You guys know I’m a sucker for sentimental locations; well this one pretty much takes the cake. Amanda and Matt chose to have their wedding at the Manor House in November at Wildwood metropark because in November 2016, one day before they closed on their new home, that’s where they got engaged! How sweet is that!

We frequent the the Toledo Wildwood metro park often. Like so often I feel like I could be a tour guide of the grounds with all of the portraits we take there so it was very neat to get to photograph a wedding inside the Manor House! The architecture is gorgeous, all of the antique furniture, stairwells and fine details make for a gorgeous wedding venue.

The couple had the sweetest first look with plenty of tears shed. We then walked around the grounds a bit to get some photos of the two of them at the location Matt proposed. The bridal party of their siblings and friends joined us after their first look to get all of the photos done before the ceremony. That way they could relax and enjoy themselves during cocktail hour.

Matt and Amanda were wonderful to work with! Having a couple so in love and so happy to be getting married makes my job easy. The love they have for each other speaks volumes.

After the nuptials, the party took place at The Blarney event center in downtown Toledo. Navy linens lined the tables while greenery and flowers were perched in beer bottles along side white candles. I love how they tied in elements throughout the wedding like the hops plants in the boutonnieres and beer bottle table arrangements. It was the perfect mix of elegant and fun!

Dinner was awesome! Catered via Pepperoni Tony’s pizza food truck which houses a real brick oven. Hot slices of fire grilled pizza was just what we needed to fuel the party brought by Joe of Book that DJ. Cake and Cupcakes were served for dessert.

Make sure you keep scrolling until the father daughter dance… such sweet moments!

The entire day was perfect and we had such a great time documenting this chapter for Matt and Amanda!
