Kait+Pat’s mid century modern wedding at Toledo Country Club had me so very humbled to have made the cut! Bee for the Day made everything run smooth. Bartz Viviano outdid themselves with beautiful succulent planters with bright tropical flowers that made me wish I knew how to keep such lovely things alive in my own home. AND my girl Aimee at Modernly Events brought in pops of vintage decor, aqua + teak & all sorts of mid century modern goodness! Oh my EAMES ;)
I remember the evening I first FaceTimed with Maude + Zach, who live in Baltimore, I felt inspired by their enthusiasm, energy & overall good vibes. I hung up thinking, they would be amazing to work with! When their email came through to make it official a few days later, I was pumped. I knew it would be a lovely day.
Sometimes it isn’t so much about having pretty things to photograph, although their wedding certainly encompassed the colorful & lush florals that I recall them describing, but just having the honor in photographing a day for two people who you know are perfect compliments for one another. Soul twins- as I recently heard a best man describe another couple. Being able to witness the joy a whole family has for the couple, the traditions & personal touches that will make it a day where they were all together for a few hours just celebrating & having fun. Absorbing good vibrations in a tent in Perrysburg with our cameras. That is really what makes being a wedding photographer worth it. It is bonus points when there is an abundance of amazing tropical flowers & a wedding dress that takes your breath away… or the fireworks. I mean, it would be good to have more fireworks at weddings.
Thank you Maude and Zach for the honor of inviting our crew in documenting this special day for you & your families. It was beautiful in every way.

In Toledo our area code is 419 which just so happens to be April 19th. So being that we’re Toledo, there is a fun filled day in our city where pretty much everyone is out and about partaking in festivites. On this day, I ran into Natalie Pohorecki who was putting together a huge wedding giveaway for The Pinnacle Maumee + Toledo City Paper. They hadn’t found a photographer for the date and guess who had August 16th free? We did! As you’ll see with the list below of professionals involved, it was some of my favourite people and best in their fields in the 419.
Andrea + Justino were very warm and gracious to everyone involved on their wedding day. They laugh easily with one another and were a joy to be around.
