Nazareth Hall Wedding Photographer

Josh and Alyssa’s winter wedding day was perfect and 60+ degrees!  The sunshine was like a special kiss from heaven in the middle of February.  With them both living in Miami, the weather must have followed them to Toledo for their big day.  They chose the beautiful Nazareth Hall venue in Grand Rapids Ohio for their ceremony and reception.  And as their Nazareth Hall wedding photographer, we were so thrilled to capture their beautiful wedding!

And we love a good love story!  Alyssa shared how they met during their engagement session with us:

“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’ll spend the rest of their lives together!

One of the unique parts of their wedding, was the “Arch of the Swords” ceremony for their reception entrance.  The groom has to kiss the bride to pass and then as they walk through, an officer hits the bride on the backside with the flat edge of the sword for good luck and to welcome her into the naval family.Nazareth Hall Wedding PhotographerNazareth Hall Wedding Photographer Nazareth Hall Wedding Photographer Nazareth Hall Wedding Photographer Nazareth Hall Wedding Photographer

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!

Mindy and Jimmy were married on a beautiful Saturday at Wildwood Metropark by the Manor House in Toledo, with their reception following at the grand Heather Downs Country Club.  Their wedding was stunning!  As their Toledo wedding photographer, we had discussed doing the hidden “first look” of holding hands before the ceremony.  The Manor House was the perfect backdrop since their wedding site was just around the corner at the Gazebo!

David and Erica: Engaged! Toledo Barn Portraits

David and Erica: Engaged!

Toledo Barn Portraits

David and Erica are engaged!  And they are getting married at the end of this year… as in the last day this year!  New Year’s Eve!  For their engagement portraits, they found a barn owned by a friend to use for their location since it had begun raining.  Their Toledo barn portraits turned out so fun and amazing! What a fun session with them and David’s daughter, Ava.

David and Erica met on match.com.  Erica had only been a member for a week and David had forgotten about his account.  When his account sent him a notice that it automatically renewed, he logged in and saw Erica’s profile.  They met for lunch and then went bowling the next evening.  It was meant to be!

Toledo Family Photographer FirefighterToledo Family Photographer Firefighter

How did he propose?  It’s such a cute story!  It was winter and David insisted that Erica get bundled up after a long day at work and go with him to see “The Lights” at the Toledo Zoo.  She agreed and they headed out.  David knew that Erica had said in the past that if he proposed, she didn’t want a lot of people around, so when David got to the zoo, he had trouble finding a quiet spot amongst the crowds.  At one point, he thought he found a nice little corner by a big tree, but as they walked around the walk, another guy was down on his knee proposing.  Talk about pressure as if David wasn’t already a little nervous!  He did eventually find the perfect place and talked Erica into taking a ‘selfie’ with him, and then he dropped down on a knee and asked her to be his wife.  Of course, she said, “Yes”!

Michael and Clara’s Premier Catering Toledo wedding was full of love, tears of joy, and exquisite beauty.  Clara’s family traveled across the Pacific Ocean from Indonesia for their wedding day, and it was so much fun to learn about some of their cultural traditions for wishing a couple “good fortune”.  Clara’s suite, which was soon to be the honeymoon suite, was decorated with paper symbols for good luck.

Scott and Katie’s Toledo wedding was a dream from start to finish!  The weather reported 80% chance of rain, but it held off for their special day.  Spotty weather in this area is something that Toledo wedding photographers have learned to work with, but we were so happy it turned out nice!  They were married in the church that Katie grew up in, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Temperance, Michigan.  The tall windows in the sanctuary let in soft beautiful light for their ceremony… it was so perfect that they kept the sanctuary lights off!
