Josh and Angela came up from sunny Florida for their wedding just outside Youngstown. Their friend also came from all over to celebrate. A few things I'm sure you'll notice are that the day was tons of fun, the decorations were super custom and creative and Josh and Angela are basically like models in front of the camera. Seriously, Nelli and I look at each other after a few shots and kind of did that wink, silent communications thing we do and we were both saying the same thing..."This is going to be easy." They were creative, fun and up for anything as you will see. Here's a favorite to start off with.
Angela had an Alice and Wonderland theme going and she did everything herself! She worked wonders with the venue. It's not suprising since she just was certified as a wedding planner in Sarasota, Florida. After seeing how custom everything was and the broad scope of her capabilities I would totally recommend her and hope to be at one her events capturing the details again one day. Hopefully on warm February evening:)
Outdoor wedding in Northeast Ohio in April anyone? Yes, please. The weather was all great all day. The best of the month probably.
I love this next one. Just taking it all in.
They incorporated a clause into their vows promising to make each other laugh. I don't think they'll have a problem with that one.
"Drop Dead Gorgeous"
They had a little trouble finding any privacy for our more romantic shots, so finally we just had send everyone to the reception:)
And now for the Alice in Wonderland themed reception.
The speeches were awesome - sentimental, super funny and original.
The cake cutting was a test of trust that they both passed.
These next two are descriptive of one of the best moments of the day. I'm a big fan of the anniversary dance. It's always inspiring for me to see these couples married 40 years and more who still glow with love for one another. You could tell that when Angela's grandma and grandpa won the anniversary dance it was a powerful moment because they had been such a good example to her for so long. I think everyone was inspired by that.
Let the dance party begin...
Hope you enjoy the preview Angela and Josh. We're thankful to have the chance to capture these memories for you and witness your day come together so brilliantly.
