Aaron + Andrea | St Joseph Wedding Photographer

Aaron + Andrea | St Joseph Wedding Photographer

Aaron and Andrea’s wedding day was absolutely perfect, even though it rained most of the day!  But, how romantic is that?  They say rain on the wedding day brings good fortune for the couple, anyway.  They chose St Joseph’s Church in Maumee, Ohio for their ceremony and St. Joseph’s in Sylvania, Ohio for their reception.  Both venues are stunning, but the deciding factor in choosing the church were the memories Andrea had there in Maumee going to school at St. Joseph.  And they loved how pretty the reception room was with a window over looking the beautiful scenery.  In fact, some of the wedding party were cracking us up from the window while we were outside later in the evening creating Aaron and Andrea’s romantic sunset portraits in the field below the window.  It was a fun wedding party!

The moment they both looked forward to the most on their wedding day was seeing each other for the first time and celebrating with their friends and family at the reception.  Even through all the normal stress of planning to make their day perfect, Aaron and Andrea loved that they learned to not sweat the small stuff and to just have fun!  They also said having great vendors to work with along the way was a must-have.  🙂

Josh and Alyssa are the cutest couple together!  They definitely made my job easy by being so obviously in love with each other and with choosing such a great location for their engagement session.  Wildwood Park and the Manor House!  It was a dream combo for this Toledo engagement photographer!

We just swoon over love stories!  Alyssa shares show their love story began:

“We met thanks to Josh’s friend Richie. In May of 2014, Josh had just arrived home from the Naval Academy on a month of summer leave. Richie invited Josh over to his house in Adrian for a bonfire.  Josh didn’t want to go at first, but was eventually persuaded into showing up. I had just graduated from Siena Heights University and was still living in Adrian at the time and was also friends with Richie. I, too, showed up at the bonfire at Richie’s house. Josh and I were introduced and spent time talking around the fire. About a week later, we exchanged numbers, talked, and hung out the rest of the time Josh was home on leave. When he had to report back to the Academy, we still kept in touch through text and video chats. In July of 2014, we decided to make the relationship official.”

And how did he propose?  Josh has been stationed in Mayport, Florida.  He took a leave during March to visit Alyssa, which was right between his and her birthdays.  Alyssa loves soccer, so he planned a weekend getaway trip to Chicago to watch the Columbus Crew play the Chicago Fire.  Before heading out of town for their weekend, Josh got down on one knee and asked Alyssa to be his forever.  And of course, she said, “yes!”  And now they are planning a beautiful winter wedding at Nazareth Hall in Grand Rapids, Ohio. Engagement photographer in Toledo Engagement photographer in Toledo Engagement photographer in Toledo Engagement photographer in Toledo Toledo engagement photographer engagement-photographers-in-toledo-009_mini

The moment Alyssa and Josh are looking forward to the most on their wedding day?  Their first dance as husband and wife and having a great time on the dance floor with their friends and family!  We cannot wait to be a part of their day!
