An Avon Oaks Country Club Wedding — Katie and Andrew

Katie and Andrew married each other in a beautiful wedding ceremony at St. Raphael Parish in Bay Village, Ohio. When I arrived at Katie’s mom’s house, she was absolutely glowing–and I don’t think it was because she was getting the finishing touches on her make up. She was just radiating happiness and anticipation.  She slipped into her gorgeous Bhldn dress, and we headed for St. Raphael Parish to meet up with her groom. Andrew was already there, waiting with his brothers. Katie hid in a back room as guests filed into the church. When she finally walked down the aisle, the look on Andrew’s face was priceless. Once they said their vows, we headed to Katie’s grandmother’s house on Lake Road for wedding party photos; and I swear the entire time, Katie and Andrew could not take their eyes off each other. From there, we went to Huntington Beach for more wedding party photos down by the water. We had so much fun taking photos on the rocks that jut out into the lake, and slipping through the sand. Katie’s colors of blush pink, white and gold looked beautiful against the blue of the lake. Once we finished at Huntington Beach, we drove to Avon Oaks Country Club for their wedding reception. Guests wrote their well wishes on personalized records, and enjoyed a bottle of Delirium Nocturnum, a Belgian ale, as a centerpiece on each table. Here are some favorites from Katie and Andrew’s Avon Oaks Country Club wedding in Avon, Ohio.

This might be my favorite photo of the day. What started out as a delicate cotton candy sky, turned vivid and gorgeous as the sun went down. Add a little off camera flash, and two people in love, and you have a beautiful image. Avon Oaks Country Club wedding in Avon, Ohio.

Congratulations Katie and Andrew!
