Brookside Farms Wedding: Katie+Dan

Katie and Dan are just a blast to be around. These two seem to be up for anything, so much that they willingly jumped into a lake for their engagement session. Their wedding day was no different. I arrived to Brookside Farms in pouring down rain, only to find one very happy bride who was not letting the rain affect the mood of the day at all. She told me she had umbrellas and was ready to get pictures rain or shine. Katie and Dan’s wedding gave me an idea of who they were as individuals and as a couple as everyone smiled and laughed from beginning to end. I saw happiness and I too had a smile on my face all day. From meaningful, yet hilarious wedding vows, a dancing processional, to smashing cake into the best man and master of honor’s face during cake cutting, they were true to themselves and what makes them special. This wedding was a true celebration from beginning to end; and wouldn’t you know the rain stopped just in time to enjoy a beautiful sunset. Congratulations, Katie and Dan, it was such a joy to capture your day!

St. John Vianney Wedding (Mentor, Ohio): Michael+Kimberly

From getting her hair done, to the father-daughter dance, this bride was full of emotions and taking in every moment of her wedding day.  Every detail was in place and the day was just stunning.  It was really fun to watch Mike and Kim’s wedding day jitters melt away after they said, “I do.”  They definitely make each other happy and as we moved onto pictures and then into the reception, they were able to completely relax and enjoy their celebration with family friends.  Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Shannon!
