Jaclynn + Justin embraced Maumee Bay’s beachy vibe opting for a laid back, relaxed wedding on he Lake Erie coastline. Their First Look was one of the most touching experiences to photograph. They were both overwhelmed with the joy of the day. Jaclynn could not have looked lovelier. The skies were blue and the lake certainly gave us her best that day… could have fooled us that it wasn’t a Caribbean destination. Such a delightful day. Enjoy their photos!
It ended up being a perfect August day… It wasn’t supposed to be. It was supposed to rain on their Maumee Bay outdoor wedding. I flipped through the hourly & Doppler up until we arrived at their venue just a bit east from Toledo Ohio. Denise + PJ are warm & generous, the type of people who make you feel like you’ve been friends for years when you first meet. I was over the moon when the blue skies & fluffy white clouds made themselves comfortable over Lake Erie. They deserved to have their epic wedding under a perfect summer sky.
I recently discovered that the city, Oregon, where Abbie + Nick grew up is a town where everyone knows one another. So when I mentioned to other Oregon couples that I was photographing Abbie and Nick’s wedding every single person said how fun and hilarious the two of them are! The day of the wedding was no exception. As you’ll see they had a huge bridal party that was a blast to hang out with and was up for my silly photos. Abbie + Nick were all smiles even with the gloomy weather, which thankfully didn’t turn to rainy weather until well in to the reception. We were able to visit Abbie’s grandmother’s lake front property for an exceptional backdrop!
Thank you + congrats to Abbie + Nick for allowing us to share your special day with you… I think we’ve somehow earned our Oregon honorary residents badge ;)
