Jason & Lauren | Wedding Photography in Toledo

Mr. & Mrs. MacLean | Wedding Photography in Toledo

How incredibly special to continue the family tradition of the wedding ceremony at St. Joseph’s Church in Fremont Ohio.  Lauren’s parents and grandparents were married there!  So, it was the ideal location for Jason and Lauren’s special day.  And it was gorgeous!  Beautiful stained glass windows masking the cloudy sunlight to a beautiful yellow hue.  We’re so glad we were trusted to capture their wedding day when they were looking for wedding photography in Toledo Ohio.

We have a LOT of favorite shots, but this image of Jason when he sees his bride for the first time is at the top!

Jason and Lauren chose two locations for their portraits after the ceremony. The first was at the beautiful Rutherford B Hayes Park in Fremont, Ohio.  Don’t you just love their wedding colors against the stone pillars in the background?fremont-ohio-wedding-photographer-002 wedding photography in Toledo wedding photography in Toledo toledo wedding photography fremont-ohio-wedding-photographer-001

The second location Jason and Lauren wanted wedding portraits at was at the spectacular Schedel Gardens in Elmore, Ohio.  How beautiful of a setting for this equally beautiful couple!  Jason and Lauren were so adorable in front of the camera, too!schedel gardens wedding photographer schedel gardens wedding photographer wedding photography in Toledo schedel gardens wedding photographer Pinnacle Toledo wedding photography in Toledo

It was so fun to be a part of David and Erica’s Firefighter wedding on New Years Eve!  What a party; they thought of every detail and we’re so glad that we were their choice of Toledo wedding photography! It truly was an honor!  And we love how they met- on match.com!  David forgot that he had auto renewal set up for his match.com account, so he logged in when he saw that he was billed again.  And there was beautiful Erica’s profile, who had just joined a few days earlier.  They connected and the rest is history!

David and Erica are an amazing couple: the moment you see them together, you know they were meant for each other!  And it was so obvious on their wedding day as they were getting ready.  The anticipation of seeing each other in only a few short hours was exciting and the time flew by!

With winter hours of limited sunlight, it was already dark outside after their ceremony.  We had planned ahead for some creative portraits, though!  David and his father are part of the downtown Toledo firefighter department, so we were thrilled to shoot at their fire station for them!

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!

{Capturing Love in 2014}

With New Years Eve finally here, it’s been so fun reminiscing back on the year.  2014 has brought us so many blessings, including the opportunity to work with such fabulous couples that trusted us with the biggest day of their lives.  The best part of being a wedding photographer is being involved with each bride and groom from the initial consultation, engagement session, and finally, the wedding day!  We’ve laughed, cried, and rejoiced with so many little moments our couples shared with us.  Tearful ‘First Looks’, fathers seeing their little girl all dressed up, the first kiss as husband and wife… Amazing memories that you’ll now get to cherish and share for generations to come through your portraits.  Thank you to each one who chose us to be your Toledo wedding photographers.  We love you and we wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year!

Kyle and Kyrie: Engaged! | Toledo Wedding Photographer

Kyle and Kyrie: Engaged!

{Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Kyle and Kyrie have such a unique tale of how their love story began.  They were set up for a double date with other people, but when they met up to head out, both of their dates didn’t show.  So, they went on their own date and the rest was history!  All things happen for a reason, and theirs ended up with the best ending!  They have also defied all odds with their long-distance relationship from Georgia and Toledo.  And we can’t wait for them to spend their happily ever after TOGETHER!

With their summer Schedel Gardens wedding right around the corner, they opted for an urban engagement session in downtown Toledo while Kyle was in town for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Definitely a different background than what they’ll have for their wedding day!  One thing with the urban look, you usually can’t tell the season!  Great location choice for your Toledo engagement pictures, you two!  (P.S. And, I’m sure you were both models in another life!  🙂

It was COLD for Kristina and David’s engagement session at Wildwood Park in Toledo, but you’d never guess from their portraits!  Their love for each other is so obvious and adorable; it radiated from them.  We started their session in one of Wildwood’s gorgeous fields, and then wrapped up by the Manor House.  They were so fun to work with, and we are looking forward to their fall wedding at the stellar Heatherdowns Country Club!  David and Kristina, we’re so excited to be your Toledo wedding photographer!

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!

Toledo Wedding Photographer 001-2_mini Toledo Wedding Photographer 002-2_miniRight before we set up the First Look so they could see each other before the ceremony for portraits, Holly requested this beautiful moment to be captured.  Tears were flowing and they reached around the wall to hold hands!
Wedding Photographers in Toledo Oh 2_mini Their outdoor ceremony had to be moved indoors at the very last moment (and I mean, like the last 15 minutes before the ceremony began!) because it was so windy outside.  Big thanks to Jenn Maher and her staff at the Grand Plaza (and the guests who helped!) for making the transition so smooth for Matt and Holly.  Because of the weather, we decided to keep all the portraits indoors, too, which was no set-back since the Plaza has a beautiful lobby!   Here’s their first look, also watched by some of the wedding party and parents!Toledo Wedding Photographer 004_mini Toledo Wedding Photographer 005_mini Toledo Wedding Photographer 002_mini I’m in love with their first picture as a new family!  This location offers such a modern style for their portraits!  Such a beautiful family!Toledo Wedding Photographer 009_mini Wedding Photographers in Toledo Oh 1_mini Toledo Wedding Photographer 015_mini Toledo Wedding Photographer 017_mini
