I first met Taylor and John at a bridal show in Findlay this past spring. Taylor called me that night to book with me and I was overjoyed! Soon we met again for their engagement session, they were a joy to work with, and their session turned out amazing!
I absolutely love how John looks at Taylor. You can tell how in love they are and I am not surprised he had such a sweet proposal for Taylor. "We lived on the second floor of our apartment and I had just gotten home from work. I walked inside the apartment building and flower petals were on the stairs. I thought it was cute but didn't think they were for me. Single roses were scattered around as well. Petals were leading from the first floor all the way to our apartment. I got to my door and realized they were all for me. I walked inside and flowers were everywhere! That's when I saw John and he handed me a glass of wine and proposed to me :)"
Taylor wore an absolutely gorgeous gown. She looked just like a princess in her A-line gown with a fully beaded bodice and full tulle skirt. She modified the train from the original gown but left a little bit behind for her mom :) She wore a beautiful diamond necklace from her late grandmother and a sweet tiara. Her bouquet was a large arrangement of fall colored flowers and the perfect addition to her fall themed wedding!
I think John enjoyed his gift from Taylor :) I helped make it and totally didn't put 2 and 2 together at first that that was what he was opening! Have to say I loved getting to witness it being opened!
John gave Taylor tickets to see the Packers play the Browns, she LOVED it!!
Taylor and John had a beautiful sunny 82 degree October day! I must add though, that we at times felt like we were in a hurricane! It was quite possibly the windiest situation I have photographed with gusts 20-30 mph but these two were champs and we would shoot between the gusts if we were in a gusty area.
The ceremony was held on Taylor's parent's property in a white tent situated a short distance from another tent that held the reception. We were sounded by trees and it was stunning.

The fall theme continued into the tent which was full of the glow of string lights. The round white tables were decorated with beautiful arrangements in white pumpkins next to small tea candles. Hay bales were positioned at the entrance topped with metal tubs of ice, wine, and assorted beverages. Next to the drinks was a super cute smores station. The incredibly delicious meal was catered and served to guest by the AMAZING crew of The Gathering. A table near the back was overflowing with fall themed goodies next to their cake that continued the purple theme from the guys' vests and ties. Everything tied beautifully together and guests danced the night away to music provided by Speed of Sound Entertainment.
