There is something about fall and being with your loved during the cooling color changing season. I think it has to do with all of the snuggling up that I love so much. I’m definitely a snuggler and a snoozer for that matter. When the weather gets colder, I’m like a bear who needs to go into hibernation. There’s no waking up until it’s time to eat. Eat, snuggle, and sleep should be my personal motto for the next 6 months.
Sunday was spent with Shawna and Mike at Grotto Park. They were so cute and snuggly together. The park was full of color and I always love the stream running through it. Shawna kept making me laugh because she couldn’t look at Mike without giggling. I get such a kick out of things like that. Nonetheless they are such a sweet couple and I enjoyed capturing the silly little cuddly moments with them.
Califf and I spent our Saturday evening with our neighbors, Geoff and Gina. A couple times a year, they have a tattoo party with tattoo artist Gerald from Stigma Tattoos. They spiced things up this year with a costume party in light of Halloween. So I brought my equipment and had a mini photo session with everyone who came and everyone who got tattoos. Needless to say it was a fun night had by all.
I met Andrea and Ron back in the early spring to discuss the details of their Ohio wedding next fall. It pretty much will be next year to the month since they will be marrying next October. Both Andrea and Ron both work at the veterinary clinic in which both Mody and Chewy go to, so it’s nice to see familiar faces.
This past Sunday we met at the studio for their engagement session and had a chance to get around for a variety of shots. What a sweet and kind hearted couple to work with. You just can’t ask for anything more.
I can’t wait to see you guys in Toledo next fall!!
I know. I know. I’m a little behind with the blogging but nonetheless, I am blogging. That’s right. I’m taking you back to the 10th of October where it began at the quaint little Olivet Reformed Church where Katie was oh so anxiously waiting to see her husband to be. She looked so lovely in her beautiful gown.
Before the ceremony, they wanted to meet each other in the chapel. As Katie approached with emotion to her soon to be husband, Corey, was smiling from ear to ear at how beautiful Katie looked that day. Shortly after, their daughters Zooey and Riley joined Mom and Dad in the room. What a beautiful family! And what a fun family. They were laughing and snuggling with each other.
When the ceremony began, Zooey, couldn’t be without her mom, so Katie graciously held on to her darling little flower girl as she walked down the aisle and throughout the entire ceremony. It certainly didn’t stop Katie and Corey exchanging their vows.
Afterwards, the newlyweds headed over to Wedgewood Park for some outdoor shots. The colorful trees was a beautiful backdrop as the bride and groom snuggled closely in the cold outdoors. Then it was a quick trip to the reception where the real party began. They had party horns for the guests while the bridal party entered the room with there glow in the dark glasses and their glow in the dark bracelets and necklaces. It truly was a fun loving day for Katie and Corey and I was so blessed to be a part of it. Congratulations to you both!!
I have been very fortunate to have wonderful neighbors since I’ve moved to the north side of town 6 years ago. Geoff and Gina have been no exception. They are fun loving people whose large family keeps them on their toes. Don’t get me wrong. They maybe busy people but they make time for themselves and know how to let their hair down. Every summer is has been always been a great opportunity to hang out in the back yard until the wee hours of the night playing “Cornhole”. Of course my husband has been mostly an active player than myself. I’m usually a side liner always provoking other activity.
When I mentioned that Geoff and Gina have a large family, I wasn’t kidding. Between the both of them they have 6 kids!! Yeah, I said it 6 kids!!! Doesn’t Gina look amazing?!! Of course she didn’t have all six children but she still looks fantastic. They are no Jon and Kate but more like Brady Bunch but with one boy, and amazingly they all get along pretty well. Meeting with them on Sunday was nothing short of entertaining. It was great for the kids to just be themselves and several times I caught Geoff questioning himself like, “Why did I bring them here?” No worries, Geoff. They were great!! I love you guys and I’m so grateful to have you as neighbors.
