One of my Dad’s favorite expressions was a lyric from Cheap Trick: “Everything works if you let it”. These words of wisdom definitely apply to this wedding. Jeff and Lora were planning an August 2016 wedding when, suddenly, their rustic, Medina County venue was closed down. Certainly not anything that a couple wants to deal with when planning their dream day. However, and most fortunately, they were able to re-plan at the gorgeous, also rustic, also Medina County venue, Buffalo Creek Retreat. And their June 2017 wedding went without a hitch on a most beautiful day.
My assistant Valerie started with the guys at Jeff and Lora’s home, for some prep photos, while I met up with the lovely ladies at BCR while they were getting ready. Time always seems to fly extra fast on a wedding day, and before too long, it was time for their First Look, in front of the white barn at BCR, which is Lora’s favorite spot on the grounds (we used it a lot!). After a super sweet, and teary eyed First Look, we made use of the grounds to get the vast majority of photos, including family groups, done before the ceremony. These “front heavy” weddings, where there’s a lot of time before the actual ceremony to do the bulk of the photography, are always ones we look forward to. It really sets the tone for a relaxed day, for everyone involved!
Delicious food by Old Carolina at the reception (maybe too good… had a tough time saying no to seconds… that maple butter on the corn bread…O…M…G…).
This wedding definitely worked out perfectly!
