There really wasn’t anything not to love about Anthony and Lexis’ wedding day at Stambaugh Auditorium! Maybe a little hot. ha! No rain though, which the weather had threatened all week!

Anthony and Alexis met with me for the first time at the end of last year and we talked mostly about planning out their engagement session. Anthony and Alexis are both easy going and funny people, I knew we were going to get a long just fine!

Whispering Pines Castle was the perfect location for their winter engagement session! I love it there and knew it would be a good location for some indoor photos too! Their  photo session went so well and I love their engagement photos!

We met again one month before the wedding to talk more about their day and finalize any last minute plans. I do this with EVERY wedding couple. That last meeting is so important to me! It gives me a VERY good idea of how a wedding day is going to go.

The wedding day was finally here! I started with getting ready photos, and Anthony and Alexis opted for a first look, so we got to talk those on Stambaugh’s beautiful indoor staircase!

After that we drove to Fellows Riverside Gardens for a few photos (Some with their fur-baby Jenkins!! You’ve probably seen him on Instagram! haha!)! The weather was REALLY warm, so we worked to get some beautiful photos then get back to Stambaugh so everyone had some time to cool off before their ceremony!

Their ceremony was beautiful! They ended it with locking their wedding box, a first for me as a wedding photographer!

Shawn, my second shooter, and I took a few photos at Stambaugh after their exit and family formals! One of my FAVORITES is of them kissing in front of the steps with the light coming through the windows! So light and romantic!

The reception was SO fun! Shawn and I loved the DJ and music, everyone was having fun on the dance floor! I am a sucker for kids out their dancing and their flower girl was such a cutie with her blonde curls!

At the end of our time we said our goodbyes to the couple! They were the best and made sure we had cookies to take home! Which we did. ha! My 5 year old might think that if we are gone to take photos that cookies are donuts automatically appear for him to eat. Magically.

Anthony and Alexis! We love you ( and your family and Jenkins!!) and we wish you the best on your future together! We loved being apart of your day, thank you for choosing us!
