Melissa + Brian

Melissa + Brian | The Lodge at Allardale | Medina, Ohio

MELISSA + BRIAN'S wedding on July 1st was nothing less than spectacular. The theme of the day could have been summed up as “Dancing and Details”. It goes without saying that hours went into the planning and execution of the decorating details. From the purchase of hundreds of mix-and-match plates for the dinner and cake services to the walls of photos memorializing family members who were present in spirit, it’s clear that MELISSA + BRIAN and their family spent hours arranging these details and more for their big day.

Besides the bride’s stunningly beautiful beaded and flowing wedding gown, another detail that stood out most was the flowers that abounded at The Lodge at Allardale. A seasonal variety of colors dotted The Lodge inside and out, including a grand archway the bride and groom were married under, along with bouquets, boutonnières and corsages.

Capturing the special moments of MELISSA + BRIAN'S wedding day wasn't just in the decoration details, many special moments were had on the dance floor. Whether dancing the first dance or line dancing with friends and family it wasclear that MELISSA + BRIAN were gonna keep the dancing going all night. 

MELISSA + BRIAN were a wonderful bride and groom to photograph on their special day. Their love for each other and the coming together of their families was more than apparent in the moment and in pictures. A truly special moment that captured these families coming together was BRIAN getting ready in a small restroom with his three new brother-in-laws helping out with ties and cuff links. It's candid moments like this and capturing the final looks of MELISSA'S gown in the floor to ceiling mirror just minutes before the ceremony starts that make WEDDING-DAY-PHOTOGRAPHY exciting.
