I am such a big fan of small, intimate weddings and it was a HUGE blessing to spend my Friday afternoon with this couple! You guys..they’ve been together for over 10 years! And what I love about them most is the obvious authenticity of their love. It just radiates from their hearts and they way they interact with each other.
They chose to have a simple wedding at the beautiful Shade Winery in Shade, OH surrounded by what matters most – family. This place is gorgeous! And while they don’t have many weddings there annually, I highly recommend it for a small intimate ceremony or gathering. Neal and his beautiful bride were most helpful to Jess, Frank and their family..plus – the scenery is amazing and I hear the wine delicious.
Jess looked absolutely stunning in her dress and I was dying over the beading in the back. They chose to have a “first look”, which I was SO excited over! We used the vineyard as the perfect location for Frank to see his bride for the first time. With his back turned away, Jess’ mom and her baby sis helped her walk down to her future hubby.
The look on his face when he turned around was priceless and brought tears to my eyes! The beauty of this day, rain clouds and all, was incredible.
I am so thankful that they invited me to be part of such a special day and I can’t wait for them to see the photos that they have as memories!
Thanks guys! It was an honor.
