Sarah & Bear’s wedding day at The Lake Club of Ohio was beautiful, full of genuine happiness, & complete with tons of dancing & celebration! Although they planned for an outdoor wedding at The Lake Club, the weather didn’t quite cooperate that day, but none of that mattered when Sarah walked down the aisle & saw the boy who stole her heart at her brother’s baseball games when she was only 12 years old. Everything about Sarah & Bear’s wedding day color palette was soft & dreamy. The blushes & creams had the reception space looking bright & airy. We were both completely choked up in a very emotional moment during the reception between Sarah & her grandmother- just wait until you see those photos! All in all, the day was lovely & we’re honored we got to be part of it.Sarah’s gown was from Toula’s Bridal in Canfield.The first look between Sarah & her father was a heart-melting moment.

We’re thankful for the Sky Room when previously planned outdoor wedding ceremonies are rained out.The ceremony performed by Pastor Joe was personal & meaningful. His words meant a lot to me as a married woman in attendance. I’m sure they did to many others, as well.
