CASSANDRA + BRYAN - A Coffee Inspired Wedding at Allardale Park in Medina, Ohio
Hi, Amber here!
As promised, we're catching you up on all the wonderful people we spent time with this past Fall through now. We've implemented steps to be much more intentional and consistent in our communications with all of you, our lovely followers, because we don't want you to think for one second that we take you for granted – we value each and every one of you who give your time following and supporting this business of ours! PLUS, we have so much to show you over the next several weeks…we adore showcasing our clients! So without further adieu, let's dive into the wedding of this adorable, fun-loving Wiley Couple...Cassandra & Bryan!
We immediately fell in love with Cassandra & Bryan at their engagement session (pop on over to this blog post to check it out) and knew we were going to have the best time with them throughout their wedding journey! Seriously, you all...when we wrapped their engagement session, we were full of joy and SO excited for their wedding day!!
When we arrived at Allardale for the big event, it was as if no time had passed since we’d last been together...we were among friends! And everywhere we looked there were personal touches that showcased the romance and love of these two. And I mean everywhere! That beautiful pergola arch at the alter? Yeah, Bryan made that. All the wooden crates you see as part of their decor? Yeah, Bryan made those too. And they had this amazingly choreographed transition that turned their altar area into their head table by using the hay bales and adding a door as the tabletop! But our absolute, heart-clenching favorite part of their wedding was their exchange of vows. They wrote their vows themselves (something we LOVE getting to witness), and I was teared up by the time the officiant announced them husband and wife. Everything they said to each other spoke to their deep love, and we could just see it on their faces...these two are mad for each other! And Bryan, oh sweet Bryan...he incorporated song lyrics into his vows to Cassandra and SANG them to her!!! You all, I was melting. I had the sappiest smile on my face the entire time my camera was clicking away, and I'd bet you my left shoe (and my right shoe!) that everyone else in that place did too!
Despite some wet weather and a very distinct chill in the air, we loved our portrait time with them, getting them all to ourselves for a bit...joy and laughter abounded. And we had an especially fun moment when Cassandra's uncle came running out to meet us on the hill to photo bomb them, hahaha! (Be sure to scroll through to catch that one!) Their guests really surrounded them with love and celebration. When the DJ played a remix of #SELFIE, everyone...and I mean, EVERYONE wanted a selfie with the couple! It was so much fun! That's really the best way to sum up the entire night, pure F-U-N!
From Bret and I, a big CONGRATULATIONS to these newlyweds! We hope you can feel all the joy of their day as you scroll through their images!
