Stacey and Patrick are getting married in June of 2013. Their wedding package includes a FREE engagement photo session, which is a great way for them to get to know me and me to get to know them. They chose to go to Wildwood MetroPark for their engagement portrait session. Here are just a few of the great images we created on that colorful fall day.
Welcome to Jon and Christine’s Wedding Blog. This is the story of their wedding day on June 16, 2012 told their way. Most of the images in this blog post were either requested by the bride and groom before the wedding or purchased by them and their families after the wedding. Many of these images were included in their wedding album, and with over 1200 photos to choose from, these are their picks.
Their day began at the Grand Plaza Hotel (formerly Crown Plaza) where everyone was getting ready, including the event staff, florist, and cake decorator.
The bride was in the hotel bridal suite getting ready with the rest of the ladies in the wedding party.
Many bride’s do “first look” photos with their soon to be husband. Christine did the first look photos with her dad.
The bridal suite had such a beautiful view, we took advantage of it for some pictures once everyone was ready.
Once everyone was ready, it was time to head to The Historic Church of Saint Patrick in Downtown Toledo for the wedding ceremony and photos of the groom and his groomsmen before the guests arrived.
Christine and Jon had a full catholic mass during their 5:00 pm wedding ceremony.
After the wedding ceremony, we were able to take formal family and bridal party photos at the church.
Then it was back to the Grand Plaza Hotel for the wedding reception. The bridal party stayed in the board room until their grand entrance.
The toasts were made and then dinner was served. The bride and groom were able to mingle with their guests during dinner.
After the dinner service, it was time for the cake cutting, the couple’s first dance, the father-daughter dance, the mother-son dance, and the bridal party dance.
At the end of the evening, the bride and groom sneaked up to the bridal suite for some fun and romantic nighttime photos since we were unable to go any where between the ceremony and reception because of the time.
Congratulations Christine and Jon on your wedding! May you have a long and happy marriage and share many more special occasions!
