When Mike and Brianne were looking for the perfect wedding venue for their Toledo wedding, they fell in love with the Grand Plaza Hotel.  They could have their ceremony outdoors by the reflecting pond without their guests feeling like they were ‘downtown’, and some of the hotel’s decor matched their wedding colors!  We loved their red and Malibu blue color scheme, which looked amazing for their wedding photography!Toledo wedding photographyThe Grand Plaza and weather was perfect for their wedding day.grand plaza hotel downtown toledo weddingToledo wedding photographyToledo wedding photographyToledo wedding photographyToledo wedding photography

Brianne, of course, was a stunning bride!  With all the crazy planning that goes into a wedding, we asked her if there were any tips for future brides.  She says not to order programs according to your guest count, unless it’s a fan for outdoor ceremonies.  Most guests come as a couple and they ended up with 80+ extra programs!  Great tip!

Both Mike and Brianne said that one of their most treasured moments of the wedding day was having the live music and dancing.  Their band, “The Websters” from Cincinnati, were amazing and kept their dance floor full all night long!

Josh and Nahdia: Engaged! | Toledo Engagement Photographers

Josh and Nahdia: Engaged!

Toledo Engagement Photographers

Wow!  This session for Josh and Nahdia was so fun and at a unique location that wouldn’t have happened if it hadn’t been such a rainy day.  But, go figure, after we started the session indoors, it quit raining.  Toledo engagement photographers really had some challenges with this year’s constantly changing weather!

Josh and Nahdia’s love story is one woven in time.  They’ve known each other for over 11 years, but they hit if off while working together at Toledo’s Gladieux Lumbar Yard on Route 2 in Oregon.  Nahdia was a junior in high school, and Josh worked out in the lumbar yard.  Their first date was to a Mudhen’s game, which is so perfect!  Being avid baseball fans, they made a goal while dating to visit all 30 US stadiums.  So far, they’ve been to Atlanta, Pittsburg, Boston, Chicago, and Detroit.  Josh knew when they were planning their trip to Boston that he would ask the love of his life to marry him.  And there, right in front of Fenway Stadium in Boston, he got down on one knee.  And she said, ‘yes!’, of course!

David and Erica: Engaged! Toledo Barn Portraits

David and Erica: Engaged!

Toledo Barn Portraits

David and Erica are engaged!  And they are getting married at the end of this year… as in the last day this year!  New Year’s Eve!  For their engagement portraits, they found a barn owned by a friend to use for their location since it had begun raining.  Their Toledo barn portraits turned out so fun and amazing! What a fun session with them and David’s daughter, Ava.

David and Erica met on match.com.  Erica had only been a member for a week and David had forgotten about his account.  When his account sent him a notice that it automatically renewed, he logged in and saw Erica’s profile.  They met for lunch and then went bowling the next evening.  It was meant to be!

How did he propose?  It’s such a cute story!  It was winter and David insisted that Erica get bundled up after a long day at work and go with him to see “The Lights” at the Toledo Zoo.  She agreed and they headed out.  David knew that Erica had said in the past that if he proposed, she didn’t want a lot of people around, so when David got to the zoo, he had trouble finding a quiet spot amongst the crowds.  At one point, he thought he found a nice little corner by a big tree, but as they walked around the walk, another guy was down on his knee proposing.  Talk about pressure as if David wasn’t already a little nervous!  He did eventually find the perfect place and talked Erica into taking a ‘selfie’ with him, and then he dropped down on a knee and asked her to be his wife.  Of course, she said, “Yes”!
