St. Martin of Tours Church | Valley City, Ohio
Quailcrest Farm | Wooster, Ohio
I feel so fortunate to have met Tricia + John through a long line of friends of relatives of good friends. First off, they make an absolutely gorgeous couple! But more than that, they are lovely people who are so accommodating to those around them.
Their ceremony took place at St. Martin of Tours on a perfect cool and crisp Halloween afternoon. Their pastor preached about not only the importance of love, but of continually serving one another throughout their marriage. Not only did I find this very powerful advice in my own experience, but I could see in their care for one another how Tricia and John had already put this into action in their relationship.
I had a blast shooting photos of the bridal party that evening who joked about photographers always making the bride take the groom's coat while the groom holds the bride's flowers for photos... Out of chilly necessity I will admit to asking the guys to give up their coats -- Thank goodness for gentlemen with jackets and photographers with wool scarves to huddle under.
The reception was at Quailcrest Farm, a beautiful location with sweeping landscapes behind a quaint barn-style space. One of the vendors there mentioned that Tricia was the most laid-back bride they had ever worked with and he was right! She and John put together a no-fuss day to simply celebrate their true love for one another. Their celebration was complete with plenty of sunflowers, pumpkins, glitter, halloween candy, and flower girls twirling and dancing the night away (with a Princess costume-change later in the night, of course).
Congratulations Tricia + John! I wish you many awesome years of marriage to come.
