We started with two lovebirds saying vows on the altar of Brenna’s childhood church. Then we moved to one gorgeous sunset for bridal portraits. And finally, the day ended with graceful speeches and a live band enhancing one heck of a good time.
But I’ll be honest, winter weddings in Ohio are always a hit or miss. Sometimes it rains, snows, or is 90 degrees and we don’t know why. Similarly, on this rare February weekend, Ohio provided a day where the weather was not only perfect, but the schedule also ran on time.
If I could define this perfect day to three words: family, love and faith come to mind. Each word sparkled as both families celebrated Brenna and Mike.
To see what I mean, scroll to find the picture of Dr. Congeni hugging his daughter prior to their walk down the aisle! Then see Mike’s face during the first dance! Finally, find grandma busting moves. 🙂 There are way too many moments to list, so basically, see all of Brenna and Mike’s magic below!
