’t going to believe it until I saw it with my own eyes.  I said, “surely it won’t rain ALL day”… welp, it rained ALL day for sure.  BUT there were just a few breaks where we could go outside… which I was SO thankful for!  There might have been loud thunder rolling above our heads but we could be outside for a few.  We waited and watch the rain and hoped for the planned outside wedding, but it had to be moved inside.  I think it makes the few images we got outside even more beautiful!  When it comes down to it, the weather really doesn’t matter, because everyone was still crying their eyes out with all the lovely sentiments, the feeling of love in that room and the sweet personalized vows.  Denise and Ben – from your amazing engagements to your sweet and lovely wedding day, I adored being a part of it!  Love to you both!

After photographing Emily and Gage’s engagement portraits, I just KNEW their wedding would be spectacular… and they didn’t disappoint.  The wedding at Epworth Church, the reception at Inverness, her lace dress, the nicest and happiest groom, really fun bridal party and on and on.   The bride and groom spoiled each other before the ceremony with gifts and prayed together holding hands…  They put so much thought into the details and it made for the most perfect wedding day!  Cheers and best to the happy couple!

This was one of those weddings… one of those weddings out of the ordinary, a chance taken with weather, the use of a family home that is more like a park than a residence… a wedding more intimate with a setting in nature.  The bride knew she didn’t want her wedding anywhere else except her sister’s home.  With a chance of rain, that came in the morning, cleared to one of those beautiful spring days followed by the golden light so loved by my camera.  I loved it all, the Persian ceremony, the relaxed yet gorgeous grounds of the home, the close family feelings, campfire, live band and on and on.  It was one of those beautiful unforgettable weddings that I was so lucky to be a party of.  Love to you… the new Barefoot couple. 🙂
