The rain was not about to bring Lauren and Bobby’s amazing wedding down. The wedding entourage braved the storm for some of the most dramatic photographs we’ve seen in a while. In true Ohio fashion, the land was shrouded in darkness courtesy of the world-renowned Ohio moody weather. But all that moodiness made the Toledo Museum of Art a perfect spot to take pictures at.
LET’S TALK ABOUT FLOWERS! DESCRIBE YOUR BOUQUET AND BOUTONNIERES:
When I was choosing flowers, I wanted to have a bouquet that was the classic and timeless look. With my dress being so heavily beaded, I wanted flowers that didn’t clash, so I want with a bouquet consisting mostly of quicksand roses, white ranunculus, and eucalyptus for a little pop of color. Bobby’s boutonniere echoed that look with a simple white ranunculus
TELL US ABOUT THE WEDDING DRESS:
My dress was Morilee by Madeline Gardner. It was fully beaded in silver with a gold underlay and a sweetheart neckline. I felt like it perfectly matched my personality. I wanted something that would really make Bobby say wow.
Also, random fun fact: my prom dress was made by the same designer, and I didn’t know until after I purchased it.
HOW DID YOU FEEL THE MORNING OF YOUR WEDDING? DID YOU HAVE WEDDING DAY JITTERS?
I felt very at ease the morning of the wedding. I was surrounded by my best friends, getting ready to marry the man of my dreams. We spent so long planning the perfect day, and I was so ready to just be partying and having the time of my life with all my favorite people!
PARTY TIME! FIRST OFF, HOW WAS THAT CAKE/DESSERT? AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR CAKE DESIGNER?
The cake was to die for! My family has been using Cakes By Stephanie for every major event that needs dessert since I was 16. They’ve always done a fantastic job, and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else make our wedding cake.
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ONE PHOTOGRAPH TO HIGHLIGHT FROM YOUR WHOLE WEDDING, WHAT PHOTO WOULD THAT BE?
It’s so hard to choose!! But I think it’s this one
