Chris & Silvia | Wedding Photography in Toledo

Chris and Silvia are so adorable together! They first met while Silvia worked for the Toledo Mayor’s office.  Chris also worked for the city and often had to stop by her office for work.  Silvia’s coworkers knew they’d be perfect for each other, so they helped set them up on their first date at a Toledo Mudhen’s game!  What amazing friends!  The date went great and now they are married and beginning their happily ever after!

Their wedding day was absolutely perfect!  Rain threatened to flood them out, but the weather held off and it turned into a beautiful day.  Chris and Silvia both got ready at their church, John the Baptist Catholic Church of Toledo.  Silvia was so excited to see Chris for the first time as she walked down the aisle with her mom!

One of our favorite portraits to create for couples getting married in beautiful cathedrals is an empty sanctuary wide-angle portrait.  Love this one of Chris and Silvia!  The stained glass of John the Baptist Catholic Church is stunning!

We asked Silvia if she had any wedding tips for future brides that she wished she had known.  She highly recommends hiring a day-of wedding coordinator!  Even if your venue comes with a coordinator, if you aren’t having the reception at the same location as your ceremony, it’s so great to have someone organize moving flower arrangements and taking care of everything.  We couldn’t agree more!  Couples and their families should only have to focus on the fun and the moments, big and small, of their wedding day.

Their gorgeous reception was held at the Premier on Heatherdowns Blvd.

 In Silvia’s home country, Columbia, it is tradition to have a La Hora Loca, or Crazy Hour, during the reception with fun masks and colorful party accessories. It was so much fun!wedding photography in Toledo

Congratulations again to you both, Chris and Silvia!  We couldn’t be happier for you!  Jon loved being a part, capturing every moment of your wedding day for you to treasure forever!

Justin and Haley met at a birthday party through a mutual friend when they were just 15 years old.  They started dating and the rest is history!  The irony is they would have met even younger because they attended the same middle school, but fate had them wait until their freshman year of high school.  What a magical story of young love!  And then on July 7th, surrounded by their family and friends, they vowed their love for each other and forever more! Detroit Wedding Photographer

How did Justin propose?  He took Haley out to a special dinner to the Roast Restaurant in Detroit.  He planned to propose there.  But, when he realized Haley was feeling nervous, he waited until they got home, where he proposed by candlelight.  And she said, ‘yes’!  Their beautiful wedding day was carefully planned by both sides of the family using recommendations and vendors that Justin’s mom and stepdad had worked with before (they own a state-of-the-art photobooth company called Memory Box).  A special thanks to their vendor team for making their day a dream come true!

One of their favorite moments they looked forward to most (besides being married!), was dancing with their family and friends.  For most of their families, it was the first time in 10 years that both sides got to meet each other.

Any advice to give to newly engaged couples?  They said they wished that they had taken Justin’s uncle’s advice.  To take a moment to stand back and soak everything in.  They day flies by too fast!  They also decided the day before the wedding to do a First Look and highly recommend it to couples who want a little less stress on the wedding day.  You get to create a moment together and see each other before the ceremony. Plus all the portraits can be taken beforehand, too, to save time between the ceremony and reception.

A huge thunderstorm (with tornado warnings!) blew through just moments before their sunset portrait!  What a dynamic sky it created for them!Detroit Wedding Photographer Detroit Wedding Photographer Detroit Wedding Photographer
