Michael & Clara | Premier Catering Toledo Wedding

Michael & Clara

Premier Catering Toledo Wedding

Michael and Clara’s Premier Catering Toledo wedding was full of love, tears of joy, and exquisite beauty.  Clara’s family traveled across the Pacific Ocean from Indonesia for their wedding day, and it was so much fun to learn about some of their cultural traditions for wishing a couple “good fortune”.  Clara’s suite, which was soon to be the honeymoon suite, was decorated with paper symbols for good luck.

Dustin & Casey Engaged!

Vintage Wedding Photographer

We just love this vintage theme-styled session from Dustin and Casey’s engagement shoot!  As their vintage wedding photographer we love new locations and Casey chose her parent’s restored farm house as the perfect spot.  Complete with turn-of-the-century furnishings (and car!), the theme was easy to be creative with!

How did you meet?

“Dustin and I first met at a coffee house called George House in Findlay, Ohio. The coffee house is right across from the University and it was early December so there were lots of students there studying for upcoming exams. I was sitting down drinking my coffee and there was nowhere to sit.  He came up to my table and asked to sit with me. I said ‘yes’ and we could not stop talking.”  A romance starting over a good cup of coffee!

The day before Dustin proposed to me he said he was going to take me out to our favorite  steak house in Columbus called The Top. I was 100% sure he was going to propose so I went out and bought a new dress, shoes, got my hair done the whole 9 yards. I came home the night before and he said I looked nice but he wasn't sure why I was getting so "gussied up." He even went on to say he didn't want me to get my hopes up and that we were just celebrating that he had sold his house. Well I was disappointed needless to say. The 19th of December came around and we headed down to Columbus. It was cold and rainy but we hit the mall and much to my ever growing disappointment did very ordinary things. We went over to the steak house early and stayed in the car not wanting to go in to early. In the car we got into this conversation about engagement and how Christmas was coming up. That relatives were sure to be poking around once again asking where the ring was. I told Dustin that I would not let it bother me this year and I was ok with waiting a little longer if he needed more time to save up for the asscher diamond ring he wanted to buy me.  We went in and I noticed that everyone was really nice to us. I didn't think anything of it since whenever we have gone down they have always been very kind. Then I noticed that Dustin was acting funny. I could hardly get him to talk and it was borderline awkward. I asked him if he was mad at me and he said no that he was just tired. After awhile I got up to use the restroom. When I came back there was a big tray of dessert sitting on our table. When I sat down Dustin jumped up and said I have to do to the bathroom! and ran off I thought "that's strange" I sat waiting for him to come back and was listening to the piano player. The Top was really crowded and he came back to the booth but moved to stand right beside me because I assumed he was letting a waiter by. But next thing I knew he was on one knee with a box. He said "Casey Marie, will you marry me?" He opened the box and it was glowing! I later found out that He and his son had installed the little light in it earlier in the week because The Top was dark and he wanted me to see the solitaire Asscher cut Diamond ring that he had picked out just two days earlier. I said yes and asked the piano player to play and sing "I only have eyes for you" by the Flamingos.
