Toledo Country Club Wedding Photos
Toledo Country Club is one of my favourite wedding venues in Toledo.
It has a great laid back feel to it and certainly not a stuffy, formal country club vibe. Toledo Country Club is a premier Toledo Wedding venue and have given Mary Wyar Photography brides and grooms amazing weddings & beautiful backdrop for their Toledo Country Club wedding photos.
Here are my Top 3 Things to Consider when having your wedding at Toledo Country Club.
Toledo Country Club Outdoor Ceremony Location
You have a few options for your wedding ceremony location at Toledo Country Club. You can do it on the lawn adjacent to the patio + living room. This is nice because as your guests arrive at the venue, they only are a few steps away from your ceremony.
There is also the option of having it at the amphitheater which is quite the view! Built in seating and chairs can be added on the lawn at the bottom. Much more dramatic option.
Bonus! They have plenty of room inside to have an indoor ceremony if there is inclement weather ;)
For summer weddings at Toledo Country Club, the outdoor dance floor is just the bees knees. I LOVE photographing the first dance outdoors! Guests can greet you outdoors where they had been cocktail hour-ing, watch your first dance and then go in together for toasts + dinner.
If you will be utilizing the outdoor dance floor all night, we highly recommend adding lighting! Ensure the stranded bulbs above have been tested and work the day before. Adding uplight around the perimeter or coiling additional twinkle lights through the patio railings to add more interest to your dancing photographs and prevent them from having just a solid black background.
Just like any wedding where you have your ceremony and reception at the same venue, doing a First Look is something we highly recommend… especially at Toledo Country Club! When your guests are mingling near the location where your creative portraits are taking place, it is quite easy to get behind, not have as many photographs and get distracted by friends and family nearby. This would also allow you to partake in cocktail hour, greeting and thanking guests during this time instead of feeling the need to go from table to table later on in the night. Get that party started sooner!
