Aliya & Donovan chose a perfect Saturday to get married. With their summer colors of grey, yellow and navy, gorgeous floral arrangements from Bartz Viviano and Dani from Bee for the Day leading the way, this day was simply picture perfect. The ladies got dolled up at The Beehive Salon and Spa and then slipped into their long navy dresses at Aliya's parent's home. Meanwhile, Donovan and his guys were getting ready (two doors down) at Aliya & Donovan's home.
They came together for a first look in the backyard followed by some beautiful portraits by the Maumee River. We were excited for their intimate ceremony at Corpus Christi University Parish by the University of Toledo where they were surrounded by their closest family and friends. We rode along in the limo to Wildwood Metropark where we had some fun with the whole bridal party.
After some fun photos at the park, we made a secret entrance into the Inverness Club dining room while guests enjoyed cocktail hour in a separate room. The huge windows overlooking the golf course made for some dreamy lighting and the floral arrangements and centerpieces were polished and elegant. After our little sneak peek, we joined cocktail hour in the beautiful ballroom with high ceilings and gorgeous chandeliers. When it was time for toasts, Aliya's bridesmaids entertained the room with their very own musical performance. They had us cracking up with their dance moves and extreme creativity. After a delicious dinner, guests enjoyed music from Sounds of Music DJ and created even more fun memories in our photo booth!
We could tell these two were at home in each other's presence and they truly enjoyed the time spent with their best friends in the bridal party. We were honored to have our full team there to retell the story of this beautiful day through photo and film. Keep your eyes peeled for more beautiful images like these and sneak peeks to the wedding video!
