Laura & Jake's Avon Country Club Wedding
Laura & Jake's day was so sweet, fun and intimate. I met up with Jake and the guys at Quaker Steak & Lube in Vermillion OH as they had a few wings and drinks before the ceremony. The church that they decided to say their "I Do's" in is one of those churches that you think about as a little girl when you picture your dream small wedding. A cute white chapel, with pretty stained glass and a cute gazebo in the park across the street. The way Jake looked at Laura the entire day was just the sweetest. You could tell he was absolutely smitten with her and was so damn excited to be married to her. After their ceremony, we went down to Main Street Beach in Vermillion for some bridal party photos. After some great shots of the guys and girls on the beach we headed to Jake & Laura's house in Avon. They have this gorgeous backyard that is their own private forest. Sunflowers are Laura's favorite flower and Jake had planted some in their garden after they closed on the house. She was so surprised when they started blooming! (I mean....how stinkin' sweet, right?!) They had recently purchased their first home and wanted to remember their wedding day with some photos of them in their new home.
Their reception was at the Country Club in Avon. After a few more shots of the bridal party with Laura and Jake we snuck away on some golf carts for some more intimate portraits of just the bride and groom. By that time in the afternoon the sun was shining this amazing gold light down on us and we found a great patch of trees on the golf course for some photos.
The reception space was decorated so perfectly. It was clean, and simple and beautiful. The simple, white hydrangea centerpieces were just adorable and the cupcakes were absolutely delicious.
I had such a lovely day with both of them! Congratulations you two!
