Scott + Michelle : Port Clinton, Ohio Wedding

FILED IN: first look, weddings

They were both nervous. The good kind of nervous where your hands shake a little and you can’t stop walking around in small circles. But all that changed the moment they saw each other that morning at their first look. Michelle was an absolute vision in her dress as she descended the stairs to where Scott was waiting for her at the shore of the Lake. As soon as he turned around to see her and reach out to touch her there was a collective sign between them. All the nerves vanished and were replaced with excitement for the rest of the day.

I was so glad when Michelle and Scott decided to do a first look at the bed and breakfast they were staying at on the shore of Lake Erie. The location was gorgeous and Scott’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time was absolutely perfect.

Scott and Michelle’s wedding was a Mon Ami Winery in Port Clinton, Ohio and full of great, personal details. They had all of the guests sign wine corks as their own form of a guest book and instead of a unity candle or sand, they chose to do unity glass.

Michelle had her two sons, Spencer and Grant, walk her down the aisle and participate in the unity glass ceremony. It was a beautiful ceremony and great to see what a big role Spencer and Grant played in their mom’s very special day.

This is the picture of a very happy woman and a very relieved man- he was not looking forward to standing up there in front of everyone. I’m pretty sure I caught an actual sigh of relief.

Michelle and Scott, thank you so much for letting me capture your gorgeous wedding! It was an absolutely perfect day and such a pleasure to get to know you and your family!

Keep smiling!
