May 22 we kicked off 2021 wedding season… and it felt awesome.  It felt like 2019 wedding vibes.  It’s funny how when entering a room, without a mask, we have to declare: I’m full vaccinated, is this OK I don’t have a mask on?  New normal for a little while?  I’m not sure but I want to be respectful to all in the room.

Maggie and Reed scored the perfect summer, but spring, day.  They team they assembled, felt like home and their friends and family complimented the couple’s laid back vibe about all the fuss of the day.  Maggie looked a dream and her ladies wore fluttery white dresses perfect for a waterfront wedding.

I had an awkward moment at the church when I thought Reed’s look a like brother was him, thinking it was odd that he decided to grow a short beard between the engagement photos and wedding day.  The couple was surprised by a bagpiper at the end of their ceremony, leading them out of the historic church of St. Mary’s in Sandusky.

Part of the dream team included Queen Bee Brooke from Bee for the Day… not only does she give the couple and their families peace of mind, she also helps me tremendously to “stay in my own lane” focusing in on what I am there to do, not herd cats, but take photographs.  Always grateful for her assistance in that arena.

It had been awhile since I photographed a reception at Catawba Island Club and I was pumped to see the little makeover the patio space received since my last visit.  The decor and flowers were done to perfection… the choice of color palette made the tent shine, maybe the best I’ve ever seen it.  Luxe but earthy and inviting… isn’t that what every wedding should feel like?!

Sunset at CIC is always magical… I mean, when there isn’t a crazy thunderstorm… we’ve encountered those more times than I’d care to remember.  But for Maggie and Reed, definitely top 5 sunset moments out there.

If you watched the BTS that I really wanted to finally do, after all these years, you know we had a great day.  I am so pleased with the moments that we captured, the colors and light are making me pat myself on the back.  It was an honor to photograph the day for all!
