Elyria Country Club Wedding of Andrea and Josh
Andrea and Josh’s wedding day was gorgeous; the weather, the Elyria Country Club, and most importantly-the couple, all were gorgeous. Everything from getting ready to the reception all happened in one place so we didn’t need to travel around. It gave a very relaxed, fun feel to the entire day and left plenty of time to “play” with various camera angles and settings. We also had the fun of working with some of our favorite folks: Stephanie and John from Imagine It Photography and wedding coordinator Rose Rau from Ring Around Rosie Events.
Our favorite part of the day, though, was their first look. We all headed out with Josh on golf carts to find a beautiful spot overlooking a pond. A short while later, Andrea arrived and we had the fun of capturing Josh’s first glimpse of his bride in her splendid dress.
It was really unique to have some of Andrea’s heritage involved in the wedding including a Mexican lasso draped around the bride and groom and a tradition where Josh placed symbolic coins in Andrea’s hands. It was also fun to have Pastor David Buegler, an old friend and colleague, conduct the ceremony. He was even able to keep the audience in good spirits after an unexpected falling flower vase crashed in the front row!
The rest of the day included photos, video, and the reception. One humorous occasion included the guests goading Josh into crawling over to Andrea before getting her garter! All in all, though, the enjoyment the two had in each other was beautiful and palpable to all those around. It was an honor to capture and enjoy their day.
