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!

Matt and Holly’s Grand Plaza Toledo wedding was spectacular! I love the little details that make each wedding unique: my two favorites were their first look and the anniversary cards that they had on each reception table that the guests could write a little note in for the couple to open on their next anniversary.  What a fun way to reminisce your wedding day and those that celebrated with you!  So happy to have been a part of your day as your Toledo wedding photographer, Matt and Holly!

Ooooo!  Don’t you just love her shoes and pearls?  How cute!

Jeremy, my second photographer and fabulous husband, captured this beautiful moment as they exited the Ashley Room after being pronounced the new Mr. and Mrs. Zdybek!
