Summer celebrations, mid-July, are the epitome of wedding season. There is something about the sunshine and the excitement that just hits a tad differently than a cozy winter wedding or a brisk fall soiree. Tie in a root beer stand, farm animals, and the most beautiful purple sunset Ohio has ever seen, and you have this Nickajack Farms Wedding with Andrea and Eric!
First of all, I know you think I’m joking, but I’m not. In the heart of Canton is Woody’s Root Beer Stand! Typically when the distance from the ceremony to the reception is a long one I highly suggest a few stops to divvy up your bus time. Andrea and Eric settled on grabbing some root beer + hot dogs and stopping at a garden center before heading to their cocktail hour. This was by far the most unique pit-stop in my ten years of capturing weddings. If I could scream it from the rooftops I would – never discount the power of food!
Speaking of, Andrea and Eric had a beautiful cake, a slew of homemade cookies, and an ice cream station from New Baltimore Homemade Ice Cream. I’m fairly certain everyone left happy and full!
Secondly, a Nickajack Farms Wedding isn’t complete without some farm animals! Perfectly enough, Eric LOVES goats and if anything was on his to do list before the party it was to see a few! Scroll down to see all the other animals (horses and even a pig named Berlin!).
Finally, no summer wedding is complete without a sunset. This mid-July sun decided to end the day with the most beautiful purple hue! It exquisitely matched Eric’s suit and the rest of their purple colors! if you scroll down for anything, at least do it to see the sunset! // xo
