Celia and Mike’s wedding day was a day of family. We started the day at Celia’s parents’ picturesque home in rural Thompson, Ohio. When we arrived bridesmaids and family were enjoying the weather on the front porch while having their hair and make up done. We were delighted to spend the day alongside our friends Holly and Matt Michelson from 5:5 Photography too. Holly and her family are longtime friends of Celia’s family and Holly’s sister was Celia’s maid of honor.
The ceremony at Lifehouse church was not a routine occasion, but was instead full of depth and meaning. The pastor told me before the ceremony that he really wanted “the Holy Spirit to fall on Celia and Mike and truly make the two into one.” After the wedding we went back to the house for photos and video and then we headed to the reception. One of our favorite moments was the emotional and heartfelt toast given by the maid of honor. Dancing soon started and, wow, can Celia’s parents cut a rug!
Beth and I were so delighted when we got a chance to get some video during sunset and, man, was it gorgeous! With the waning light just over the treetops beyond the field it made for some stunning moments with the Celia and Mike.
Many blessings to you and on your marriage, Celia and Mike!
