Rachel & Jayce // The Oak at Millsite Farm

Rachel and Jayce tied the knot last year in an intimate ceremony at Red River Gorge.  This year it was time to get friends and the whole family together at the Oak at Millsite Farm to party!  In rural Sandusky, Ohio, Rachel made her way down the ‘aisle’ by being driven by her grandparents in a 1960’s Checker Aerobus right up to the front of the ceremony, held under a 400 year old oak tree.  Later, the party opened up in the rustic and elegant 1880 barn. Once the dance floor opened, there was no stopping, and Rachel and Jayce were in the thick of it for most of the time!  Many blessings on your doubly-confirmed marriage, Rachel and Jayce!

Lauren & Daniel // Wilderness Event Center

“We do redo!”  Lauren and Dan didn’t let 2020 stop them from pledging their lives to one another with a small family wedding.  This June, they excitedly brought family and friends together for a “We do redo!”  We enjoyed catching Lauren and her sweet bridesmaids getting ready at her parent’s home and then headed to the outdoor ceremony.   It was a hot day, but considering that the forecast originally called for rain, we were grateful!  Accompanied by great laughter it was announced, “By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you…still married!”  One of the sweetest moments at the reception in the rustic barn event center came from a letter from Lauren’s grandpa that he composed before his passing.  The rest of the night was filled with grand fun (even a conga line!) and sweetness as Lauren and Dan completed the Redo of their We Do.

Lauren & Dan’s Teaser!

“We do redo.”

These were the words on Lauren and Dan’s save-the-dates to invite family and friends to witness them say “We do” again since they could only do a small family wedding last year.  It seems a good message for all marriages, though.  We must choose to commit again each day to say “We do” to working through life, with its joys and troubles, together.  We can all use a “We do redo.”  Enjoy this highlight of Lauren & Dan’s sweet day.

Megan & Billy’s Teaser!

Wait ‘til you see this dance!

“To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.” – Jane Austen

Megan and Billy performed one of the most stunning couple dances we can remember!  Like their dance, the two of them have learned to bring their two lives together and are making something beautiful.  Enjoy this small taste of their glorious wedding day.

A special thank you to Renee Lamaire Photography for the lovely thumbnail portrait.

Karli & Cameron // Mapleside Farms

Karli and Cameron are such a delightful couple. Karli’s sweet gusto and Cameron’s kindhearted smile go hand-in-hand and it was a joy to capture their day on film. The fun was palpable as we came to Karli’s family’s home in the morning with laughter and joy all around. This sweet atmosphere continued into the church and on to the reception. Our favorite moments were sharing the sunset over the apple orchards at Mapleside, purported to be the best place to view the sunset in the Cleveland area. And it did not disappoint. We had so much fun capturing Karli and Cameron with the brilliant red and orange sun descending behind them. Despite the cool air, the warmth of their family and friends was aglow all day and through the evening reception. Many blessings on you both, Karli and Cameron, and on your marriage!

Abby & Nate // George Clifton Barn

It could not have been a more lovely day in early August for Nate and Abby’s wedding.  The day started out at the Beer family home where Abby and her two sisters helped Abby do her makeup.  When Abby’s dad had his first look at Abby in her gown he melted and the tears fell.  Then we were off to St. Joseph’s for the beautiful ceremony.  After time for photos and video on the coast of Lake Erie we ended the evening at the Clifton Barn.  Our favorite memory of the night was the hilarious “shoe game,” where the bride and groom sat back to back answering questions (by raising a shoe!) to see how much they knew about the other.  Many blessings to you both, Abby and Nate, on your marriage!

Jon & Sarah // Chardon

“A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Sarah and Jon’s wedding day was, honestly, an inspiration. The two of them and their family and friends gathered together to make their wedding happen at the Wyatt home despite having had to change all their original plans. There were such heartfelt, meaningful words and honor given to each other, their family, and God, and there was also wholehearted joy and unabashed fun. On top of all of this the location was stunning. The setting sun and a visit to a nearby farm were far and above our expectations. This was also our first time partnering with Elliot Spaudie of Birds That Fly drone service https://www.btfuav.com and we love his work! Many blessings to you both, Jon & Sarah!
