Clayton & Kristen's Backyard Wedding!

Clayton and Kristen were married on September 17th, 2016.  The weather was iffy, it rained here and there but it didn't last long and the sky's were blue.  They were set to be married on Clayton's mom's property.  It was BEAUTIFUL.  Their ceremony site was nestled back in the trees, and their tents were perfectly placed behind the ceremony location.  One tent for tables and one tent for dinner and dancing--complete with a custom made black and white dance floor to match their colors.  She ordered her dress online, he wore his dad's ring, she wore moms earrings.  My favorite kind of personal touches!  

Sometimes you just need a moment before you walk down the aisle...

Or maybe two moments <3

Dad making sure the sky is clear!

Kristen has a bakery business.  She made all the cupcakes and cake pops!  I told her she was crazy to do that for her own wedding, but they turned out amazing...and they tasted just as great! 

I say it all the photographers we aren't there to snap photos of your day.  We're there to make sure your day is perfect.  I've tied bows, fixed hair, helped Grandmas walk, held flowers, dried flowers, and bustled SO MANY dresses.  This time I sewed Kristen's dress. :)  

Kristen & Clayton, thank you so much to the both of you for letting us be a part of your (beautiful) day.  I hope you cherish these memories forever.  I wish you nothing but the best and I can't wait to see your love grow through the years! <3 

Jacqueline & Matt are Married! (Akron Ohio Backyard Wedding)

Jacqueline and I have been been long time social media friends.  I've supported her small business (see it here) and met her to buy cute headbands and accessories from her!  She moved from Columbus to Akron to live with Matt and pursue their relationship.  They got engaged and I was over the moon when she asked me to photograph their wedding!    They had their day set for September 3rd, 2016.  Their ceremony was held at an adorable gazebo right on the water, followed by a reception with their friends and family at their home.  They did such a great job with all of the details, from this cute sign in their entry way, the ice cream, to the kids was all perfect! 

She walked all the way down the aisle with her face hidden hahaha. 

Congratulations again Jacqueline & Matt.  Thank you for having us be a part of your big day!  You two are both gorgeous and I'm so excited for your future together! <3
