MOLLY & MACKENZIE: A Whimsical & Rustic Spring Wedding in Wooster, Ohio
These are just a few words that come to mind when thinking about our time with Molly and Mackenzie on their wedding day. After taking some time off this past Winter to focus on our recently expanded family (our son gained a baby sister in the Fall!), we were thrilled to come out of hibernation and kick off wedding season with this wonderful couple, their family and friends! While we can never get enough of our kiddos, it felt so good to stretch our creative muscles! We get really excited for weddings because of the fast pace, all the genuine moments to capture, and the pure privilege of being welcomed into the inner circle on one of the most cherished days of our couples’ lives!
It became apparent to us very quickly that Molly & Mackenzie have very strong ties with those who witnessed and celebrated their marriage...ties to family, to longtime friends, to their church...to a community. One especially touching moment was when their pastor became emotional as he pronounced them husband and wife. Having been their youth pastor, and returning to their church to officiate, how wonderful it must have been for him to marry these two people whose faith he guided and supported while watching them grow up! The day was filled with sweet moments like this...loving and joyful moments among Molly’s and Mackenzie’s parents and siblings...laughter shared among friends...and plenty of fun on the dance floor!
Now, we have to mention the decor! As you’ll notice among some of our favorite pics, the lovely details are so well thought out. Everywhere we looked there were beautiful touches that evoked a sense of elegant, rustic whimsy. One that we found so clever was the word searches at each place setting along with crayons - fun! And all the amazing hand-lettered signs...love!! We learned the Mother-of-the Bride made all of them herself (yeah, WOW!), and from working closely with her throughout the planning process, we know she contributed so much to pulling everything together for this day. We know a great planner when we see one, and she’d be hard to beat! We could sense the love in every detail of this wedding that was FULL of special touches from many of Molly & Mackenzie's loved ones.
It was a true joy to have been a part of their wedding. When we packed up our gear and said our final congratulations and goodbyes, we went home happy and energized by the entire experience. We wish them so much happiness as they move into this next chapter as husband and wife!
Now before you start thinking this is the last you’ll hear from us about Molly & Mackenzie’s day, we have something else - something new - that we’re looking to add to our repertoire and services. Stay tuned for the unveiling...they’re the featured couple!
