When a couple can be adorable + cuddly at a sunrise engagement session, I know their wedding day will be a breeze. Dana + Aaron passed that challenge with flying colors ;) Their wedding took place at Dana’s parents home which sits on several acres, so much rustic character, personal touches & emotion made their day one I will never forget. They both welcomed the emotions, let it wash over them, take it in & enjoyed every single second of how special it is to have the most important people surrounding you for one fantastic day.
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 ;)
Erika + Nathan’s downtown Toledo wedding photos with Toledo’s skyline & murals are modern + artistic. When we were discussing photo locations for Erika and Nathan’s Toledo wedding, they said they wanted to highlight their home town of Toledo, classic downtown Toledo. They were getting married downtown at the gorgeous St. Paul’s Lutheran Church with a bridal parlor that made us swoon! Registry Bistro hosted their reception with grazing stations of amazing food by Chef Erika Rapp. The space has character, doubles as an art gallery. Registry Bistro is located in the historic Toledo building, Secor Hotel. It has a modern, industrial atmosphere. The ideal wedding venue for a modern, artistic couple looking for a non-cookie cutter Toledo Wedding Venue. The ballroom was decorated by Chicago Event designer Andi Allen which featured a custom made LOVE marquee light on the dance floor as a focal point. Their glow stick exit ended the night along with a vintage Nova. Toledo wedding photographer Mary Wyar Photography at Registry Bistro downtown Toledo reception.
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.
