Minster Ohio Wedding- Bruno & Alyssa


There were quite a few first’s for me this past Saturday. I got to return to a small town in northwestern Ohio nearly 23 months after I first shot there. I got to ride around with the bridal party in a hay wagon. I got to stop at not one, but two different pubs with everyone. I watched as the DJ’s performed some pretty spectacular coordinated dance moves. And I ate McDonald’s fries on the two hour drive home.

This was one of the most laid back weddings I’ve ever shot! Literally all Bruno and Alyssa cared about was walking down that aisle and getting married! I loved every simple detail that was involved in the day. From the starburst earrings, to the matching Chanel bottles, to the classic black, white, and gold color palette. These Michigan-ers really pulled off an amazing celebration!!

Bruno and Alyssa, I can’t thank you enough for having me there with you last weekend! I’ve been so excited for your wedding, and it was even better than I imagined! I hope all of your European wanderlust dreams come true while you’re relaxing on your honeymoon!

A huge Thank You to all the vendors who put in so much hard work to make this day special!
