Oh man, Halley and Eric’s wedding was gorgeous! The day was perfectly sunny (if a little on the chilly side), and they couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue than Halley’s aunt’s home in Mount Vernon, Ohio.
Halley wore these “jelly” style flats under her gown. Comfortable and lovely, don’t you agree?
This girl had a great group of bridesmaids! They were so laid back and helped with everything!
Meanwhile, the guys snuck down to the basement to watch some college football, have a few drinks and smoke some cigars. All the manly stuff really tuckered this little guy out. He fell asleep less than 5 minutes after his dad (at left) made him lay down on the couch. Aww.
Halley’s brothers were so sweet. Later in the evening I caught this same handsome fellow taking each female relative for a spin on the dance floor.
Tears! Halley cried the whole way down the aisle. They kept the ceremony short to minimize the chance that she’d choke up, but no dice.
Just look at the love these two are radiating. I can’t even handle it. Little known fact for those of you who haven’t met me — I am a total sap. I cry at every wedding I photograph! Ceremony moments, toasts and happy dancing are my weak points.
So, funny thing about this wedding: The ceremony was so short that I was worried I’d miss the kiss! I booked it to the back of the aisle in plenty of time, but even if I hadn’t, I needn’t have worried. It was one of the loooong, slow variety. 😉
Halley and Eric weren’t interested in getting a lot of posed shots, but they let me a few minutes alone with them before cocktail hour. Love them!
Time for details!
Another cool story: On their second date, Halley and Eric went to see some live big band/jazz and fell for the band while they were falling for each other. Stoopid Rooster doesn’t play a lot of weddings, but they had to play for this couple. No option! Sorry!
These kids crack me up!
Instead of doing a send-off with rice or bubbles or streamers or even sparklers, they opted to have a wish lantern lighting. I had never heard of these before, but it was breathtaking. The guests and I were in awe.
