You don’t get much more fun than a kiss from a giraffe on your wedding day. If you are wondering, a wedding at the Toledo zoo is everything you can imagine.
Dave + Katelyn | Lovett Hall Wedding | Dearborn, Michigan
Sometimes (ok, most of the time), blogs are hard for me to write. I sit down at my desk. The sunlight is coming in my window, and I get writer’s block. I am not a writer, at all, so why on earth would I even have writer’s block? But that’s really a digression.
I just know that I can’t tell you how wonderful a wedding day really is. Words can’t describe the hundreds of loving looks that Dave gave Kate all day long or how many memories were running through mom’s mind as she watched her baby girl dance with her new husband, but I can tell you they are blessed.
We started the day at the Henry Hotel. It was one of the best wedding mornings. Just relaxed and chill. Katelyn knew it was raining out, but I had told her how much I love rain (and the number of umbrellas that I have in my car at any given time). She really didn’t care. She was marrying the man that really does complete her.
They did their first look at the hotel. Right in the hallway. I think the tears flowed from everyone that happened to see what was happening. Dave’s reaction didn’t disappoint. After we jumped in a Model T and headed to the village for portraits. As a Greenfield junkie, I can’t get enough of the entire place….rain or shine. But we had just enough of a break to get some killer shots before heading into the ceremony. The couple then greeted family and friends in the classically stunning Lovett Hall. The entire day suited them.
To Dave + Kate, I just love you. You know it, and you know I cherish you and your family as friends. I can’t wait to see what your future holds–I can almost promise it will be abundantly joyful!
