andrea + benwedding
The story goes that the first time Ben took Andrea out to Kelleys Island, where his family had always vacationed, she was not thrilled about the idea of spending a week on a small island in Lake Erie off of Sandusky, Ohio. They are both from the Philadelphia area, so it is no wonder she was less than thrilled. The car ride out there she told Ben they were not going to stay the whole week, there would be nothing to do, etc. You get the picture. Upon arriving on Kelleys Island they saw a wedding take place. Andrea turned to Ben and said: Oh my gosh! I want to get married here!
5 years later, they did just that. Kelleys Island is their place. Its laid back, low key beauty is something they treasure. They were over the moon that 70 of their closest friends and family made the 8 1/2 hour drive out to the Lake Erie Island for their wedding. Their wedding truly encompassed that island life feel. Low key, complimenting the vintage home whose lawn they tied the knot on. Visiting the old winery ruins in the woods and enjoying the (thank goodness!) blue waters we lucked out with that day. Perfect day.
Congrats you two! It was an honor to spend the day visiting your special place and capturing you in your element. :)
