My husband, Joel, met Dennis over a decade ago when they worked together at a local pizza shop. They have both since moved on in their careers, but we are happy that we've been able to keep in touch over the years. After Dennis proposed to his girlfriend, Ashley, we were honored to be asked to photograph their wedding. We spent the day celebrating with Dennis and Ashley at Garden Brook Banquet Center in Cortland, Ohio, surrounded by their dearest family and friends.
I'm always happy to have time to photograph special details in the morning before the bride gets dressed for the ceremony.
Dennis and Ashley originally planned to have an outdoor wedding at the gazebo, but Garden Brook Banquet Center was the perfect rainy day venue since they also have an indoor space. Michael Thomas Entertainment was set up inside for the reception later, but Michael went above and beyond to make their wedding stress-free by also running the sound and music during their ceremony. An experienced DJ like Michael is invaluable, especially when last minute changes need to be made. Things don't always go as planned on wedding days, but when the bride and groom love each other like Dennis and Ashley do, nothing will get in their way of enjoying every moment! The ceremony was short, sweet, and genuine!
The rain slowed down just long enough for us to sneak some family and bridal party portraits outside by the gazebo. Their friends and family added so much fun and love to their day!
The ceremony location was transformed into a dance floor for the reception. It was a special evening of great food, kind words, dancing, laughter, romantic glances, celebrating, and love.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. King! We wish you a lifetime of unconditional love, happiness, and cake fights!
