Chelsea & Eddie are just incredible people! It was a blast working with them and I lowkey want them to have another wedding (or killer anniversary party), just so we can do it all again!
First, we caught the most amazing sunset/cloud formation over Evans Lake right outside of The Lake Club! I think it honestly brought Chelsea to tears. This is always one of my favorite parts of any wedding, sneaking the couple away for sunset/night photos. I even got a little “fine art” with it :)
They had a wonderful rehearsal at Aqua Pazzo in Boardman, which just also happened to be their first date spot!
The entire wedding was steeped in tradition—from the church which the family has been a part of for generations to the veil from Eddie’s sister. I love how any wedding can be the start of a new tradition.
Joe Mineo Creative knocked the decor and florals out of the park! The color scheme was ivory, greenery, and many shades of pink and red. There were even fireworks and a killer after party!
I love their “how they met” story too!
From the Bride: Eddie’s uncle has two children in the special education program in the school I teach at, where I am a special education teacher. He would talk to me every morning walking into work saying I needed to go on a date with his nephew, whom I had never met. Eddie had no idea his uncle was saying those things to me as frequently as he did. About a year later, I ran into Eddie, which was the second time we had met, at an event that was at his families country club. He asked me out shortly afterward and our first date was May 13th, 2015. We’ve been inseparable since! Needless to say, his uncle is very pleased.
