M & Mrs Manns | Renewal

Evie & Dustin married with a small ceremony in the summer so that Evie's grandmother could attend, it wasn't until the fall that they held their big celebration! I was so excited when Evie asked me to be apart of their big day, including bridal portraits!! If you missed their bridal portraits, they're amazing! You can find them here! They held their renewal ceremony & reception with family and friends at the Kenton Armory, It was a really neat place!! The rain couldn't damper the mood, everything was perfect!! It was an honor to watch these two recommit their love surrounded by family and friends!!




Evie & Dustin | Bridal Portraits

It's not very often that you have a bride who is willing to put on her dress before her big day, but Evie was! Her request for bridal portraits was a dream come true! My favorite part of every wedding is the time I get to take pictures of my brides and grooms!! Evie still wanted to capture those moments of Dustin seeing his beautiful bride for the first time and I was SO excited she decided to do a first look! So for all my future brides... this is exactly why you should do a first look!! Right before she got there, Dustin said to me.. I'm kinda nervous!! It was SO cute!


I absolutely LOVED these pictures and was so glad we could incorporate Haiden into them!! Enjoy these bridal portraits and be on the look out for their beautiful wedding.. it will be on the blog soon!

Shawna & Ryan | The Waz Wedding

Beautiful is the easiest way to describe this wedding. I can't begin to explain how much I enjoyed being apart of this wedding! The wedding party was SO fun and i'm still trying to figure out how Shawna & Ryan got so many beautiful friends! Such a good looking wedding party!! Shawna & Ryan exchanged vows at Wildwood Metro Park in Toledo Ohio, it was amazing! Their reception was held at Premier in Toledo- this place was so neat!! Shawna & I had talked over the phone and through messaging a few times about their big day, and she informed me of a little surprise she had for Ryan-- I got teary eyed just hearing about it! Ryan would be missing a huge piece at his wedding since his father had passed and would not be there. I know all too well, what that feeling is like! Shawna arranged for Ryan's father's wedding band to be attached to his boutonniere--so sweet right?! I told her i'd probably cry enough for the both of us, but I held it together pretty well! They also had a balloon release for those who could not physically share in the day!

The wedding went off with out any hitches--well except I moved the scissors they were supposed to use to cut the balloons. yup. thats right. I about died when I realized what they were actually for! Don't worry, I confessed right after the wedding. Talk about traumatizing.

Other than that- the wedding was perfect! Thank you SO much Shawna & Ryan for allowing me to be a part of your day! Wishing you both a life time of fun, love and happiness! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from their big day!
