Eric & Amanda’s Grand Plaza Hotel Downtown Toledo Wedding {Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Eric & Amanda’s Grand Plaza Hotel Downtown Toledo Wedding

{Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Eric and Amanda’s love story is one of history!  They liked each other in high school, and then parted ways until several years later randomly running into each other at a Frickers restaurant in Toledo.  Sparks must have been flying, because when Amanda left without Eric getting a chance to ask her for her number, he called a mutual friend to get it.  And it’s been love ever since!  And we’re so honored to be a part of their Grand Plaza Hotel wedding day as their Toledo wedding photographer!

So excited to see these two tie the knot just a few days ago at the Grand Plaza Hotel in downtown Toledo.  Amanda’s eye for detail and super organized personality helped so much to bring the planning process to a beautiful reality!  And a big thanks to the Grand Plaza’s team and wedding vendors for all their hard work to make Eric and Amanda’s Toledo wedding day a dream come true!

  Toledo Wedding Photographer Grand Plaza 008_mini Toledo Wedding Photographer Grand Plaza 001_miniI asked the bride and groom to share what their favorite part of their day was.  For Amanda, it was getting married and wearing her wedding gown (her gown from Atlas Bridal was stunning on her!).  Her favorite memory was walking down the aisle and seeing Eric, her groom, waiting for her!  Eric said he really looked forward to seeing Amanda in her gown for the first time and he loved the reception and being surrounded by family and friends.

What an amazing day for Dave and Lindsay!  Their Heatherdowns Country Club wedding was amazing, and so perfect for the two avid golfers!  Their ceremony was held outdoors on the 10th tee with the beautiful course as their backdrop.  It was gorgeous!  The wedding party also had a blast riding golf carts from the club’s entrance to the back of the ceremony site before walking down the aisle.  (The girls drove and the groomsmen held the bouquets!)  It was sure fun being a part of their big day as their Toledo wedding photographer!
