Lindsey and Zach's Savannah Center Wedding

We had the honor of photographing Lindsey's sister's wedding a few years ago and were thrilled to work with their family again!  Nothing makes us happier than documenting all the the milestones for our favorite families.

To say we had a great time with Lindsey and Zach would be an understatement for sure!  Whether it was their family, wedding party or friends, we laughed the entire day.  It's been said that Zach is a one man party and we can believe it!  Lindsey and Zach were also open to any photo opportunities giving us free reign to play.  I have to say it was very hard to narrow down images for this post and Facebook!

We also loved the idea of incorporating Lindsey and Zach's farm life into their wedding theme.  The mason jars, jute ribbon, lanterns and all of their other great personal touches made the event truly their own.  BTW great idea to just have the guys wear vests instead of the traditional tux to help beat the summer heat.  Not only were the guys more comfortable, but the whole wedding party had to love wearing their Converse all day instead of dress shoes...probably explains the packed dance floor ;)

Congratulations to such a sweet, wonderful couple!  We are truly thankful that you shared your amazing day with us!  Don't forget that you are welcome to view and tag more images on the studio's Facebook page.

James and Meryl's Schuster Center Wedding

Meryl and James lucked out and had the perfect weather for their July wedding...not too hot and plenty of clouds (photographers love clouds!).  The break in the summer heatwave allowed us to photograph all around Dayton giving us lots of backgrounds to play with :)

Their use of aqua at the Schuster was a perfect way to tie in the Winter Garden's signature aqua colored beams.  The square tables and linens from Prime Time Party Rental gave the room a clean contemporary feel. Can you believe that they handmade all those paper flowers covering the staircase!?  So pretty, but definitely a labor of love.  The dessert bar was a big hit with kids of all ages, especially the R2D2 groom's cake.  Darth Vader even made an appearance on the garter.  Who says you can't have a StarWars theme at a wedding?

We had a wonderful time with James and Meryl's super sweet family and friends.  And of course, photographing Meryl and James is always a treat for us since they are so cute together.  Their engagement session was one of our favorites from this year.  Fell free to leave messages for the newlyweds below in Comments.  Don't forget that there are more photos for you to view and tag on the studio's Facebook page.  Congrats!

Julie and Chad's Schuster Center Wedding

Julie and Chad are such a sweet, genuine, fun couple that their wedding day just flew by for us.  We had so much fun hanging out and laughing with their family and friends!  And of course, it was super fun to photograph at UD Arena.  They are both super-fans and have spent many happy evenings there cheering on the Flyers.

Purple seems to be the hot color this year, and we loved all the various shades of purple combined together.  The orchids (Jennifer's favorite) on the cake were so beautiful with the rhinestone ribbon.  By including the black bridesmaids dresses and table linens, the purple wasn't too overwhelming and complimented the Schuster beautifully!

Julie and Chad's wedding day had near record breaking temperatures.  Everyone made it through the daytime heat just to turn it back up again on the dance floor.  Julie and Chad both come from families who like to dance, and the had the place jumping.  So fun to see everyone having such a great time! 

A special Thank You to Julie and Chad and their wonderful family for shring this special day with us!  Please feel free to leave messages for the newlyweds below and you can see and tag more images on the studio's Facebook page.  Congrats!
