Most bride and grooms want plenty of sunshine and warm or cool weather for their wedding day. Rain is almost always dreaded for fear that your outdoor ceremony will have to take place indoors – among many other reasons. Carly and Drew wanted snow…falling from the skies, soft, romantic, and fluffy snow. They told me they didn’t care how cold or windy it was they were definitely going to get the majority of their portraits outside. They are my kind of couple.
Held at Scioto Reserve Country Club, the wedding day felt nothing short of magical. Natural light spilled in through the floor to ceiling windows, the aisle was lined with beautiful Chiavari chairs, and twinkle lights were draped from the ceiling. A stunning sight at every angle – including the outdoor grounds, where sure enough, it had snowed. The trees were covered in the stuff; with the sun peeking through every now and then. Carly came prepared with Ugg boots and leggings underneath her GORGEOUS Hayley Paige gown found at Matina’s Bridal in Cleveland, Ohio. Her Uggs, of course, were later swapped out for some stunning Badgley Mischka heels complete with a lucky coin taped to the insole.
Drew and Carly were by far one of the most determined couples I worked within 2017. They didn’t complain even once while taking on the 12mph winds and 9-degree weather for thirty minutes at a time. I couldn’t imagine a better way to end the year than with these two lovebirds.
Congratulations Drew + Carly!
