Amy and Josh were married on a gorgeous day in September. The weather couldn't have been any more pleasant, and the emotion and excitement of the day was contagious. You see, Josh is in the Army and just returned from Afghanistan. He was there for over a year and has been back just about a month. You could just feel the emotion with every reunion that was made that day.
Amy was vibrant. In every glance at Josh, you could see her overflowing with excitement for him.
Josh had given Amy a gift to open the morning of the wedding. As I watched her unwrap the package, it was if she was slowly taking in each second that passed. She talked to her bridesmaids of Josh, and with each sweet thing she said, her excitement was growing. When she finally unwrapped the gift and gently opened the box, she exploded with sheer joy!
A beautiful necklace that would have sentimental value.
This is Josh. He had such a quiet presence about him, but with every smile that stretched across his face, you could tell he was captivated. As I look back at the day, I think every encounter he had with friends that day, he would take in every moment and be truly thankful for that acquaintence.
Amy's dress was fabulous! She couldn't have picked a better dress for herself. It was made for her!
I love how they looked at each other. I think I saw this same look about a hundred times that day!
Married! This was my assistant Caroline that took this shot. She told me it was her favorite of the day.
Josh had all his buddies that were deployed with him, to be there on his wedding day.
They were close friends that had fun!
Underneath Amy's beautiful dress were some pretty amazing heels...
We did some artistic shots in Oberlin. This is one of my favorite places to shoot.
Josh was so sweet, he would carry Amy so she didn't have to walk!
Then we headed to Schoefle gardens. This is such a gorgeous and amazing garden.
like a fairy tale...
Now I had to add all these shots with the red leaves because they are my favorite. They were so happy to be together.
The reception was right on the lake. How about the knife or sword that they used to cut the cake!
At sunset, they had a relaxing boat ride around the lake and by Cedar point. It was surreal.
Their first dance. This was so full of emotion and love that I was crying! It was so beautiful to see them together.
double rainbow all the way?? :)
Thank you Josh and Amy, your parents friends and family for letting me spend the day with you. It was a day I won't forget. It was truly amazing.
