I knew this was going to be another memorable wedding day. Rachael and Mike are friends of Alana and Dave, who I photographed last year, and that wedding was an absolute blast to document. Rachael and Mike’s wedding picked up where Alana and Dave’s left off. The bridal party got ready at Emerald Event Center before being shuttled to Saint Mary Parish in Elyria. Rachael and Mike’s lively personalities shined throughout the ceremony. I enjoyed capturing a range of emotion, from anticipation to reflection to bliss, throughout the day. They let loose and truly soaked up each moment. We stopped at the Solstice Steps in Lakewood Park for a few relaxed portraits before heading back to Emerald Event Center for an action-packed reception.
