Neha & Troy – May 26, 2018 Wedding at Gervasi Vineyard

Neha and Troy are so similar yet different; each with a different cultural background and traditions.  And yet, as love always does, the differences become new experiences and the similarities of being raised in a close, loving family and faith make them a perfect fit.  And their wedding day celebrated all of the facets of their faith, family, heritage and traditions into a brilliant gem of beauty, emotion and fun!

With both a Hindu and a Christian wedding ceremony their day was packed with special moments and quick clothing changes.  A little rain (and sometimes a lot) tried to slow us down, but that was a non-option and we simply tossed up our umbrellas and kept on keeping on.  These doubly united newlyweds are a true force of nature and I wish them all the best as they move to a new state together and begin their lives as husband and wife!

Nicole & Bobby – May 12, 2018 Wedding – Fowler’s Mill Golf Course

Boom!  Wedding season 2018 has officially begun!  And like most weddings many things were perfect, a few were not as planned (curse you, Ohio weather!), but in the end there new Mr. & Mrs. Slapnicker are soaking up the fun on their honeymoon and the celebration of their nuptials was one heck of a bash!

We decided to take advantage of the timelessly gorgeous Punderson Manor Lodge, where the bridal party had booked lodgings, for both getting ready and formal photos and while the weather decided to go all thunderstorm on us we found some simply stunning spots inside.  So, the Bride donned her gown in the Library in the softly filtered light from the stained glass windows and the Groom and his fellows had some fun getting geared up in the custom Cavs jerseys which were gifts from the Bride and Groom. And from the moment that Nicole descended the grand staircase to join Bobby,  who had simply the largest grin ever as he soaked in her glowing beauty, there was only the sound of laughter and maybe a few sniffles as tears of joy sparkled in several eyes.

The events team at Fowler’s Mill Golf Course did a wonderful job accommodating an impromptu indoor ceremony and we even snuck outside as the skies finally cleared shortly before the ceremony was scheduled to begin and took advantage of all the clean green that is so welcome after our extended winter.  Personally I could not have stayed inside with the smell of the huge array of donuts permeating every inch of the venue! Fear not, I scored one or two and they were as delicious as they looked!  I love me a couple who doesn’t stop at cake, but goes full baked good insanity!

Once the vows were said, the party kicked off and let me tell you that even though the Slapnickers were touted as the biggest partiers of them all, every one of the guests were over the moon to celebrate this couple.  James, of Vybe Entertainment, was masterful at getting everyone up and shaking their groove thing.  Folks did the Stroll and the Cha-cha-slide and no group has ever gone lower during Shout!  And all throughout the evening our Newlyweds grabbed little moments alone, laughing and dancing and just giving off the “Just Married” glow that lets me and everyone else know just what true love looks like.
