This sweet couple met on eHarmony and instantly clicked. Their connection was extremely intellectual; they talked for hours about history and books. Bailey & Joe started talking on March 9, 2016, had their first date on the 12th (dinner at La Cha and Suessical the Musical at Elida High School), and made it official on the 16th. Even though neither had said it at that point they both knew it was forever and always.
Joe proposed to Bailey by waking her up with a kiss before church on 10/16/16 and asked :) he said he wanted to plan something more "special" but it was the middle of harvest and he had already had the ring for months. Bailey said "it was perfect, and very special."
Bailey wore a beautiful cap sleeved gown, and rose gold details. She wore a simple nude heel for the ceremony and had the cutest rose gold sequence sneakers for the rest of the day! Her bridesmaids wore the sweet black and white tea length dresses with matching shoes.
Joe looked handsome in his vest and rolled sleeves and his groomsmen sported a similar look exchanging the vest for suspenders.

Joe had a surprise for his soon to be sister-in-law
The ceremony was held on a beautiful sunny day at Joe's home church, St. John's Lutheran Church in Napoleon, Ohio.
They had their guest sign cornhole boards! I LOVE this idea!
Bailey's mom works for coke so they thought it would be super fun and cute to do a few photos with personalized coke bottles...they were right :)

Lexi & Wes decided to get married surrounded by their family in a gazebo at the Toledo Botanical Gardens and it was PERFECT! Lexi wore a beautiful fitted lace gown and veil. Her bouquet was absolutely beautiful and created by HER with flowers from the grocery! What?? And this isn't something she already does, I was so impressed when I heard this! I would love to be able to just whip up something that looked this professional! Thank you Lexi & Wes for allowing me to join you and your family for such a special day! I wish you may years of happiness and joy <3
