The day after I returned from my ventures in Vegas, I had a wedding in Stockport, Ohio to shoot. I knew it was going to be good. I had photographed Alyssa’s mom’s wedding just a few year’s ago and they had a lovely wedding in the deep country full of great visuals. Upon arrival at the wedding, I was giddy to see the decorations. They did not disappoint one bit! It was charming.
The property was decorated inside and out with no details forgotten. The did a fine job. I think the guests enjoyed it just the same.
Alyssa seemed calm for the most part as she got ready for her big day……other than worrying about people seeing her in the window’s she was ready for this to happen. She had her bases covered from her own personal style of shoes, to a special ring as her something old, something blue.
Cody and the guy’s got ready next door. They were of high spirits. Much like Alyssa, Cody seemed ready without nerves. He was cool and calm.
The ceremony was performed in front of all their family and friends with a lot of laughter and sweet moments.
Cody and Alyssa’s son Luke shared a special moment during the ceremony.
A unique finish to their ceremony.
Now a family of 3.
On a side note, while the guest’s mingled in the reception area, I took Cody and Alyssa down by the lake to get some portraits. Because it was a bit of a walk we decided to take the golf cart down. I ended up having to drive the two of them and all my gear down this hill. To say I was nervous was an understatement……I don’t know what I was more nervous about, messing up their nice clothes on their wedding day or my camera gear. I think it was a tie on that one. But we made it in one piece thankfully, and didn’t end up in the pond. Getting back up the hill, well there are photos out there circulating how rough that was……it gave the guests a good laugh. I can laugh about it now. HA!
The location of the wedding was so far into the country….I loved it. It was so peaceful and quiet. I enjoyed my drive to the wedding, and seeing what was in store for the wedding was adding to my delight.
Details, details, details…I loved it! So well done!
The happy couple had their first dance as they started their reception. They had a wonderful BBQ dinner and yummy cupcakes to munch on. It was a wonderful evening.
Congratulations Cody and Alyssa, best wishes to you on your new adventures in life and love.
