Tiffanie & Phil – August 19, 2017 – Hartville Kitchen Wedding

Tiffanie and Phil are a couple who laugh and love intensely.  They are truly the best of friends and deeply in love in that romantic way we all dream to be.  One of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies, Steel Magnolias says “laughter through tears is my favorite emotion” and I couldn’t agree more!  From playing around and being silly one moment to the reality of six years of loving each other culminating in this celebration of love making them a family causing an overflow of tears, it could not and did not fail to move all of us deeply.  I can only wish them many years of happiness and many, many, many, many, many trips to Disney…because a couple that has Beauty & The Beast as their wedding theme AND has their honeymoon at the Magic Kingdom (in August!) are absolutely going to live their happily ever after to the max!

Heather & Rob – August 12, 2017 Wedding – Warren, OH

Heather and Rob’s wedding was surrounded in the swirling, whirling love of their family.  Their children, parents, grandparents all helped these long time loves celebrate their special day.  Their day began as they prepared for their ceremony at the lovely Grace Methodist Church and after they exchanged their vows and celebratory kiss we whirled off to be silly and take photos in downtown Warren.   Heather is the quiet counterbalance to the more gregarious Rob and their kids are a blast of wit and silliness and seeing how happy they were to see their parents married made all colors seem bright, all laughter last longer and the sun was only in part responsible for the warmth of the day.   Their reception was held at Aulizio’s Banquet Center where we dined and then rocked out on the dance floor.
