Mr and Mrs Sommer
Mon Ami Wedding
Eric and Cortny’s Mon Ami wedding was an absolute dream! Their family and friends enjoyed the quiet hillside setting of the beautiful Mon Ami Winery in Port Clinton. Both the ceremony and reception were there, so guests didn’t have to worry about travelling between locations. The winery, built in the late 1800s, is a popular dinner restaurant and offers a unique ceremony venue in the underground cellar.
Eric and Cortny’s love story begins with a kiss of serendipity. They met over 7 years ago on a bus trip to an Ohio State game, which neither had planned to go on. It was meant to be, because they hit it off right away. By the end of the trip were sitting next to each other. They had so much fun together (Plus, Ohio State won that night!) that they were soon off to their first date a few days later. Eric picked her up at her parents’ house. The moment her parents saw them together, they knew their daughter and her date were smitten with each other!
And, their butterfly release with monarch butterflies was so fun!
We took advantage of the night sky for some gorgeous evening portraits right after dinner. It was so fun exploring Mon Ami with them!
When we plan weddings with our couples, they always seem to fly by so fast! We worked with Eric, Cortny, and her mom for a little under a year, planning the timeline details, their airplane engagement shoot, and bridal session. And then suddenly, it’s the wedding day and all the tiny details come together so perfectly. Thank you Eric and Cortny for choosing JH Photography to be a part of your Mon Ami wedding! We loved capturing your memories for you to enjoy for the rest of your lives and feel like we gained new friends! Best wishes on your new lives together!
