What a beautiful day for Nate + Julia’s wedding at the Toledo Museum of Art with their reception following at The Glass Pavilion. After a couple months of unpredictable weather, these two were graced with the ideal summer day to get married. Julia chose to wear her grandmother’s wedding dress from 1957 and then changed into her party dress for dancing. I loved that special element of something sentimental and so unique.
It was a fantastic day with these two who were so thrilled just to be married and throw a party to celebrate with their loved ones. And yes please to shooting in the museum spaces – obviously a work of art in themselves. These two wanted to save some time for sunset portraits which I am always a fan of. Post dinner and pre-dancing with a quick wardrobe change for Julia, their portraits outside the pavilion are some of my favorites. There is a certain level of relaxed and pure happiness that comes out during sunset portraits as the exhilaration of the day sets in.
