Emily & Ryan // Wedding at the Tallmadge Historical Church

It would be an understatement to just say that Emily and Ryan’s wedding day was beautiful from start to finish. It was so much more in every way. It not only looked incredible, it felt amazing too. Watching Emily and Ryan together and working with them throughout the day was pure joy and we were honored to share such a special time with them.

The preparations began at home where Emily’s pups could be part of the morning activities before we headed to the Tallmadge Historical Church in the circle of Tallmadge for the ceremony. A longtime friend performed the service which was very emotional for everyone and a great personal touch to the day. The bridal party was super fun, so group photos were entertaining to say the least. After those events of the day were finished, we finally had some alone time with Emily and Ryan which we just loved and couldn’t get enough of. The mix of Emily’s stunning dress and Ryan’s Bond-ish style was such a perfect accent to their sweet and romantic interactions with each other. After portraits, there was nothing left but party time and we can’t even explain the fun and chaos that ensued once the dance floor opened up for the night. So now that you know how incredible the day was, here’s the proof…

We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it love - true love.
