Kiva + CJ – An Intimate Lake Erie Wedding

This year’s seen quite a few pivots – cancelled + delayed sports seasons, virtual church services, and so much home cooking. The wedding industry is certainly no exception.

Although the perfect location for Kiva + CJ’s wedding never changed, their guest list did. So on the fourth of July, in her parents’ backyard, Kiva married her love with only the closest of family members as witnesses. Somehow my name was lucky enough to end up on that list.

CJ’s son took photos right alongside me (the only competition I’ll always accept), their neighbors watched from a distance, and confetti fell as Kiva + CJ finally became husband + wife.

Those after ceremony, blissful newlywed moments are one of those times life just stands still. These are the moments they’ll think back on for the rest of their lives. With only the gentle waves crashing as our soundtrack, we took these photos.

I’ll never forget this day.

Kimi & Tim – A Market Garden Brewery Wedding in Ohio City

When I begin asking most of my couples about the wedding they’re planning, I hear a lot about the colors they’ll use throughout their decor, or the cake they’re so excited to eat. I love wedding details, and I’m always so excited to see their vision come to life. But I often wonder if these picture perfect weddings we’re striving for have caused us to lose sight of the things that matter.

This is why I loved being a part of Kimi & Tim’s wedding so much. When we first began planning, they made it so clear that their wedding was about the two of them, and their sweet boys. They wanted to invite those who mean the most to them, and that’s all that mattered.

Good food. Good friends. Good time. 

Their wedding was so special. I got to watch as fiances became husband and wife, and two boys became brothers. We spent the afternoon together, wandering around Ohio City, and eventually made our way to the spot where they’d say their vows. I’m so honored to have been a part of their day.

You + your loved ones are what matter on your wedding day. I hope you find the prettiest dress and that you book the most beautiful venue, but most of all, I hope that you remember why this is all happening – because you found someone and fell in love.
