I'm a lover of love who is addicted to Starbucks and goes through weekly phases of favorite foods. I'm a wifey to a firefighter and a dogmom to a grumpy Whippet. I love having lunch dates and dream of traveling the world.
I had such a great time Saturday at Tad and Sam’s wedding! And I loved having Samantha Newman with me as my second shooter!
The day started with Sam getting ready at the Embassy Suites in Westerville. Right off the bat, things were emotional, because Sam’s best friend had recorded a video for her. She unfortunately couldn’t be there for the big day because she had been deployed! The whole room was crying while Sam watched her friend wish her well from afar.
After getting a few photos at the venue, Sam wanted to do a first look with both her dad and her grandpa. It was such a sweet moment when they both turned around and saw her as a bride for the first time!
The ceremony was so sweet, with lots of tears and laughter. So many guests were there to support Tad and Sam and help them celebrate this amazing day! The rest of the night was filled with great food, tiny pies, fire pits, smores, and lots of dancing!
Tad and Sam, thank you SO MUCH for having me with you this weekend to capture all the moments from your wedding day! I missed seeing Amelia, but I know she’s happy for her mom and dad and have lots of extra wags for you when you come back home 🙂
