Courtney & Chad [ A Love Story ] – Kalida, Ohio

Chad proposed to Courtney in 2015 at a Tiger’s game in Detroit. Of course she said yes!  The two started right away making plans for their April 2016 wedding. From the dress, to the venue, to the colors, Courtney had a wedding fit for a queen.


The two Kalida graduates were married at Saint Michael’s Catholic Church. Of course Father Mark presented a gift to Chad (like he does with so many of the weddings he performs). Chad, being a former baseball player was presented with a ball and mitt. And then Father spent the next few moments comparing marriage to the gift Chad received.


After the ceremony, the two spent some time visiting some establishments in Putnam County before arriving at the Kalida K of C Hall for their reception. The entire day a smile never left Courtney’s face. She had found her prince and anyone looking at her knew she was very much in love. DSC_1578

Kathy & Chris Engaged [A Love Story] Mon Ami Winery, Port Clinton

Not too far north and east near Lake Erie there is a beautiful winery and restaurant called Mon Ami Winery & Restaurant.  On Saturdays Mon Ami features a seafood buffet with snow crab legs and perch.  I  met Kathy and Chris there for their engagement session.

After we snapped a few images at the winery, we headed east a few minutes to Marblehead Lighthouse.  The skies were a beautiful blue but with temperatures in the 50s, we didn’t stay too long. We did however get some great photos of Kathy and Chris with this beautiful backdrop.
