Gary + Andrea : Lancaster, Ohio Wedding

It was raining that morning, but nothing was going to dampen Andrea's spirits as she prepared to marry Gary, the love of her life. She had planned for the light drizzle, having bought matching umbrellas for the bridal party and was not afraid to use them. Her day was going to be perfect- she was about to tie the knot in front of all of her friends in family in the gorgeous Lancaster church her parents had said "I do" in many years ago. So who cared if it rained a little? A wet knot is harder to untie.

Andrea was stunning in her dress and took the time to share special moments with all of her guests before the day was out. She gave a small ornament with her father's picture on it to both of her sisters to match the one she would carry in her bouquet as she walked down the aisle. And although he could not personally be there, his presence was definitely felt by the three sisters during the touching Father-Daughter dance where Andrea's uncle stepped in to do the honor.

Gary and his groomsmen are the kinds of guys who will welcome anyone into a party as long as they're there to have a good time. They were a tight-knit group who have known each other long enough to share a few embarrassing stories if prodded. And they like to share. They were such a delight to work with and I knew the instant they started showing off their GQ modeling poses, that this day was going to end in a great party. 

Gary and Andrea- I hope you two are having an amazing time in Cancun! Thank you so much for letting Blake and I spend the day with you and photograph all of the special moments you two shared. Your love for your family and friends is inspiring and I can't wait to see what your future holds!

Keep smiling!

The morning of the wedding Andrea sat down to open a gift from Gary- a Pandora charm bracelet for her with the first charm being a mini bride and groom.

The rain stopped after the ceremony so we stole a moment during the reception around sunset to take some shots of the newlyweds in this gorgeous light. 

Andrea and her little sister have a small obsession with the "awkward prom pose" so I knew that she'd be willing to do the cheesy, but super cute, "dip and kiss". Nailed it.
