I adore Erin's smile.
Jamie, making everything perfect.
WOWZERS TO THAT HOTNESS!!!!!!!!
Erin told me there weren't any spots around the church for fun photos. I hopped out of my car and IMMEDIATELY spotted this in the back yard. DONE AND DONE! My view.
Mikey's view :D
HOW CUTE IS THIS?!
Seconds before walking down the aisle. This is my favorite :!:
This is almost always my favorite part of a wedding day.
Yes… after all of the wedding reception traditions… Eric and his groomsmen thought it would be a good idea to jump in the lake in their tuxes. Their rationalization, "we paid an extra $30 for tux insurance… we're usin' it!" HAHAHA! Can you spot me in this photo?
HEATH, OHIO Maybe you remember from their engagement session blog entry that Mikey and I were there the night Erin & Eric got engaged (and if you didn't remember… there was your reminder). That was a first for us so OBVIOUSLY… were were SO excited to come witness and photograph their day.
Eric is such a sweet and genuine guy. He cares so deeply for everyone in his life. He's also quite ornery. too…. ESPECIALLY around his groomsmen (LOVE IT!). With those guys around, there's NEVER a dull moment! HA!
Erin… AYKM?! (are you kidding me?!) HOW GORGEOUS ARE YOU!!!!!!!!!!! When she walked out of the bathroom with her veil on… I started to get a little teary eyed myself! She just looked so stunning! I can tell you from personal experience… when you put that veil on, you REALLY do feel like a bride. It's that first moment in your day where you realize that YES I'm getting married! I know for me personally… putting my veil in was the first time I cried on my day. Now… of course… I'm not hating on the veilless(I know that's not a word… leave me alone) we all know that I love a simple gardenia in the hair, too. Just my 2¢
Erin & Eric are SO IN LOVE!!!! The way the look at each other just brings chills up and down your back! :D I love a crying groom! (Mine was!) They're surprisingly rare. :D As soon as Erin walked into the sanctuary… Eric was welling up with tears.LOVE IT!!!!
Their church was SO cute. It had such a small town charm about it. There was yellow and orange stained glass everywhere… so the light was so golden pouring in from the outside. When you first walk into the sanctuary, you immediately feel at home and welcome. Does anyone else think of Zelda when you hear the word sanctuary?
Erin and Eric's reception was a lot of fun! They held it in Erin's parents back yard under a tent. The father of the bride, Don, said during his introduction speech that he and Erin wanted to plan a reception that "wasn't boring." So he along with Erin's mom, Pam set up all kinds of fun things for people to do like swimming, fishing and corn hole. The guests loved it.
Thanks for EVERYTHING!!!!!
Love you guys
OK! We've got a slide show HERE, and the full gallery HERE. The user name for the slide show is Erin's last name, and the password is Eric's last name, in all lower case. Depending on browser settings, it may ask for a name and password twice.
It was SO incredibly warm outside and their reception was outdoors under a tent. Most people changed clothes in between the ceremony and reception. My black suit and the 100° heat index did not go together well. So, yes… I was a hot mess. I really need a summer suit. How can my husband always look so dang handsome?! Even when he's talking he's cute! :D I LOVEEEEEE how happy we all are here!!!!!!!!
This photo makes me smile BIG smiles. :D Me with TWO of my brides :D That's the famous JAMEEEEEEEEEEE on the right :) We photographed her wedding in February 2007 where Erin was in HER wedding (which is how we all met). Jamie was Erin's maid of honor. Pretty neat, huh?!
WORKING IT OUT!
The morning they were getting ready Erin was finishing up their "place rocks" I noticed Erin had written "Bobbie" on one of the rocks. I thought… hmm… I wonder if that's me. Then right after that she wrote "Mike" I knew that was for us. My grandma buys me Christmas ornaments with my name… but they ALWAYS spell it wrong… so she always turns the "e" into a heart. I suggested that idea to Erin :) And because of my grandma's genius… I was the only rock with a heart :D PS. aren't "place rocks" a fun idea?!
