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

Stephen and Hailey’s Toledo Wedding

Stephen and Hailey are so perfect for each other!  It was love at first sight for Stephen.  He saw a picture of Hailey at his cousin’s house and wanted to meet her.  And their love for each other is so obvious, it just makes our job of capturing it all that easier!  As Toledo wedding photographers, we love it when a bit of history is involved with couples choosing their wedding venues.  Stephen and Hailey choose St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Toledo for their ceremony.  They chose it because not only was Hailey baptized there, but her parents AND her grandparents were both married there!  It was a beautiful ceremony!

When asked what moment they will cherish the most, Stephen said when the doors opened for Hailey to walk down the aisle!  Hailey said, “Saying our vows.”Toledo Wedding PhotographersToledo Wedding Photographers Toledo Wedding Photographers Toledo Wedding Photographers Toledo Wedding Photographers

Isn’t the cake topper cute?  The old ball-and-chain!  Ha!

I wish we had taken a surrounding photo of the area to compare this shot to!  This little hill was next to the hall completely surrounded by 2 story homes.  We had to lay completely flat on the ground at the bottom of the hill to get a clean sky for this sunset!  SO worth it!  🙂

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!

For their reception, David and Erica planned the entire reception to bring in the new year with their friends and family.  They even had a live stream of the ball drop in New York City going!

Mindy’s Bridal Session | Wedding Photographers in Toledo Ohio

Mindy’s Bridal Session | Wedding Photographers in Toledo Ohio

Mindy is the type of girl that everyone wants to be around; beautiful, caring, and always smiling.  And now she is spending the rest of her life with Jimmy by her side!  Mindy’s bridal session was over a month ago and featured at the beautiful Heather Downs Country Club (one of our favorite venues as wedding photographers in Toledo, Ohio) where they later held their reception.  (They were married a little over a week ago, so we can share these now!) Wedding day timelines rarely, if ever, allow for a full hour with just the bride, so a Bridal Session is perfect for those brides who wish to get some creative portraits in their gown before the big day.  Plus, Mindy got to trial out her makeup and hair style!  Isn’t she stunning?  The details in her gown and jewelry were perfect!

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!

Toledo Wedding Photographers | Capturing Love in 2014

Toledo Wedding Photographers

{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!

Samuel and Kattie had one of the most amazing wedding ceremonies for their fall wedding!  Samuel sang to his bride as she walked down the aisle to him on the arm of her son.  And wow!  What a voice!  Samuel could SING!  Their deep love and respect for each other is so obvious to those around them, and radiated through their family and friends that witnessed their vows.  Congratulations to the happy couple!  And we really loved being a part of your Toledo wedding at the Premier!

Mark + Robyn = Engaged! {a Sidecut Park Session, Toledo Wedding Photographer}

Mark and Robyn are the perfect match!  It’s been sooo much fun getting to know them both over the past few months!  When it came time to schedule their engagement session, Robyn knew exactly were she wanted it:  Sidecut Metro Park in Maumee, Ohio.  And what a great choice!  We had to reschedule their session twice due to rain… third time is a charm, right?  The day was as charming as these two were together!  Congratulations to you both and I can’t wait until your wedding day at Nazareth Hall!

Shayne + Jessica = Engaged!

These two have got to be one of the cutest couples ever!   And their session also happened to be on one of the last perfect days before the wintery white season.   We photographed their engagement session here in Toledo at the Botanical Gardens…(one of my fav locations for fall) and captured their love for each other on a background from a palette of yellow and orange.  Simply beautiful!  I can’t wait until next fall…when their photographs will be of them on their wedding day!!!!

Mr. & Mrs. Stykemain

I first met Cameron and Jen (great name, btw!) at a Panera Bread here in town.  We sat down and discussed their wedding details.  Since I had never shot at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Defiance, Ohio, I looked up their venue and immediately fell in love with it!  Cameron and Jen were so sweet together and completely relaxed about their wedding planning. I knew right away their wedding day was going to be beautiful!  And it was!  Jen’s dress was Ah-MAZING, and she looked so breath-taking as the church doors opened with her father leading her down the aisle on his arm.

With no prominent park in town, we actually took the non-formals at the local Defiance Library.  The location was perfect, with it’s red stone walls, carefully manicured lawn, and all overlooking the Maumee River.

Their reception was just as lovely, with beautiful decorative details in black and pink.  The new Mr. and Mrs. Stykemain were introduced and then immediately swung into their first dance as a couple…(always one of my favorite parts of the evening!).  The DJ kept the evening full of entertainment with table games and laughter for everyone.  Congratulations to them both!!!
